Israel is an artificial “outgrowth” in the Middle East that “will disappear,” Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said ahead of rallies on Friday against Israel and supporting the Palestinians.

The annual Quds Day marches were started in 1979 after the founding of the Islamic republic. The protests use the word Quds, derived from Arabic, to designate the city of Jerusalem.

Khamenei, in a speech late yesterday, said the “star of hope” that shined on Iran during its Islamic revolution, and in its 1980-1988 war with Iraq “will also shine for Palestine and its Islamic land will definitely be returned to the Palestinian nation.” He railed against Israel, saying: “This bogus and fake Zionist outgrowth will disappear off the landscape of geography.” Friday’s rallies, he said, would be “a blow to the enemies of Islam and Palestine” and added that Iran views supporting the Palestinian cause “a religious duty.” This year’s Quds Day marches will take place amid heightened tensions between Iran and Israel.

  1. Well at least the ayatollah clarifies this hatred against Israel – an Islamic holy war, nothing more, nothing less.

    It is NOT about land. Any reference to an “occupation” by Israel is a false narrative.

    Problem is, even this clarification doesn’t fit with the left’s narrative, and so will be irrelevant to the statements parroted by non-muslims in today’s Destroy Israel day.

  2. Recently the rhetoric coming out of Iran refers to Israel as a “tumor”. I would like to address that false, projective narrative. If there is a tumor then the cancerous tumor in our midst is islam. It destroys everything it infects. The only cure is eradication and the best weapons are the facts.

  3. Iran is trying to get Israel to attack them so they can retaliate with their new missiles, missiles Iran is already threatening the Gulf States with unless they also attack Israel.
