Iran: Massive Crowd Fills Tehran Streets for President’s Funeral, Chants “Death to Israel”

Seems like this dude was pretty popular.

The Guardian:

Tens of thousands of Iranians attended the Tehran funeral of the Iranian president, Ebrahim Raisi, whose death in a helicopter crash on a fog-shrouded mountain on Sunday has opened up a potentially volatile moment in Iranian politics.

He died with seven others, including the foreign minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, who was hailed by Hamas on Wednesday as the minister for the resistance.

Amid chaotic crowd scenes, the coffins of those killed were shown to people gathered for the funeral as the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, led prayers at the University of Tehran, where he embraced Raisi’s grandchildren and urged Iranians to remember a devoted servant. Many Iranians revile Raisi for his role in killing thousands of political prisoners during his political career.

Chants of ‘“death to Israel” were heard from the loyalist crowd as the coffins, draped in the Iranian flag, were taken through the capital as part of five days of national mourning.

Away from the religious ceremony, high politics continued with Khamenei meeting regional and Gulf leaders, as well as Ismail Haniyeh, the head of Hamas’s political office. Naim Qassem, the deputy chief of the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, also attended the funeral.

Referring to pro-Palestine protests at American, European and Japanese universities, Khamenei told Haniyeh: “Who would have believed that one day in Japan there would be demonstrations in favour of Palestine, slogans in [the] Persian language ‘Death to Israel’.”

He said “God’s promise” to “wipe out” Israel would come true “just as God’s promise to the mother of Prophet Moses came true. By God’s grace, the day will come when Palestine will be formed from the river to the sea.”

It’s obvious the Jews killed him. No one really needs evidence for that one.

His replacement is going to be way worse.

Jews are going to regret this.
