February 10, 2017. What I wrote at the Wall Street Journal about Iranians who love Americans.

"The ruling by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday bars the administration from enforcing its 90-day ban on travelers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, pending the outcome of a lawsuit filed by Washington state and Minnesota."
I agree with the president. Keeping these people out is the best possible way to keep America safe. I expect with some modifications he will eventually get his way.
The list of countries include Iran. I have a big problem with the Iranian government but I like the Iranians. I play chess with them online almost every day. About 3 years ago I watched a TV program about an American who travelled to Iran. He was surprised to find out most Iranians love Americans and he was welcomed in their homes. Today I found some more information that confirms what the traveler said. It's very interesting. 2 links:

A comment someone else wrote:
"Yes, there is a lot of pro American sentiment in Iran among the young. They are living under the yoke of the Mullahs and yearn for freedom. There was a pro American demonstration in the streets of Tehran during the Bush Administration of about 250,000 people following a soccer game. When we think about Iran we need to separate the people from the theocracy."
