Could this portend the return of the Arab Spring?
Meanwhile, tens of thousands of people have attended pro-government rallies in recent days. If the government cracks down hard, as it did during the 2009 Green Movement, it must face real consequences. There is little wonder that the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia seek regime change in Iran, although they cannot achieve such an outcome.
As Saudi minister for Gulf affairs, al-Sabhan has a hand in helping shape the kingdom's high-stakes gambles to counter rival Iran. "The world is watching".
Though events in Iran are murky, their direction is historic.
Demonstrators of the National Council of Resistance of Iran protest near the Iran's embassy in Paris, Saturday, Jan. 6, 2018, in solidarity with those demonstrating in Iran.
And no, this Iranian activism isn't about women being tired of wearing hijabs. This includes the crime of "insulting" the supreme leader, president, or other government officials.
Iran's Revolutionary Guard said on Sunday the country's people and security forces had defeated unrest fomented by foreign enemies, as parliament and key security officials met to discuss the boldest challenge to the clerical establishment since 2009. That's the extent of Canada's concern? For the most part, they haven't.
Due to their wide-ranging occurrence and radicalism, the latest incidents pose a major problem for the Islamic Republic in that they punch a hole in Iran's carefully cultivated image of a relatively stable and secure country in a notoriously turbulent region.
The US recently announced it would slash economic assistance to Pakistan apparently over row concerning the war in Afghanistan.

"The UNSC rebuffed the US' naked attempt to hijack its mandate".
US officials, including President Donald Trump, have voiced their support for the protests since they began. This may be difficult while US sanctions hover over Iran's economy.
The Iranian regime - which has made a project of destabilizing others through terrorism and regional adventurism - has been revealed as deeply unstable. (Which is like asking, "Would you like a poison apple, or would you prefer this delicious cupcake?") Tillerson replied, "Our policy toward Iran is to push back on this hegemony, contain their ability to develop obviously nuclear weapons, and to work toward support of those elements inside of Iran that would lead to a peaceful transition of that government". Speaking to Fox News, Pompeo said "This issue is very real".
Despite that, the thrust of the political slogans at the protests were not directed at Rouhani. The president's tweets have not called for violence or disruptive acts, but he has commended them. Suggesting that Iran is just a country like any other and should be treated as such is the political equivalent of admitting that you don't actually own a TV. But almost all that growth was in the oil sector, where exports jumped from around 1 million barrels per day in 2015 to around 2.1 million barrels per day in 2017. Indeed, according to the Iranian Christian News Agency, Islamic clerics are alarmed at the growing number of Iranian youth who are abandoning Islam, converting to Christianity, and joining house churches. "Because in the end, the Iranian people will determine their own destiny", she said.
Social freedom is irreconcilable with Iranian theocracy.
This will not happen in Iran. Yet any surge in material prosperity Rouhani delivers is certain to undermine the religious faith undergirding the theocratic regime.
Amid social media calls for anti-regime protests in Tabriz, security forces are inspecting buses and interrogating match goers, local sources added. Iran and Hezbollah inscribed "Jerusalem" on their banner in order to conquer Aleppo, Mosul, Sana'a, and Beirut.
At one time, those of us old enough to remember the Cold War couldn't have imagined the demise of European communism.
Given the Russian opposition to a Security Council meeting on Iran, some diplomats and experts believe the meeting proposal itself could be a win-win for the U.S. He cited a long list of protest movements in the United States, including Occupy Wall Street, Kent State University students slain during anti-Vetnam war protests in 1970 and the protests over the killing of African-Americans by police officers. "He listens more than he talks", the Lebanese man said. Much about the future of the Middle East, and the nature of the nuclear threat, now depends on it.
