In advance of “Quds Day,” held on the final Friday of Ramadan as a display of Iranian solidarity with the Palestinians, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said of Israel that Iran seeks “to save this Islamic state from the oppressive Zionist fingernails.”

Iran’s supreme leader echoed the usual anti-Semitic commentary coming out of the Islamic Republic, saying Israel would “disappear from the geographical landscape” and be replaced by a Palestinian state, the Mehr news agency reported.

“With God’s help, this year as well the Iranian nation will punch the faces of the enemies of Islam on Quds Day,” Khamenei said.
