BERLIN – The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran Ali Khamenei on Sunday issued a series of antisemitic-laced tweets against Israel and Britain.
He wrote that “The Zionist regime and its criminal supporters recognize no bounds in brutality and trampling of moral norms. They consider genocide, destruction, the massacre of children and women and any oppression permissible in Palestine. This rabid, predatory dog attacks innocent ppl.”
He continued that “The Zionist regime has proven it doesn’t abide by any treaty and doesn’t understand any language but the language of force. Israel has proven it only knows force. It cannot be spoken to except with the Palestinian nation’s language of power and the Islamic nation’s global power.”
Khamenei has frequently denied the Holocaust over the years and declared the need to “cut out the cancer” of Israel,
He tweeted that “The Zionist regime’s status in global public opinion is now worse than any time in its dark history, and the reason for its inception is seriously questioned. Global protests from Asia to Latin America and Europe show that a global resistance has been formed against Zionism.”
Khamenei also wrote that “Britain has always been a source of evil and catastrophe for the nations in our region. They’ve hurt the lives of nations in ways unparalleled in the world. In a malicious move in #Palestine, they displaced a nation and destroyed a country with a history of thousands of years. https://twitter.com/khamenei_ir/status/1262012550901792769
