Iran’s ruler took to Twitter on Christmas Eve to remind the world that “if Jesus were alive today, he would stand up against Israeli crimes.”
Tehran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, used his Twitter account to lambaste Israel by invoking Jesus.
Khamenei also conflated Israeli “crimes” in Gaza with the racial unrest that has spread in the United States following the shooting death of an unarmed black man by police in Ferguson, Missouri.
