Tehran, Iran, Oct. 30 Irans Ministry of Education announced on Sunday that 20 million students in primary and secondary schools across the country will chant Death to America on Wednesday to mark the anniversary of the seizure of the United States embassy in Tehran on November 4, 1979.
Students across the country will be ringing school bells with chants of Death to America on Wednesday, November 2, and special programs will be held in schools, said a statement by the public relations department of the Ministry of Education, carried by the Persian-language website Aftab, which belongs to the State Expediency Council. The anniversary ceremonies are being held two days earlier this year, as November 4 falls on Friday, the Muslim Sabbath.
There will be a statement on the November 4 anniversary condemning the warmongering policies of the U.S. and the Zionist regime, the Education Ministry statement said.
On November 4, 1979, Iranian students led by a close confidante of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini stormed the United States Embassy in Tehran and took approximately seventy Americans captive. The incident triggered the most profound crisis of the Carter presidency and lasted 444 days. Many of the hostage-takers went on to become major political figures in Iran in subsequent years.
A series of activities are planned to mark the occasion, which will include parades, cultural and arts contests, essay-writing competition and newspaper production by students, and all will be centred on the themes, Why Death to America and Zionists?, Hating the Great Satan America, The Role of Students in the Scientific Development of the Country and Quest for Justice at the Heart of Domestic and International Issues.
A target rich environment !
Let me guess: Jimmah Carter will be the "Honorary Grand Marshall" for the event?
I wonder if they sent Jimmy Carter an invitation.
Do we really need to wait to nuke these morons? I believe it's inevitable, sooner or later they gotta go down. Let's get it over with already because they appear to be a "Clear and present danger".
Just whipping up the mindless, brainwashed, unwashed, radical masses of Iran...another Islamic radical pep rally...
And wasn't the President of Iran one of the hostage takers? I think it's time for SAC to dust off some SIOP plans.
probably not the push over they used to be
now that they are armed
pakistan was once a push over but not now
When do they unveil the hammer and sickle?
lets see 20 million?
either way THAT is significant. all youth or all b/s
neat thing is they will all be at one place on one day. we should set up a hot dog stand
That whole country has been pinning 'kick me' signs on their own back for months now.
Or a pig roast.
Will Jimmy Carter be riding on one of the floats? Just wondering.
Today Tehran. Tomorrow Paris.
Maybe they could combine this with a San Francisco-style Gay Pride Parade.
"Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran...."
With ham hocks and pork loins no less... :-)
No. They're so incompetent if they had a nuke it would likely blow up in their faces.
Incidentellay, Satan--whom they worship--would probably think that funny.
We can always rain on their parade.. with missiles! Allahu fubar!
