In the middle of a rant about how the United States is to blame for the current tragedy in Aleppo, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khameini remembered what is really important to him: the eradication of Israel.
As I‘ve said before, if Muslims & Palestinians unite & all fight, the Zionist regime will not be in existence in 25 years.— Khamenei.ir (@Khamenei.ir) 1481726966.0
Conservatives and others are pointing out the incongruity between what President Barack Obama tells us about the regime on the other side of his vaunted Iran Deal, and what the regime regularly puts out as propaganda. Here Khameini assures those who want Israel obliterated that Iran is very much focused on this goal:
Despite involvement in some regional issues, Iran has specified #Palestine issue priority of Muslim world & meets its duties in this regard.— Khamenei.ir (@Khamenei.ir) 1481723476.0
And he accuses the United States of blaming Islam for the crisis in Syria:
Propaganda of US & its regional allies seeks eruption of various more conflicts & introducing faith as a factor in crises is a lie.— Khamenei.ir (@Khamenei.ir) 1481724075.0
Sunni people of #Aleppo, #Mosul & other cities have been& are being massacred by criminal Takfiris, thus crises are not about Shia or Sunni.— Khamenei.ir (@Khamenei.ir) 1481724280.0
This was the same leader who called the capture of U.S. sailors by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as "God's will" and later awarded the Iranian troops "victory" medals in an attempt to humiliate the United States.
President-elect Donald Trump has promised to completely undo Obama's Iran deal, which he called "the worst deal ever made," but the fate of the agreement is still in question as Trump shown a propensity for moderating his tone since his victory. Trump's team also says that they are looking to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem — another action that would infuriate Muslims but show an aggressive support of Israel.
