The Iranian Revolution
Reza Shah Pahlavi gained power in Iran in 1925, and sought to use Western culture to get stronger, but the western ways made many Muslims angry. Even with growing violence, Pahlavi used western ways and eventually was overthrown for a traditional Islamic rule, which took away many western ways.
Iraq and Iran didn't like each other, and Iraq invaded Iran with support from the U.S, thus starting the Iraq-Iran war. Since Khomeini's death, Iran has had tensions between Muslims and pro- Westerners. They started a nuclear weapon program, which concerned many, along with Iran and Iraq's Shia Muslim relationship.
