Iran:Ignorance and racism in Iranian chatrooms

Iranian Truth writes you will find more prejudice, ignorance and racism in Iranian chartrooms, like activistchat.com, than anywhere else. And yet it is perfectly permissible to be anti-Islamic, despite the fact that we all agree that it is absolutely horrendous to be anti-Semitic, anti-Bahai, or anti-Christian. One way of countering this problem is by realizing that the Iranian government is not only unrepresentative, but cannot be Islamic. Rather, that the Iranian government uses false precepts in order to justify its monopolistic hold on power.
