Iran’s Khamenei Lashes out in Tweets Against Israel, UK
On Sunday, Ali Khamenei, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, issued a series of tweets railing against Israel and Britain.
He wrote that “The Zionist regime & its criminal supporters recognize no bounds in brutality & trampling of moral norms. They consider genocide, destruction, the massacre of children & women, & any oppression permissible in Palestine. This rabid, predatory dog attacks innocent ppl.”
Khamenei wrote that “Britain has always been a source of evil & 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 & destroyed a country with a history of thousands of years.”
Khamenei has frequently denied the Holocaust, and in 2012 declared the need to "cut out the cancer" of Israel. (VFI News)
