In response to Trump's latest Twitter attack, Iranian officials have said online accounts in the United States, Britain and Saudi Arabia are fomenting protests, which Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei blamed on the country's "enemies". All those who are at odds with the Islamic Republic have utilized various means, including money, weapon, politics and intelligence apparatus, to create problems for the Islamic system, the Islamic Republic and the Islamic Revolution.
The protests started on December 28 in Mashhad and unexpectedly spread to dozens of cities across the country.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has hit back at Trump's comments, saying the U.S. leader - whose "whole being is against the nation of Iran - has "no right" to sympathise with protesters". In contrast to the demonstrations that became known as the Green Movement, the protests today appear leaderless and are according to some reports drawing more participants from lower-income classes than in 2009.
Until then, the Trump administration should do its best to publicize and promote the legitimate political and economic grievances of frustrated Iranians and support their efforts to recover freedom from an Islamist dictatorship that depends on thugs to suppress its own people.
Dimitrov wary of Kyrgios "tap" strategy

"Big protests in Iran".
That doesn't mean USA politicians can't sympathize with the concerns of young, disaffected people in Iran or that the US can't penalize Iran when it believes that country has misbehaved. "These hard-earned rights will be protected, and infiltrators will not be allowed to sabotage them through violence and destruction", Zarif tweeted on Tuesday.
THE FACTS: In Iran, protests must receive prior approval from the Interior Ministry, which oversees its police.
Tuesday Apple Rumors: Battery Replacement is Available for Old iPhones
This is due to Genius Bar members using a test that determines whether your current cell can hold less than an 80 percent charge. When Apple revealed that it was secretly slowing down old iPhones as their batteries aged, some were understandably pissed.
Many reports of peaceful protests by Iranian citizens fed up with regime's corruption & its squandering of the nation's wealth to fund terrorism overseas. Hardliners have long opposed Mr. Rouhani's policies, especially his outreach to the West.The current wave of protests has sparked comparisons with the mass unrest in 2009 after the controversial re-election of hardliner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
The government has warned against "illegal gatherings" while there have also been several counter-demonstrations over the past three days.
Iranians do vote in elections for president and parliament, but unelected cleric-led bodies vet would-be candidates and bar from running those they don't approve of. "With the demonstrations lacking clear leadership or a coherently articulated positive programme, the tide ultimately will turn back in the regime's favour, helped by a range of concessions and targeted crackdowns", Ghoncheh Tazmini, an associate member of the Centre for Iranian Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, told TWW.Dr. Vaez also saw an opportunity for President Rouhani, who could "leverage public discontent to push the political establishment toward structural changes so fervently desired by the population".
On Tuesday he described the regime as "brutal and corrupt", ignoring warnings that USA involvement could make it easier for the regime to blame outsiders for the unrest. That 1953 coup still fuels mistrust of the US among Iranians.
