Israel acting like a ‘rabid dog’, fumes Khamenei

Tehran : Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urged the Islamic world on Tuesday to arm Palestinians to allow

them to counter what he called Israel’s “genocide” in the Gaza Strip.  In a speech marking the Muslim festival of Eid al-Fitr,

Khamenei said Israel was acting like a “rabid dog” and “a wild wolf,” causing a human catastrophe that must be resisted. “A people surrounded in a small place with closed borders, unsure of having water and electricity, this population faces

an armed enemy,” Khamenei said.

“The people resist unabated. This is a lesson for all,” he added in remarks broadcast live from the capital’s Imam Khomeini mosque, built in memory of the late founder of the

Islamic republic. Khamenei, Iran’s ultimate authority, dismissed talk of a ceasefire, dubbing it a ploy by the United States and European states to save Israel’s “Zionist regime”.
