Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is hospitalized in serious condition. May be suffering from prostrate cancer.
The Jerusalem Post reported:
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is currently hospitalized in serious condition at a hospital in Tehran, according to unofficial reports.
Khamenei is suffering from prostate cancer that has reportedly spread to the rest of his body.
Earlier this week, the French newspaper Le Figaro quoted Western intelligence officials as saying that the cancer was discovered about ten years ago. “The cancer is in stage four, in other words has spread.” Doctors estimate “he has two years left to live.”
On September 8, Khamenei underwent surgery and it was then that doctors discovered the fatal situation.
In Iran, however, his condition is not public, and only those close to him know how bad the situation is. One such person is one of his six children, his 45-year-old son Mugtaba Khamenei, who has major political clout in the country.
Khamenei went off on a Jew-hating tirade this week prior to Netanyahu’s speech to Congress.
