Iran Slams U.S. During Anti-Israel Day Of Protest

Iran’s annual protest against Israel also included threats against the U.S.

AFP reports:

Thousands took to the streets in the capital and other cities for Qods (Jerusalem) Day, held every year since the early days of Iran’s Islamic revolution to show support for the Palestinians.

This year’s event saw the usual burning of flags and chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”, as well as a huge Donald Trump figure being hanged from a crane.

This is not the first time Iran is showing anger over the U.S. recently.

Iran is angry over President Trump’s decision to pull out of the nuclear agreement the country reached with former President Obama and other countries.

Last month, members of the Iranian parliament burned the U.S. flag and shouted, “death to America.”

Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader, used Twitter to promote the protest day against Israel:

 

 

The angry outbursts is a reminder of the danger Iran represents to the world and justifies President Trump’s decision to cancel the nuclear agreement.
