I went to Iowa State University here in the USA during the late '70s. Persians were fairly common there at that time. I got to know some of them that lived in the same dorm "house" as I did. Now that I think about it, I did not notice the outward practice of Islam with them. In fact I knew almost nothing about Islam and didn't even think about it at that time. I remember a good looking Persian coed with long black hair wearing jeans, but it was mostly men. Then came the Revolution…..
