TEHRAN (FNA) – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei deplored the recent threat to Iran by Sheldon Adelson, the main donor of the US Republican Party, saying he should receive a slap in the mouth for calling on Washington to use nuclear weapons against Iran.
“If Americans are telling the truth that they are serious about negotiation, they should slap these prating people in the mouth and crush their mouths,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a large number of Iranian school and university students in Tehran on Sunday on the threshold of November 4, the anniversary of the US embassy takeover in Tehran back in 1979.
“A government (the US) which is under the illusion that it is responsible for world and nuclear issues doesn’t have a damn right to pose nuclear threat to another country,” he underlined.
“Today, Americans care the most for the decadent Zionist regime and circles because the (US) administration and Congress are dominated by powerful capitalists and Zionist companies…, but we are not forced to treat them with care,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
“We have said since the very first day (of the Islamic Revolution), and we do say it now and we will say it in future as well that that we believe the Zionist regime is an illegitimate and bastard regime,” he added.
