What to Make of Latest Protests in Iran?

For the past several days, Iranians have demonstrated against a government that has not delivered on promised economic improvement and against a regime whose ruling clerical class they despise.

The public’s animosity against the existing order, as past protests indicate, is no surprise. Particular aspects of this latest series of demonstrations, however, invite a critical eye by Iran-watchers.

The current protests began, not as usual, in the Iran’s capital, Tehran. The protests began in Mashhad, center of the wealthiest and most powerful religious foundation in the country. At first, the crowds were demonstrating for the long-promised but undelivered economic benefits that were supposed to follow the roll-back of internationally-applied sanctions against Iran, after the Obama administration delivered more than $150 billion to the Islamic Republic.

  • The publics animosity are actually second class Sunni citizens… the same thing in all of the so called Arab Spring uprisings…

    Of course… the Arab Spring should be more adequately called… “The Springboard to Advance Sunni Islam”…

    Remember… the biggest threat to Shiite Iran… <<< is Sunni islam…

    One Apostate to another… Sunni vs Shiite…

    Sunni islam and the Luciferian Globalists pins Iran against Israel in the hopes the two of them wipe each other out to sea… leaving Sunni islam freedom of both…

    • What to make of the latest protests in Iran? Easy!

      Iran is stuck in the inevitable end result of Islam.

      Islamic theology creates social dysfunction. It is that simple.

      Show me one place where Islamic theology works.

      • satanic islam mirrors exactly all the warnings of the End Times…

        Such as… the Tribulation… a terrible period of seven years for Christians… but a period of victory for satanic islam…

        And…

        satanic islam considers the number 666 a holy number… including having 6,666 verses in the satanic quran…

        Of course… these are evidence that satanic islam will have their season… and appear quite victorious… even with their antichrist Caliphate/Mahdi and the Christian False Prophet. Together creating Chrislam…

          How can you say such a thing?

          Just look at all the parallels between G*d in the old and new testaments in comparison with Allah as described in the Koran!

          • I don’t think you get where I’m coming from… I am against islam and consider it satanic.

          • Reader

            I think he knows exactly where you are coming from and agrees. He is just being sarcastic about it.

          • I just noticed how y’all have the same moniker picture/icon here… it must be automatic…

        • Chrislam an invention of Rick Warren, and it is rapidly spreading all across America. Many will fall for this evil

      Interesting perspective. What to make of the protests? Islamic entity that hates us vs another Islamic entity that also hates us. The only difference is the approach: One side will pretend not to hate us.

  • Hard Little Machine

    They are going to need a Syrian solution to this. Which is fine by me.

    • And what would that be? Shiite Assad taking out the Sunni? OR Sunni ISIS taking out the Shiite? <<< Pick a side… even though both sides want all us Infidels killed…

      • Hard Little Machine

        As long as they use all their WMDs on each other, it doesn’t matter.

    • caliroxanne

      I think your second comment is correct.

    Dear West, provide resistance small arms to them, IED’s…. Payback for dead
    Western Serviceman in Afganistan and Iraq, let them Hang the Mullahs and
    burry Islam, do for once the right thing.

    • Provide to whom? Shiite Iran? The Sunni? And/or both the Shiite & the Sunni?

      In other words… your comment contradicts itself…

      You can’t bury satanic islam by supporting one side over the other…

      Besides… the Luciferian Globalists have been supporting the Sunni… that’s why Iran is promoted in the islamic controlled media as the bad guys…

      • vwVwwVwv

        You snowflake don’t get it, go dream of globalism and other idiotic stuff,
        I don’t need a parrot to parrot bul”’t to me, this is a Persian Revolution
        no Sunni Shia stuff, but once again, I don’t explain things to parrots.

        • The evidence clearly shows those revolutionists in Iran are the impoverished, second class Sunni…

          And what you’re selling is… the idea that the West should provide arm’s to the Shiite in order to wipe out the Sunni…

          Please do correct me where I’m wrong…

        But we can encourage moos on moos. Keep it up chaps, the less of you left the better.

  • Gary

    I had to shake my head where I heard a Canadian media News report that the protests were because of the anti-Trump people and his muslm ban .

    Hopefully the worm has turned!!!!
