KHOMEIN, Iran (AP) — Near the hometown of the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, workers at a small Iranian factory diligently add all 50 stars and 13 red-and-white bars to what are supposed to be U.S. flags, and carefully imprint the blue Star of David on Israeli ones.
That’s even as all their work is destined to go up in flames.
The company Diba Parcham Khomein serves as a major producer for the American and Israeli flags constantly burned at pro-government rallies in the Islamic Republic.
I remember thinking, years ago, that there must be factories in the middle East that churn out thousands of these things, employing loads of people, mainstays of the local economy, all of that.
