As American negotiators huddle in Vienna with their Iranian counterparts in a last-minute push towards a nuclear deal, an annual ritual is playing out on the streets of Tehran: The burning of American flags.

Friday marked Quds Day, the annual occasion on which Iranians rally to express public support for the Palestinians and fierce condemnation of Israel (smaller events are held elsewhere in the world). The Iranians made their feelings vividly known, with Israeli flags fluttering next to American ones put to flame.





Saudi Arabia, the Sunni power locked in a shadow war with Shiite Iran for influence across the Middle East, was another target of enmity:



As an expression of Iranian revolutionary ideology, cries of “death to America” filled the air.



Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was also on the streets for the demonstration:


The expression of anti-American and anti-Israeli sentiment comes at an interesting time for Iran’s hardliners, who are intensely opposed to cutting a deal with the United States to restrain Tehran’s nuclear program. Quds Day is an annual occasion for this segment of Iranian society to express its discontent toward the Great Satan, but the conception of United States as Iran’s implacable enemy is being challenged by the ongoing diplomatic process, which has now been extended until at least July 13. If the United States and Iran are able to come to an agreement, it will pose a serious challenge to Iranian revolutionary ideology, for which the United States serves as an eternal foil.

No surprise, then, that the nuclear talks were another target during Friday’s protests. Note the reference below to the P5+1, the diplomatic grouping handling the nuclear talks, as a Zionist conspiracy.





And in the poster below, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is shown in dialogue with what appears to be a senior Saudi official — proof, many Iranians believe, that Washington is secretly doing Riyadh’s bidding by trying to limit Tehran’s nuclear ambitions.

As a spectator of the Al-Qud's Day Rally in Tehran, what do you think of their "anti-Zionist apartheid" rally? Tens of thousands of Iranians nationwide chanted "Down with America"and "Death to Israel"as American, Israeli, British and Saudi Arabian flags burned.
What do you think of all this?

An embarrassing time for Iran. But despite those displays of enmity the U.S still believes that Iran can be trusted?

As for the Iranians I think they've been brainwashed for far too long to notice that they are being deceived by their government. Their ambitions to be a regional power merely places them in harm's way. Are they too blind to see that?

You're right, they're totally brainwashed. I pity them. I hope they notice that no one give the Iranians a sh** , whatever they burn. Next time I hope they burn their pants . |0|

The problem isn't they hate our countries, but them problem is they're two-faced liars !
They're chanting " Death to U.S ! ..Death to Israel ! .. " ,but the story is totally different.§§•

In 1980 (Iran - Iraq war ) , they bought weapons form Israel to face the Iraqi army. And they still buying spares to their planes to keep it working .|0|

Iran Air force is operating the American made Aircrafts such as F-14 and F-5 ( unfortunately F-5 is no longer U.S-made , the Iranians added additional tail and name it Saeqah and they claim it Iran's made :D ) .

According to theorists the moment Israel was planted in the Middle East the strategies they used to defend themselves against those who would attack them upset some sort of equilibrium which previously existed. Working together with the U.S they started to stir up trouble in the Arab world. But what angered the Iranians most was the fact that the U.S cooperated with the Shah's oppressive regime. As oppressors of the Iranians they still are considered enemies of the Iranians.

The Iranian nuclear deal is an absolute waste of time and money when hardliners from both the U.S and Iran
don't want to see this happen. The fact that the Iranians want to negotiate with the U.S yet chant “death to America”
speaks volumes. There is no deal without trust and concession and Iran lacks both of that.
