GOTTA KNOW YOUR ALLIES:

Arab Spring Headed to Iran, Warns Senior Muslim Brotherhood Member (AMRUTHA GAYATHRI, February 29, 2012, IB Times)

A senior Muslim Brotherhood member and the head of the foreign affairs committee in the Egyptian parliament said on Monday that the popular political uprising that swept across the Middle East last year, overthrowing many dictatorial regimes including that of Egypt, is headed to Iran.

Essam al-Arian, an Egyptian lawmaker, said Egypt could potentially lead the changes in the region in the wake of the political turbulence referred to as the Arab Spring, Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported.

This is the first instance of a senior and official representative of the Muslim Brotherhood speaking publicly about the possibility of the revolution reaching Iran.

Iranians start with a big advantage because they can just vote their leader out if they return to the polls.
