Also Islamic revolution is a source for movements because its effects on next movements are not ignorable. This fact leads Ian Birrel, former deputy editor of the Independent, to title “The flowering of democracy, or the birth of another Iran?

YES! He is really worrying about another Islamic revolution and he is not alone. West politicians and analysts, both, worry about the role of Islam in ME’s movements and is it really necessary to describe the reason?

By this defeat, Egyptian people realize they can stand against Mubarak regime. So we can judge that Islamic revolution reaches into fear, hatred and oppression or can stand on its foot and even influence on global scene and change the countries of the region.
Movement of Egypt or Tunisia revolution base on hope comes directly from Iran’s revolution and support of Ayatollah Khamenei, supreme leader of Iran, who stands against west plot to dominate ME by supporting current dictators in Egypt, Tunisia and other Arabic countries.
In this situation spread of Iranphobia and warnings against Islamic Revolution and even lying about current position of Islamic republic is a predictable reaction of west media. So we can like Imam Khomeini say to west parties that "be angry of us and die from this anger"
