Now that's a stretch

Far be it from me to criticize other countries, or their leaders, especially in a place where I know very little, but this one isn't getting through my five-hole.
Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is making statements covered in the Washington Post threatening consequences to U.S. interests around the world, if the U.S. attacks Iran:
"The Iranian nation and its officials are peace-seekers and the Islamic republic would not invade anybody," the television quoted Khamenei as saying.
I'm sorry.  Did he just say, "the Iranian nation and its officials are peace-seekers"?
The same man whose country funds Hezbollah?  The country whose President said, " As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map."? 
Yeah.  Peaceful.  Mmm hmm.
