epitomized by a small group shouting "death to America." However, many Westerners who have traveled to Iran have seen a completely different picture, often finding that many Iranians have more positive attitudes.1 Many American visitors have described Iranians as the most pro-American people in the Middle East.2 Deep frustration with the Islamic Republic and mistrust of the clerical establishment's propaganda have made Iranians "avid fans of America: its culture, films, food, music, it's open, free-wheeling society."3<quoted text>
They see US as an abomination due to its values, freedoms, etc. nothing to do with Israel but blame the Jews anyways huh.
Iran has death to US chants on a regular basis. nice try though.
So you are saying its the Iranian Regime and not the people. Ok SO why did the US support the Iranian leadership?
Iran oppresses its Jews, Arabs, Sunni and there are no Bahai left. They were part of the suicide bombing campaign in Iraq, have fought against US in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Iran funds, trains, arms Hamas, Islamiic Jihad, and Hizbollah all terrorist orgs by any means.
being the least antisemitic in the most antisemitic region of the world isn't saying much and the ADL is another political progressive movement which doesn't stand up for justice, against antisemitism, nor for Israel. They were hijacked long ago by the extreme left and their agenda like many mainstream Jewish organizations.
Iran hangs more homosexuals than any other country,no freedom of religion, no freedom of speech, no freedom for women. What a nice modern "secular" nation.
The Iranians just like the Palestinians put their leaders where they are. Maybe think twice when you put extremists in power based on their hatred of others. It will come back to bite you in the ass.
In addition to many recent observations of pro-U.S. sentiment among the Iranian public,4 several polls depict a general desire for a better relationship with the United States.5 A survey conducted during the reform era in 2001 showed that 75 percent of Iranians favored the reopening of official contacts with America.6 A survey in 2009 showed that Americans are more widely liked in Iran than anywhere else in the Middle East, even compared to U.S. allies such as India, Turkey and Egypt.7 The same survey found that "almost two-thirds of Iranians support restoring diplomatic ties with the U.S."
