In 2012, Iranian leader Ayatollah Khamenei said,  “The great powers have dominated the destiny of the Islamic countries for years and… installed the Zionist cancerous tumor in the heart of the Islamic world...Many of the problems facing the Muslim world are due to the existence of the Zionist regime.” 

This was two days after Iran's president Ahmadinejad said that Israel was an “insult to humanity” and “a cancerous tumor” and called for “a new Middle East with no trace of Americans or Zionists.” 

At the time, the US condemned those insults, and the UN Secretary General issued a statement: "The Secretary-General is dismayed by the remarks threatening Israel’s existence attributed over the last two days to the Supreme Leader and the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran.  The Secretary-General condemns these offensive and inflammatory statements."

Today, Khamenei parroted what he said in 2012. According to Al Manar, he "described the Zionist entity as a cancerous tumor and said the axis of resistance and the Palestinian resistance will eradicate it." 

I am wondering if Khamanei is testing the UN and the international community. He is not stupid; he knows that throwing insults like this doesn't intimidate Israel. But it could be that he is checking to see if the world is by now so inured to his threats that he can up the ante without fear of blowback.

After all, a key goal of the anti-Israel world is to make Israel into a pariah, to dehumanize the Jewish state and to eventually make any attacks on Israel appear to be moral. By pressing these buttons, it is possible that Khamenei is looking for the UN and EU to remain silent, which would be a green light for him to try something further.
