Iran protesters chant ‘Death to America’ trampling American flag, photos of President Obama

While President Obama’s call to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani may have appeared to ease the tensions between the two nations, recent protests raise questions for future negotiations.

Protests in Iran involve spitting on photos of President Obama

Protests in Iran involve spitting on photos of President Obama

Mashregh, the media outlet of the Revolutionary Guards, published a photo of the image of Obama alongside the U.S. flag laid on the ground and radicals walking over them. The picture shows one individual spitting on Obama’s image.

In September the website of the Quds cyber officers posted an image of Obama, wearing a Nazi field marshal’s uniform, surrendering with his hands on his head. The caption reads, “In the not too distant future…. One [Gen. Qasem] Soleimani is enough for all the enemies of this country.” (See photo below)

In an effort to emphasize the Islamic Republic’s view of the United States as the “Great Satan,” mass rallies will be held across Iran to shout “Death to America” and assail worldwide Zionism on the anniversary of the U.S. Embassy takeover of November 4, 1979, Brig. Gen. Seyyed Masoud Jazayeri, deputy chief of the Joint Armed Forces Headquarters stated.

Amir Muhammad, a 23-year-old student of management at Tehran Islamic Azad University, stated, “Our government and our principles should be based on Imam Rooh Allah Khamenei’s and Khamenei’s ideals. We should never surrender to the Great Satan. I am very upset because Rouhani talked to the US president on the phone. This violates our Islamic ideals and Imam [Ayatollah Khomeini’s] principles.”

Rouhani pointed out in several interviews, after returning to Tehran from the United Nations General Assembly in New York, that the White House had requested to talk with Rouhani several times before he finally agreed to talk to them on his way back to the airport.

By announcing that American diplomats requested to speak with Rouhani, the Iranian government and their allies like Russia have been spreading the narrative that the United States is in a weak position, begging the Iranian government to befriend them.

Critics claim that this is particularly damaging to the global power, prestige, and credibility of the United States in the international arena.

The protests and chants are different than those from one year prior – read more here

    Brandon Jones,

    Sir, THE NEWS WAS VAGUE ABOUT THIS ITALIAN’S ACTIVITIES DURING THE WAR. [I think this story is a ploy to introduce the issue of the holocaust to contemporary schoolchildren – especially, during this time in which “bullying” is getting “good press”].

    IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING “MAJOR” NAZIS WHO SURVIVED [LIKE, Adolf Eichmann] FLED TO PLACES LIKE, ARGENTINA. SO, THIS ITALIAN MALE WAS, OBVIOUSLY, “LOW ON THE TOTEM POLE.”

    DURING SLAVERY/”Jim Crow” THE CAUCASIAN MAJORITY DID NOT LIKE THE CAUCASIAN MINORITY, WHO HELPED/SAFEGUARDED NEGROES. I PLACE THIS ITALIAN-NAZI STORY IN THE SAME CATEGORY.

    I AM GLAD THE IRANIANS SPAT AND STOMPED ON THE KENYAN’S PHOTOGRAPH. BRAVO!

    AMERICAN-NEGRO MALES HAVE SOMETHING MIDDLE-EASTERN MALES DO NOT HAVE – FEAR!!!!! THE KENYAN HAS BEEN “CALLED-OUT” BY MIDDLE-EASTERN MALES – THE TRUE- AND PRACTICAL-PROTECTORS OF ISLAM – WHO KNOW THE KENYAN IS ISLAMIC AND RATHER PRACTICE DUPLICITY, INSTEAD OF, PEACEFULLY NEGOTIATING WITH HIS BRETHREN. AGAIN, I TYPE, WHY DID THE KENYAN VACATION IN AFRICA IF IT WAS NOT HIS GOAL TO GIVE HIS ISLAMIC BRETHREN A “HIGH FIVE?”

    MALES OF COLOR ABSOLUTELY CAN NOT STAND OTHER MALES OF COLOR WHOM THEY CONSIDER TRAITORS.

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

      IN REFERENCE TO THE PHOTOGRAPH PORTRAYING THE KENYAN AS A NAZI – IT IS SILLY; AS I HAVE TYPED BEFORE, NEGROES DO NOT CARE ABOUT NAZI ACTIVITIES. SO, SINCE NEGROES ARE THE KENYAN’S MOST LOYAL BASE, WHOM IS THIS PHOTOGRAPH SUPPOSED TO OFFEND?

      Brandon Jones, Sir, THIS WEEK THE NEWS REPORTED A NATIVE ITALIAN – WHO WAS A NAZI SYMPATHIZER – DIED AT AGE ONE-HUNDRED; BUT, HE COULD NOT BE BURIED IN HIS NATIVE ITALY. ARRANGEMENTS ARE BEING “NEGOTIATED” TO SEND HIS CORPSE TO GERMANY. Mr. Jones, SOMEONE LOVES THIS MAN; DO YOU, Mr. Jones, THINK IT IS FAIR TO “THROW THIS MAN AWAY – LIKE YESTERDAY’S GARBAGE” IN A FOREIGN LAND, JUST BECAUSE HE VALUED AN IDEAL IN HIS YOUTH WHICH MAY NOT BE MANIFEST DURING OLD AGE?

      • Brandon says:

        Nazism and the actions of those supporters during WWII were so heinous that this decision doesn’t surprise me. Where has he been for the last 50 years or so? More information is needed to even speak to your question – I have no idea what this man has done with his life since the war.

        Most crimes of Nazis don’t warrant a pardon in my opinion – why should we?

          MY REPLY TO YOU WAS LOST IN CYBERSPACE. I AM “COOL” WITH WHAT YOU TYPED. IT DID INDICATE “Comment awaiting moderation,” SO, YOU DID RECEIVE IT ON YOUR END.
