Update on Iran

I'm an unapologetic Arabist, but I do follow Iran and try to stay current. Though clearly the regime is not in immediate jeopardy, the arrests of Moussavi and Karroubi and their wives continues to prov0ke criticism: these aren't seditious enemies of the state, but among the makers of the 1979 Revolution. Now Grand Ayatollah Musavi-Ardebili has criticized the regime.

The British-based Enduring America's Worldview blog is doing a good job of covering Iran and all the other revolutions. Until I have more time I definitely recommend reading them.
