Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Sunday accused Israel of perpetrating “the worst kind of terrorism for the last 60 years,” noting that it was far more “barbaric” than the Paris terror attacks two weeks ago by Islamic State militants that killed 129.

In a letter addressed to Western youth in the wake of the Paris attacks, the supreme leader said there was no violence as “atrocious” as Israeli settlement construction.

“The oppressed people of Palestine have experienced the worst kind of terrorism for the last sixty years,” he wrote. “If the people of Europe have now taken refuge in their homes for a few days and refrain from being present in busy places it is decades that a Palestinian family is not secure even in its own home from the Zionist regime’s death and destruction machinery.”
