U.S. and Britain fail to cause Iran unrest

U.S. and Britain fail to cause Iran unrest

The new figures come as Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Tuesday that the country had struggled for 40 years against attacks on "the revolution" and would not be daunted now.

More than a week of unrest has seen 22 people die and more than 1,000 arrested, according to Iranian officials, in the biggest anti-government protests for almost a decade.

Roughly 3,700 people were arrested during recent anti-government protests in Iran, one of the country's lawmakers claimed on Tuesday.

"I warn the president and security and judiciary officials to prevent the occurrence of a second Kahrizak", Mahmoud Sadeghi, a parliamentarian, tweeted on Monday.

While Khamenei has acknowledged legitimate demonstrations against economic conditions, he criticized Trump's Twitter support for those Iranians "trying to take back their corrupt government" and appeared to enter the debate over recent, controversial allegations about the mental health of the president, who insisted Saturday he was "a very stable genius".

He also lashed out at Donald Trump on Tuesday, accusing the United States president of being "a very unstable man" who exhibited "extreme and psychotic episodes".

As well as Washington and London, Khamenei blamed the violence on Israel, exiled dissident group People's Mujahedin of Iran and "a wealthy government" in the Gulf, a probable reference to Iran's regional rival, Saudi Arabia.

Initially, rallies began over the failing economy and falling standards of living but gradually spiralled into a larger anti-government campaign with people demanding an end to alleged corruption in state-run institutions.

"In Iran too, we have eyes and ears", Yossi Cohen told a Finance Ministry conference in Jerusalem. "We must provide answers within our means", Ayatollah Khamenei said.

"Such repeated, theatrical and politically-tainted resolutions show the nature of the meddlesome United States regime, which the great Iranian nation has witnessed time and again over the past decade", the spokesperson said.
