Tens of thousands of people took to the streets on Friday to mark the historic anniversary of the storming of the US embassy in Tehran.

Thousands of Iranians held a massive rally on the anniversary of the US embassy takeover in 1979.
Fars News reported:

Iranians in different cities across the country took part in massive rallies chanting “Death to America” to mark the anniversary of the US embassy takeover in 1979.

Thousands of Iranians from all walks of life, comprising students, university students, and business persons, commemorated the National Day of Campaign against Global Arrogance and the National Student Day on Friday.

Participants in the annual rally in front of the former US embassy in Tehran known by the Iranians as “the den of spies” vowed to follow the path of the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, and renewed allegiance to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.

The demonstrators also condemned the US-led western sanctions against Iran, and stressed that the United States is the main enemy of the Iranian nation.

Since the 1979 takeover of the US embassy in Tehran, Iranians have been celebrating the occasion every year by holding rallies on the anniversary and marking it as the National Day against the ‘Global Arrogance’.

  1. Must be time to remove the security for embassy employees!

  2. “The demonstrators also condemned the US-led western sanctions against Iran, and stressed that the United States is the main enemy of the Iranian nation”

    Good…why would we want Iranians to feel any other way about us…

  3. Why are they still wearing their Halloween costumes?

  4. “Death to America.” Whoa. That’ll scare us, just like it has since 1979. Not.

    Just say when and where, Iran. When and where.

    Dogs. Every one of them. Dogs.

  5. The US Embassy bit is a little misleading #2. We do not have an embassy in Iran. The US Embassy Jim is referring to is the US Embassy building that was taken over during the Carter administration. It is my understanding that it is now headquarters for the Iranian version of Hitler’s SS.

    hmmm, what’s going on..

    an American presidential election?? /s/


  7. You should update to “site of former embassy”, Jim. We don’t have an embassy there anymore.

    “More Minty”, the “overthrow” consisted of convincing the Shah to dismiss a PM (which was in his constitutional powers).

    Mossadegh wasn’t “democratically elected, either, he was appointed by the Majlis.

    Did I mention this was AFTER they siezed $1B in British material and assets?

    Iranian fauxrage justified? Hardly, you unrepentant douchecanoe.

  8. I see they let the girls out for this one! F U

  9. Hey that is a bigger crowd than Obama draws these days!

  10. “and a caricature of President Barack Obama”

    Here are a few polite words for our president: the Iranian government sees you as an American. They hate Americans. You haven’t changed their minds. Wake up.

  11. You neglect to mention how the US overthrew their democratically elected government to install the Shah then sold WMD to Iraq during the war with Iran. Their resentment is justified.

    Yeah, and their lives were so much better under the Ayatollah. He sent children armed with korans telling them that allah would protect them against Iraqi bullets. It always was and always will be a sh!thole as long as the islamist run the country.
    Oh yeah, what about their sponsorship of Hezbollah in Lebanon. Those d@mn Lebanese installed what dictator, and supplied what WMDs to Iraq.
    They chant “death to Israel” after Friday mosque, because…
    I’m sure you know that Saudi Arabia has been instrumental in covertly fighting against Iran, right?
    Were you for the Green Revolution? Let’s hear! Add some real substance to the post.

    Obama camp accused of illegal war-chest stuffing

    FEC complaint calls for audit to reveal foreign contributions


  13. …Second century nomads…wearing converse shoes(?), jeans, holding a leather bag of some sort, and a camera phone…hhmmm…

  14. If these people were so bright you would think they would at lest color the flag properly

  15. So you say muzzies hate America and want us all dead?


    The only people surprised or affected by this BS is Mr The-Muslim-World-Loves-Me Obama and his clueless, progressive cult. The rest of us live in reality and can actually name and identify our enemy, those who continue to declare war on us.
