Iran Facts

Iran has one of the largest Jewish populations in the world, and the second-largest in the Middle East behind Israel.

Jews are protected by the Iranian constitution, and are guaranteed seats in the Iranian parliament.

The CIA admits that the U.S. overthrew the moderate, suit-and-tie-wearing, Democratically-elected prime minister of Iran in 1953.  He was overthrown because he had nationalized Iran’s oil, which had previously been controlled by BP and other Western oil companies.   As part of that action, the CIA admits that it hired Iranians to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its prime minister.

Well-known economist Nouriel Roubini says that attacking Iran would lead to global recession.  The IMF says that Iran cutting off oil supplies could raise crude prices 30%.  War with Iran would kill the American economy.

China and Russia have warned that attacking Iran could lead to World War III

  3. Ummm Irans oil used to be owned by BP and Russia… which is why british and russian soldiers blocked off Iranians from the oil fields but then signed a super awesome treaty and left. There were no americans there if thats what you mean by “western” oil companies
