In a speech broadcast on Iranian Channel 1 on Nov. 19, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei claimed that the West and the “arrogant” U.S. find it “intolerable and unbearable” because Iran is progressing and prospering.

He claimed that all pressure on Iran comes due to its progress and refusal to submit to the West’s “bullying,” and he chastised all American presidents since Jimmy Carter for opposing Iran, according to a video translated by MEMRI.

Khamenei also called President Joe Biden a “demented guy” and ordered the audience to “turn” all of their chants against America. “Death to America!” yelled the audience.

“All the American presidents, in the decades that have passed since the revolution, have fought the Islamic Republic on that front. It does not matter where they are now,” said Khamenei.

He continued, “Some of them have dropped dead, and some have been cast in the garbage bin of history, even if still alive: starting with the Democrats Carter, Clinton, and Obama, and ending with the Republicans Reagan and Bush. This includes the previous dope [Donald Trump] and this poor demented incumbent guy who wants to save Iran and the Iranians.”

Who will tell the truth about Israel in 2023?

Few things are certainties in a fast-changing world.

But there’s little doubt that the rising tide of antisemitism and demonization of Israel will continue to worsen in the upcoming year.

A publication that you can trust to supply you with accurate information as well as the sort of analysis and opinion that puts it all in perspective is absolutely vital.

JNS is an oasis of truth.
