    Iran needs a lot more of this activity.


    If they had enough citizens say "I aim to misbehave", we might not have so much of an issue with that country....

    I still consider the way you expressed yourself to be impolite, but I should not have expressed myself in the way I did. Mea culpa.

    Instead of all this long, drawn out discussion of manners, shouldn't you be asking yourself if it is mannerly to tell outlandish falsehoods in pursuit of an underhanded agenda?

    Somehow, the notion of lying in order to propagandize for Wahhabism matters not at all to you, but calling a person on the lie does.

    Good, more should follow suit. Religion is not excuse for discrimination.

    I hate to say this, but what are the chances or reprisal here? High I would bet. Maybe not directly from the cleric, but I bet it comes.
