Fars News: "Iranian students" chant "Down with Zionist Saudis" and "Down with American-style Islam"

I wonder what's wrong with "American-style Islam." In any event, the point of this demonstration was to assert the Khomeinist fiction that only US allies are oppressive:
Large numbers of Iranian students staged a rally in front of the UN office in Tehran to protest at the massacre of peaceful protestors in Bahrain and other Islamic countries in the region.

Protestors voiced their support for Muslims in Bahrain and other Islamic countries and underlined that they will continue their support for the oppressed people in those states.

The students chanted various slogans such as 'Allaho Akbar', 'Down with the USA', 'Down with the Zionist regime', 'Down with Zionist Saudis', 'Down with American-style Islam' and 'Saudi commits crimes and the UN backs it' to voice their support for people in Bahrain and other Islamic countries.

The students urged the Iranian government to dispatch voluntary forces to Bahrain and in other Islamic states.

They also called for formation of a fact-finding committee to pursue recent events in those countries.
"A fact-finding committee"? That's something a mass demonstration can really get behind.
