President-elect Obama says the U.S. should engage Iran. As one of our friends points out, “He has a choice: Engage with what Larijani represents, or engage with the generation of that student.” Iran’s universities are again the scene of battles over the country’s future. In the digital age, we’re able to take a better peek inside. Footage of recent student protests in Tehran, Shiraz and Hamedan are all over the Internet. In particular, one clip of a student dressing down a government dignitary reveals a remarkable willingness to defy the regime. On the video, a young man at Shiraz University rises to address the visiting speaker of parliament and former nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani. “I’m not going to ask you a question because I don’t accept you as the legitimate speaker or the parliament as legitimate,” the student says, citing the elimination of opposition candidates in the previous parliamentary election.
