Newly-elected Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Iran announced an August 4 celebration for the swearing in ceremony of recently elected President  Hassan Rouhani at the Iranian Parliament, Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Araghchi said on Tuesday at a weekly press conference, according to state news agency IRNA.

“It is an invitation to all nations, except the United States and, of course, the Zionist entity, which does not recognize Iran’s doing, to participate in the ceremony of the performance of the President being sworn in,” the foreign ministry spokesman said.

Araghchi said that many other countries welcomed their invitations and would be involved in the ceremony, and added that “the names of the delegations of the countries that will participate at the ceremony will be announced later. “

    I’m surprised Canada was not also blacklisted. Disappointing…

    Wow, I really appreciate being in the good company of Israel! This is an honor for the USA, to be counted as standing with Israel. I wish our elected leaders in the US would quit asking Israel to give things up, like land and terrorist prisoners. I also wish they would actually help Israel in stopping Iran’s nuke program. I pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and for protection for Israel from her surrounding enemies, that would like to eliminate both of our countries.
