Experts say the ongoing political crisis and economic challenges are fueling widespread anger against the regime.
Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani is promising to resolve the country’s economic, social and political problems after days of protests gripped the Islamic nation last month.
“I want to promise our people, that the economic, social and cultural conditions of the country, although there are problems, although the people haven’t still achieved their dreams and demands, the government is capable of resolving the problems with the help of the people,” Rouhani told Iran’s state TV media. “God willing, together we’ll solve problems step-by-step.”

At least 21 people died in clashes with police, and over 1000 were arrested, after Iranians held demonstrations across the country against government repression and the poor state of the economy.
Mike Ansari says political turmoil is creating unique opportunities to share the love of Christ.
“Many Iranian Christians have turned to us asking what it is they need to do,” Ansari wrote in an email.
Ansari is the president of Heart4Iran Ministries, which describes itself as “a non-political partnership of multi-national organizations” bringing some 86 different ministries together with the goal of serving and blessing the people of Iran.
He says with all the negative news about Iran, it is easy to miss the big and often untold story of what Is really happening inside the Islamic nation.
