Interestingly, this report is from the Fars News Agency in Iran, where Facebook is officially blocked. Otherwise, heaven knows young Iranians might start some kind of unholy water fight.
But the Iranian government never met an attempted U.S. embassy takeover it didn’t like, and that apparently trumps the use of a method of organization that is proscribed in Iran. “Egypt’s Youths Vow to Raid US Embassy if Palestine Bid at UN Vetoed,” from Fars News Agency, September 24:
TEHRAN (FNA)- A group of Egyptian youths in a call via an internet social network called for demonstrations in front of the US Embassy in Cairo to take over the US compound if Washington vetoes the Palestinian bid for UN membership.
According to a report by Palestine al-Yawm (Palestine Today) news network, the young Egyptians have posted a request on their Facebook webpage and blasted Barack Obama’s speech after his presidency in Cairo in which the US President pledged a new approach towards Muslims.
They said that the threat by the Obama administration to veto the Palestinian bid for UN membership revealed the realities about Obama and the fact they “he is a liar and is no different with his predecessors in supporting Israel and blatant violation of the Arab nations’ rights”.
The Egyptian youths said the attack on the US embassy would serve as a strong message in response to the US hegemonic policies.
They further warned the US to refrain from vetoing the Palestinian bid, saying that such a move by the US would encourage violence in the world.
Acting Palestinian Authority Chief Mahmud Abbas has brought a Palestinian request for UN membership to New York, where top officials of all the member states of the world body have convened to attend an annual General Assembly sessions.
The future Palestinian state would include the West Bank and Gaza, with East al-Quds (Jerusalem) as its capital. The PA says it believes that more than 130 countries would recognize the state of Palestine based on the pre-1967 borders.
Israel and the US strongly oppose the Palestinian move. Washington, which supports Tel Aviv’s position, claims that a Palestinian state can only be achieved through talks with Israel.
Just in case you forgot you were reading a report out of Iran:
Palestinians stress that they have never gained anything through talks with the Zionist regime, mentioning that negotiation with the racist regime is a waste of time and gives the Zionists the chance to push their settlement construction plans ahead and come along with their international and internal problems.
