The end is in sight for Iran’s mullahs. It may take years, but the demise of their oppressive theocratic regime is inevitable. That prediction reflects one simple notion: They are afraid of Instagram.
We don’t know how and when the rotten Iranian theocracy will implode on its own – a topic on which even experts can endlessly disagree. It is a remarkable comment on the regime’s fragility that Tehran’s rulers feel threatened by dancing on social media.
Specifically, they are threatened by teenage girls such as Maedeh Hojabri. Hojabri is an 18-year-old gymnast in Iran. Like many girls her age around the world, she loves to dance.
