In a reference to the Republican Party debate, Iran’s supreme leader lamented that “presidential candidates try to satisfy Zionists.”
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei referred to Wednesday night’s CNN-sponsored debate in a tweet on Thursday, part of a series of anti-Israel tweets.
“US govs put their people under Zionists custody. Isn’t it a shame that presidential candidates try to satisfy Zionists&prove their servitude?” he tweeted.
In a follow-up tweet, Khamenei reiterated a claim he made earlier this month that Israel will not last.

“Zionist regime is an imposed regime, made through coercion; no entity made by coercion would last. This regime will not survive either,” he wrote.
On Wednesday night, conservative political pundit Ann Coulter similarly slammed the Republican candidates for pandering to “f—ing Jews.”
Khamenei also called for the West Bank to be “armed to be ready for defense.”
