    And what's more scary is that it's nowhere to be found on CNN or Fox's websites. I did find an article about it in The Age, though.

    I haven't heard anything about it over here in the UK either. This is truly frightening - the parallels are just too familiar.

    Iran must feel it has largesse to do as it damn well pleases!

    Russia, China, North Korea, and the U.N. are on their side.

    If I were a Jew or Chrtistian living In Iran now I'd be getting the hell out of dodge FAST!!!!!
    I think the days of the rest of the world envisionsing some inside coup from Iran's youth happening have sailed into the sunset.

    Think it might be time for religions other than Islam to get the hell out of there?

    I have a friend who's a Persian Jew (descended from the exiles mentioned in the book of Daniel). Her family had quite a good life there, but when the Ayatollah started gaining power, they packed up their most valuable possessions (mostly rugs) and fled, not just from Iran, but all the way over here. It's happening again.

    Yes it is, it was done 'recently' before. The following topic, along with the then 'threats' to blow up the Buddha carvings, had my 7th grade class mobilize a petition drive at our school and send it to Colin Powell, the then new Secretary of State. Note the date. We sent the petition within 3 days of the report, got a letter back from him saying that the situation was being looked into.

    They were a few of the new 8th graders in the room with me, before school, when the initial report of WTC being hit. They knew immediately, truly even before myself that it was Bin Laden:
