On Wednesday in Tehran, an angry mob went to the residence of Ayatollah Khamenei and seized it. The situation in the city is almost out of control, the police can not cope.
Under the slogan “This is the year of blood, the year of the fall of Khamenei” the protests continue.
Last night, portraits of Khomeini and Khamenei were torn off the walls of Sari City Hall, a city in northern Iran, to applause and cries of “Death to the dictator.”
Despite rumors of serious illness and death, Khamenei spoke in public on Wednesday for the second time in a week, without mentioning the riots in the country.
Dressed in his usual church robes, he spoke for 55 minutes, focusing mainly on the Iran-Iraq war and “the need to educate young Iranians about this conflict and not fall for the deceit of the Western powers.”
Before his speech, Khamenei sat on the podium for almost an hour, listening to the speeches of the army commanders and religious songs. He got up unassisted from his chair to make his remarks, and spoke clearly.
Khamenei, a staunch opponent of the United States and its allies in the Middle East, is the supreme leader after the ty in 1989 by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who founded the Islamic Republic of Iran after the 1979 revolution.
