Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the theocratic dictator of Iran, tweeted Wednesday that Israel would not survive for 25 more years.
“Firstly, you will not see 25 years; God willing, there will be nothing as Zionist regime by next 25 years. Secondly, until then, struggling, heroic and jihadi morale will leave no moment of serenity for Zionists,” he tweeted.
Khamenei recently released a book detailing his plans for destroying Israel over time. The so-called “Supreme Leader” added a message for “The Great Satan,” which is how the regime refers to the United States. Contrary to the Obama administration’s assertions that the U.S. will be able to use nuclear inspections under the Iran deal to find out more about Iran’s nuclear programs, Khamenei said that Americans would remain barred from the country.
In Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivered an address backing the Iran deal, warning that she would be willing to use war to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Democrats are celebrating the fact that they may be able to filibuster a vote on the Iran deal in the Senate.
Meanwhile, opponents of the Iran deal gathered for a rally against it.
