IRAN: Officials praise Egyptian uprising, stifle domestic protests

Iran’s president declared Friday that Egypt’s uprising shows a new Middle East is emerging that will doom Israel and break free of American “interference,” even as Tehran clamped down on its own opposition movement.

Iran has sought to portray the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt as a replay of its 1979 Islamic Revolution — whose anniversary was marked Friday by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech and state-organized rallies that included chants of support for Egypt’s anti-government protests.
