Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s “Supreme Leader,” congratulated American students on Wednesday for their anti-Israel, pro-Hamas protests, saying that they had joined the “Resistance Front,” which includes terrorist groups.

Khamenei was speaking after a wave of anti-Israel protests swept elite American campuses this spring.

In what he called a “letter to the young people,” posted on Twitter/X, Khamenei blasted “Zionists” and spun antisemitic conspiracy theories:

Khamenei also recommended that students read the Quran (or Koran), the central text of Islam:

Khamenei’s regime is known for its brutal repression of student uprisings in Iran.

The Iran International website recently noted: “The ‘Resistance Front’ refers to the alliance of armed militant groups sponsored by Iran, including Hezbollah, Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Houthis in Yemen, and Iraqi Shiite militias.
