Well, I know of some places where they offer Amex upgrades (americans get express upgrade to martyrdom).

Jackie Mason once said the Arabs loved his comedy so much they offered to fly him in, put him up in a fancy hotel, with the best restaurants, all expenses paid - including funeral expenses!

Go check out the Shaheed Monument, it's only a couple of miles east of the central Jumhuriya Bridge which is built over the Tigris River (Nehar Peras).

I actually would not be worried at all in Iran. Reports say that it safe and that they (the people) love Americans

Austrian flies to irbil, thats also in iraq, so *miles can be used

Lufthansa flies there as well as Turkish. Arbil is not really Iraq (Kurdistan) so I'd have no worries going there. Anyone in? I'd do a day trip

he mightve been, but guys like rick steves paint a very rosy picture. take a look at his iran special, where he appears to enjoy it very much there and many of the people he meets are indeed pro america (iirc)

Are these Kurds (didn't watch the video)? Kurds are supposed to be friendly with Israel and by extension, Jews.
