So the world will eventually head back to the 10th century, huh?

My wife and I met a very nice young couple recently, and took them out to dinner.

He is from Iran, she is from flourence. Both are very modern and educated.

He has dreams of them both returning to iran, and tells me that behind closed doors, everyone let's their hair down, drinks, listens to modern music and woops it up.

Then they go outside, girls with heads covered etc.....

I hope they don't move.

Heard the same about Saudi Arabia. In fact, we have had a few Arab sheiks come into our port in the Virgin islands on their huge yachts and nobody can party better than them.

I've often said that if portions of the Middle East were allowed to abandon Islam for one day, all heaven would break loose.

I've known a couple of women who grew up in Iran but got out and became westernized including the woman from the mortgage company who I worked with when I bought my house. We got to talking a bit about her background and she gave me the same impression that others have stated on this thread, that Iranian women are forced to present a public image or face harsh consequences but most of them, particularly the younger generation live very differently when they're not in public and wish that their government would join the 21st century. It must be very frustrating to deal with such stupidity from those who are in authority.
