Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s office released a poster on May 19 calling for the “Final Solution” against Israel.

The Jerusalem Post reported that the poster states in all capital letters, “Palestine will be free.” Below it are the words “The final solution: Resistance until referendum.” The poster depicts protesters at the Temple Mount holding Hezbollah and Palestinian flags, as well as photos of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a United States precision airstrike in January.


Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt tweeted, “Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the #1 state sponsor of anti-Semitism + terror, is calling for the “final solution” to destroy the Jewish state. He uses a Nazi slogan associated with genocide and envisions terrorist groups storming the Temple Mount. Let that sink in. Disgusting.”


The Simon Wiesenthal Center tweeted, “Fanatic Jew-hating Ayatollah and company inspired by Nazi antecedents. Await protests from #Berlin and #Vienna.”

The poster was released to commemorate Quds Day, which the Iranian government holds every year on the last Friday of Ramadan to show solidarity with the Palestinians. Quds Day will be on May 22. A May 18 virtual Quds Day event in Canada featured a video calling Zionism a “Satanic endeavor.”

On May 18, Khamenei tweeted, “The West Bank must be armed, just as Gaza. The only thing that can reduce the Palestinians’ hardships is the hand of power. Otherwise, compromise won’t reduce a bit of the cruelty of this usurping, evil, wolf-like entity.”

The Simon Wiesenthal Center tweeted, “Khamenei can’t sleep – plotting to destroy #Israel. Iranian people can’t sleep, terrified by COVID-19 and suffering economic deprivation, even as terrorist lackeys get millions from Terrorism Central in #Tehran.”

In 2015, Khamenei reportedly released a book in Iran outlining how he planned to destroy Israel, which would involve using Iranian terror proxies such as Hamas and Hezbollah to bombard Israel with terror attacks, causing Jews to leave Israel. Khamenei then plans for Palestinians worldwide to vote on a referendum turning Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip into one nation of Palestine. Only Jews in Israel would be allowed to vote on this referendum in Khamenei’s reported plan.
