The Iranian government has labeled Yale University as one of its enemies.
The New Haven school made the government's list of 60 "subversive" international organizations Iran's government said is trying to undermine the Middle Eastern country's government, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security included Yale among other organizations the ministry argued citizens should not work with or take aid from, according to The Guardian.
Also making the list were the National Democratic Institute, the International Republican Institute, the BBC Persian, and the Foundation for Democracy in Iran.
Another group on the list, Iran Human Rights Documentation Center, is also based in New Haven.
It does not really surprise me, but I am sure the Iran/Muslims can do no wrong members will try to derail the topic with but so and so does or does not-NOPE- This is a post on Iran and their hate of common people being educated or them thinking they deserve basic human rights.

I think the Iranian people should decide what and how their country works.
I think religious dictators for life don't care one bit about the average Iranian.
Don'T "YOU" think the Iranian people have the right to choose their government, religion, music..... I sure do...
And, as much as I could not understand it, if the actual majority of Iranians want a religious dictatorship and oppressive government, that is their right also.
At least THEY chose it, not have it forced on them.
