The new war of words started when Iran’s so-called moderate president Hassan Rouhani toldparticipants in an Islamic conference that Israel was a “cancerous tumor” and “a fake regime” founded by Western nations.
While calling upon the Islamic world to establish a “joint force” that could win the “battle against criminals” Rouhani claimed Israel had killed and displaced the (non-existing) “historic nation of Palestine.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu responded to Rouhani’s belligerent rhetoric by warning Iran that Israel knows how to defend itself against the “murderous Iranian regime”.
His statement drew a prolonged response by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who on Sunday claimed “the Zionist regime is clearly weaker than 10 and 20 years ago,” while bragging Hezbollah and Hamas had won the wars in 2005, 2008, 2012, 2014 and in 2018 during what he called “the two-day war”.
On Monday, Khamenei again used his Twitter account to blast the United States and Israel.
The Iranian dictator wished Israel and the U.S. “to hell” and predicted the victory of “the resistance”.
“ To hell with the U.S. and Zionist regime for threatening the Iranian nation. Their threats and atrocities have so far failed and will continue to fail; the sanctions will also be defeated by the grace of resistance,” Kkamenei’s tweet stated.
Rouhani’s remarks drew the condemnation of both the U.S. and the European Union (EU) which saidin a statement that the Iranian president’s remarks “were totally unacceptable” while reassuring Israel that the 28-nation bloc would remain fundamentally committed to the security of the Jewish state.
