There is so much going on in this new Quds Day Poster from #Iran's supreme leader's office, I don't even know where to begin. One observation is #Soleimani's photo is larger than every other photo--including #Khomeini. pic.twitter.com/Tg8aE2q7Lt— Jason Brodsky (@JasonMBrodsky) May 19, 2020

Khamenei's office has released a poster imagining a future Eid prayer in Jerusalem with Nasrallah and Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh in the middle row. In the next row? Ibrahim Zakzaky, Quds Force leader Esmail Qaani, and Abdul Malik al-Houthi. In the next row? Bashar al-Assad. pic.twitter.com/Z6jTjyEDOr— Séamus Malekafzali (@Seamus_Malek) May 24, 2020
