According reports appearing in social media in the Gulf region Saturday evening, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khameini has died. He was known to be gravely ill with cancer. Tehran has not so far posted word of his death.

The fallout from President Obama’s ill-conceived agreement with Iran has begun.
Over the weekend, the Ayatollah Khamenei sent a tweet showing Obama in silhouette with a gun to his head. The text was a blatant threat to the United States that it will be defeated if it engages Iran in combat. It’s clear the Iranian regime feels it has the high ground – especially while Obama was in Kenya being rebuffed for trying to lecture the Kenyan president about gay rights.
Are we sure about that poll which stated America is highly respected across the globe? Who did they ask, Lichtenstein and Monaco?
And in what Obama and his administration felt was to their advantage, they pushed a vote in the United Nations (UN) Security Council and the European Union to validate and endorse “his” deal. So now, the actions of our U.S. Congress, following the required 60-day review period, almost seem a fait accompli.
Report: Iranian Supreme Leader Is Dead–
The Ayatollah was hospitalized earlier this week.
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.
