Notwithstanding the current propaganda about Iran deal, the real issues have nothing to do with nuclear program. The stark reality is that while as Iranians we love, revere and worship God and have deep faith in our religion, we loath the idea of being 'ruled' by Muslim clergy who is considered an alien agent of regression and obstacle to progress within our national body politics and culture. Muslim clergy known as 'Mullah' in Iran, has no place in our hearts and minds and if it was not for love of God and our culture of kindness, they would have not been able to survive and prosper for centuries. 'Mullahs' do not really belong to the Iranian culture. They have amply demonstrated that they have no respect for our ancient history, our rich cultural heritage, our pro-Western sentiment, our desire for modernity, our love affair with liberty and civilization.

Why keeping text of Iran nuclear deal 'secret'? Secrecy breeds corruption and suspicion while transparency and openness yield trust

Quote of the week
WE MUST ACT: What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone? How else can we put ourselves in harmonious relation with the great verities and consolations of the infinite and the eternal? And I avow my faith that we are marching towards better days. Humanity will not be cast down. We are going on swinging bravely forward along the grand high road and already behind the distant mountains is the promise of the sun.
