Since 1979 the Islamic Republic of Iran has been represented in the western media as the greatest danger to world peace.
Iran has been portrayed as the enemy of Humanity and Freedom.
The U.S. Department of State, The UK Goverment and the Forign Ministries of their western allies regularly warn citizens not to take any trip to the axis of evil.
„If you choose to travel to Iran against this advice you are strongly advised to limit your stay to the minimum period possible.
There is a high risk that you may be arbitrarily detained in Iran.
Any behaviour, no matter how innocent, that does not have an obvious explanation can put you at risk.
Your hotel rooms and telephones may be monitored, and personal possessions in hotel rooms may be searched.
Taking a photograph in improper places could result in serious criminal charges, which carries the death penalty.“
