    Yes. Millions actually who fled from the american wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Iran gave home to several million peoplle displaced by american agression.

    In USA many women are objectified and dont get same payments as men. In Iran more women have a high university degree than women in USA. USA has 12 times higher rape numbers than Iran.

    Iran is not perfect but we dont start genocidal wars like USA does. We dont murder millions for cheap oil.

    I dont blame your people for this. You are as much victims of this as the people of Iraq and Afghanistan and Syria.

    I know our mistakes, but you ignore your own. Thats the main reason why you fall behind more and more, why Iran gains more and more influence, why Russia wins, why EU starts to overtake your influence and China wins as well.

    Sure i can explain to you.

    Women in Iran can vote and can get elected.

    We have female politicians.

    Law states that women must cover their hair. How they do is their decission.

    Most women walk around like that

    [​IMG]

    It depends on the area and social statue. In cities and more urban areas women in general walk around more fancy. In villages with conservative people women cover up more.

    From the perspective of a Christian the head covering is Christ. NonChristian is different.

    Thank you for your kindness and replies.

    The only things we see in America is the violence and brutality in Iran.

    The public beheadings and large crowds chanting death to America, the murder of homosexuals make it very difficult to picture your country as little more than barbaric.

    Though we know that is by no means the majority of people in Iran. I am sure if you and I sat at a meal, we would become friends.

    Thank you again for taking the time to post here. There is much we can learn from each other.

    We have no beheadings in Iran.

    You mistake us with Saudi Arabia, your allie?

    Here we only see the violence and brutality in USA. The gigantic crime and murder levels. The police violence and the extreme racism.

    We see your politicians who wish us death in public



    All this makes it very difficult to picture your country as little more than barbaric.

    That is your Senator McCain.

    You said we have public beheadings in Iran. Which is wrong. We have no beheadings in Iran.

    This is done in Saudi Arabia, your ally. In Iran executions are done by hanging.

    You do your public executions with the electric chair or poison injection. Or shooting by police because wrong skin color.

    I was hoping you would reply to post #30.

    Also, I agree with you that the USA can seem barbaric. That is the expected outcome when "God" is removed from a society. It will only get worse.

    What kind of religious freedom exists in Iran? How are Christians and Jews treated? Is there religious intolerance by Muslims towards other religions?

    Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians have full rights in Iran. Iran has the largest group of Jews outside of Israel in the middle east. We have churches, fire temples and Synagoges and places in parliament reserved for those religions.

    Many greetings Darioush from Greece. I too want to visit Nasa and my brother lives in Oregon. I was offered a green card to go and live in America but declined. I prefer to live in Europe.

    Good choices. The Pacific Northwest is beautiful. I'd also like to do more traveling in Oregon and Washington.

    How friendly is Iranian society towards atheists or unbelievers? Is there any danger in publicly announcing disbelief in gods?
