Men of Persia, Lud, and Put Were in your army, Your fighting men; They hung shields and helmets in your midst, They lent splendor to you Ezekiel 27:10 (The Israel Bible™)
Following the rise in fuel prices, mass civil unrest has broken out throughout Iran. The Ayatollah supported a decision to increase the cost of gasoline by at least 50%. Khamenei appeared to be blaming foreign enemies for what he described as “sabotage” and called those setting public property on fire “thieves”. Meanwhile, Protestors have burned down Iran’s Central Bank.

The Ayatollah blamed his decision to increase gas prices on “expert opinion” and should, therefore, enjoy backing. The hike was an effort to compensate for the renewed US sanctions placed on the regime.
Even snowy weather doesn’t seem to stop the protestors from shutting down major highways.
Entire highways were shut down in Iran today.
By people turning off their cars as part of the rapidly growing protest movement.
