Here an email sent by an iranian friend. I thought it was worth publishing.

I am neither a terrorist nor a wife beater, I don’t live in a tent and in
desert and camels are not our ways of transportation.
I speak Farsi, not Arabic.

Iran is pronounced “EERAUN” and not “I – ran” (it’s not track & field)
News flash: Iran and Iraq are two different countries; Middle East is a
region and NOT a continent.
Belly dancers are NOT strippers (there is no sex in the Champaign room);
Anyway, belly dancing is an Arabic dance, it never came from Iran .
Each time you play a game of chess to improve your intellect, keep in
mind that it was Persians who gave you your game.
Iranian women are just as outspoken (if not more) and liberal as the
European (western) women.
And what the hell is “soccer”?? We also call it Football like every one else
in the word (except Americans).
Iran is the first country on earth to have a lion (male) and a sun
(female) for its symbol; and the colors red, white, and green for a flag.
A beautiful country run by the wrong people, but still is the best part of
 Middle East .
Allow me to introduce myself:
Iranian Peace society
