Here is a remarkable Flickr gallery on “Iran”:http://www.flickr.com/photos/fhashemi/sets/72157619758530748/show/. Here you will see Iranians setting fire to a poster of “Ayatollah Khamenei”:http://raymankojast.blogspot.com/2009/06/people-set-khameneis-billboard-on-fire.html. The Iranian regime’s favorite words are “Marg bar [insert name of enemy]”– “Death to [insert name of enemy].” Generally the “enemy” is America and Israel. Recently it has been those who oppose Khamenei. So now the demonstrators are turning that around with cries of “Marg bar diktator.” No translation needed.
