Iran’s new propaganda video, “Martyrs who defend the sacred shrine,” was recently broadcast on state media throughout Iran to inspire children to become soldiers.
This initiative is just another made possible by the billions of dollars Obama illegally sent Iran. A country, whose government, despite taking Obama’s billions, has declared America its sworn enemy and the “Great Satan.”
Similar to the Hitler Youth campaign, Iran’s video romanticizes war and encourages young boys to take pride in joining the Syrian civil war to defend Assad. In the video, children sing,
On my leader orders I am ready to give my life.”
“I don’t regret parting from my country. In this just path I am wearing my martyrdom shroud.”
“From Mashhad [north-east Iran], I will walk on foot to Damascus. I am like the bird who flocks to the sacred shrine.”
The National Council of Resistance of Iran, a 500- member parliament-in-exile, seeking to return Iran to a democratic republic, translated the video. It also explains that the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps’ (IRGC) paramilitary branch, Bassij, produced the video, which is similar to the methods the government used during the 1980s Iran-Iraq war.
