Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei went on a tirade on Wednesday in a long series of Twitter posts, as he called for the destruction of Israel and vowed Iran will stand behind anyone who opposes Israel.

Khamenei has been raging against the United States every day this week.

“Their warmongering, promoting terrorism, injustice and more recently their scandalous management of the #COVID19 pandemic are some of the factors that have led to global hatred toward US rule,” he declared on Sunday.

Khamenei taunted President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, tweeting, “A part of this hatred towards the US is due to the presence of these gentlemen heading the current US government. On one side there’s Physician Trump! On the other side is the lowly, ranting Secretary of State who keeps making illogical, nonsensical comments here & there.”

Khamenei then called for the Palestinians to be armed. He tweeted, “The West Bank must be armed, just as Gaza. The only thing that can reduce the Palestinians’ hardships is the hand of power. Otherwise, compromise won’t reduce a bit of the cruelty of this usurping, evil, wolf-like entity.”

“The Zionist regime is the most evident example of state terrorism. Ever since Britain’s anti-Islamic, antihuman policies put the Zionists to rule in #Palestine, they have been acting like a cancerous tumor, furthering their goals by massacring children, women and men,” Khamenei added.

Pompeo had had enough, and lashed out with the following response:

The United States condemns Supreme Leader Khamenei’s disgusting and hateful anti-Semitic remarks. They have no place on Twitter or on any other social media platform. We know Khamenei’s vile rhetoric does not represent the Iranian people’s tradition of tolerance.

The leader of the world’s top sponsor of terrorism and anti-Semitism denies the Holocaust, sends money and weapons to anti-Israel terrorists, and now has invoked the Nazi call for the Final Solution. I ask all nations: Is this someone who can be trusted with deadly weapons?

Khamenei raged on…. and on, and on.  He added:

Today, some Persian Gulf states have committed the biggest treachery against their own history and the history of the Arab world. They have betrayed #Palestine by supporting Israel. Will the nations of these states tolerate their leaders’ betrayal?

Saudi’s blatant relations with the Zionist regime is truly a dagger that has stabbed #Palestine and the Islamic nation. The Saudis have committed a major act of treachery. They are culpable, but even here the US is involved.

These Arab states around us should know that the US is not trustworthy. The US regards them as tools, tools for protecting the Zionist regime and U.S.’s imperialistic interests in the region.

The Zionist regime has no power or strength on its own. Without help, it cannot even stand on its feet. Today, two factors are upholding this regime:
1. US’s unconditional, shameless support
2. Arab and Islamic govts refraining from supporting #Palestine

The Zionist regime has proven it won’t abide by any treaty & understands no logic except force. The nature of the Zionist regime is incompatible with peace, because the Zionists seek to expand their territories & will certainly not be limited to what they have already occupied.

Eliminating the Zionist regime doesn’t mean eliminating Jews. We aren’t against Jews. It means abolishing the imposed regime & Muslim, Christian & Jewish Palestinians choose their own govt & expel thugs like Netanyahu. This is “Eliminating Israel” & it will happen.

A proposal for a referendum to choose the type of govt for the historical country of #Palestine was registered with the UN as offered by Iran. We say the true Palestinians with Palestinian roots of at least 100 years, and Palestinians living abroad, choose the govt of Palestine.

Comprehensive struggles by the Palestinian nation – political, military & cultural – should continue till the usurpers submit to the referendum for the Palestinian nation. This nation should determine what political system should rule there; struggle must continue until then.

We will support and assist any nation or any group anywhere who opposes and fights the Zionist regime, and we do not hesitate to say this.

Pompeo announced Wednesday afternoon that the United States has slapped sanctions on some Iranian officials:

Today the U.S. sanctioned Iran’s Minister of Interior, Rahmani Fazli, and others under human rights-related sanctions authorities. Under Fazli’s orders, many peaceful protestors have been killed, among them a 12-year-old walking home from school. The abuse must stop.

The U.S. also designated Ali Fallahian. As the head of Iran’s intelligence service from 1989 to 1997, he was behind multiple assassinations and attacks, including the 1995 killing of U.S. exchange student Alisa Flatow and the 1994 Jewish community center bombing in Buenos Aires.
