TRUE! We all have opinions that we voice. These are just that...."opinions". No need to get personal. Why would my fellow American want or wish me hurt or dead? After all, we are each others brothers bound by this common bond of being Americans!

On Israel?

The hot tempers, the total lack or respect of women and the almost bipolar mood swings some of those people have over there is simply too scary to have any of them near a nuclear weapon launch control panel.
I am sorry, but as much as I side with some of the Arab causes such as liberty for the Palestinians I must admit that the majority of the Arabs and Muslims need a few hundred years before they are ready to handle dangerous stuff.

On the European Satellite news channel was an interview with Khomeini's old house man / care taker.
He is driving a taxi to make ends meet, and couldn't understand why those in power live in such luxury.
He said Khomeini lived a simple, frugal live, and even though he wanted Iran to be an Islamic Country, he also wanted everyone to be able to express their opinions freely.

I used to know Ayatollah Beheshti from Hamburg. After he returned with Khomeini's to Iran as his right hand man, common acquaintances had us renew contact.
He was the leader of a group of moderate Ayatollahs. Another group led by later President Rafsanjani, was negotiating. Rafsanjani left the building, which 5 minutes later blew up, killing everyone inside.
Ayatollah Rafsanjani is the perhaps richest man in Iran now, a multi billionaire, with several personal jet planes, and world wide investments.
From poor to untold riches in ten faithless prayers.
