in response to reader comment: You are right--there are moderate Muslims.

I think this comment is very well said. I have an iranian friend who would describe himself, under duress, as a moslem; but he also says that his country was once a great country - some 1500 or so years ago, before the advent of islam! this would consititute being nominal, one thinks

I recently read a book by a man named reza safa, a former insider. His thesis is that islam is a bloody ferocious religion that thrives on being attacked, and therefore that most military action is counter-productive. He also says that islam in iran is likely to implode if left alone, in great part due to a substantial spontaneous increase in that which islam most fears and opposes, biblical faith - thousands upon thousands of iranians become followers of Christ
