Iran’s Khamenei Slams ‘Zionist Network’ as Iranian Jews Plead With Obama
JNS.org – Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei gave his annual address to Muslims on Hajj pilgrimage in which he referred to Iran’s “main enemy” as “the criminal Zionist network.”
Khamenei said that Syria “has come under the attack of arrogant powers and their regional agents because of supporting anti-Zionist orientations” and that these powers, “headed by the USA, conceal their true character with the help of comprehensive and advanced propaganda tools,” Yedioth Ahronoth reported.
Meanwhile, Iranian Jews sent a letter to U.S. President Barack Obama stating that he has an “unrepeatable” chance to resolve the dispute with Iran over its nuclear program. If the U.S. doesn’t seize this chance, “it will be in the benefit of those who are against the normalization of ties between Iran and the US,” the letter, signed by Tehran’s Jewish community leader Homayoun Sameyah Najaf Abady, read according to AFP.
