Iranian state media broadcast footage of pro-government rallies as the government continues to crack-down on deadly protests.

The network ran live video of the rallies in cities throughout Iran after six days of anti-government protests aimed at the regime’s corruption, weak economy, and a jump in food prices.

The footage shows demonstrators waving state flags and signs supporting Iran’s Islamist government.

 

This comes after the country’s supreme leader said the unrest amounts to meddling by the “enemies of Iran.”

Meanwhile, anti-government protesters stormed military facilities across the Middle Eastern country.

Protesters were filmed inciting a riot outside an army base in the city of Shahinshar, which is 200 miles south of the capital Tehran.

The facility is reportedly a base of Basij, a volunteer militia that is part of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard.

Several structures were set on fire, and protesters were throwing projectiles at Islamic Guards.

At least 30 people have been killed in the Iranian protests.

    Wow. Look at all that toilet paper…

  • Swampdrainer

    The problem here is that Europe has too many business interests in Iran. They will intervene in defiance of sanctions to help the ayatollahs. A British woman is also being held on some yet to be determined charge.
    Britain will likely send an airplane of cash for her release, the same as BHO did to get our sailors out.

    Think about how the middle east and Asia could grow into a wealthy, modern culture with advancements in living standards comparative to the west if they stopped murdering each other over who is in charge, Sunnis vs Shiites or Jew over Muslim, and all the rest…. they could be rich.

    • internettoughguy

      Much of Asia and even some parts of the middle east (Dubai) are wealthy and modern. The west is not in such great shape now that we need to be lecturing other people.

      • Wanda

        In what way is the west “not in such great shape”?

    • Kyle Smith

      You are correct except for one thing, some of them are already very rich and in charge. I think you can figure out the rest.

  • Bob Ellerd

    Both of them showed up for the “Regime’s” rallies.

  • Varangian Guard

    Thank Jimmy “the peanut” Carter for the collapse of Iran.
    At one time Iran was an environment of culture. Poets, musicians, authors, women in women’s clothing…….but ever since the Ayatoilet’s established the theocratic “council” the nation has become silent of artist, misogynistic, gray, and angry at infidels.

    • internettoughguy

      Thank the CIA for overthrowing Iran’s democratically-elected government and replacing it with the Shah.

      • Hummer

        That is true but Jimmy helped put in place what we have seen and see today-total haters of the west based solely on a totalitarian ideology. Carter was an appeaser and like their supreme leader laughing at us said America won’t do a damn thing.

        • internettoughguy

          What do you think Trump is going to do? To answer my own question – nothing.

          • Wanda

            One thing Trump wont do is illegally send them Billions in cash in the dead of night.

  • internettoughguy

    Not one Bigfoot-related death in the United States last year. THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP!

      Just one more success story for the President.

  • Scotty

    Clearly, the crazy mullahs are running scared. About time.

  • Aldo

    Allah would be proud !!!

    • internettoughguy

      Allah means God in Arabic. Not a separate Muslim God. There is no separate Muslim God. Muslims, Christians and Jews worship the same God. I’m always amazed at the number of religious illiterates who do not know that.

      • LILIBETH

        Allah was a moon god. His name was borrowed…. Jews and christians worship the God of Abraham the God of Isaac the God of Jacob the holy one of Israel. Islamists do not make such a profession.

        • internettoughguy

          See what I mean folks. Total religious illiteracy. Only now they think they can “prove” they’re right because they saw it on the internet.

          • LILIBETH

            Fortunately for me I don’t have to rely on the Internet. I work at a Bible college and we study world religions on a daily basis. Anyone who wants to can find this information. The Bible clearly States in both the old and new testaments the God that Jews and Christians worship.

          • internettoughguy

            I graduated from Berry College. I also studied world religions. The world’s three monotheistic religions (Christianity, Islam, Judaism) worship the same God. Neither the Old or New Testaments could have mentioned Muslims because Islam did not exist when they were written.

          • LILIBETH

            Neither the old nor New Testament mentioned muslims because they did not exist and borrowed from Judaism and Christianity. If you studied pro religion you would know this. Mohamad 1st went to a group of Jews and tried to insinuate himself into the line of prophets and they rejected him. This is well known and even in his own biography. You seemed to have missed some of your classes.

            No Islamist would ever tell you that they worship the God of Abraham the God of Isaac the God of Jacob the holy one of Israel. If you can find a Muslim who will tell you this they are no longer a Muslim periods

          • Kyle Smith

            That is not really correct. Here is the verse from the old testiment you say does not exsists: Genesis 16: 7-12 ” But [b]the Angel of the Lord found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, on the road to [Egypt by way of] Shur. 8 And He said, “Hagar, Sarai’s maid, where did you come from and where are you going?” And she said, “I am running away from my mistress Sarai.” 9 The Angel of the Lord said to her, “Go back to your mistress, and submit [c]humbly to her authority.” 10 Then the Angel of the Lord said to her, “I will greatly multiply your descendants so that they will be too many to count.” 11 The Angel of the Lord continued,

            “Behold, you are with child,
            And you will bear a son;
            And you shall name him Ishmael (God hears),
            Because the Lord has heard and paid attention to your persecution (suffering).
            12
            “He (Ishmael) will be a wild donkey of a man;
            His hand will be against every man [continually fighting]
            And every man’s hand against him;
            And he will dwell in defiance of all his brothers.””

          • LILIBETH

            Yes, Arabs are physical descendents of Abraham not religious (spiritual ) descendents. I have already stated this. Islam and the indigenous religions of the Arabian peninsula do not believe in YAHWEH, A God of Abraham the God of Isaac the God of Jacob the holy one of Israel.

          • LILIBETH

            I work at a Bible college and have read this hundreds if not thousands of times. I have never stated that these verses did not exist. Not sure where you got that from.

            The promise did not come through Ishmael (Arabs). The promise came through Isaac and his descendants (Hebrews of which Jews a tribe of). Jesus Christ is descendent and long awaited MESSIAH That was promised to Abraham. We as Christians are the fruit of Jesus Christ the Messiah the long awaited one. Jews or Hebrews, still await the Messiah’s coming. Christians believe that Jesus Christ was and is the Messiah. Islam has no connection to either of these beliefs or the God of Abraham the God of Isaac the God of Jacob the holy one of Israel – YAHWEH. They believe in a God to call Allah. In pre islamic times allah was actually the chief moon god with 3 daughters. Now the word Allah itself means God in Arabic. Their beliefs have nothing to do with Abraham. They are merely his physical descendents. Mohammed in forming his new religion borrowed from both Judaism and Christianity. He first went to the Jews near his home tribe and tried to insinuate himself into the line of Jewish prophets. The Jews rejected him. He had a lifelong hatred of Jews which is shown in the Quran.

          • Wanda

            I don’t believe you. Prove it.

          • Wanda

            You’re on the internet and are the best example of illiteracy I have found to date.

      • Varangian Guard

        If you ask moohammitt there is no other God but ahh-laah. The rest is idol worship and infidels.
        “Peace” means the eradication of the infidel, and for those that renounce – they can live as a slave serving the masters of Islam.
        Read “Interfaith Dialogues” and perhaps do a search for the “Red Pill Briefings”.

        • internettoughguy

          I’ll look at them. But if, as I suspect, it’s psycho-talk, I won’t read them.

          • Varangian Guard

            Interfaith Dialogues was written by the Islamic Community on how to present their agenda to the west, the “briefings” are lectures given by a man that previously presented the topic to Pentagon residents. he cites that book as well as others like “Quranic Concepts of War” written by an Iranian General. This isn’t propaganda, these are their words, not the infidels’. To understand one’s adversary you must research their literature just like they research ours. I encourage picking up a copy of of the Quran at the used book shop to further your study.

          • Stan d

            Rejecting information because you don’t like what you see, that’s not biased at all. Science is clearly not your forte.

      • willnkc

        There is only 1 truth, and I’d bet that the Muslims are way off the mark. God does not reserve virgins in heaven for killing innocent people on earth.

      • Stan d

        Allah had no son.

  • internettoughguy

    Donald Trump congratulated Recep Erdogan for destroying democracy in Turkey. He invited foul-mouthed, murderous thug Rodrigo Duterte to the White House for a state visit. He shows contempt for Angela Merkel and Teresa May.

    • “I’m a Rooster!”

      Hold on, internettoughguy, the barrage is a coming…

      • internettoughguy

        I’m ready. And used to it. I used to post on FOX “News” before Russian trolls locked it down.

    • Wanda

      LOL!! Did you ever take a look at those photos of Trump shaking hands
      with Merkel. you know the ones that prove you don’t know what you are
      talking about. You are soooooo BUSTED. I assume you did because you changed your narrative. Too funny. Never did verify that Trump “congratulated Erdogan for “destroying democracy””. I suspect you didn’t either.

    What a mess! What happen to all that money Obama gave them? If it was given to the people they would not be rioting in the streets?

        STRANGE!

  • Sheriff Bart

    I might say the rallies are all staged. They did the same in Cuba when Fidel would speak in public. The government would go into the houses and hand out flags, banners, posters, and pictures. They love those pictures don’t they. Like we in the U.S. have large museum size pictures of our POTUS in case a rally kicks in abruptly.

    • internettoughguy

      Of course the pro-regime rallies are staged. Any dictatorship can turn out a crowd on a moments notice. You have a remarkable grasp of the obvious.

      • sanman99

    The mullahs promised the women demonstrators that if they show up with pro-government signs, their husbands won’t be allowed to beat them for a week.

            Someone once said that a religion is a cult with power. Regardless, Muslims, Christians and Jews worship the same God. I’m always surprised at how many religious illiterates don’t know that.

            Very difficult to agree w/ internettoughguy. This news flash isn’t actually about Religion in the general sense, but the long standing oppression of the Iranian people by a rogue government.

            Jews and christians worship the God of Abraham the God of Isaac the God of Jacob the Holy One of Israel. You will not hear any Islamist state this at all- ever!

          • internettoughguy

            They call Abraham “Ibrahim.” Same guy. Same God. And btw, the Koran and the Bible both have the story about God testing Abraham/Ibrahim’s faith by telling him to sacrifice his son. In the Bible the kid is Issac. In the Koran it’s Ismael.

          • LILIBETH

            Mohammad “borrowed ” lot of beliefs from Jews and Christians. He was rejected flat out buy them. Hence his extreme hatred of Jews especially.

          • All American

            When Muhammad frequented the cave at Hira to meditate, Satan saw an opportunity to execute his diabolical deception. The fallen angel Satan appeared.
            Muhammad believed that he actually saw the angel Gabriel but it was the demon, Satan himself.

          • JL Ziegler

            Good, that’s a start.

            Pop-quiz:

            How many humanitarian groups are Islamic? How many Christian? According to the Q-book, who is an infadel? What are Muslims told to do to infadels? How old was Aisha when the 54-old prof-M took her to be his wife? Did prof-M have other wives at that time? How many? Was he literate? Why not? What miracles did Prof-M preform? Would you consider them miracles today?

            Just wondering where you stand.

          • Stan d

            Jews and Christians believe in a God that had a son, Jesus. Allah had no son, Muslims refer to Jesus as nothing more than another prophet which they call Isa.

          • LILIBETH

            Yes I am aware of all of this.

            It all started with Abraham, Sarah and Hagar. The acceptance and love for Issac and the casting out of Ishmael. Genesis 16

          • LILIBETH

            Yes I know when the “problem” starter. It actually started with Satan’s rebellion in heaven. It continued in the garden. Then the “brothers” descendents continued it as we can see today.

          • All American

            Yes that was the beginning of Evil

          • willnkc

            It’s their interpretation that is the problem. Nowhere in any part of the bible does it say that virgins are awarded for killing people.
