Twitter executives and employees remained silent Thursday after Iran’s Ayatollah labeled the United States the “embodiment of Satan” and Israel its “chained dog” just hours after suspending Donald Trump Jr. for posting a video about the Coronavirus.
“Today more than ever, the interest of the Islamic Nation lies in #unity, the type of unity that creates power against enemies and shouts out loudly at the embodied #Satan, the encroaching US, and its chained dog, the #Zionist regime, and stands up against aggression,” posted Iran’s Supreme Leader.

TEHRAN’S TIRADE: Iran’s Ayatollah Says Israel a ‘Cancerous Tumor’ that Must be ‘Uprooted and Destroyed’
Iran abruptly escalated regional tensions with Israel Friday; saying the “Zionist regime” is a “cancerous tumor” on the Middle East that must be “uprooted and destroyed.”
Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei delivered a nationally televised, 30 minute address to the Iranian people in a rare speech.

After the 1979 Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini ordered the first Quds Day be held on the last Friday of the holy Muslim fasting month of Ramadan to criticize Israel.
