Signals from Tehran

"The iltiqatis believe that while they and their own children should live a largely Westernized life, the masses should continue stewing in the juice of poverty and ignorance in the name of religion. The iltiqati sends his own children to Europe or America to study but insists that the children of the masses attend Qur’anic school and be protected against 'Western corruption'. You would be surprised how many children of the grandees of the Islamic Republic, including Rafsanjani, have been sent to the West for education."
