Discontent with raving and ranting lunatic Ahmadinejad is apparently rising in Iran. Most Iranians don't care that much about "the Zionist entity" which Ahmadinejad is obsessed with "wiping of the map", much less denying the Holocaust, and care more about rampant inflation and increasing unemployment and poverty. And this is before the full lagged effect of the recent collapse in oil prices. Iran, like all other Mid East countries, except for, of course, "the Zionist Entity", have almost no non-oil exports so falling oil prices will mean a almost proportional decline in its power. However, it remains dubious whether this will weaken the Iranian government enough to prevent its regional domination or a military conflict with "the Great Satan" and/or "the Zionist Entity", especially since it is far from certain that oil prices will continue to decline.
