    co-existance doesn't look so bad.

    they live under a regime of petty tyrants, rogues and knaves, like us
    Pg. 324: "the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences."

    About half the hotties in those pictures would be stoned to death if they were caught walking the streets of Tehran dressed like that.

    And no we are not alike in our governments, perhaps you should move there if you think that and then let us know how it is before they make an example out of you for being a infidel.

    "I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."

    Are you equating our respective political environment?

    If you are just pointing out that the common person is the same all over the world I would agree. Mostly. Everyone wants a nice husband/wife and job and house, likes children, flowers, and pretty sunsets,.. LOL! That is a little simplistic but I reckon it is the truth.

    they supposedly have the 3rd largest Jewish population in the world, behind Israel and the US, and according to the State Dept. about 250 to 300k Christians living there.

    "Social networking" is an oxymoron.
