Note from Pastor Kevin Lea:  There was a time in the past when some of those in charge of and living in the Persian (Iranian) empire were celebrating that the Jews were about to be exterminated.  It didn’t turn out well for them then (read the book of Esther), and it will not turn out well for them this time either.

The festival not only targets Israel, but also the United States over its support of Israel, and even the Saudi government, referencing what organizers called “damned Wahabism”.
