With the disappearance of the last vestiges of hope for democratic transformation within the existing political system, the Iranian opposition to clerical dictatorship is closing ranks and converging on items of a common agenda for the future of the country.
Many of the items on this wish-list entered the Iranian political lexicon with the publication of a book in 2002 called Winds of Change by Reza Pahlavi, son of the late Shah of Iran, who is leading a campaign to overthrow the mullahs' dictatorship from his home in exile in the United States.
Iranians are left unprotected not only against man-made and natural calamities, but also against a government that has consistently assaulted their human rights and freedoms.

The Iranian Prophet Zoroaster is considered by numerous scholars as the founder of the earliest religion based on revealed scripture.
However, the Iranian language and its various dialects (est.150-200 million speakers) exceeds the Iranian borders and are spoken throughout western China, southern Russia, and eastern Turkey.
Iranian culture was long the predominant culture of the Middle East, with Persian considered the language of intellectuals during much of the second millennium A.D. Nearly all philosophical, scientific, or literary work of the Islamic empires was written in or translated to Persian as well as Arabic.

In 1953, prime minister Mohammed Mossadeq, who had been elected to parliament in 1923 and again in 1944, and who had been prime minister since 1951, was removed from power in a complex plot orchestrated by British and US intelligence agencies, leading to the dictatorship of the shah (Iran's monarch), Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.
Since the revolution of 1979 the Iranian head of state is the Leader of the Revolution or faqih, or in absence of a single leader a council of religious leaders.
Most Iranians are Muslims; 89% belong to the Shiite branch of Islam, the official state religion, and about 10% belong to the Sunni branch, which predominates in most Muslim countries.

Even for a regime that excels in deception, the announcement by the Iranian government that nearly half the eligible voters cast their ballots in Friday's election is an extraordinary bit of effrontery.
You will have to excuse us Iranians for our lack of sympathy for these so-called reformers: Just ask yourself, as we ask ourselves, where they were while Iranian youths were being beaten, tortured, abducted, maimed, and deprived of their legitimate rights to continue their university studies.
Although the regime had done its best to urge everyone to participate in the elections, brave Iranians were far more determined to tell the world and the regime, again, that they are tired, and are on the verge of achieving their much longed-for change.

We should do the same thing for the Iranian democrats that we've done in Ukraine, in Serbia and the former Yugoslavia more recently or earlier in Spain under Franco or Portugal under Salazar – that is, strong political support for those who want to change the regime.
There is a long list of things Iranians would like to see happen, and I doubt nuclear weapons is anywhere near the top of that list.
They are not threatened by an Iranian nuclear weapon the way the U.S. is. They are not threatened in the same way as the U.S. by Iranian support for terrorism.

While her representation of Iranian society as a duality between Islamic and Persian culture is somewhat simplistic, it should nonetheless help readers to understand that there is a great deal more to Iran than militant Islam.
However, the content of such rview about the roots of Iranians' worldview is limited to the short period in the history of this country.

 Catholic Community Forum Discussion Groups - United Against Israel
If air atrikes will set the Iranian nuclear program back one to two years, then they are not worth it, because when we subtract the 6 to 12 months it would take Iran to make a bomb at their present capability, we have only bought ourselves 1 to 1.5 years.
Already added, with the Saudis and Afgans on the terrorist FBI list, now we have to add a list of Iranians, and start worrying about Iranian covert operations on this continent for the next 40 years?.
The purpose of air strikes, then, is to significantly damage the Iranian nuclear program so that it would take Iran a sizable period of time to bring its nuclear program back to its present capability (say 6 to 12 months away from a bomb).
