After President Trump warned the Iranian government not to harm the Iranian protesters, the Islamic government appears to have had a change of direction in its attitude toward the United States.
Ten days after tension had escalated between the two countries, the Iranian people are calling for leaders in the terrorist regime to stand down.
The escalation began when both sides fired missiles, with the United States taking out Iranian Quds leader, terrorist Gen. Qassem Soleimani on Jan. 3 with a precision missile strike. This was followed by an attack by Iranian forces on U.S. military bases stationed in Iraq, and shortly afterward a Ukrainian Boeing 737 was brought down, an all 176 people on board died.
Iranian officials denied they had been responsible until evidence surfaced to prove they were guilty. After admitting it was a mistake amid angry protests from their own people, the government signaled on Sunday it was in favor of “de-escalation.”
Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani and the emir of Qatar conducted a meeting, and both agreed “de-escalation” was the best solution to the growing tensions, reported Breitbart.
“This visit comes at a critical time in the region,” Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani said on his visit to the Islamic republic, believed to be his first official visit to Iran.
“We agreed … that the only solution to these crises is de-escalation from everyone and dialogue.”
U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the president was agreeable to “sit down and discuss without precondition a new way forward,” with Iran.
“Given the importance of security of the region… we’ve decided to have more consultations and cooperation for the security of the entire region,” said Rouhani.
On Saturday evening, hundreds of students attended a memorial at Tehran’s Amirkabir University, to honor those who lost their lives in the air tragedy, and sadness turned to anger at the terrorist regime for its actions, with students shouting “death to liars,” and demanding the resignation of leaders and those directly responsible for the attack.
President Trump sent out a warning tweet, “To the leaders of Iran – DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTERS.”
The heightened tension was still apparent at other universities in Tehran, with riot police carrying batons and ready with water cannons in case of unrest.
“Why should I vote for this regime?” Hesham Ghanbari, 27, told Reuters. “I don’t trust them at all. They lied to us about the plane crash. Why should I trust them when they don’t trust people enough to tell the truth?”
