Iranian hardliners turned the holy pilgrimage to Mecca into an anti-Israel and anti-America hatefest, misusing the massive religious gathering as a platform to promote their despicable agenda.
At a “ceremony” held by Iranian pilgrims on the Plains of Arafat in Mecca, chants of “death to America” and “erase Israel from the face of the Earth” rang out.
The attendees were whipped up into a hateful frenzy after a message from Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei was read, declaring that the United States and Israel are the enemy.
According to one Iranian on the scene, “We have gathered here [to] punch America and Israel on the mouth.”
