As the ongoing protests in Iran reached their two-week mark on Friday, the death toll has reportedly exceeded 80 people.

Iranians have been protesting against the regime since the Sept. 16 killing of Mahsa Amini, 22, who was arrested for “unsuitable attire” by the Islamic Republic’s “morality police” and then beaten to death.

Iran Human Rights, a Norway-based NGO, tweeted that “at least 83 people including children, are confirmed to have been killed in (the) #IranProtests.”

On Friday, the influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) also weighed in on the protests.

“Iranians in more than 80 cities across Iran are risking their lives to fight for human rights and protest the oppressive regime following the death of 22-year-old #MahsaAmini, who was brutally beaten by Iran’s ‘morality police’ for incorrectly wearing her headscarf,” AIPAC said on Twitter.

Who will tell the truth about Israel in 2023?

But there’s little doubt that the rising tide of antisemitism and demonization of Israel will continue to worsen in the upcoming year.

A publication that you can trust to supply you with accurate information as well as the sort of analysis and opinion that puts it all in perspective is absolutely vital.
