Feeling better about Iran | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Feeling better about Iran

If you have been tempted to buy into the portrayal of Iran as a reckless, terrifying country, please take the following quiz. Each item requires a Yes or No answer:

Yes or No, Iran has the most advanced stem cell research in the Mideast.

It has an active in vitro fertilization program.

The state subsidizes surgery for transsexuals.

Iran has a Jewish member of parliament and a Jewish hospital in downtown Tehran.

Iranian state television recently ran a 22-part series dramatizing the Holocaust, including the man known as Iran's Schindler, because he saved 4,000 to 5,000 European Jews by giving them Iranian passports.

The answer is "Yes" to everything on this list. Which serves to remind us of the subtle power of brainwashing. Even if you call yourself left-liberal, it's hard to resist the toxic media image of Iran.
