Iranian Anti-Israel ‘Quds Day’ Sparks Counter Protest in Berlin

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

German police were out in force to monitor hundreds of anti-Israel marchers and counter protesters in Berlin on Saturday to mark the Iranian ‘Quds Day.’ Police arrested a pro-Israel demonstrated though it is not clear why.

The Tehran-manufactured event is used to whip up Muslims around the world up into protesting the existence of Israel, just as Iran sponsors outright terrorist activity both in sovereign nations and outlawed terrorist organizations around the world as well.

Demonstrators waved flags from Lebanon and the Palestinian Authority, held banners proclaiming “Freedom for Palestine,” waved signs condemning Da’esh (ISIS) and brandished large photographs of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Three members of the Jewish Neturei Karta extremists also participated in the anti-Israeli protest, marching together with Muslim clerics.

Hundreds of counter protesters were also out to make their views known as well. They waved Israeli flags and chanted pro-Israel slogans.

Protesters from the LGBT movement were also involved in the pro-Israel demonstration. The reason had to do with highlighting the difference between social acceptance of LGBT members in Israel and rejection of them in Iran and the Arab world.

One of the pro-Israeli demonstrators was arrested by German police, although the reason has not been clarified.

The Israeli Embassy is investigating the incident; a spokesperson from the embassy told reporters the counter protest had been calm and quiet.

Millions of Iranians Chant ‘Down with America’ and ‘Death to Israel’

Friday, July 10th, 2015

Millions of Iranians took to the streets through the Islamic Republic Friday to celebrate “International Quds Day” and express support for the “oppressed Palestinian nation,” the regime’s PRESS TV reported.

Celebrants burned American and Israeli flags in Tehran, and festivities took place in nearly 800 other locations. PRESS TV also reported that “millions of people in other countries are also marking the occasion by turning out en masse to vent their anger at the Israeli regime.”

Saudi Arabia, which is aligned with Israel in its fierce opposition to a “bad deal” with Iran and which is at war with Iranian-backed Houthi forces in Yemen, was added to the list of the “bad guys” in this year’s Al Quds day festivities.

It is pure speculation and guesswork whether or not the United States and the other P5+1 powers will sign an agreement with Iran, but it is a safe bet that there is no chance it would be signed today when millions of Iranians are screaming “Down with America.”

No matter what comes out of the talks, Iran will claim a victory, and “Down with America” will be chanted

Argentina to Investigate Official for Incitement against Israel

Saturday, August 24th, 2013

An Argentinian prosecutor a government official of incitement against Israel and public intimidation.

Alberto Nisman, the special prosecutor investigating the 1994 bombing of the AMIA cultural center, said there is “concrete evidence to start an investigation” of acting Under Secretary of Family Agriculture Emilio Persico, who participated in an Aug. 2 ceremony marking Al Quds Day at the At-Tawhid Mosque in Buenos Aires.

On Aug. 14, the Simon Wiesenthal Center wrote to Argentina’s minister of agriculture, Norberto Yauhar, calling for Persico’s removal. “Apparently, the speakers at Al Quds Day in Buenos Aires feel energized and empowered by the Argentina-Iran agreement, and now foment hate with impunity,” Sergio Widder, the Wiesenthal Center’s director for Latin America, told JTA, referring to a much-criticized agreement between the countries to jointly investigate the AMIA bombing.

The next day, Persico went to the headquarters of DAIA, the Jewish political umbrella group, to explain his position. DAIA president Julio Schlosser then told media: “We understood his reasons and the situation is finished.”
