Iran’s supreme leader echoed the usual anti-Semitic lingo coming out of the Islamic Republic, saying Israel would “disappear from the geographical landscape” and be replaced by a Palestinian state, the Mehr news agency reported.

“With God’s help, this year as well the Iranian nation will punch the faces of the enemies of Islam on Quds Day,” Khamenei said.
