This Week's NATIONAL ETIQUETTE AWARD goes to... Iran!

Iran Page in Wikipedia

World Factbook- Iran

Iran Daily

I hereby grant the National Etiquette Award to Iran, as it is customary in that country to remove shoes in homes.

The Iranians seem to be suceeding in their plan to enrich Uranium. It is rather worrying.

Will the Americans take military action against Iran? If they do, I will probably be undecided about the issue, just as I am undecided about the Iraq War (though I did support it at the time). I recently read 'Christinaity and War' by Laurence Vance, an American fundamentalist who is very critical of Bush's foreign policy and the Iraq war. He made some good arguments.

The Iranian president, Ahmadinejad, looks like a rather comical fellow, short, bearded and smiling a lot. However, he is deadly serious. He denies the Holocaust, talks about conspiracy theories and makes threats against Israel. A scary chap.

Iran is a Muslim country in which Christians do face persectution. For information on the persecution of Christians worldwide, visit:

You made me giggle with your comment on the Iranian president!

There are a few Iranians here in Montreal and they're nice people. But the country/government is a scary with all their nuclear threats.

Iranian carpets are very popular, though quite expensive because it is good quality. I am not surprised that they remove their shoes at the door!

If Bush is crazy enough to try invading Iran too, I am SO outta here! Or I shall have to build my own little nuke-proof shelter... scary. I think we should leave the Iranians alone and not upset them. *shudders* Would not want to get on their bad side.
