کاخ سفید: بازداشت مردم، قطع اینترنت و مسدود کردن رسانه های خارجی نشان دهندۀ وحشت دولت ایران از ارادۀ مردمش است

کاخ سفید: دولت ایران باید به مردم ایران اجازۀ اجتماع صلح آمیز و امکان مکالمۀ خواسته هایشان را بدهد، همان حقوقی که در مصر میسر بود.
WASHINGTON (AFP) – The United States pivoted from delight at Egypt's revolt to hiking political pressure on arch-foe Iran Friday, charging that the leadership in Tehran was "scared of the will of its people."
The White House said that Iranian leaders should give their people the same chance to express their will as Egyptians seized for themselves -- and noted that instead, Tehran had threatened to kill any protesters.
Iran's government was "quite frankly scared of the will of its people,"
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said, hinting that protests that had erupted in Egypt could spread to Iran.
"We know that what they really are scared of is exactly what might happen," Gibbs said as Egyptians celebrated their revolt, which came on the 32nd anniversary of the Islamic revolution in Iran on February 11, 1979.
Gibbs spoke as the tumultuous political events in Egypt, which brought about the downfall of president Hosni Mubarak, became the latest flashpoint for the bitter 30-year rivalry between Washington and the
IslamicRepublic.

Earlier, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had styled the Egyptian uprising as a revolt against a government allied with the West, and said Egyptians should be vigilant of the United States.
"The Iranian nation is your friend and it is your right to freely choose your path. The Iranian nation backs this right of yours," he said.
