That’s true, and they see themselves more as european than middle-eastern - and they love BMWs.

They are mad about Beemers. You are correct. And also expensive accessories like prestige luggage - I don’t even know the brands.

Wow, looking at these pictures, I guess I see it.

How do they feel about smoking?

As in "Tehran is about to be one large smoking hole in the ground".

Cause if they don't kill the mullahs and end their pursuit of nuclear weapons, making fun about Bibi's blue jeans comment is going to be the least of their issues.

If they think Israel is going to let them get off the first shot with a nuke, they must be COMPLETELY F*CKING STUPID, and perhaps they need to have their gene pool removed from the planet.

Kill all Jews and annihilate Israel!' Iran's Ayatollah lays out legal and religious justification for attack

The iranian leaders long ago publicly announced they are willing to lose a good percentage of their population if it means wiping out Israel. Have the chattering class in Iran figured out that Israel's calculation says NO ISRAELIS WILL DIE but Iran will either be smothered in one large glass parking lot, and/or with EMPs will be literally transported back to the 8th century?

Do they think THATS AS FUNNY as Bibi making comments about jeans?

Dumb comment but Bibi is right on with his assessments.

He is the only leader in the West speaking the truth. Jeans, shmeans, so what? What counts is that Iran is close to the bomb and Bibi is Churchill in 1938, offering dire warnings while nobody is listening...

Obama may prevent Israel from stopping Iran and that might mean Israel will take a first hit - just as planned by Obama. This is aprt of his Muslim outreach and limp-soft Power concept.

They should have been bombed 3 years ago. Now it may be too late.

No kidding he is right. So, whose comment was dumb? You weren’t at all clear about that.

Tut! Tut! You posted the wrong link. Here we are.

More seriously ... Have the chattering class in Iran figured out that Israel's calculation says NO ISRAELIS WILL DIE but Iran will either be smothered in one large glass parking lot ...

No one chatters more than the chattering classes of Iran. They so much enjoy a controversy like this "blue jeans" comment, that it would be cruel to deprive them of it. I think there was a lot of worry about an Israeli strike back in 2004-2006, but the perceptions are that the threat has receeded. Fears of an immenent war do not seem to be so common now.
