This is not going to work due App Engine being blocked to Iranian users by Google. Unless you switch to Amazon, Azure or other CDNs.

Just verified using some Iranian proxy:

curl https://google.com --header 'Host: maps.google.com' --proxy http://94.182.181.38:80

works, while

curl https://google.com --header 'Host: signal-reflector-meek.appspot.com' --proxy http://94.182.181.38:80

returns a 403 Forbidden HTML error document.

:(

Yes, this has been an issue since the first day that domain fronting was used to bypass censorship. Google for whatever reason has decided to put harsher sanctions than what US gov imposes on Iranian people.
