(NewsGlobal.com)- On Friday, Iranians cheered and celebrated in the streets for the 43rd anniversary of the Islamic Revolution. The celebrations saw people out in the roads and the streets chanting “death to Israel” and various other threats directed towards the United States and the United Kingdom.
Hundreds of thousands – potentially even millions – of people took to the streets on February 11, the official anniversary of the Iranian Islamic Revolution. Photographs of the celebrations, which you can see here, showed Iranians burning American flags and holding signs that said “DOWN WITH U.S.”
The Islamic Revolution in Iran saw extreme Islamist forces, who believe in governing their country by the word of the Qur’an, seize control of the country after a national referendum deposed their leader and ended moderate governance in the country. The nation was no longer a monarchy that gave its citizens a good quality of life and relative freedom, but an extreme Islamist country run by Islamic law (Sharia). It saw a dramatic drop in the standard of living for its people, a loss of civil liberties, and a rise in the abuse, censorship, and oppression of women.
Protesters also held signs that commemorated the death of terrorist leader, General Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a strike ordered by former President Donald Trump at Baghdad Airport in Afghanistan. Soleimani was one of the most dangerous terrorist leaders in the world and was responsible for several terror attacks that killed American soldiers.
The celebrations come as the United States comes close to either giving up on negotiations with the Iranian government over the Iran Nuclear Deal (and Biden’s desire for the country to come back into compliance with it) or simply kowtowing to Iran’s demands. Iranian negotiators insist that the United States must drop all Trump-era economic sanctions before the country complies with the Obama-era deal.
