Iranian countdown for dummies

This video shows why Iranians can not count: after praising Allah (fsih) they started the countdown 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and FIRE.....but nothing happened. Then some bla bla, and the countdown goes on, reverse: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8...and suddenly the racket goes away...
'What goes up must goes down', anyone seen the racket?

I never had so much faith in Flying Carpets of Persia, do we have to be scared for their unguided missiles....)

An example - French State council refuses woman French nationality

For the first time, the French State council refused to give a person of Morroc descent, French citizen ship, based upon the fact that 'religious matters interfere'; Pour la première fois en France, le Conseil d'Etat a pris en compte le niveau de pratique religieuse pour se prononcer sur la capacité d'assimilation d'une personne étrangère.

Eight years ago she moved from Morocco to France where she married another Morroc immigrant. He ordered her to wear a burqa, and she didn't resist and refused to integrate in the French society.
The French State council ruled that her lifestyle contradicts the French republic norms and values: "une pratique radicale de la religion incompatible avec les valeurs essentielles de la communauté française".

Their two children have the French nationality, she not. Appeal is not possible: bravo!
But in fact she is a ticking time bomb. And that's scary.
