Iranian Hajj Pilgrims Chant "Death to Israel" and "Death to America"

The "Disavowal of Pagans" is a day and night of prayer and meditation held annually in the Desert of Arafat, near Mecca, as part of the Hajj, the Islamic pilgrimage that every devout Moslem has a duty to make at least once in his or her lifetime. This year the pilgrims include Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (shown at left visiting Medina, Islam's second holy city, who interestly enough came at the express invitation of the government of Saudi Arabia. According to the Iranian Isalmic Republic News Agency, a huge group of Iranian pilgrims chanted "God is Great," "There is no Deity but Allah," "Death to Israel" and "Death to America" in mass unison, as the ceremony got under way. What a spiritual high! [HT: LGF and Gateway Pundit.]
