JERUSALEM -- What are the Iranians saying to the outside world? One of those listening is an Iranian-born Israeli who's been talking with Iranians for years.
Menashe Amir hosts a radio program from Israel that talks directly with Iranians.
"They tell us very terrible things about what happens in Iran, the actual cities, the suppression," he said.
"They are very angry and they demand their rights. They want a cancellation of the results of the election. In fact, they want a change of the regime. They want to have freedom. They want to live like any other nation," he added.
Amir is doubtful the protests will last but says what's happened already has been a turning point for the Iranian people.
"It was a fantastical process happening in Iran because it proved that the Iranian people know what happens in Iran inside the country. They don't agree with the actions of the regime, they want to change it," he said.
Amir says the protestors are looking to the west and particularly the U.S. for help.
"In fact, the Iranians are very much expecting the international community and especially the Western country and mainly the United States to give them a better and more better help and to support them. They have been very much frustrated from what President Obama on the day that the elections have been taking place," Amir said.
"The United States is paving the road for opening the road for negotiations with Iran. So this is an amazing situation in the international arena that no one wants really and practically help the Iranian people."
