Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: I Predicted Israel Would Not Last For Another 25 Years, But They Are In A Hurry, Want It To Be Over Earlier

Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said in an April 4, 2023 address before senior Iranian officials that aired on Channel 1 (Iran) that even Israel’s leaders predict that Israel will not reach its 80th year. He said that Israel is weak and politically unstable, and he claimed that Israel has recently announced that two million Jews will leave the country in the “near future”. The audience chanted: “Death to Israel!”

Ali Khamenei: "In its 75 years, [Israel] never had such dreadful problems like it has today. First, political instability – in four years, they switched four prime ministers. Their coalitions dissolve before they are fully formed. They form a coalition and shortly after, it falls apart. The old political parties or the new ones gradually fall apart. In other words, they become so weak, that it is like they're being dismantled. If you notice, there is a huge polarization across this artificial regime. Aside from the Palestinian issue – they have internal polarization. The 100,000 or 200,000 who demonstrate in Tel Aviv and other cities indicate this. They might hit some targets with four missiles, but this will not compensate for this. They are experiencing political instability in the full sense of the word. They have announced that soon the number of Jews leaving Israel will reach two million. They said that about two million people would leave the Zionist regime in the near future. Their own officials repeatedly warn that their annihilation is near. Their president, their former prime minister, their security chief, and their defense minister say: 'Our destruction is near and we will not make it to 80 years.'"

Crowd: "Death to Israel!"

Khamenei: "I said that they will not get to see the next 25 years, but they seem to be in a hurry and want it to be over earlier."
