Iranian Protesters Show Support for America During Anti-Government Demonstrations

The powerful gesture was caught on camera.

While the governments of Iran and the United States don’t necessarily see eye to eye very often, the people of both nations seem to have formed a sort of bond during these trying times.

The latest fracas between Washington DC and Tehran has seen a US embassy attacked, an Iranian military leader assassinated, and the firing of 15 ballistic missiles at American troops stationed in Iraq.  It was during that last bit of chaos that a Ukrainian airliner was “unintentionally” shot down by Iran, killing all 176 passengers on board, prompting the people of the Persian nation to rise up in anger against their governmental regime.

It was during those demonstrations that a powerful gesture was captured on camera.

In the video, only a handful of Iranian regime agents were willing to walk on the flags. The students responded by heckling them as “dishonorable” and “shameless.”

Other video clips of the incident illustrated how much care the students took to avoid stepping on the flags…

The videos need to be seen to be believed.

President Trump has repeatedly tweeted his support for the Iranian protesters, encouraging those under the thumb of the regime in Tehran to rise up and against their oppressors.
