Hey there,
I am originally from Serbia, American citizen now...
I really do not judge people by their origin. And of course, most of the Governments are dirty (dirty politics), therefore, what matters is the way you are, not where you come from.

Cheers!

salam.

i have nothing against iranians. im actually more used to saying persian. haha.

my best friend is persian and his family considers me an "honorary persian" its jsut funny becasue im vietnamese..lol..i try to speak farsi becasue his granma is over and i figured it would be easier for me to learn some farsi than her to learn some english...

anyway..

i agree that the political state of your country may not be at its best and i personally do not see it improving anytime soon, but the government of the country should not be reflected onto its people. i know that some of my friends as they travel through europe do get some harsh treatment becasue they are american.

Hey Shipill, hope you enjoy your stay here in Canada! Your right, most people are very friendly here. If you ever encounter those who judge you because your Persian, then just don't associate with them. I have friends of varying ethnicities, and the Persians are really getting singled out in todays times. There will always be bigots and racists no matter where you go.

I dont think you have anything to be ashamed of about your government. The western propaganda machine has obviously convinced you aswell that your goverment(iranian) is truly the axis of evil, whereas infact if you look at all the evils in the world you will find the american and british government have something to do with it. Its all about power mate.
If you get a chance go onto google video and watch "The Power of Nightmares". That will open your eyes and make you feel a little better about yourself and your government.

Well said!

The best is (IF YOU CAN) to leave the politics out of your life. In Canada, it is maybe possible. In the US -- hell no -- Bush made it the mandatory part of our lives...

I agree that all governments do things that are wrong, but you don't see any western governments publically stating their desire to wipe Israel off the face of the map and denying the Holocaust.

On the other hand, we do see the Western governmet publically stating the intention to wipe off three sovereign states -- Iraq, Iran, NK (Axis of Evil). One's down...too late for the other two...

No instead they support the illegal state of israel as they go about wiping the indigenous people of that land. Something they are experts in, as we can see in the case of the poor indigenous americans (the so called red indians). What a dirty and injust world we live in, full of greed, deceit and treachery.

Could you educate me on how Israel is an illegal state?

If you believe that George W. Bush wants to wipe Iraq, Iran, or Korea off the face of the Earth, answer me one question - Why are they still here?

There is absolutely NOTHING stopping the President from doing just that.

Hello. If this is news to you then the Israeli/American propaganda machine has well and truly done its job.
To cut a long story short, the British and French took over Palestine by force and then handed it to the zionist israelis. You will find a lot of true practicing Jews are also againist the zionist israeli state as they believe they were exhiled from Israel as a punishment from God and would only be allowed to return under certain conditions which have not been met.
However, as Christians and muslims alike believe armagedon cannot take place without there being Jews in the land of Palestine. So as you can see we are in a catch 22.

I am Jewish and have a lot of Iranian friends, they are all mostly great people and HATE Iran, most grew up there and despise and don't even consider themselves Iranian. They consider themselves of Persian origin but do no associate themselves with any modern culture associated with the state.

I would say they hate the fact that in their country they do not have the same freedoms we have in the western countries. Unfortunately the Western countries have no intentions of allowing these same freedoms to the poor people of iran. It is only a matter of time before the state of israel or america stop President Ahmedinajad in his tracks. "How dare this muslim have the aspiration to attain nuclear power, they would not be able to control themselves with such power at their disposal." Not like america, the only country to have actually used nuclear bombs- twice.
