I would like to respond to the article entitled “The Islamic Republic of Iran: Myth and reality” by Hassan Al-Haifi. I have never, ever read a more biased article in my lifetime (I'm 64). And possibly never will. As an Editor is it not your professional duty to render an article fiction)if in fact that is true. “A deafening silence” and “a mournful optimist” are examples of)pointedly foolish contradictory expressions (terms), that are known as oxymorons. Mr. Al-Haifi has now added a new one: “Iranian Democracy.”
It would appear this gentleman has gotten off his medication and needs to break back in the hospital from whence he came.
