Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei took to Twitter on Saturday where he unleashed a string of vitriolic tweets against Israel.
In one of the tweets Khamenei writes: "This barbaric, wolflike & infanticidal regime of #Israel which spares no crime has no cure but to be annihilated. #HandsOffAlAqsa. "
In another tweet Khamenei accuses Israel of poisoning the late Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat.
He also tweeted that the "only means to confront a barbaric regime like Israel is arming West Bank."
"They demolish homes & farms in #WestBank, humiliate people, cut their water & electricity, kill their children & youth! #FreePalestine," he wrote. The Wall Street Journal
reported on Thursday that US President Barack Obama sent Khamenei a letter suggesting cooperation in the fight against Islamic State.
On Friday Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said
Iran should not be included in any coalition that is formed to fight Islamic State.
“Iran is completely unacceptable as a partner for any coalition,” said Liberman, stating that this was true even when fighting extremist forces in Syria and Iraq.
