Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was at it again this week, threatening to wipe the State of Israel off the map.
Khamenei's Twitter post, in English, further clarified that it's not only the policies of the current Israeli government with which his nation disagrees. The Iranian regime does not accept Israel's existence, period.
The Iranian leader tweeted:
Our stance against Israel is the same stance we have always taken. #Israel is a malignant cancerous tumor in the West Asian region that has to be removed and eradicated: it is possible and it will happen. 7/31/91 #GreatReturnMarch
The concluding hashtag was a reference to the mass Hamas-led infiltration attempts along the Gaza-Israel border, a volatile situation that Israeli officials say is being financed and encouraged by Iran.
Knowing by now that bring rational arguments to the table is an exercise in futility, the Israel Embassy in the US instead turned to satire, responding to Khamenei's tweet in perhaps the most perfect way possible:
