What is good for the people of Egypt is illegal for the people of Iran, according to numerous reports coming out of Tehran:

Scores of Iranian security forces deployed in the streets of Tehran on Monday to prevent a planned opposition rally in solidarity with popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia that toppled their presidents, witnesses said.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Friday urged Egyptians to continue their protests, to "free" themselves and choose their own leaders and their own form of government....Speaking during a massive rally to celebrate the 32nd anniversary of the Islamic revolution, Ahmadinejad said that the uprisings in the Arab world are inspired by Iran's struggle against Western powers.
