This evening I had my first coment on this blog. It came from an Iranian blog called Bereftd, never seen before. Thank you, unknown fighter for more rights in this country.

Whenever I look at an Iranian blog, I don't know what to think. A minority is fighting for human rights, democracy and thus for the rule of law. But I feel the vast majority of the people there are deeply immersed in their religion, hundreds of years away from us here in the West.

And naturally, the politicians there - same as here - are thrifty enough to take advantage of this situation. What to say about a politician who is endlessly talking about God? I suppose it's nothing but an opportunistic attitude - maybe they are atheists at heart, who knows. Our politicians talk always about our jobless people and the poor and the measures they would take in case they are voted into office............
