Netanyahu to Khamenei: Those Who Threaten Israel Place Themselves in Danger
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Friday responded to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s latest statement against Israel.
"We say again - those who threaten Israel with extermination place themselves in similar danger," said Netanyahu after Khamenei stated earlier that "Israel is a cancerous growth in the Middle East."
Speaking on the occasion of the Iranian Al-Quds Day in Tehran, Khamenei threatened that "the Zionist virus will not last long and the Zionist regime will not survive - and will be destroyed.”
The comments mark the second time this week that Khamenei has threatened Israel. Earlier this week, the Supreme Leader posted a tweet in which he threatened to implement the Nazi "Final Solution" against Israel.
After Netanyahu responded to those threats, Khamenei asserted that in using the term “Final Solution”, he did not refer to Jews but rather only to the State of Israel. (Arutz Sheva / VFI News)
