Iran: Challenging Stereotypes of an so-called Islamic Society

when the West refers to an Islamic society, it implies a society in which Islamic principles and regulations are deeply internalized and inherent to its people. On the contrary, we contend that Islam has been imposed upon the people of Iran through a political process involving prisons, massacres, arrests, and the presence of Hezbollah henchmen. Iran cannot be classified as an Islamic society because it was not one prior to their arrival. Moreover, the people have resisted and defended themselves against such impositions.
