How come, "cassowary", you feel safe with those criminal Pakistani, who beheaded poor WSJ Journalist Daniel Pearl, having 60 nuclear weapon and missiles to deliver them and all those nuclear capable F-16 .. but you feel uneasy Iran have a few of that stuff ? ? Iran has not attacked anybody last 350 yrs .. and .. forget beheading, but not a single American got a bloody noise in Iran since 1979 despite @least 20,000 American special serviceman being in Iran when Khomeini set foot in Tehran airport ? ?

Why you feel uneasy ? Iran is the only country in all ME where Americans are looked at with sympathy and friendship .. relaaaaax

.
A spurious comparison. The beheadment of Daniel Pearl was done by an outlowed terrorist group. The Pakistani government is, at least outwardly, not hostile to the US. But the Iranian government is.
Indeed. As usual, collectivist thinking leads to inaccurate beliefs.

And given that Pakistani friends keep suggesting I visit, I'm pretty sure they -- the ones who would know -- are not concerned about my walking around Karachi, Lahore, or Isloo.

Austria's ruling coalition has agreed to prohibit full-face veils in public spaces such as courts and schools.
It is also considering a more general ban on state employees wearing the headscarf and other religious symbols.
The measures are seen as an attempt to counter the rise of the far-right Freedom Party, whose candidate narrowly lost last month's presidential vote.

If the West treated Iran in a civilized manner I guess the ayatollahs would have long been sent packing... For a 5,000 year old civilization Islam is just a detail which will sooner or later be corrected by the Persians themselves...

Interesting point, Sertorio. Had there not been the Great Game, all the meddling in ME affairs by Western interests, unrealistic national boundaries, etc., maybe radical Islam would not have taken root.

I doubt it. Radical Islam has always been around. The first radical.Islamist was Prophet Muhammad.

Hundreds of thousands rally in Iran against Trump, chant 'Death to America': TV

I suppose they are angry because Trump says they can't come in after eight years of Obama saying they could.
