Jihad Watch : The Iranian people are fed up with the mullahs using their resources to
aid jihad terrorists in other lands. They are fed up with the Islamic
Republic. We can only hope that they will soon be able to rid themselves
“Iran: Protesters Chant ‘Death to Palestine’ in Tehran’s Grand Bazaar,” by Adelle Nazarian, Breitbart, June 25, 2018 : Thousands of Iranians reportedly took to Tehran’s
historic Grand Bazaar on Monday, forcing its shutdown in protest over
the Islamic Republic’s decision to spend money on Iran’s adventurism
abroad instead of helping fuel its troubled economy at home, where over 40 percent of its population is unemployed.
According to the Associated Press, the
demonstrations, which appear to be an extension of nationwide protests
that began on December 28 and have continued for months – came after protests forced two major shopping centers for mobile phones and electronics to close in Tehran on Sunday. Video of Iranians chanting “We don’t want the mullahs” outside the Grand Bazaar spread over social media:
In what appears to be a stunning turn away from Iran’s generally
anti-Semitic stance, which is replete with chants of “Death to Israel”
and “Death to America” – both long considered the “little Satan” and
“great Satan” by the regime – Iranian protesters were chanting “Death to Palestine!”
Everyday Iranians have revolted against the regime’s decision to
finance wars and its revolutionary endeavors in places like Syria, Iraq,
Libya, and Lebanon, and its support for the Palestinian people instead
of its own struggling population.
This month, Iranians began posting
videos of themselves discarding and destroying regime-run charity
donation boxes that they believed were going to Gaza to pay for lavish
meals while their own people struggle to offer donations to Gaza….
According to the BBC, at one point, Iran’s anti-riot police fired tear gas into the crowd of protesters as they marched towards parliament or Majles.
Despite this, the Associated Press reported that the head of Iran’s
Chamber of Guilds, Ali Fazeli, later was quoted by Iran’s state-run
Tasnim News agency as saying the situation at the bazaar was “calm.”
