Hundreds of thousands rally in Iran against Trump administration

Several people carried black and white signs with text in English calling on Americans to visit Iran.

"Under the current circumstances, Rouhani seems the best option for the establishment". New sanctions on Iran's ballistic missile program was also fuel for the anti-America fire. I understand Israel very well, and I respect Israel a lot, and they have been through a lot.

The unanimous ruling from a three-judge panel means that citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries including Iran will continue to be able to travel to the U.S., despite Trump's executive order last month.

"All those arrested were non-Iranian nationals and some of them had links with a ringleader of a Takfiri group, who has recently been killed", the minister added.

Some signs specifically thank the USA people which, in this case, means progressives protesting Trump's travel ban.

But ultimately, said analyst Meir Javedanfar, any atmosphere of heightened tension with Washington benefits the hardliners and weakens the moderates in Iran.


Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei impassioned many marching on Friday morning, with various protesters echoing his sentiment in comments made to state TV reporters, according to Reuters.

A hardline watchdog body can control the elected government by vetting candidates before they stand and by vetoing policies.

"The leader's top priority has always been preserving the Islamic Republic". The affirmation has done on the same date which is marked as the 1979 Islamic revolution. With a rich historical and cultural legacy, modern-day Iran is a multicultural country with people from various ethnic and linguistic groups. At such events, Rouhani can strike a note that sounds as hardline as anyone. Anti-American rhetoric at this year's commemoration, however, was more subdued than usual. Our nation will strongly answer to any threat.

American and Israeli flags were burned and walked on, leaflets were passed out depicting an Iranian fist punching Trump in the face - with the words "down with USA" - and some demonstrators hung Trump in effigy.

Mr Trump has criticised a nuclear deal reached between Iran, the United States and other major powers in 2015 aimed at curbing the country's nuclear work.
