Nothing new here. They do this every year. But just imagine the outcry if Americans or Israelis were turning out in large numbers to chant "death to Iran." Today's fashionable multicultural relativism masks an actual racism that holds Muslims to lower standards than it does everyone else. I say let's hold everyone to the same standard, and condemn this genocidal bloodlust for what it is.
"Iranians on revolution day chant ‘death to America,’" from Al Arabiya, February 10 (thanks to all who sent this in):
Hundreds of thousands of people marched on Sunday in Tehran and other cities chanting “Death to America” as Iran marked the 34th anniversary of the Islamic revolution that ousted the U.S.-backed shah.
In the capital, crowds waving Iranian flags and portraits of revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini walked toward the landmark Azadi (Freedom) Square, in a government-sponsored rally which is now a cornerstone of the regime.
Marchers also chanted “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” as they headed for the square, some waving posters of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, where President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was expected to make an address.
Iran is holding similar rallies nationwide, especially in large provincial capitals such as Mashhad, Isfahan, Shiraz and Kerman....
