Some of the more moderate elements in Iran asked that the "Death To America" chants be dropped, but hard-liners refused,
...including commanders of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), [who] have rejected those calls and said that the habitual refrain of "Death to America" will remain eternal.
Though Rohani did not attend the rallies taking place in other cities besides Tehran, Said Jalili was there.
Among the main speakers at the rally were former senior nuclear negotiator and defeated presidential candidate, hard-liner Said Jalili, who said the capture of the U.S. Embassy, called "the nest of spies" by some officials, showed that the revolution was on the right path.
Jalili defended the "Death to America" slogan as the slogan of the most "thoughtful and honest" Iranians and added the slogan was not directed against the American people but against its government officials.
He also said that Iranians monolithically support the clerical establishment, the government, and the team in charge of nuclear negotiations.
