It's not just GitHub, We've had this issue with most US based tech giants.
It's all Trump's fault, he's extremely biased ... Saudi Arabia harbors and supports 10 times more terrorists than Iran ever did, hwhile alf Yemen is in ruin because of Saudi sponsored war, but all of that is okay with him as long as he can ship billions of USD on weapons sales to the Saudis ... anything they do is okay apparently, including the worst human rights violations, because they're "friends" of the US. Europe/EU still wants to have normal relationships with Iran but it's made all but impossible by the US. Trump's got no brain, no common sense and no empathy, worst president ever, but I'm stating the obvious.
