Iran’s top leader says the uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia are a sign of “Islamic awareness” in the region.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said during Friday prayers that people are witnessing the reverberations of Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution.
Khamenei says of the current unrest that “this is what was always referred to as ... Islamic awareness in connection with Iran’s great Islamic Revolution.”
Khamenei has urged Egypt’s protesters to follow in the footsteps of the Iranian revolution which toppled a pro-US leader and brought hard-line Islamists to power.
The Problem IRAN Has is that it is Shia - whereas, Egypt tends to be Suni - They are like oil and water and therefore I suspect that the only way Iran would successfully direct the traffic on this issue, would be via support of the Shia candidates in a democratic election. (Initially!)
I'm sure Iran would prefer to have Egypt to fight Israel.

Take into consideration our escalating debt, our overburdened justice system, our moral decay, our wars on terrorism, our deteriorating...
