Our Death-to-America Nuclear Negotiating Partners

(Wall Street Journal) Sohrab Ahmari - Thousands of Iranian regime supporters on Friday marked Quds Day, an annual hate festival established in 1979 by Ayatollah Khomeini. (Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem.) The Quds Day celebrants burned the American flag and displayed a caricature of what appeared to be King Salman of Saudi Arabia with his head morphing into a Star of David, topped by a Stars and Stripes yarmulke. All accompanied by the holiday tradition of chanting "Death to America!" One father told the Fars News Agency, "Our children who are less than a year old are tomorrow's soldiers against Israel." The infant son he held in his arms was dressed in camouflage gear. Regime leaders joined in the festivities, including President Hasan Rouhani and former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
