Revealing Images of “Global March to Jerusalem” in Tehran

The Union of Islamic World Stu­dents, an inter­na­tional Iran­ian gov­ern­ment spon­sored stu­dent group, released pic­tures on its web­site of the Asian del­e­ga­tion of the Global March to Jerusalem’s (GMJ) visit to Tehran last week.
The del­e­ga­tion left Indone­sia on March 10 and plans to cross Israel’s bor­ders and enter Jerusalem on March 30. The Asian del­e­ga­tion met with the pres­i­dent of the Iran­ian par­lia­ment, Ali Lar­i­jani, and the Iran­ian Pres­i­dent Mah­moud Ahmadine­jad dur­ing its visit.
The pic­tures were taken dur­ing the delegation’s visit to the for­mer U.S. embassy build­ing in Tehran, which was raided in 1979 by the Islamic rev­o­lu­tion sup­port­ers. Below are two pictures:
