Iran Students Protest Against Israel-Arab Ties

[IranVNC] University students in Tehran protested outside the embassies of Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar Monday against what they called some Arab countries' moves to normalize ties with Israel, Iran's official IRNA news agency reported. Protestors carried placards which read: "No compromise, no submission, fight until collapse," and "Israel must be wiped from the page of time." "The viewpoints of the heads of some countries on relations with Israel is not the perspective of the Islamic Ummah, but rather, tribal and ethnic viewpoints and, as Imam Khomeini said, they are the viewpoints of American Islam," said Isma'il Tahmurasi, a student representative. The students also denounced a Saudi-sponsored interfaith conference held last week at the UN in New York.
