The Iranian Embassy announced Thursday that it is sponsoring a children’s drawing and writing contest on the theme, “Israel must be erased from the Earth.”

The quote, attributed to the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iran’s supreme leader, was carried in a large front-page advertisement placed by the Iranian Embassy in the national Pakistani newspaper, The Muslim.

Pakistani children between the ages of 7 and 15 were invited to draw or write an essay or poem on Palestine as the “victim of the Zionist war.”
