you are a tolerant nation????!!!!

More or less, yes. There are many nations that have levels of tolerance below ours, including some in developed Europe.

tolerant of what???? the ones who agree with your and your rules, beliefs and ideas…. while trying to push them down the throat of people and societies that really, really do not want them…. When was the last time that you guys said “hey… that place wants to play by it’s own rules, follow it’s own traditions and laws- and we should not mess with their own choices?”

You want to talk PEOPLE or POLITICS?

Yes, our government has a tendency to stick our noses in where it’s not wanted, militarily and economically. Many of us would just as soon leave well enough alone; and what happens at the government level does not imply that it happens at the individual level.

Remind me again, how many mosques were fire-bombed, how many Muslims ( both men and women) attacked on the streets ? How many hate-crimes against homosexuals, people of color or another religion are there on weekly or daily bases?????

Not too many, if you take into account the fact that we have 320M people over here. On a per-capita basis, things like antisemitic attacks are much higher in Europe and other places.

No, it is not about you living in a “tolerant nation” ….. it is simply about the fact that attacking everything that has to do with Islam ( even if you do not understand anything about it….) — since that is the easy target which would give you the most reads…. and the most pats on the back.

Well, I’m Muslim, so I think I know something about it.

And maybe some insane jew did not throw acid in someones face… but tell me, how does the Jewish society treat the women who refuse to follow the norm?

Most Jews in the US have no norm. There are relatively small pockets of orthodox jews, most in NYC and Baltimore, where I suppose they ostracize nonconformists. That’s generally referred to as “freedom”.

But, we’re talking social group “rules”, here, not governmental authoritarian rules. Very different.

And, tell me again, how can you relate to the women in Iran???!!!! What do you know about them, their country or their culture???? How many Iranians do you even know?

Several.

Again, have you ever been there?

Personally, no. I do go to Turkey quite a bit.

Did you even know that that particular country has the highest percentage of women in Universities and colleges…. yes very, very few cases of campus rape or sexual assaults, even harassment ( the fact that they execute people for rape, helps a lot in prevention…) — Most of them have the educational and life choices western women can only dream of- and it is all paid for by the state….

Yes, I do know all that. What’s your point? That Iran is heaven-on-earth for women, and since it’s perfect, it can’t take any criticism?
