Rouhani Urges Calm in Iran as Protests Continue

In 2009, protesters were supporting reformers, but now their discontent appears to be with their leaders in general.In an unusually bold act of defiance, some protesters in Tehran and elsewhere called for the resignation of Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and witnesses described crowds chanting, “Death to the dictator” and “Clerics should get lost.”Video shared on social media showed the police in Tehran firing water cannons to try to disperse demonstrators in Ferdowsi Square, Reuters reported, although the footage could not be independently confirmed.Two protesters were reported killed in recent days in the city of Dorud, and there were reports of dozens arrested across Iran.With the Iranian news media tightly controlled, it remained difficult to assess the extent of the protests. But they were clearly severe enough that Mr. Rouhani felt the need to respond.State television also said the authorities would temporarily restrict access to Instagram and the messaging app Telegram, to “maintain peace.” Reports about the demonstrations were being spread on such platforms.PhotoWhat began as an economic protest turned violent on Saturday in Tehran. State news agencies showed footage of protesters attacking banks and municipal buildings across the nation.Credit Social Media, via ReutersThe protests flared against the backdrop of a deep economic malaise in Iran, punctuated by rising prices and high unemployment, especially among young people.Continue reading the main storyMr. Rouhani decisively won re-election in May, partly on Iranian hopes that his successful negotiation of a landmark nuclear agreement in 2015 with big foreign powers, including the United States, would lead to an economic renaissance and greater prosperity in the nation of 80 million.Those hopes, however, have so far turned into disappointment. Despite the relaxation of nuclear-related economic sanctions and increased sales of oil — Iran’s most important export — core American restrictions including a ban on Iranian use of the United States banking system remain in place, severely limiting Iran’s efforts to become less isolated economically.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Heading Toward Tax Victory, Republicans Eye Next Step: Cut Spending

And it was passed along sharply partisan lines, offering nothing to Democrats, and leaving them with no obligation or incentive to negotiate cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, the entitlement programs that are driving up spending, but are also the pride of the Democratic Party.For his part, Mr. Trump spent his campaign promising not to cut Medicare and Social Security. And Republicans will probably find, as they did when they failed to repeal the Affordable Care Act, that the public rises up to defend the programs they are trying to cut. […]

Contributing Op-Ed Writer: Famous Athletes Have Always Led the Way

All of this seems foreign to people who didn’t — and don’t — depend on their sports stars or their entertainers to double as part-time spokesmen and spokeswomen for their race. Taylor Swift carries no such burden; Bryce Harper curries no such expectation. Sure, Joe DiMaggio made the Italians proud, and Jews exulted in the play of Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax. But despite the undeniable prejudice some of them confronted, none truly faced the feisty assortment of bigotries that dogged the black athlete’s path. Muhammad Ali spoke against the war in Vietnam, often linking it to domestic racial terror, and he paid for his dissent, cast as a villain, a racial pariah, a traitor, a coward, a clueless and unpatriotic dupe. Ali died a hero decades later, but by then his transformation was aided by a disease that diminished his speech […]

Kirkuk, Jeff Sessions, Somalia: Your Monday Briefing

• Quotation of the day. “I just smiled when I saw this because it was like the Mad Hatter’s tea party — it was my fantasy come to life.” — Kelia Remsen, who attends a weekly pop-up tea party in New York City. Back Story This month, the Trump administration expanded health insurance exemptions for employers, allowing them to deny women coverage for contraception. Margaret Sanger, who opened the first birth control clinic in the U.S. on this day in 1916, might have had something to say about that. Photo Outside the Sanger Clinic in Brooklyn shortly after it opened in 1916. Credit Social Press Association/Library of Congress, via Associated Press Sanger’s work was driven largely by her experience as a maternity nurse. Abortion was illegal at the time, and she frequently saw young women die after attempting abortions themselves. In 1914, Sanger fled to Europe to avoid a potential 45-year prison term for distributing information on birth control. […]
