More stories from Iran 

There are a few stories out there that I've read from people that have been to Iran recently, and say that the general populace doesn't hate Americans. Here is another one of those stories.

Here's a quote from an Iranian woman, in regards to a country's leader projecting his faith onto everyone. Very insightful.

There's a useful lesson here for George Bush's America as well as for the ayatollahs' Iran: when a religion is imposed on people, when a government tries too ostentatiously to put itself "under God," the effect is often not to prop up religious faith but to undermine it. Nothing is more lethal to religious faith than having self-righteous, intolerant politicians (who wince at nose studs) drag God into politics.
