Supreme Leader Called Israel A “Rabid Dog” — Does It Matter?


On Tuesday, the Supreme Leader, in a speech to 50,000 members of the Basij militia, said Israel was the rabid dog of the region — and his office followed it up on Thursday with a poster via Twitter.

So do we have an international crisis here, a complete break-down of negotiations — possibly leading to a deal — with the Islamic Republic?

No. Not yet.

“If the talks with Iran break down in Geneva, then the rhetoric comes back to center stage.”

  1. It does matter. Can they really not see how it makes it more difficult for western powers to negotiate with a regime while their leader is calling Israel a “rabid dog”? It’s already difficult enough because they refuse to accept the very existence of a state recognized by the UN. Are they so desperate for support that their leader has to resort to constant namecalling?
