  • 5 Surprising Ways Iran is better than Israel
    • It is true that all citizens of Iran can vote but for some reason he omits the fact that it's minorities fare far more badly than those in Israel. Granted, there are certain disablilities to any minority, but they have redress to the court system, and often enough what is percieved as an inequality, is redressed.

      In Iran there is an Arab speaking minority that is, however treated very badly, and a while ago, an Arab-Iranian poet, an activist in that country for positive bilateral community relationships was charged with sedition and sentenced to death. As well, perceived violations on Islam are punished by imprisonment, and in some cases by death. Then too, it ain't easy to be a Bahai, or a Christian in that country either.

      The bottom line is whatever their nuclear policy is, their treatment of the "other" as it pertains to those who are not Moslem, or Iranian is severely lacking. Israel, may not be perfect, but it is far more liberal and accepting of "others" than Iran, and, indeed, in some ways more liberal than in some localities in the States, considering the militarization of some police forces that seems to be the trend in many places.
