Propaganda art in the Islamic Republic - II

This mural is placed right next to Meydoun-e Felestin in Tehran and ranks as one of my favourites (that doesn't mean I agree with what it propagates). You see the eagle, a symbol of the US and, more generally, of evil trying to grab the mosques of Mecca, Karbala and Jerusalem. But it is a task that is fraught with challenges as the soldiers of Islam and Iran are out there to prevent its realisation. Just another clarification... Iran, like any other country, is a rich mix of public opinion and this mural represents just one shade of it. Just like there are people who like Ahmadinejad and there are people who don't.
