After Admission That Iran Shot Down Ukrainian Jet, Iranian Protesters Shout “Death to the Dictator”

After the Iranian military admitted to shooting down a Ukrainian passenger jet, killing 176 innocent people, there are protests calling for Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to step down.

Kashimira Gander has the story:

Protesters in Iran are demanding that Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei steps down, after the country’s military admitted to accidentally downing a Ukrainian passenger jet, killing all 176 people on board.

Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 crashed shortly after leaving Imam Khomeini International Airport in the Iranian capital of Tehran on Wednesday. It came days after President Donald Trump ordered adrone strike in Iraq to kill Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Quds Force, on January 3, escalating tensions between the countries.

On Saturday afternoon, thousands of people gathered in Tehran’s main squares as meetings organized on social media to mourn the dead transformed into protests against the military’s mistake, The New York Times reported. Chants in videos seen on social media by the newspaper included “Death to liars!”, “Death to the dictator!” and “You have no shame.”

An angry crowd in front of Amir Kabir university in the city appeared to chant “Commander-in-chief (Khamenei) resign, resign” in a video, according to Reuters. The news agency said it could not verify the authenticity of the video footage.

It is important to take everything in perspective.

There are certainly those who will protest Donald Trump as well, but we don’t think of such things happening in Iran.

We expect Iranians to shout things like “Death to America” but we don’t often hear about the people turning on their own dictator.

The opinion of this author is that there is a big difference between those who protest Trump and those who protest the Ayatollah.

I do wonder if the protesters in Iran carry the majority opinion, because in America they do not.

Most, so far, seem to be in support of Trump.

Protesters in America do not seem to grasp how much trouble Iran is to America.

They don’t remember what happened 40 years ago and they simply don’t pay attention to the constant threats and harassment.

A plane of innocent people going down is huge, but it will get much worse if Trump can not diffuse the situation.

I am praying and betting that he can.
