It's shame that you can't be given the "opportunity" to live in Iran for a year, maybe you'd find a new appreciation for your freedom. :shk:

However in iran there is a certain type of oppression that isnt going on in the states and what not. But i dont think that is the total issue. I think the problem people have IMHOP is the arrogance and the holier than thou attitude that the statement was made. It came off to me as very egocentric. And whenever their is an idea presented in that way it doesnt give me alot of confidence in the persons integrity...if that makes sense. Therefore....regardless of whether or not people agree with the ideology of islam i think the thing that pissed alot of people off..or at least me was the pompous attitude of his statement. and that sets off a chain reaction of people that get angry and instead of going "hmm whats this revolution about" they go "who the hell do you think you are? keep your ideas in your own damn country!" you know what i mean?
