The Israeli lobby and their rightwing stooges in governments in North America keep feeding us images of a nuclear-armed, Dark Ages Iran, steeped in Sharia law and bloodlust. Look at this graph. It's from the World Bank. It concerns backward Iran. Something is up there. From the time the Iranian people turfed out the Shah to today it has risen from just over 40 per cent to just under 100 per cent today. What have those dastardly Mullahs been up to? Care to guess?
Well, this graph depicts female, 15-24, literacy rates in Iran over the past four decades since the country regained independence. Today 60 per cent of university students in Iran are female. Dwell on that for a minute and then tell me that Iran is a country driven by Islamist fanatics out to set the world on fire.
