In light of the U.S. efforts to unite the Arab and Muslim nations against Iran and its support of terrorist activities throughout the region and globally, the recent attacks by ISIS in Tehran seem to be a godsend to the Iranian regime.

Despite all the risks and the restrictions in place, Iranian youth are getting around them to access social media networks, where they are questioning the integrity of the elections. The regime response to these curious youth is to give notices and warnings about these networks, along with large-scale arrests of social network managers.
PMOI supporters have been active online, especially in campaigns that have attempted... (more)
