Iranian protesters ‘ready to die’ for regime change, thank Trump but want more support
Fox News

As fierce protests continued across Iran for the sixth consecutive night Tuesday, among the thousands taking to the streets were those who widely appreciate words of support from President Donald Trump – and hope for more substantial support. “Here is real hell,” a 31-year-old protest leader in Tehran, who Fox News will identify only as Azi, said in a telephone interview during the early hours of Wednesday morning. “This is a real revolution against the mullahs. Iran is uprising. I thank Mr. Trump for his support, but we need more.”

Iran threatens to shut down Telegram social media app
CNN

(CNN)The Iranian government has called on the messaging app Telegram to block “terrorist channels” in an effort to quell protests, according to the state-run media outlet IRIB.
“If [the] Telegram manager does not respect Iranians’ demand, the application will be closed completely,” Iran’s Minister of Communications and Information Technology, Mohammad-Javad Azari Jahromi said on Wednesday.
A temporary block on Telegram was first imposed on Sunday after anti-government protests throughout the country. Telegram removed at least one opposition channel citing calls for violence, but CEO Pavel Durov has refused to shut down other channels he has called peaceful.

How To Correctly Support The People Of Iran
Forbes

Iran is at a turning point. All parties are before a major decision. Anything short of supporting the Iranian people’s legitimate demand for regime change would be tantamount to betraying a nation suffering for nearly forty years under a brutal and repressive regime willing to resort to all measures to remain in power.
We must put all differences aside and focus on the main issue at hand: the Iranian people’s demands for regime change, heard vividly through their “Death to Khamenei” chants, in reference to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. They should receive the support they deserve in realizing this rightful objective.
This is of vital urgency as the country judiciary chief, Sadeq Amoli Larijani, is calling for decisive action against the protesters. For those unfamiliar with the language used by senior Iranian regime officials, this is a prelude to major crackdown.

What Washington can do to support Iran’s protesters
New York Post

Even before the widespread anticlerical protests in Iran, President Trump made clear what he thinks of the regime. In recent days, he has even gone so far as to support those Iranians protesting the regime, in stark contrast to President Barack Obama’s desperate attempt in 2009 to curry favor with their oppressors.

Yet matching rhetoric with action has bedeviled Trump’s predecessors for decades. Confronting the mullahs is more important than ever at this moment. Here’s how Trump can prove to the mullahs he isn’t bluffing.
The first step is reversing the Obama-era policy that enriched the regime at the expense of the people. The Iran nuclear deal took regime officials and their assets off US sanctions lists, giving back an illicit business empire to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei himself.

More than 1,000 detained in crackdown against Iran protests, rights groups say
The Washington Post

More than a thousand people have been rounded up and detained in Iran over the past week, rights groups and the State Department said Thursday, as authorities try to quell the largest street protests in nearly a decade.
Amnesty International warned that those being held risk torture and ill-treatment in the country’s prisons, calling for the release of those arrested for demonstrating peacefully. Earlier this week, the head of Iran’s Revolutionary Court warned that arrested demonstrators could face the death penalty.
