Thus, it is no surprise that some Basijis are reported to have burned their membership cards in support of the uprising.
"Think of us", she said.
"The Iranian regime is now on notice: The world will be watching what you do", Ms Haley said.
The latest protests are, however, not seen as a challenge to the regime as were the 2009-10 demonstrations against the re-election of ultra-hardline president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a fraudulent poll.
The United States and Israel have expressed support for the protests, which began on December 28 in Iran's second largest city, Mashhad, but deny allegations of fomenting them.
Hardline preacher Ahmad Khatami told thousands of worshippers gathered in Tehran on Friday that "when cyberspace was closed down, the sedition was stopped", adding that Iran nation does not support a social network that has its key in the hands of the US.
Instead, the United States can sharpen the choices facing Iran as a whole - and strengthen the arguments of pragmatists arguing for a change in policy - by raising the costs of Iranian regional adventurism and nuclear pursuits while keeping the door open to diplomacy should Iran wish to pursue its interests peacefully. Another FP blunder for the Trump administration.
Fearing that further unrest could undermine the Islamic republic altogether, Iran's faction-ridden political elite has displayed a united front. With a young, tech-savvy population that wants more freedom and a better economy, the Iranian politicians' fear of youth organisations is not surprising. They were sparked by a hike in food prices amid soaring unemployment but some demonstrators later called for the government's overthrow and chanted against the country's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

At the heart of this is the long-running dispute over the Iran nuclear deal.
The White House has acknowledged looking at ways to help Iranian protesters access social media, but hasn't made any decisions on how to do so.
Certainly, any Canadian who cares about the ongoing vitality of our ally Israel - a country whose very existence is denied by the current day rulers of Iran - recognizes the menace that the regime presents to that country. I put that question to Prince Khalid bin Salman, the Saudi king's son and ambassador to Washington, and here's his answer, "The Iranian regime tried to block the future". The number of cellphone videos posted from Iran seems to have declined sharply through this week, but a total digital blackout will probably be impossible.
In October 2017, US President Donald Trump refused to confirm to the US Congress that Iran strictly abides the nuclear deal but at the same time he did not question compliance on the international level. As conflict escalated on the streets, oil workers walked off the job, eventually bringing Iranian oil exports to zero.
"One of the issues addressed by deputies and the parliament speaker was that of detained students, and it was decided that the Intelligence Ministry would vigorously pursue this and submit a report by next week", said Nemati, quoted by IRNA. After all, a loud statement unsupported by action is unlikely to have more impact than one delivered sotto voce.
Although economic woes have been the main cause of the protests, those taking part have also been motivated by anger over graft, social repression, deepening inequality and costly Iranian involvement in the wars in Syria and Iraq. Trump should leave the pact in place and concentrate on Iranian meddling abroad.
The support in the United States is quite bipartisan.
The recovery has nevertheless not been as significant as many Iranians hoped. Moscow said the Iranian protests are not an international peace and security matter.
