Are the recent Iranian protests suspicious?
were protestors critiquing Iranian foreign policy?
Yes, the Iranian people have legitimate gripes (especially economic) with the theocratic government there, which is hardly a bastion of freedom.
However, there can be no doubt that these protests are orchestrated by the same meddlesome US-Israeli axis (and you can add the UK in there too) which has been the driving force behind all Middle Eastern wars for at least 50 years.
These protests are merely the latest manifestation of a continuous and incessant Anglo-Zionist policy of targeting Iran.
They may ignite further conflict, or they may be quelled, but either way, you will make more sense of them by understanding the long and deep history of US, Israeli and UK interference in Iran.
These protests are yet another way in which the US-Israeli-UK axis is showing it wants war with Iran - and will go to any lengths to get it.
The Iranian protestors were reported to be complaining about all sorts of things:
The big clue among these protest cries is this next one, where the "protestors" were said to have shouted:
It is perfectly understandable for some Iranian people to be complaining about the price of eggs.
It is also understandable for them to be expressing dissatisfaction with their leaders.
That doesn't even come close to passing the smell test...
Besides, Iran is widely esteemed for having had the intelligence and strength to intervene in Syria (alongside Russia) and stave off the coalition of mercenaries, "moderate" terrorists, Wahhabis, takfiris and other fighters - all funded and trained by the US, Israel, UK, Saudi Arabia, the GCC, NATO and other nations - who would surely have set their sights on Iran had they been successful in toppling Bashar Al Assad.
Israel, on the other hand, has been loudly complaining for years about Iran's involvement in propping up,
...and other places, so these "Iranian protests" constitute a perfect Zionist wish-list for the region.
Just a coincidence, I'm sure…
In a sad but watershed moment in its history, its democratically elected Prime Minister Mossadegh was overthrown in 1953 due to a CIA coup, after he made moves to nationalize the Iranian oil industry.
The Anglo-Persian Oil Company (later to become BP - British Petroleum) had been making a killing taking Iranian oil for British use, and only paying 16% of their profits back to Iran.
Once the Shah was installed, along with a new PM who was sympathetic to the British and Americans, the Iranians lived under authoritarian rule until the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
As Eric Margolis writes:
During the 1980s, Iran was consistently the target of US ire.
First there was the 1980 Iranian hostage crisis which affected the outcome of the US presidential election. Then, during the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s, started when Iraq's Saddam Hussein invaded Iran, the US decided to arm Iraq against Iran.
Iraq ultimately lost that
war and then the US turned against them too.
This has put it in the crosshairs of Israel, and since Israel controls America, the crosshairs of the US military too. There has been much Zionist discussion of how Iran can be contained and defeated.
The 2009 Brookings Institute (a Zionist organization) paper Which Path to Persia? devotes itself to this issue. Some from the Brookings Institute have even publicly floated the idea of starting a war with Iran with a false flag op, e.g. sinking an Iranian boat.
In his 2007 article Unsolicited Advice to the Government of Iran, Gary Hart warned Iran to be careful, since the aggressive US leadership and military need little provocation to attack their enemies.
He even mentions 3 false flag incidents in US history:
It would hardly be surprise if another false flag attack happened to lure Iran into war in the near future...

Cyber, Economic and Targeted Attacks on Iran
Iran has been consistently hassled by the US and Israel throughout the last few decades.
The entire 2012 UNGA had to sit through Netanyahu's kindergarten bomb cartoon which was patently absurd and hypocritical.
Israel continues to sit atop 200-400 nukes while Iran doesn't even have a single one. The US and Israel fought Iran tooth and nail over its (peaceful) nuclear program.
On several occasions, US and international officials have confirmed that Iran is completely abiding by the terms of JCPOA, despite the fact that the US-Israeli axis is itching for any excuse to go to war with Iran.
Then there has been the matter of the many dead Iranian scientists.
Just a few months ago, Reuters reported that Iran had sentenced a Mossad agent to death for his role in the assassinations.
Conclusion - Iraq, Libya, Syria… Iran
Iran is a theocracy, with power tightly held by the ruling class of mullahs (religious clerics), and thus is a far cry from a open and free society. However, we know that war with Iran (and then eventually Russia-China) is a integral part of the Anglo-American-Zionist NWO agenda.
General Wesley Clark spilled the beans long ago by admitting that the Pentagon had their plans for regime change in 7 countries, including,
…and now it's Iran's turn.
It is so laughable and utterly ridiculous to hear American leaders pretend that,
People of Iran: Netanyahu, Trump and all the other warmongers don't care about you at all...
It's time to wake up and smell the agenda...
