"Those who want Sharia law are not the majority of Iranians. I'd like to talk about those Iranians who fight the Sharia law in Iran. There is an Iranian lady working in Canada against Sharia Law Courts there too! Good enough for me. I am sure you have been following activities taking place in Iran much closer then many of us. I have lots of web sites to access, most of the stuff you and others have shared at this site, but due to time constraints do not keep up with things. I will ask you this, and please be assured it is not to put you on the spot. Do you have a solid reference that shows clearly what percentage of peoples are for the current regieme, do not care who is in power, want secularism, want at all costs Islam not to have any bearing on personal and government level decision making for the people of Iran? Again, don't kill yourself trying to find a appropriate URL line etc., if it is not readily available, simply say to much trouble to find. I am not trying to put you on the spot. And if you cannot produce such a %, that does not imply you lack the info, just that it is not so easy to get at on the fly. I have gone down that course in the past, and recognize good info is not always easily obtainable on the fly.

It is really hard, as you said, to produce such a number!

But I can tell that more than 90% of people in Iran do not want this type of government but it doesnt mean that all of them are also ready to kill themselves to get rid of the Mullahs

But this regime in Iran is not popular any more

That is for sure

To trust what I said, just chat with Iranians in Yahoo chat rooms and you will find people disagreeing with the regime of Iran

90% are unhappy with the system of governance in Iran but some want reform from within, some want a big change, some want American invasion

Ideas vary there!

I think my friends can correct me if I am wrong
