The decade's most triggering comedy
Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said during an address to his country this week that “death to America” is not just a slogan or a chant, it’s the country’s official policy toward the U.S.
The remarks come as the Islamic Republic, which is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, has fueled attacks against Israel over the last month through several terrorist proxy groups, including Hamas, which murdered 1,400 Israelis. Terrorist leaders with Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad have repeatedly stated that Iran was the main backer behind their activities, providing them with money, weapons, and training.
Khamenei made the remarks Wednesday on Iran’s Channel 1, according to a video clip translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.
“The situation between America and Iran is this: When you chant ‘Death to America!’ it is not just a slogan – it is a policy,” he said. “I have stated the reasons previously. For many years, from the 1940s to the 1970s – that is 30 years – the Americans did everything they could do against the Iranian nation. They hit Iran in any way they could – financially, economically, politically, scientifically, and morally.”
“If it were not for America’s support, if it were not for the support of U.S. weapons, the corrupt and artificial Zionist regime would have been destroyed in the first week,” he claimed. “It would have collapsed. The Americans are behind this.”
He also claimed that Iran was not helping push anti-Semitic rallies across the world.
