The Al-Quds rallies to reclaim Jerusalem from the Jews have been cancelled this year, but the Iranian regime is as determined as ever, not just to end Israeli rule over Jerusalem, but to end Israel itself. This objective was stated in no uncertain terms in an offensive Iranian poster calling for ‘a final solution”. Faced with an international outcry, Ayatollah Khameini tweets he means to eliminate Israel, not Jews. The Times of Israel reports:
Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday said he seeks Israel’s destruction but not the annihilation of all Jews, after Israeli and American leaders accused him of encouraging genocide.
He said Iran would support any nation or group that fights against Israel.
Khamenei was commenting on a poster published on his website that used the words “final solution” in calling for Israel’s destruction, a term usually associated with Nazi Germany’s efforts to eliminate all Jews during the Holocaust.
“Eliminating the Zionist regime doesn’t mean eliminating Jews. We aren’t against Jews. It means abolishing the imposed regime ; Muslim, Christian ; Jewish Palestinians choose their own govt ; expel thugs like [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu,” Khamenei wrote on his Twitter account.
