An Ayatollah’s Daughter Who Has Slipped Her Mental Traces

A story, told possibly a bit too breathlessly, of an Ayatollah’s daughter who has — it isn’t stated but you and I know — had her fill of Islam, and become familiar, living in the West, of a wider world, and as part of her self-enlightenment, has come to see that Persians and Jews, the odd men out in the Sunni Arab world, need not be at daggers drawn. But that, of course, depends on the Persians being more Persian, and less Muslim.
