Immediate global anti Israel demonstrations – except in Tehran

The takeover of the Turkish-flagged Mavi Marmaris by Israeli commandos led to demonstrations in numerous places around the world. People in  Baku, Istanbul, and as far away as Edmonton, Canada, marched on the streets to voice their opposition to Israel’s actions.

Just what is going on? Has Ayatollah Khamenei become shy ?
