A gruesome photo of an Iranian hanging in a public execution was being promoted on Tuesday by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Facebook account in a campaign against Iran’s religious and political leaders, the unelected Ayatollahs.

The caption of the photo said, “Don’t Let the Ayatollah’s WIN,” underlined in blood, that matched the trickle coming from the hanging man’s head. At the bottom of the graphic, the caption read, “Don’t give Iran the capability to build an atomic bomb.”

The photo was sourced to AFP and ImageBank Israel.

Netanyahu, who is on a state visit in Japan, on Tuesday told Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida, in Tokyo, that Israel sympathizes with Japanese concerns over North Korea because of a similar threat in the Middle East from in Iran.

“We are interested in peace and stability throughout the world,” Netanyahu said. “We see a danger and a challenge posed by a rogue state arming itself with nuclear weapons. In your case it’s North Korea and we obviously sympathize and understand the predicament facing you. We are faced with such a rogue state in the form of Iran and its quest to develop nuclear weapons.”

“I think yesterday’s UN report is another example of how Iran continues to deceive the world and advance its nuclear program,” Netanyahu said. “Clearly the Ayatollahs cannot be trusted and if the international community wants to avoid the specter of nuclear terrorism, they must assure that Iran, the foremost sponsor of terrorism on the planet, not have the capability to develop nuclear weapons.

“This is our number one concern but I think it should be shared by everyone who is concerned by the proliferation of nuclear terrorism and nuclear weapons,” he said.
