"Death to Arab" graffiti in Karj city,
20 km west of Tehran
In April 2015 a mob of Persian men and women in Karaj appeared in a video chatting “ Arab Gomsho Biroon” which means "Arab Get Lost" in Persian ,extremely rude. They called it protest against Saudi-led Operation Decisive Storm in Yemen [also an Arab country] as well as alleged mistreatment of two Iranian teenagers in Jeddeh airport. Despite its massive presence police did nothing to stop the crowd from chanting these racist slogans.
Such anti-Arabism and derogatory language among Persians and Persian dominated media is widespread and tolerated if not encouraged but Iranian authorities. In May 1985 Arab protesters were suppressed and hundreds were detained by authorities for protesting against extremely insulting article in the state-owned newspaper Etelaat. Protests forced then president and current supreme leader to apologised to Ahwazi Arabs.
