Jihad Watch reader David has kindly sent me the above photos and this report:
On Tuesday evening, a group of “Persian Royalists” “occupied” the Arc de Triomphe in the center of Paris to protest the Iranian nuclear program, and the emerging alliance between Russia, China, and Iran. They flew the flag called the “draphshe,” which is the royal crescent of ancient Persia.
The group undertaking the action is called “Derafsh e Kaviani”. It is an anti-Islamic Iranian goup which is calling for the overthrow of the Islamic regime in Teheran, and its replacement by a royal regime. The protesters remained on the Arc de Triomphe until Wednesday morning.
Since 1995, this group has protested against the Iranian nuclear program, as well as the support for this program provided by Russia and China.
