In a 416-page manifesto called Palestine, Iran\'s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei details his view on the destruction of Israel and the deception of the US. The book, which credits Khamenei as \"The flag bearer of Jihad to liberate Jerusalem,\" is only available in Iran, the NY Post revealed.

According to the Post, Khamenei quickly asserts his belief that Israel does not have a right to exist as a state. He does this by using three words: nabudi meaning annihilation, imha meaning fading out and zaval meaning effacement. The book allegedly states Khamenei\'s strategy for the destruction of Israel is through \"well-established Islamic principles\".

One of those principles is that a land under Muslim rule, no matter how brief, can never be returned to non-Muslim rulers. The Post reported that Khamenei lists Israel as a special case because it is an \"ally of the American Great Satan,\" it has waged war against Muslims and because it occupies Jerusalem, which he calls \"Islam\'s third Holy City.\"

In his new book, the Iranian religious leader calls for long periods of low-intensity warfare that makes like unpleasant or impossible for a majority of Israeli Jews so they leave Israel. He does not, however, call for the complete destruction of the country or the massacre of Jewish people.

Despite this, Khamenei\'s plan includes a group of \"fighters\" in the West Bank that would develop Hezbollah-style units.

\"We have intervened in anti-Israel matters, and it brought up victory in the 33-day war by Hezbollah against Israel in 2006 and in the 22-day war between Hamas and Israel in the Gaza Strip,\" he allegedly wrote.

The Post reported that Khamenei then believes that as the cost of staying in Israel rises, the cost of supporting the Jewish state, particularly for the US, will also rise. Khamenei believes there should be a one-state formula that would be called Palestine under Muslim rule. However, non-Muslims would be allowed to stay if they prove \"genuine roots\" in the region, thus becoming \"protected minorities.\"

His plan would put Israel, the West Bank and Gaza under a United Nations mandate before creating the new state of Palestine.
