Israel will be destructed one day: Iran`s leader

Last Updated: Thursday, January 28, 2010 - 09:12

Tehran: Iran`s supreme leader is predicting the destruction of Israel in one of his harshest comments in years about the Jewish state.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says the timeline for Israel`s demise depends on how Muslim nations "approach the issue”. He did not elaborate.

The Iranian leader made the remarks on Wednesday during a meeting with the Mauritanian President in Tehran. He posted the comments on his office Web site on Thursday.

Khamenei has previously called Israel a "cancerous tumour" that must be removed from the map. But his new comments mark the first time in years Khamenei has publicly predicted Israel`s downfall.

The remarks also come as Jews mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day - the 65th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi-run Auschwitz death camp.
