Khamenei Tweets Plan to End Israel(Ha’aretz)
(dailyalert.org, Nov. 10, 2014)
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has put forth a plan to eliminate Israel, saying that the only way to stop the “Israeli crimes” is to eliminate the “fake Zionist regime.”
Until the plan can be put into motion, however, Khamenei prescribes “powerful confrontation and resolute and armed resistance.”
He also accused Israel of poisoning Yasser Arafat.

On the eve of the nuclear talks in Oman on Nov. 9, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khameini repeated his call to annihilate Israel and arm the Palestinians in the West Bank.
The Supreme Leader’s statements demonstrate Iran’s growing self-confidence, fed by several recent developments in the region (Shi’ite opposition taking control of Yemen; Assad’s survival; greater hold over Iraq; escalation of the situation in Jerusalem) and the mixed messages from Washington and the West tying the conclusion of a nuclear agreement to the general normalization of relations with Iran and to joint efforts to combat the Islamic State.
Iran continues to be uncompromising in its position on Israel and the Palestinians, meaning: no political arrangement, believing the solution is to involve all Arabs in the struggle until Israel is annihilated.
