Hundreds of Iranians storm British compound in Tehran over Gaza ... Times Online (hat tip Joel)
Hundreds of Iranian radicals stormed the British compound in Tehran last night, replacing the Union flag with a Palestinian one in protest against Israel’s military offensive in the Gaza Strip.
British officials will be assessing whether the security breach, unprecedented in recent years, was an isolated incident or presages further violent demonstrations.
A hardline Iranian news agency said that protests against Britain and Egypt, whose embassy was also targeted, would continue.
Hardline Iranian students have often staged noisy protests outside the British embassy in Tehran, hurling stones and petrol bombs at the building, but Tuesday night’s incident was the first time in decades that they have breached diplomatic territory.

After attacking the British Mission, they proceeded to attack another "Zionist"

Am sent the link and said, "At least Tehran has no Bloomingdales or Florsheims, no Harry Rosen, A.Gold &Sons or even Neiman Marcus. The closest shmata store they found was Italian Benetton.
Jokes aside, this shows that when they say "Zionist" they can mean pretty much anybody, Jew, gentile, whatever."
