The recent Israeli airstrike in Syria may be causing some sleepless nights in Iran. Ynet reported:
"Russian experts are studying why the two state-of-the art Russian-built radar systems in Syria did not detect the Israeli jets entering Syrian territory. Iran reportedly has asked the same question, since it is buying the same systems and might have paid for the Syrian acquisitions."Expensive air defences not going to work, chaps?
Meanwhile in London, this Sunday there's a demonstration in support of Al Quds day - the annual festival of supremacy started by the mad Ayatollah Khomeini after he came to power. There's also a counter demonstration, meeting at 12:00 noon in Picadilly Circus. An explanatory pdf can be downloaded here:

We are demonstrating in opposition to Al Quds Day and the Government of Iran, and in support of the people of Palestine, Israel and Iran.
What is Al Quds Day?
In 1979, Ayatollah Khomeini, the leader of the Islamic regime in Iran, called for a demonstration on the last Friday of Ramadan to support the "liberation" of Jerusalem (Al-Quds). Since then, Islamist groups supporting Khomeini's extremist ideology and the theocracy he established in Iran, have held Al Quds Day demonstrations across the world.
The Islamic Republic of Iran and its supporters have latched onto the Israel/Palestine issue in order to rally support for a regime which imprisons, tortures and executes thousands of Iranians, students, women, gays, trade unionists, liberals, socialists, ethnic minorities, and political dissenters.
Who are we demonstrating against?
The demonstration we are opposing is organised by supporters of the Iranian regime calling themselves the "Islamic Human Rights Commission". The IHRC is not a human rights group.
Over the years the IHRC has joined forces with other anti-democratic Islamist groups, including the vicious Hizb ut Tahrir. Regrettably, this demonstration is also being supported by the 1990 Trust, which is a non-Islamist advocacy group that supports black people in Britain.
If you're in London this Sunday, why not go along to show these maniacs they do not own the streets?
