Forbes mag names Islamic Republic of Iran “cool” travel destination for 2017, says visitors must obey Sharia

“Forbes Magazine is promoting Iran as one of ‘The 10 Coolest Places to Go in 2017’, based on a review by Melissa Biggs Bradley, founder of the travel website Indagare…’Visitors to Iran understand that they must adapt to Sharia law and customs, under which alcohol is strictly forbidden and women must wear hijabs…..’”

Forbes forgot to mention a few more of Iran’s attractions: acid attacks on women to enforce Sharia dress codes; the devaluation of a woman’s life, such that if she dies accidentally, her family will receive only half the legal compensation than given for a man; the devaluation also of a woman’s testimony in court, as worth half that of a man (as per Qur’an 2:282); public lashings for certain offences and death by stoning for women convicted of adultery; executions at a rate of over 800 per year, mostly for drug offenses; the honor killing of women, while the regime looks the other way; and heavy fines and jail sentences for women who do not wear the hijab. Also, if you happen to be a journalist and/or a peace activist, or have done anything whatsoever to upset the regime, you may be detained at the airport and jailed in Evin Prison on trumped-up charges. There, electrocution, brutal beatings, rape and drug-induced confessions and hangings are common.

Indagare’s Biggs Bradley – a woman to boot – also “credited the nuclear deal brokered by the Obama administration and others in the West for the increase in tourism in Iran.”

Shame on Forbes in featuring this advertisement for tourism in Iran, and for including in it praise of the nuclear deal: Obama took advantage of this pact to released at least $100 billion to Iran, which it is using to finance jihad terrorism.
