In his strongest response to Iran's post-election unrest, Mr. Obama said the Iranian government must understand that the world is watching. He called on Iran to "govern through consent, not coercion."

Mr. Obama made his comments Saturday, following reports of violent clashes between Iranian authorities and demonstrators in Tehran.

And, in Jerusalem Sunday, Israeli President Shimon Peres praised Iran's pro-reform demonstrators, saying he hopes for an end to Iran's current government.

In Germany Saturday, more than a thousand people marched in the streets of Hamburg, and some carried signs reading, "Where is my vote?"
