What the regime feared most is happening, Alinejad tells me. Tehran had stayed calm as nationwide protests at the beginning of the year engulfed 80 cities. Now an impromptu protest in Tehran by merchants against economic mismanagement has turned into a massive anti-regime event, with chants of death to dictator and death to Palestine.

People were out on the streets in capital today, despite the threat of being hung.
And Iran just got eliminated from the World Cup, adding to the regimes humiliation.
The Trump curse has been laid upon the Mullahs. Bend the knee like lil’ Kim.....or else.
Trump stated the door was open for a summit or meeting with Iran’s leaders after he gave his speech pulling out of the Nuke Deal.
Rock the Casbah!!
“death to Palestine”
Yowzah! Won’t see that reported in our MSM.
Worse than in Zimbabwae and Vietnam, and Vietnam tries to make its currency terrible to boost exports.
BBC: Shops were shut and thousands of people took to the streets of the capital. Riot police later fired tear gas to disperse the demonstrators as they marched towards parliament. It was the biggest protest in Tehran since 2012, when international sanctions related to Iran's nuclear activities were crippling its economy. The BBC's Kasra Naji says those protests led ultimately to a change in government and to Iran agreeing to substantive talks on a nuclear deal with world powers.
A dollar is currently worth as much as 90,000 rials, compared with 65,000 rials just before Mr Trump's announcement and 42,890 at the end of 2017.
Thanks BeauBo. I like that "Death to the Dictator" and "Death to Palestine" -- and all the POTUS had to do was nix the Iran surrender document and dig in a little in Syria. When it comes to Middle East diplomacy, and diplomacy in general, President Trump makes everyone else look like a circus clown driving a miniature car.
I was just going to post that 30,000 is the official exchange rate, but the real or black market rate is double that.
“This is not true. Get real.”
Better tell the NY Post.

He’s a troll.
Check out Islam. They want you dead.
What does that have to do with the revolution that is apparently taking place in Iran?
