17 July 2006: Yesterday, Iran’s “Supreme Leader” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei described Israel as “satanic and cancerous” and praised the Lebanese group Hezbollah for its “jihad” against the Jewish state. Stated Khamenei, “This regime is an infectious tumor for the entire Islamic world.” in a speech that was aired on state television.

He rejected the demand by President George Bush that Hezbollah disarm, vowing, “This will never happen.” He also described the Bush administration as the “most hideous” U.S. government in recent years.

It is an Iranian war”, Jumblat told the Arabic satellite station al-Arabiya as Israeli armed forces continued to attack targets in southern Lebanon.
