Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei slammed the US and Israel in a speech to Muslim leaders on Sunday at an international conference in Tehran. He accused the 'world’s arrogant powers' – which he said are led by 'the Great Satan' – of wilting in the face of a rising Islamic awakening in the Middle East. 'The Zionist regime is much weaker than before,' he claimed, pointing to what he said were Israeli defeats at the hands of Hezbollah in Lebanon in 2006 and Palestinians in Gaza in 2009.
