“The world will see the anger of the Islamic world against this regime.” Oh, we’ve seen it before. And I wonder: how many of those who are planning to turn out would prefer to be at an anti-mullahocracy demonstration if such wouldn’t put them in line for torture and death? From AP, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) “” Iranians will hold massive demonstrations Friday to back their president in the face of international criticism of his remarks that Israel should be destroyed, Iran’s foreign minister said.
Manouchehr Mottaki said Thursday the demonstrations will take place in Tehran and other parts of the country to mark al-Quds Day “” the annual event when Iranians protest Israel’s control over Jerusalem.
“The world will see the anger of the Islamic world against this regime,” state-run television quoted him as telling ambassadors from Islamic countries. He added that the “Zionist regime is illegitimate.”
On Wednesday, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told students that Israel should be destroyed. In a speech, Ahmadinejad also said a new wave of Palestinian attacks against Israel “will wipe this stigma from the face of the Islamic world.”
He then cited the founder of the Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, and said: “Israel must be wiped off the map.”…
In 1979, Khomeini declared the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan as an international day of struggle against Israel and for the liberation of Jerusalem.
