I spend a couple of weeks every year in Iran, and the Iran you see when you're actually there is very different from the one typically portrayed in mainstream American media.

The demographics of Iran are somewhat similar to those of America, I think: an older (and more rural) generation terrified of change slowly being replaced by a younger (and more urban) one eager to embrace it.
There wasn’t much exceptional about my recent lunch out with a couple dozen young, aspiring entrepreneurs. It was a typical, crowded, buzzing, Nandos-like joint—good food cheap, easy to pull tables together so we could talk. These were men and women debating the latest technologies, describing their recent ideas, regularly interchanging...

The War that Haunts Iran’s Negotiators
By Robin Wright

Officially, the United States was neutral. But Washington did not want Iran to win, so U.S. intelligence provided satellite imagery of Iranian positions to Iraq, along with military options. With American and other foreign guidance, the Iraqis constructed a replica of Faw for practice runs.

Iraq also used U.S. intelligence to unleash chemical weapons against the Iranians in Faw. U.N. weapons inspectors documented Iraq’s repeated use of both mustard gas and nerve agents between 1983 and 1988. Washington opted to ignore it. At Faw, thousands of Iranians died. Syringes were littered next to bodies, a U.S. intelligence source told me; Iranian forces had tried to inject themselves with antidotes. The battle lasted only thirty-six hours; it was Iraq’s biggest gain in more than seven years. The war ended four months later, when Iran agreed to a cease-fire.

A U.N. report said that Iraq dropped almost twenty thousand chemical bombs over the course of six years. It also fired more than fifty-four thousand chemical artillery shells and twenty-seven thousand short-range chemical rockets. Almost two-thirds were used during the final eighteen months of the conflict. U.S. intelligence estimated, at the time, that Iran suffered more than fifty thousand casualties—deaths and injuries–from Iraq’s use of nerve agents and toxic gases. A senior Reagan Administration official told me that he was ashamed of the covert U.S. role at Faw and during the final period of the war.

We have been required to feel that we are before God. We must talk to and from our hearts. These are all important. These are the soul of prayers, and we must pay attention to them when we pray, propagate praying, or teach it to other people. We may not be able to truly explain the importance of prayers. Imam Sadiq, while ill in bed and about to die, told his executor before his death: "Those who debase prayers are not among my followers."
Ayatollah Khamenei, 11/19/2008

"Wherever oppression exists, there are two sides: the oppressor and the oppressed. We advocate for the oppressed and we are opposed to the oppressor."

All good and great.  The fact that we are forced to be the district attorney, the jury, and also the executioner has posed some difficult problems during the last few centuries.

Ayatollah Khamenei in cadet graduation ceremony at Iman Hossein university:
- They say new things in negotiations;we already said that we won't allow foreigners to carry out any inspections on military sites.
- Enemies and some stupid officials in ‪#‎PersianGulf‬ try to push proxy war to Iran's borders; in case of mischief, Iran's response will be very hard.
- I will not let foreigners talk to and interrogate scientists who are the dear and distinguished children of ‪#‎Iran‬.
- Officials should know that only way to counter the brazen enemy is will power and avoiding inaction; they should show Iran's grandeur in talks.

Key points of Ayatollah Khamenei's speech made at a ceremony for the demise anniversary of Imam Khomeini:
- Abrahamic religions recognize that somebody will save the world from oppression; this great person is known as “Mahdi” in all Islamic denominations.
- Imam #Khomeini is symbol of a movement started by Iranians that changed their history. He is founder of a political and social school of thought.
- Imam Khomeini did two great jobs; overthrowing the oppressive hereditary monarchy and the other was to create an establishment based on #Islam.
- Insatiable appetite of global arrogance has never ceased to covet #Iran which is a great and rich country located at a critical crossroads.
- World hypocrite powers will retreat only if you, the Iranian nation, gain such a power and achieve such a progress that cut off their hopes.
- There are secular and regressive Islam in the Muslim world and both of them are under the auspices of world bullying powers and the US.
- Islam of #ISIS and on the other hand an Islam which is indifferent toward #Zionism and US and follow them are cut from the same cloth.
- Ronald Reagan who was a powerful man wrote to Imam Khomeini and sent his men but Imam Khomeini was indifferent and ignored his promise.
- Currently, in various issues we see objectively that it’s impossible to trust the promise of arrogants and speech they make in private meetings.
- The term “Great Satan” for US was coined by Imam Khomeini; when you consider somebody or an entity as Satan then it’s clear how you should behave.
- We are opposed to brutal acts of ISIS in Iraq and Syria as much as the oppressive behavior of Federal police of the US; they’re all the same.
- A veteran US diplomat said that Takfiris don’t matter to us.What is important for us is Iran.Because Iran is trying to build a civilization.
- That Sunni school which is supported by US and that Shia school that London introduces are both brothers of Satan and are agents of arrogants.
- We oppose siege of #Gaza as much as bombing of innocent Yemenis and crack down of Bahrainis and US drone attacks on people of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Ayatollah Khamenei in a meeting with participants of International #Quran Competitions:
- We shouldn’t let Jahiliyyah impose itself on our lives; today #Islam suffers from ignorant establishments. Quran wants to remove such impositions.
- The more we resisted, the more we became powerful and gained more hope towards the future; this is the prescription that heals the Muslim world.
- Any voices that rise to create discord among Muslims are in favor of the enemy, whether they know it or not. 
- Today officials in some Islamic countries are suffering from illusion and can’t distinguish friend from enemy; these countries will face loss.

Ayatollah Khamenei in a meeting  with organizers of a congress commemorating Muslim Kurdish #Peshmerga martyrs:

- There were many brave and faithful brothers at the Kurdish region who did not spare any efforts for victory of Revolution.
- The best among Kurdish brothers were the youth who joined the Peshmerga #Kurds and went to battlefields of Saddam’s war on #Iran.
- For 2 reasons enemy focused on Kurdish region: ethnicity & religion. But they failed to make that region insecure.
-   Unlike in other countries, the enemies cannot use the Kurdish factor to create discord in Iran.
- Enemies focused on Shia-Sunni issue too; they tried to spark fanaticism both within Shias & Sunnis.
-   We should all be careful and prevent the plot for sowing discord between Shia and Sunni to have its results.
- They passed a bill at the US congress on the pretext of supporting Sunni Arab Iraqis! Do they really like Sunnis?! They are against anything which bears a sign of Islam; Sunni or Shia don’t  make a difference to them.

The best sandwiches you can eat not only in Cambridge but in the entire Massachusetts. The price is unbelievably low while the quality is high as well as the taste. Try it one time and you will drive miles every week to eat there, like me!
