Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has again called openly for the destruction of Israel.
“This barbaric, wolf like & infanticide regime of #Israel which spares no crime has no cure but to be annihilated,” he wrote on his official Twitter account. “The only means to confront a barbaric regime like #Israel is arming the Palestinians,” he continued.
“They demolish homes & farms in #West Bank, humiliate people, cut their water & electricity, kill their children & youth! #Free Palestine,” he wrote.
The post begins with ‘’Why? Because throughout its existence “the fake Zionist regime has tried to realize its goals by means of infanticide, homicide, violence & iron fist.”
This post comes days after the Wall Street Journal revealed that US President Obama wrote a secret letter to Khamenei that suggested the two nations could cooperate in fighting against the Islamic State.
In the letter, Obama said that any cooperation would be dependent on Iran reaching a nuclear deal with world powers by November. 24.
On Friday Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Iran should not be included in any coalition that is formed to fight Islamic State.
“Iran is completely unacceptable as a partner for any coalition,” said Lieberman, stating that this was true even when fighting extremist forces in Syria and Iraq.
