    Iranian demonstrators burned photographs of Barack Obama today as they protested against America’s inaction over Gaza.

    Dozens of people gathered in Tehran waving Palestinian flags and defacing and setting fire to images of the President-elect.

    Iranian demonstrators have often burned effigies or pictures of US presidents in the past but this appeared to be the first time Mr Obama’s picture had been defaced, a week before his inauguration as president. ...

    You forgot one of the pics:


    Forwarded this to friends with the subject: Iranians turn out to be our friends
    And the email read: ...at least in hatred of BO. (and copied/pasted the pics and article link)

    Also changed my Facebook status to: Andrew has fallen in love with Iranians: (link). :)

    People need to see this before the everyone forgets that all US presidents regardless of party get the effigy-burning treatment from the 'arab street'.

    Almost, almost invalidates the chorus of this song: "and I'd rather be an Iranian, 'cause they all hate bush like me" Well, they hate BO too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BzuMJq9f1I

    They are probably upset because Obama did another flip flop.
    At first he said that Iran was relatively 'tiiny' and no threat.
    Now he says they are a major threat.

    I'd love to be a fly on the wall watching Obama when he sees these pictures during the next security briefing. It'll be a major shock to his ego that some people don't adore him.
    If leftists didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.

    Muslims burn effigies of their own leaders when said leaders are not radical enough . . . . .The only heroes of the islamic people are the murderous and radical.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
