Khamenei welcomes US student protesters into ‘Resistance Front’ terror alliance

Iran’s supreme leader is offering praise to students roiling US university campuses with anti-Israel protests, while also trafficking in some old-fashioned antisemitism.

In an open letter to US university students, Ali Khamenei says the students have “now formed a branch of the Resistance Front,” referring to a loose alliance of Iran-backed terror groups and militias around the Middle East seeking to destroy Israel and kill American troops, including Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Yemen’s Houthis, Iraq’s Islamic Resistance and of course the Hamas terror group.

“The greater Resistance Front which shares the same understandings and feelings that you have today, has been engaged in the same struggle for many years in a place far from you,” he says.

Along the way, he also notes that “The global Zionist elite … owns most US and European media corporations or influences them through funding and bribery,” hitching a ride on the age-old antisemitic trope that Jews control the media.
