BERLIN – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran Ali Khamenei published an antisemitic poster on Tuesday evoking Nazi Germany’s “final solution” that destroyed European Jewry, in order to advance Tehran’s quest to abolish Israel.
The poster’s language reads: “Palestine will be free. The final solution. Resistance is referendum.”
Khamenei displayed the antisemitic poster in English, Farsi and Arabic on his official homepage.
The picture shows a conquered Jerusalem with photos of the late Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp Quds Force leader Qassem Soleimani.
The US and the EU classified Soleimani as a leading international terrorist. A US drone strike killed the Quds Force leader in January. He was responsible for the murder of over 600 US military personnel as well as Israelis.
The poster was released from Khamenei’s office to celebrate Quds Day, the annual Iranian regime rally calling for Israel’s destruction.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, toldThe Jerusalem Post: “Fanatic Jew-hating Ayatollah and company inspired by Nazi antecedents. Awaiting protests from Berlin and Vienna.”
The Post contacted German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s administration, including her federal commissioner to combat antisemitism, Felix Klein, for a comment.
Iran’s regime is considered the top state sponsor of antisemitism and Holocaust denial by ADL national director Jonathan Greenblatt.
