Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei Calls For The Annihilation Of Israel

Twice in the past week, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has called for the annihilation of the State of Israel.

In a July 23, 2014 public address marking the upcoming Qods (Jerusalem) Day, which this year fell on July 25, he said that the "only solution" for Israel's "wolf-like and child-killer regime" was "its annihilation and liquidation" (see MEMRI Inquiry and Analysis No. 1107, Qods Day In Iran: Tehran Calls For Annihilation Of Israel And For Arming The West Bank,July 25, 2014, and MEMRI TV Clip No. 4366, Iran's Leader Khamenei: Armed Struggle Should Continue until Israel Is Destroyed by a Referendum, July 23, 2014).

On July 26, Khamenei posted a message on his official Facebook page,, also calling for the annihilation of the State of Israel. His post was titled: "Why Should & How Can Israel Be Eliminated? Ayatollah Khamenei's Answer To 9 Key Questions About The Elimination Of #Israel."
