Over the past week, protests erupted in a number of Iranian cities against the government's economic policies.

The pragmatic cleric, who defeated anti-Western hardliners to win re-election a year ago, also called for the lifting of curbs on social media used by anti-government protesters in the most sustained challenge to conservative authorities since 2009.

"The Iranian government dodged a bullet, thus far".

"Once again, the nation tells the US, Britain, and those who seek to overthrow the Islamic Republic of Iran from overseas that you've failed, and you will fail in the future, too".

But Trump is likely to pair his decision to renew the concessions to Tehran with new, targeted sanctions on Iranian businesses and people, the six people briefed on the matter said.

Darab Ganji is a political economist and a board member and guest lecturer at SMU's John Tower Center.

During a speech on Tuesday, commemorating protests against the Shah of Iran in 1978, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said "Revolution politically uprooted the enemy and now the enemy continues these attacks but always fails and can not achieve its goals".

The president has said that "oppressive regimes can not endure forever", and our administration will continue to support the protesters in their calls for freedom and demand that Iran's leaders cease their unsafe and destabilizing actions at home and overseas.

"Ultimately whatever Canada says - and at this point, we're only saying something, we're not doing anything - whatever we say it's really a domestic political debate that doesn't have much bearing on what actually goes on in Iran".

We stand with the proud people of Iran because it is right, and because the regime in Tehran threatens the peace and security of the world. White House officials linked the move to the protests. They fear what they say may be used as an excuse by the Iranian government to retaliate against the 5,000 to 8,000 Jews still living there.

Iranian millennials hardly keep their wealth a secret, especially in the age of social media.

"You had a good sleep while 40 million people were in trouble", Rouhani said.

Morteza Mousavian, head of information technology in the ministry of culture, was quoted as saying by Donya-e-Eqtesad Daily on Sunday that 9,000 business entities have been affected by the ban on Telegram.

California is home to the largest population of Iranians outside of Iran, almost 1 million.

In recent days, government supporters have held several mass rallies across the country to oppose the unrest.

Al-Quds Al-Arabi, an Arab newspaper in the United Kingdom released a report that Iran's former president, Mahmoud #Ahmadinejad has been arrested and placed under house arrest for condemning Iran's President Hassan Rouhani and provoking the unrest and #Protests that have plagued the nation for the past few weeks.

In a tweet on January 2, Education Minister Mohammad Bathaei expressed sorrow about the deaths of two teenage students, Armin Sadeghi and another student only identified as "Shayan", both of whom lost their lives during what Bathaei described as "blind, violent riots".
