Khamenei: “Israel’s Annihilation Is the Only Real Cure”

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said yesterday that he believes there is only one solution for the “problem” that is Israel:

“Israel’s annihilation is the only real cure, but that doesn’t mean destroying Jews in this region,” he said in his speech, which was posted on his website [Persian link].

He made the comment during an address in which he urged a referendum of Jews and Arabs living in Israel in which they would vote on an end to the “Zionist state.” Until that happens, he said, the way forward must be through “resistance.”

Back in November 2013, Khamenei suggested:

“Zionist officials cannot be called humans, they are like animals, some of them,” said Khamenei. “The Israeli regime is doomed to failure and annihilation,” he said.

Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani attacked disunity in the Muslim world, saying that if things were different, Israel would not be notching up successes in its operation in Gaza.

“If unity and solidarity was ruling the Islamic world, an occupier regime did not dare to commit these crimes in a small land for 17 days,” Rouhani said.
