Iran in Revolt, Egyptian fever spreads

A revolt is reported to be taking place in Iran, the ex prime minister is said to be under arrest as thousands take to the streets, following the example of the latest Egyptian revolution.

Iran's Ahmadinejad has claimed the Egyptians who toppled President Hosni Mubarak took inspiration form the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran that  put Ayatollah Khomeni into power and the establishment of an Islamic republic with which Iranians today are growing increasingly fed up.

It looks like that inspiration has gone a full circle and has landed back in the shores of Iran, as latest reports indicate that one person has died from clashes taking place in Iran.

It looks like the Egyptian revolution is begining to get Iranians thinking agian about what they ahve achieved since the Islamic revolution of 1979.

A student movement leader who contacted this blog, has said that students are getting increasingly fed up with the regime, its wasteful spending on projects like Hammas, the nuclear Energy programme the objectives which have not been made clear to the Iranians, and the lack of funds for better education and wages for workers in the Islamic Republic.

"Iranian students are fed up with the involvement of the clergy in their daily lives. It has become unbearable, they way we dress,  the Company we keep, the books we read what should be said and what should not be said, the freedom of speech and almost all other basic freedoms are curtailed by this Mullah led regime and we are utterly fed up."

We need change we need to look after our affairs before looking after Arab affairs, then we will be better," said the source. "All University students are in league with the opposition with the exception of a handful and we know who they are."

Is Iran moving towards Egypt, the next few days will tell, but like I said in Iran the Mullahs will think nothing of machine gunning down protesters
