Cartoon 106: Jannati: Resist Sanctions with One or Two Meals Per Day
In his January 30, 2014 Tehran Friday Prayer sermon, commemorating the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, hardliner cleric and Head of the Guardian Council Ahmad Jannati warned against a compromise with the US, aimed to end the sanctions, and encouraged the citizens to resist the sanctions. “This will require some resistance and endurance of hardships, and our people will endure it, too. There may come a time when we will only eat one or two meals per day. What’s wrong with that? And if things get worse, to eat one meal per day? Our people can endure,” he said. This is cartoonist Touka Neyestani’s take on Mr. Jannati’s remarks.
