Though long denied by supporters of the Islamic regime in Iran and Palestinian terrorist organizations, the connection between the these entities has been confirmed by Iran’s “Supreme Leader,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Iranian exile journalist Amir Taheri reports:

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has published a new book called “Palestine,” a 416-page screed against the Jewish state. A blurb on the back cover credits Khamenei as “The flagbearer of Jihad to liberate Jerusalem.”

A friend sent me a copy from Iran, the only place the book is currently available, though an Arabic translation is promised soon.

In the book, Taheri reports, Khamenei states that if he were to accomplish the elimination of the Israel, “the West’s hegemony and threats will be discredited” in the Middle East and “the hegemony of Iran will be promoted.” He writes that the Holocaust is “a propaganda ploy” and that “If there was such a thing, we don’t know why it happened and how.”


Khamenei boasts about the success of his plans to make life impossible for Israelis through terror attacks from Lebanon and Gaza. His latest scheme is to recruit “fighters” in the West Bank to set up Hezbollah-style units.

“We have intervened in anti-Israel matters, and it brought victory in the 33-day war by Hezbollah against Israel in 2006 and in the 22-day war between Hamas and Israel in the Gaza Strip,” he boasts.

In a confrontation with Code Pink protesters who support the Obama administration’s deal with Iran, Senator Ted Cruz said that “If this deal goes through… over a hundred billion dollars will flow to Iran, that they will use to fund Hamas, Hezbollah, the Houthis, and radical Islamic terrorists. Those billions of dollars will be used to fund jihadists that will murder Americans, that will murder Israelis, that will murder Europeans. Does that make any sense?”
