Iran ( Persia)
Transcript of Iran ( Persia)
Every Day Life
Now a days in Iran, you would think that they would put an Embargo act on cars from how many of them are in the major cities. (??)
In Iran, they favor men over women and discriminate against women and dislike how they have a fair chance.
In Iranian food, you will see, most of the time, rice and meat in the dish as it is one of their most frequent in their food.
How is it Now
The threat of mass destruction and islamic terrorism have made everyday life in Iran different than our own, Iran has been shaped by years of war, decades of despotism, and almost 1,500 years of looking for peace in the teachings of the Prophet Mohammed
There is an embargo act preventing the import of cars into Iran so the civilians had to improvise and create their own cars out of what they could find.

Iran's economy is a mixture of ownership of oil, large enterprises, village agriculture, and small scale private trading.
45% of the governments budget comes from oil and natural gas revenues, 31% comes from taxes and fees.
In Iran, they most definitely do not treat people with equality
If you are not their religion, Sheitte Muslim, then you will be prosecuted and punished, even death could come to you.
The politics of Iran are presidential democracy and theocracy in a format of Synthetic politics that is guided by an Islamist ideology.
Theocracy is a system of government in which priests rule in the name of god or a god.
Today, the Twelver Shia branch of Islam is the official state religion and to which about 95% to 99% of Iranians officially are. Tensions between communities have intensified during power struggles, such as the Bahraini uprising, the Iraq War, and most recently the Syrian Civil War and in the formation of the self-styled Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and its advancement on Syria and Northern Iraq.
No. of people
The technology in Iran has escalated very quickly in the past 30 years making strides in Aerospace and cloning.
70% of the universities are woman.
How it was then
Back in the late BC and early AD era, Iran, or Persia, as it was called at the time, was a mighty empire and ruled central Asia all the way to the Balkans and north Africa. They were incredibly prosperous and were finally defeated by the Islams in 633 - 656
The differences in crime rates between Iran and Tuolumne County are:
How the people are treated
Women (primary source)
They were forced to wear the hijab which covered their hair and body.
If they were caught disobeying the law (wearing makeup, walking with someone other than their husband or relatives), they would be subjected to lashing and imprisonment.
Thousands of innocent girls are thrown into prison cells, meant to fit only a few, with sometimes 30 other women.
Every few days names are called out over the loudspeakers
If their names are called, then they are being called for their execution
If the women were called to their execution, the guards would rape them so that they are no longer virgins, and therefore, due to "hardline Islamic beliefs, could no longer go to heaven."
Those not called were lined up and lashed. Many fainted, not knowing what the guards do to their unconscious bodies.
"Women who abide completely by the rules of the clerics are not immune to their cruelty. Many women – sometimes as young as 15 – have been stoned to death on bogus charges of adultery,"
Men are less discriminated against than women.
There are less reports of men being stoned for sex outside of marriage than women.
Muslim men can marry women from other religions; women cannot marry a non-Muslim man unless he converts to Islamic.
There is no limitation to how many wives a man has in Iran.
Why There Is Gender Inequality
In the late 19th & early 20th centuries, education was believed to be a pillar of freedom to women.
"In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries the belief that education was a pillar of freedom began to gain popularity among Iranian women. Their efforts to secure an equal place with men in the nation’s educational institutions received support from a number of women writers and poets in the form of protests and petitions. The twentieth century, however, witnessed the destruction of most of Iranian women’s hopes and quests. Different Iranian governments enacted a series of important laws and regulations touching on “women’s issues” without allowing any input from women."
