  1. That is my impression too. Many time these experiences are life changing.
  2. I like coffee flavor for coffee The Best coffee I ever tasted was Ethiopia coffee. Perhaps with a mint leaf in it. That is also good. Milk and no sugar. Some coffee taste like burned plastic. I don't like that, but I have met people who prefer that taste. I have no clue as to why they do that, but we are all different.
  3. No it doesn't. The only difference with Trump is that he took of the mask. In fact some of the others is eve worse than him. They just pretend to be concerned with human rights but isn't really.
  4. Hold you hand on your heart, smile and say "I am sorry, but for religious reasons I do not shake hand with a person of the opposite sex." I know it can be a problem in some countries (like mine for instance) but I think it is better than feeling bad about it later.
  5. No one except Israel and Saudi-Arabia can have good ties and partnership with the United States. The US will even stab their friends in the back. Not even Europeans are safe. So my advice would be; don't even think about going down that road.
  6. It could easily come a cross like that. Then why do you make this distinction?
  7. I started half a year ago, but I got stuck on the repetition, so I thought I should think out of the box, and then I found some youtube videos and phone apps with flashcards in order to increase my vocabulary. I think that is the right approach for me and also dedicating more time and focusing on Farsi. I am trying to learn Arabic at the same time, but that is a little easier because I had some Arabic classes 30 years ago. That also helped with the letters. I only had to do a brush up because I knew them from before. And then learn the few extra letters in Farsi that is not in Arabic.
  8. There is a lot of videos on you tube too. I think the most important thing is the motivation. For me, among other thing, it is wanting to understand the Khutbah in the Mosque I go to.
  9. You mean that if someone is from another country and moved to Iran (like for instance Hawza students) they are "regime stooges" and not to be trusted?
  10. I think this is probably what Soldiers and Saffron referes to:
  11. Correct me if I am wrong, but if I am not mistaken the only situation where the taking of slaves is allowed is as prisoners of war. And war is only allowed against those who attack Muslims. This makes what Daesh did to the Yasidis a crime. The Yasidis had not attacked Muslims where as Daesh has actually attacked and killed a lot of Muslims.
  12. I would not blame people for loosing faith in Islamist's who blow them selves and others up. The brands of Islamism that has been spearheaded by Salafi/wahabi/takfiri ideology has made a mockery of a beautiful religion. Before the Syrian conflict Salafi/Wahabi ideology was heavily influencing mainstream Sunni way of thinking. Hopefully not so much any more. I wouldn't be surprised if the Western/Saudi support for the most extreme and sectarian branches of Islam is a deliberate act designed to tarnish the entire religion it self.
  13. Common sense. Yes there are definitely people in Iran that for some reason or an other don't like the political system. People who will happily work with the US, Israel and Saudi. On the other hand there are also a lot of people who is supportive of the political system and there is a lot of people who just want to go about their daily business and don't want to see their cars and houses being wrecked. It is also clear that the US, NATO, Saudi, Qatar and the UAE has previously used a tactics of a third force shooting at both protesters and the police at the same time in order to stir up sentiments. It has been used in Libya, Syria and the Ukraine in order to create civil war and regime change in those countries. To me it seams like that this is what they have attempted in Iran, but it seams like that the Iranian authorities has the situation under control. I have no doubt that the demonstrations against the rioters is genuine even though they may have been more or less organized or at least facilitated by the government. I read somewhere that the sudden rise in fuel prices might have been a deliberate provocation from the Iranian government in order to lure the "rats" out of their holes. Meaning of cause the third force that had been build up by the US, Israel and Saudi and was waiting for an opportunity. Only this time the IRGC was waiting for them.
  14. I personally doubt the Bahai has anything to do with it, but the MEK most probably does like also some Sunni groups funded by Saudi-Arabia. Monarchist still exists, but how organized they are I don't know. Back when the revolution happened people from the Shah's military and the Savak was executed, but their families has been living in Iran ever since. Not all of them escaped to the west.
