Slogans condemning "British Invasion" and calling for the eradication of Israel displayed during Iranian soccer match

Here are slogans displayed on a large monitor during the annual match of the season between the Piruzi and Istighlal soccer teams. Highlights of this match were aired on the Iranian News Channel on April 1, 2007. (This is via the MEMRI Blog.) This isn’t too subtle but on the other hand, I’m not sure how many people in the stadium are paying attention – they paid to see a soccer game not political propaganda.
