Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rebuked the anti-Semitic threats of Iranian dictator Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday after the Iranian leader used Nazi imagery to threaten Israel with destruction.
Netanyahu tweeted: “Khamenei’s threats to carry out ‘The Final Solution’ against Israel bring to mind the Nazi ‘Final Solution’ plan to annihilate the Jewish People. He should know that any regime that threatens the destruction of the State of Israel faces a similar danger.”
Khamenei’s threats to carry out “The Final Solution” against Israel bring to mind the Nazi “Final Solution” plan to annihilate the Jewish People.

The anti-Semitic image that Khamenei shared on Twitter read, “Palestine will be free. The final solution. Resistance is referendum.” The ‘final solution’ refers to the plan by the Nazis to eradicate the Jewish people and lead to the mass extermination of 6 million Jews during the Holocaust.
The poster shows a conquered Jerusalem with Palestinian and Hezbollah flags flying over iconic parts of the city.
After an international outcry, Khamenei claimed his “final solution” is that Israel should have a referendum where every “Palestinian” can vote and overthrow Israel by democratic vote. A nonsensical argument coming from a tyrannical regime that has not held elections for the Iranian people for the past 41-years and brutally oppresses the same people it is supposed to represent.
Furthermore, there is no indication that Iran wants to bring about its “final solution” for Israel peacefully. Just this week Khamenei said he wanted to arm the West Bank just as he was already arming Hamas in Gaza. Iran funds and controls Hezbollah, the Lebanese terrorist organisation on Israel’s northern border, an organisation that declares Jihad (armed conflict) against Israel and seeks to destroy Israel and the Jewish people. Iran is also amassing forces in Syria and Iraq, further surrounding the Jewish state militarily. They are sending hundreds-of-millions of pounds to terrorist causes each year whilst the Iranian people struggle for their basic needs.
To top all of this off, the Iranian regime is advancing its nuclear capabilities with the expressed aim of developing a nuclear weapon to destroy Israel. They test ballistic missiles (which are capable of carrying nuclear warheads) and write “death to Israel” on the side of these missiles while they test them.
Sadly, despite all of this obvious aggression towards Israel, there are many countries who are ignoring these threats and continuing to trade with Iran, because of it’s vast oil reserves.
The United Kingdom is one of these countries, which is why we need to put more pressure on our government to end all ties with the Iranian regime until they completely turn away from their hatred of Israel.
