Iranian Students Rally Against Ahmadinejad

The International Herald Tribune reports that Tehran University, aka Iranian party central, was the site of demonstrations against President Ahmadinejad. Mahmoud was giving a lecture to a pre-selected group of students at the university during the protests. The Ahmadinejad administration has attempted to suppressed demonstrations, adding to the rarity this display.

One of the central reasons for the fall of the Shah in 1979 was a lack of knowledge of the mood on the streets. With Mahmoud giving a speech to select students, one must wonder if he has insulted himself from the public as the U.S. and the Shah did almost 30 years ago.
