Iran’s Chief ‘Anti-Zionist-Not-Antisemite’ Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Slips Up

Late last year, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei denied he had a problem with Jews.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that he does not have a problem with Jews, just with the Jewish state.

“The disappearance of Israel does not mean the disappearance of the Jewish people, because we have nothing against them,” Khamenei said, in Tehran at the 33rd International Islamic Unity Conference, the AFP reported citing Khamenei’s official website.

“We are not anti-Semitic. Jews are living in utmost safety in our country. We only support the people of Palestine and their independence,” he also said.

And this tweet of his today started off relatively OK, with him remembering to use the “Z” word (although the word “filthy” was a bit much). But then I guess he found it too hard to hide his true feelings.

There, there, Khamenei. I know it must be hard pretending for so long.
