Quds Day Procession in Tehran

Iran marked the annual Quds (Jerusalem) Day today, the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan. Marchers chanted “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” slogans and burnt the U.S. and Israeli flags. This year they also had a new slogan: “Death to Al-Saud.”

The Quds Day procession began 36 years ago by the founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, and was dedicated to the “liberation” of Jerusalem. It has evolved into an annual rite of hatred against the U.S., Israel and other perceived enemies.

Burn flags, attend the obligatory demo, have a few free Sundise, go home. As long as it is state sponsored you are good. Deviate from official line and you end up in prison: Islamic democracy, got to love it.

Yes,islamic regime is addicted to burning flags and shouting "marg bar amrika!" Without those two perpetual causes islamic regime will cease to exist. Therefore those poor people are forced to attend the annual zombie parade.By the way,how much does a Sundise juice and kalvas sandwich cost these days?
