The revolution currently happening in Iran is one of the more under-reported stories of our time. Iranian patriots, led by women, have revolted against the Islamic regime. The regime has responded with bullets, mass arrests, and execution. Now the Iranian revolt has spilled over to the World Cup Soccer tournament in Qatar. The Daily Caller explains. [tweet_embed]November 23, 2022[/tweet_embed] “Iranian fans waving Persian flags were reportedly banned from entering the World Cup venue before the Iran vs. England game Monday as the flags are seen as a protest against the current Iranian government.” ”Similar to the Iranian flag, the Persian flag is characterized with green, white, and red horizontal stripes. The Iranian flag, however, has an Islamic symbol and phrase in the center as opposed to the Persian flag’s depiction of a lion and a sun.” [tweet_embed]November 23, 2022[/tweet_embed] The banner described as the “Persian flag” was the official flag of Iran during the Pahlavi dynasty, which was overthrown during the Islamic Revolution of 1979. The Iranian soccer team joined in with their form of protest against the Islamic regime that has ruled their country for the past 43 years. “Fans weren’t the only ones attempting to voice their displeasure with the Iranian regime. In what appeared to be a show of solidarity with the protesters, Iran’s national soccer team remained silent as their national anthem played ahead of their game with England, Reuters reported.” The murder of a young woman at the hands of Iranian security forces sparked the current revolt taking place in Iran. However, it has clearly been motivated by long-standing resentments that have been simmering for years. “Protests have rocked the country since the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was arrested and held by Iran’s morality police days earlier for refusing to wear a head scarf in September. As the Iranian theocratic regime has cracked down on protestors, it has only served to embolden more and more people to demand an ‘end to the country’s authoritarian clerical rule,’ according to The New York Times. “What began as a protest over a woman’s death and, by extension, women’s rights has morphed into an “eruption” demanding the end of a regime that “people no longer believe…is reformable,” director of Iranian studies at Stanford University Abbas Milani told CNN. ‘They want a different social contract without the clergy claiming divine right,’ he said.” Despite the regime’s brutal attempt to crush the revolt, it only spreads in scope and intensity.
