This can't be happening. A voice of reason out of the UN? Courtesy of the new Secretary-General (and former Prime Minister of Portugal).

To the best of my knowledge there are two Muslim sects in Iran. There is a relatively small Shia segment which is connected with th Islamic ruling class. It is dwarfed by a larger Sunni that is harassed and superseded yet it dwells in the oil rich southwest part of Iran. That sunni contingency has strong links to SA.
According to my information, Iran has a population of around 77 million of whom 90 to 95% are Shia.

Shia is very much the prevailing Islam of Iran -decidedly mainstream. The Sunni component is small enough to be considered insignificant.

(scroll down and see under heading Countries with More Than 100,000 Shia Muslims)

So dagbay, please tell us: did you post the above bit of disinformation out of ignorance (unmitigated by any attempt at researching your subject matter beforehand): or were you attempting to push an outrageous lie for some sort of political objective; not evident to the rest of us? :?: :?: :?:
You are correct. Sorry for the brain fart I switched the Sunni and Shia populations
I stand corrected.

Sorry to disappoint you Neverfail as unlike your screen name I fail and then some - because I do try to do much ... maybe too much.However repentance implies original bad intention which was not present ...

On being too "pro-Israel"

http://www.jpost.com/BDS-THREAT/Franco- ... ism-496581

Ref "the growing antisemitism across Europe and the Middle East." This of course goes hand-in-hand with the pernicious expansion of Islam in Europe.

I posted this concern on the ATOL site years ago. It is becoming a reality as Muslims start to assert themselves politically in Europe.

While Muslims in Iran are working underground to build a nuke and icbm. Other Muslims will soon be in a position to "inherit" and control an accomplished proven and fully developed nuclear arsenal of at least one of Europe's nations.
