Thousands of Iranians took to the streets of Tehran to shout “Death to Israel” and chant “Death to America.”
And what’s curious about these protests, is that they come post-Barack Obama era, when America took the lead to forge a nuclear treaty with the country — and when White House officials assured a concerned Republican Congress and a worried Israel that Tehran had turned a corner and would be pretty much a “bestie” to the world.
So how come the nation was in the streets burning effigies of President Donald Trump, and setting on fire flags of the United States and Israel?
Right. Could be because Obama’s past talk about a peace-loving Iran was all bunk.
From the Daily Mail:
“Hundreds of thousands of Iranians chanted ‘Death to Israel’ and ‘Death to America’ in nationwide rallies on Friday.
“Protesters also burned the flag of militant group ISIS which claimed responsibility for attacks in Tehran this month.
“Iranian state media said hundreds of thousands of people turned out for the rallies to mark Al-Quds Day, which was initiated by Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution founder Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and is held on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.
“Marchers included soldiers, students and clerics. Black-clad women with small children were among those flocking the streets of central Tehran, many carrying portraits of Khomeini and his successor Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
“In Tehran’s Vali-ye Asr street, three mid-range surface-to-surface ballistic missiles were displayed, including the Zolfaghar missile that Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards used on Sunday to target bases of the IS in eastern Syria.
“Top Guards’ commanders have repeatedly said that Israel is within range of Iran’s missiles. Sunni Muslim states in the Gulf and Israel say Tehran’s ballistic missile program is a threat to regional security and has led to the United States imposing new sanctions.”
