Amid growing unrest in the Persian nation of Iran, U.S. President Donald Trump wants to make sure that the will of the people is heard.
As recently as the 1970’s, Iran was a modern, fashionable nation where men and women both dressed and acted much like anyone else from a first-world nation. In many ways, Iran was a western-style nation rife with science, blue jeans, and a penchant for innovation. Outside of the complexion of those living within her borders, there was little to differentiate a scene from a city street in Iran from a similar scene in France, Canada, or even the United States.
Then came the Islamic revolution of 1979 in which the Iranian people replaced their western-style government with a ruling class of clerics, plunging the nation back into the darkness of theocracy. Since that time, Iran has been on a steady path to provoke the western world, with special attention being paid to the United States.
Today, however, something is stirring in Tehran and beyond, as the Iranian people rise up against their government again…this time pushing back against their Islamic leadership.
Given the oft-tyrannical nature of the Iranian government, President Trump has issued a well-disguised warning to those in Tehran that would seek the dispersion of these freedom fighters.
“US President Donald Trump has warned Iran that the ‘world is watching’ after two days of anti-government protests sparked by the country’s economic woes.
“Hundreds of people took to the streets in Mashhad, Iran’s second-largest city and one of the holiest places in Shia Islam, on Thursday.” The protests spread to Tehran and other cities on Friday, with police using water cannon in some cases to disperse the crowds.
“Initially aimed against high prices, the anti-government protests quickly turned against the Islamic regime as a whole.”
While Islam has come under warranted criticism in the modern world regarding their mistreatment of women and their wild intolerance of other religions, it is not often that we see such a unified demonstration against the often oppressive religion.
Given President Trump’s recent declaration regarding the U.S. embassy’s impending move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, there is quite an interest in how the government of Iran proceeds here. For decades, it has been spectacled that the Iranian Islamic regime has been funneling illicit cash to the caliphate terror networks of the world – folks who are wholly incensed by this recognition of Jerusalem. By allowing the people of Iran to freely rebuke their religious overlords, the radical Islamic cabal will find themselves with another chink in their already failing armor.
