Frenzy up a country that rules not by democracy but theocracy... N martyrdom as many as one can... This is the code of an assini society that immerses itself in jihad.. N hides behind military uniforms as if authentic in its concerns

To be honest, these are the Iranians that are radical and conservative. They should die anyway. We want the young, progressive and open minded people to run the country. Not the religious, conservative fossils.

The hate-filled Muslims that “run” this sh*thole are an infection on our planet that needs radical treatment to kill it off.

Ah shit, now they need a funeral for those 35, where more people will be trampled and they will need a funeral too. So on and so on.

There is a part of me that sees the shock value that 40 deaths at a funeral provides, and it certainly would be shocking if it happened in the US. Then there is another part of me that suspects this may be a normal thing in Iran, and nothing to be surprised at.


If you think of during a concert, when emotions are rising and people are pushing forward more forcefully, everyone pushing into each other, people getting very uncomfortable about it but being unable to stop it. This is that situation but at least 100 times worse. People are tripping and falling over but the crowd is still pushing forward, making people intentionally or not start stomping on those that couldn't keep up. And when the crowd still pushes forward some people are in fact stomped to death. That's what happens in herds of animals of all kinds, and that's what happens in a crowd that tightly packed. You would need communication access with the entire crowd in order to stop it. Most of the time that is just not possible. Especially with a crowd like the one at the funeral.

I feel guilty being happy about people dying, but if you actually loved this fool enough to attend his funeral, I laugh at your death. You're probably a shit person.
