Iran was a much better place before the Muslim revolution though Tadgh.

Personally, I'd prefer the Shah in many ways, but he messed himself up by being too close to the Yanks one day - and trying to be independent from them the next. If you're going to be a Yankee dog, you have to be like the Al Saud family - always knowing your place and always knowing that your master can kill you any time you displease him.

The Jew population in Iran is the second biggest in the Middle East after Israel.
They're probably safer there than in Paris or Belgium.

Basically, they made a deal in the 50's whereby the US would provide military protection to Saudi Arabia in return for cheap oil. But, one little caveat the Saudis insisted on was that under no circumstances whatsoever were the Yanks to interfere with the Saudis religious affairs.

We get an increasingly smaller amount of oil from the Saudis luckily, but they are part of this bizarre American/Israeli/Saudi triangle, which really began to flex its muscles during the first Iraq War. It's like one concerted Middle East destabilization project. They hold $117 billion of our debt, but that pales in comparison to the Chinese and Japanese.

The main threat to Iranian Jews is the Zionist lobby in the United States which is hell bent on destroying their country.

I think there is an actually racist component in this in that most American Jews are of Eastern European Ashkenazi descent and they see the Mizrachi as somehow not proper Jews even though the Mizrachi have much more actual ancient Hebrew blood in their veins than they do. This is part of the reason I roll my eyes every time roc_ gets on his high horse and starts giving Celts "anti-racist" lectures.

What kind of kunts are the US & UK who have the house of Saud as an ally? Is it because they sell them oil or summat?

The Al Saud family looks after the handful of criminal families who own the USA and England by buying shares in their companies, buying their bonds, and keeping billions of dollars in their banks.

The people appeared to have a lot more freedom and a lot less Islam before the revolution though, Ms.

Well, they certainly had less Islam, but you have to remember that the Islamic Revolution in Iran was more about getting rid of American \ Anglo-Saxon imperialism than it was about wanting Islam. The Islamists came across as the only ones who could get the job done. But Iran is a very ancient civilization. Islam has always been tempered there by the ancient traditions of this civilization. I think the excesses of the Revolution are fading away. You see what a great world leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is. Without a doubt, he is one of the superstars of world politics, making the likes of Obama look like small minded goats.

His reign ended some time ago Sir.

Yes, but not his magnificent influence. Millions of people all around the world are still watching videos of Ahmadinejad's speeches and interviews and being inspired to build a better world for all of mankind.
