    They are really beautiful, and don’t look like the integrists the media tries to portrait Iranians like.

    This country has been disfellowshipped from the world for the last 30 years, and nobody is allowed to listen or make business with them, still they managed to achieve quite a prosperous and developed country.

    As muslim countries go, they are far less fanatic than others, so much so that they have Christian and Jewish communities totally integrated in their society.

    Bombing them is a crime.

    I read that Israel actually offered to pay the Iranian Jews to move to Israel, but that they would rather stay in Iran.

    The situation in both Iran and Syria could lead to WW3 I worry, Russia and China both get a lot of oil from Iran, and both of them say they will fight for Iran, one Chinese Minister saying "even if it leads to World War 3, yet Israel has such control of America, and they are really pushing hard for military action.

    Most Westerners probably think Iran is a load of farmers leaving with AK47s in little stone huts in the desrt, where in fact it looks like this

    is it okay to call Persians 'Arab'?

    No. Different languages, cultures and history to start with. It's worse than calling a Canadian an American. Actually, I don't think they like "persian" either, its a European term.

    I do like some of the regional music.

    Anyone interested might want to read the graphic novels by Marjane Satrapii: Persepolis, Persepolis 2, and Embroideries.

    Would you agree?

    There is a lot of disinformation and misunderstanding in the west about Iran (Persia) and its people.

  • talesin

    Jeff - actually, most of the Iranians here like the term "Persian" .... even having vanity plates, etc.

    We have quite an old Arab population here (arrived before WWII), most of whom are Lebanese and Syrian. More recent influxes from Iran (since the Ayotollah's took over), and Iraq (since the first Iraq war).

    I didnt know i liked Iranian house...

  • talesin

    PS to Jeff - agree that the Iranians I know do not consider themselves 'Arab', nor European - but unique, and the originals! I was wondering what an Iranian (Persian) might have to say about that.
