Iran Quizzes & Trivia

This quiz attempts to educate those that wrongly think Iran is a nation of people who want nothing more than to destroy the people of Israel (the Jews) and the people of the United States of America (pick a religion, if you must). It also gives a few valuable facts about Iran, and her people, that the " faux news" networks don't seem to be privy to or that their corporate overlords won't let them reveal. Who knows. . . You might even learn a thing or two.
