Iran: A mystery to many

Mohammad Mosaddegh   (Public Domain) 
Opinions about Iran run rampant these days, but how much solid information is supporting these viewpoints?

The Christian Science Monitor set about to ease this dilemma by offering a ten-question quiz titled “How much do you know about Iran?”

This simple quiz will indicate just how much (or little) knowledge an individual has about Iran.  These test questions are, of course, just starting points.  Each can
then lead to a more detailed exploration of Iranian history and culture.

For those who see Iran as the enemy, and nothing but the enemy, it is wise to “Know thy enemy.”

For those who see Iran as a potential friend, then “Knowledge is power” for accomplishing that aim.

At the very least, quiz-takers might become motivated to learn the difference between a Sunni and a Shiite Muslim.  That, in itself, would also be a great beginning.
