Where Iranians can make Iranian Friends!
I was watching the news last night (local news) and they said that the new president of Iran (I forgot his name..but he is a whole lot better looking than the last two) had made a statement about Israel in October. This statement was something like Israel needs to be wiped out from the map. I don't particularily agree with that statement because regardless of what my faith is, it does provoke violence. And it's just inhumane to judge a group of people based on their religion, etc. After all, we Iranians pride ourselves to being human and have high morals and stuff. But what I found most funny was that Germany and Austria had attacked this statement by saying that Iran is advocator of terrorism and that the leaders of both country debunked such a statement. So in response to this, the president of Iran said, well since Germany was responsible for the Holocaust and the genocide of millions of Jews, why don't they grant a part of Europe to the Israeli nation...I am not a political person at all. In fact I hate talking about politics and religion because they always start endless and pointless conversations. but I was wondering if anyone else heard this news. And your thoughts on it. i guess I am bringing up a debate huh? Well i guess i am just curious to see where Iraninans stand politically outside of the mother country...|
