Anti-Defamation League President Jonathan Greenblatt is asking Twitter to permanently remove Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei from the social media platform.

Greenblatt officially made his request in a Friday letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. The letter was posted on Greenblatt's Twitter account.

Twitter had said on Friday that it had banned an account connected to Khamenei, shortly after the account posted a photo showing former President Donald Trump playing golf in the shadow of a giant drone.

A Twitter official noted the tweet had violated the company's "abusive behavior policy," and that the account had violated its "manipulation and spam policy, specifically the creation of fake accounts," without elaborating.

Meanwhile, other accounts linked to Khamenei's office remain active.

In his letter, Greenblatt thanked Dorsey for removing Trump from its platform and said Khamenei has to go, as well.

He said the Iranian leader promotes violence on various Twitter accounts.

"This has included tweets that remain up today demonizing Zionists as 'enemies of humanity,' and calling the State of Israel 'a malignant cancerous tumor … that has to be removed or eradicated,'" Greenblatt said.

He also pointed out that Khamenei has denied the Holocaust on Twitter.

"But given that you have already suspended an American president from your platform earlier this month, and just removed one of Khamenei's many Twitter accounts for its blatant and threatening violations of Twitter's policies, that standard must urgently be applied to Khamenei's panoply of other Twitter accounts, which so clearly pose a danger to physical safety and routinely violate Twitter's terms of service," Greenblatt wrote.
