Raw Video: 'Occupy Wall Street' Rally in Tehran - YouTube


The salient part of this is not that the people are protesting, but that they are ALLOWED to protest without the Iranian guards beating them down. So this must mean that the leadership is in approval of the Occupy Movements.

Change those signs to something Anti-Iranian and watch the heads fly off.

Protesters in Iran also used twitter and other various internet sites to promote their movement. Many of the protesters were glasses, Watch out for glass wearing people who use twitter. We should have known.

So what you're saying is that the Iranian Guard has more respect for human rights than the NYPD? Really, that's kind of sad.

No, he's saying the guards are not going to crack down on Iranian-friendly protests. Iranian guards use bullets and machetes instead of nightsticks.

Burning the flag of Israel + Down With Wall Street. Get the connection???

Do you know what "staged" means???

The only protests in Iran are those that the government organizes and you are ordered to attend while there is a gun in your back. Those guards were not protecting "protesters" they were they to make sure the "protesters" were doing what they were told to do. If that was pro-American none of them would see tomorrow, and possibly their families.

Not everything is what it appears to be.

I think it's safe to say that most Middle Eastern Muslim extremists don't have a very high approval rating for Wall Street or the financial markets of New York in general.

Remember 9/11/01, by chance?
