Khamenei: Iran Gave U.S. ‘Slap on Face’, Calls Missile Strikes ‘Day of God’

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a Friday sermon that Iran’s missile strikes on U.S. targets in Iraq this month delivered a “slap on the face” to the United States, showing the Islamic Republic had divine support.

During a spike in tension, Iran launched missiles at U.S. targets on Jan. 8 in response to a U.S. drone strike on Jan. 3 that killed Qassem Soleimeni, a powerful Iranian general who was close to Khamenei.

“The fact that Iran has the power to give such a slap to a world power shows the hand of God,” Khamenei said, after referring to the launch of missiles against U.S. targets as a “day of God”. His comments were met by chants of “Death to America!”.

  1. Khamenei did not say ‘Day of God’, but the hand of, or Day of Allah”. Saying Allah is equal to the God of the Jews, Gentiles or any other god is judged as blasphemy and an insult to Muslims (-Sura 3:64} punishable by death in many Muslim countries. That is why when Muslim terrorist attack, they do not say God is great, the say Allāhu akbar, “Allah is [the] greatest” or greater. Stop insulting them. They say what they mean. But the PC and liberals have been translating most all references from Allah to God to try to soften it to make it acceptable to America and deceive you. A lie repeated a million times is still a lie. Would a God of Love want us to kill all non-believers? Allah demands that they kill non-believers who will not convert and teaches them to hate and kill all Jews even if they are hiding and to extract retribution. To deceive or trick someone is highly prized, and Allah is thought to be the best at this. To them, he is the Greatest Deceiver. So, God of Love and forgiveness and second chances and god of Hate, deception, and retribution. If two things have any differences they are not the same. Stop falling for equating them. If you are in a just war, and or defending others’ lives, maybe a Christian might kill an attacking enemy. It is for a Christian to turn the other cheek but not to sacrifice our children or friend’s especially if they are defending our country or acting as emissaries of peace at our embassy. Remember, an embassy is a place a country provides to guarantee protection for ambassadors of peace for other countries. An ambassador is the one carrying the white flag of peace. To allow an attack on an embassy is to allow the declaration of war. Soleimani was a military general from another country and others we killed there were military leaders of Iraq and they were leading an attack on an embassy. We are called to stop them even if it was an embassy of another country, they were attacking.

    1. I am impressed by someone who has apparently read the Qur’an by citing suras and ayats and has revealed the Islam religion for what it is – a cult of hate. Have no idea nor do I care who “down” voted on your comment. They obviously did not understand the facts and information; or didn’t read it. Good post!

  2. baal paul and confuction every post you put on this site cements your obvious stupidity, arrogance and ignorance of your selves and your communist party. You know nothing and have no facts but since when does that stop your party from skewering the truth and putting everything in your context or in other words YOU LIE!!!!!! President Trump has said no such thing and has no such belief. That is your party you are talking about.

  3. That “slap” caught nothing but air, except for that airliner you shot down. Moron.

    Try to keep up Cockamamie. “Your God” commanded you to murder innocents (as usual)? Your God caused your dozens of missiles to do….doodlysquat? Not one infidel/Great Satan casualty except those innocent people.

    Are you sure it’s Allah whispering in your ear and not Shaitan?

  4. You are an old man so shut up although actually you can join the 2 old men of the 2020 Democrats. If the US wanted to, Iran would not exist – NOW that is the hand of GOD.

  5. This mullah is just plain nuts – “…showing the hand of god.” Our God had nothing to do with this quack cleric. Next time these ayotollahs bow down to prayer in mass launch a missile into their midst. That should eliminate their religious government.

  6. Man Islam is such a peaceful religion talking about killing and destruction like it’s a godly or benevolent act. I’ve never felt more distrust or uneasiness as I do about the Muslim community. They operate like it’s still the dark ages and absolutely refuse to modernize like literally every single other religion or group of people. They are one step above those tribes who eat people in the Amazon at least their savagery and primitive mindset has an excuse. These Iranian dogs won’t stop barking until we have them put down like the rabid animals they are. They deserve absolutely no mercy or respect or humane treatment they slaughter their own people for merely speaking out about being treated like garbage. Those in power and every single person who agreed with them needs removed from this life no exceptions.

  7. SO IRAN SLAPS USA WITH THE ” DAY OF GOD ” HAND! WELL YOU OLD FART BEARDED DEPEND WARING GOAT, you haven’t met “THE HAND OF GOD YET” but when you do you will be “BEGGING FOR MERCY FROM GOING TO HELL WHERE YOU BELONG!”

  8. No, siree. God is the One who gave you the slap. You wanted to kill AMERICAN Military. But instead God had saved all our brave men and women by having them find safe place while you were shooting off firecrackers.

    1. Right, Lona, because Iran gave our military a heads-up as to where their missiles were targeted.

  9. “The fact that Iran has the power to give such a slap to a world power shows the hand of God.”

    No, it doesn’t! Not even a little! Any rogue nation can get a rocket and shoot it off. Japan did more than that with the attack on Pearl Harbor. Was that also the hand of God? Not even close! It started the complete take-down of those in power in Japan at the time.

  10. And American and global media print his spin. Good job guys, good job.

  11. He did the “Slap on Face” after he changed his underwear, keep one eye to the sky “Religion of Peace” guru you may be next. ?

  12. So, we offer the other cheek for them to slap, as Jesus says. If they slap that side, then it’s ‘game on!’ We’re at war. If they don’t, it’s just an insult and we can live with that… whatever floats your boat, Ayatollah. But if you slap the other side, look out for the WRATH of God to fall on you.

    1. I know that’s a popular opinion – let them slap you once but, if they do it again, smash them. That’s obeying the letter and disobeying the spirit of God’s Word. It’s a way they get around God’s Word and do what they want while saying they’re obeying God.

      A slap is an insult – not the same as a strike with a sword, knife, club, or fist. If they insult you, allow them to insult you again – and again. But God, at times, told Israel to wipe out certain people who had done them harm and drive out the nations who were squatting on their land. And when enemies attacked Israel, God sometimes fought the battles for them.

      The key is: God told them. So we need to do what God tells us to do when He tells us to do it. And, right now, God has many people in Iran and throughout the Middle East. Muslims are coming to Christ in droves. And many of those who refuse to believe God realize their leaders are doing them in. God’s not going to tell us to wipe them all out.

  13. Not Day of God. Day of Allah. Would a God of Love want us to kill all non-believers? Allah demands that they kill non-believers and teaches them to hate all Jews and to extract retribution. To deceive or trick someone is highly prized, and Allah is thought to be the best at this. He is the Greatest Deceiver. So, God of Love and forgiveness and second chances and God of Hate and retribution are not the same. If you are in a just war, and or defending others lives, maybe a Christian might kill an attacking enemy. It is for a Christian to turn the other cheek but not those of our children’s or friend’s especially if they are defending our country or acting as emissaries of peace at our embassy.

    1. Especially both sides are called to defend those acting as emissaries of peace at our embassy. Remember, an embassy is a place a country provides to another country to guarantee protection for ambassadors of peace for other countries. An ambassador is the one carrying the white flag of peace. To allow or lead an attack on an embassy is to allow the declaration of war. Soleimani was a military general from another country and other there were military leaders of Iraq and they were leading an attack on an embassy Iraq provided for protection of Americans.

    2. I would take it that you have been taught the wrong interpretation of what Jesus said in the Word. When He said offer the other cheek, He was speaking in the context of a duel challenge. What would happen when someone was challenged to a duel? If one cheek was slapped, it was an insult, and so what? Nothing. But if you offered the other cheek, and it was slapped? It meant that the first slap was not an insult, and that they were challenging you to a fight… the resultant slap meant you could go to war to fight for your honor. Christians were NEVER meant to be pacifists, as we have been taught since the Roman Catholic Church was formed in 350 AD, who changed the interpretation of the Word from its original intent. When you go back to the original intent, which was Jewish, the ways and commandments of Father Most High, THEN you begin to see what was meant. The Roman Catholic Church, through Constantine, changed so much of the Jewish context, because Constantine issued the Creed of Constantinople, which cursed EVERYTHING Jewish, including the Messiah. Think on that a bit.

  14. “Slap in the face”? Trump just decided to NOT to vaporize these idiots.

  15. Keep babbling your Muslim BS, Khamenei. You may soon be having a discussion with Allah and wishing you had kept your missiles at home and your mouth shut.
