    Good job students! Recently, your President has asked for you to force your excellent Professors to resign and be replaced with hard line religeous instructors. Is this what you really want? Do you want your fellow students to be taught what your religeous based view government wants you to learn?

    Stand up and say NO! Stand up for your rights! Or do you not have any such rights? In my country, I have the right to tell my President he stinks. In fact, I can tell any elected official he or she stinks. Can you do that? I can refuse to pray or I can pray whenever I want to. Can you? I can wear whatever style of clothing I choose to. Can you?

    Your country, Iran, is being suppressed by your elected and forced upon government. You all should really force the Iatolla guy to move aside and let the citizens of your country choose your destination and civil rights. Doing so would not make God unhappy with you.

    Never forget, GOD loves you and suppression was never his plan.
