Adrian, I don't think that the Iranians in government, or Islamists
anywhere, care about the reality of threats. They are applying their
religion as they were taught and while we regard some of those things as
irrational, they don't care. It's about religion. It's about tradition.
It's about honor and all that.
To repeat a post of some while ago: a poll of the Iranian citizens showed
that 2/3 of them thought a government should be secular.
