Khamenei: Israel a ‘Second-Tier’ Enemy

Khamenei says, “We have different enemies but we do not consider all of them to be the first tier of enemies of the country, including the Zionist regime itself, which, however, is not currently in the shape or size to be viewed as a top enemy of the nation of Iran.”

He adds, “Sometimes the Zionist leaders also threaten us – they threaten us with military invasion – but in my opinion they know, or if they do not know they should know, that if they do any wrong to us then the Islamic Republic of Iran will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground.”
