Iran’s Supreme Leader Praises Calls for Death of U.S., Israel

In a speech just four days after Iran completed a nuclear deal with the West, the country’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, gave a speech before a huge crowd and praised it for calling for the death of Israel and the United States, The Times of Israel reported on Saturday.

Iran’s supreme leader on Saturday hailed the Iranian masses for demanding the destruction of Israel and America, and said he hoped that God would answer their prayers.

In a viciously anti-US speech delivered in Tehran four days after Iran and the world powers signed an accord designed to thwart Iran’s nuclear program, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei praised “the slogans of the people of Iran” which “indicated what directions they’re heading for,” according to the English translation of his speech by Iran’s Press TV. …

He castigated America for its support of Israel — which he called the “terrorist, child-killing Zionist regime.” And he said Iran could never engage in discussions or reach an agreement with an America that backed Israel.

In conjunction with his speech, Khamenei issued a series of hostile tweets on Twitter:
