Iranian ‘Supreme Leader’ Khamenei Delivers ‘Quds Day’ Rant Against Israel

Iran’s so-called “Supreme Leader,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, delivered a lengthy speech devoted to the elimination of the State of Israel on Friday, as the Islamist regime marked “Quds Day” — its annual day of demonstrations and rallies dedicated to the Jewish state’s destruction.

The televised speech, also transcribed on his Twitter feed, repeated most of the themes articulated by Khamenei on similar occasions in the past. Much of what he said was taken from a book he wrote in 2011 entitled “Palestine,” which regime functionaries have energetically promoted.

“Israel is not a country, but a terrorist base against the nation of Palestine and other Muslim nations,” Khamenei said.

Khamenei predicted that the “willpower” of the Palestinians would eventually secure Israel’s defeat.
