“We must occupy the embassy and get rid of the English spies,” chanted the crowd of demonstrators.
“Death to England, death to Germany, death to France, death to the United States, death to Israel,” the members of the Islamic militia of universities in Tehran and the provinces sang.
They called for Iran to withdraw from the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and to continue the nuclear activities it resumed in the past week.

However, German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, in similar tone to his 2002 campaign, disagreed with the US on the possibility using the military option for resolving the dispute over Iran’s nuclear programme. He Said that it should be “taken off the table”.
