“Shame on you dirty Iranians willing to eat the birthday cake of the queen of lies.” Of course, they only do this sort of thing because they believe they can get away with it.
“Iranian guests attacked at British embassy party,” by Robert Tait in The Guardian (thanks to Mackie):
The British embassy in Tehran is expected to lodge a diplomatic protest after Iranian guests were attacked by demonstrators and detained by police after a reception to celebrate the Queen’s birthday.
Geoffrey Adams, Britain’s ambassador to Iran, was understood to be consulting the Foreign Office today over a formal response to a violent protest apparently designed to deter Iranians from attending yesterday’s reception, an annual event in the British diplomatic calendar.
Dozens of guests turned back after being confronted by angry demonstrators chanting insults, including “shame on you dirty Iranians willing to eat the birthday cake of the queen of lies”.
Water cans, tomatoes and paint balls were lobbed into the embassy compound during protests, which began an hour before the reception and continued throughout its duration.
Riot police attempted to beat back the protesters and arrested several.
However, the clashes merely pushed the demonstration to a nearby side street, where many guests were confronted while making their way to the reception.
“I was verbally abused as I parked my car. It was really frightening,” one Iranian guest said.
Disturbances continued as guests left, with several reportedly being detained by police for questioning.
