A brand new modern shopping mall in Isfahan

A lot of people in the United States and Europe haven't an accurate idea of what everyday life is like in the Islamic Republic of Iran; this being especially true of the expatriate class most of which have not seen the country in decades. For them, here is a pictorial of the newly opened shopping mall at the Isfahan City Center:

Iran has gone forward quite alot and made improvements since the last time i was there in 1998. I'm amazed to say the least. You just could not envision Iran being what it is today not that long ago, say in the late 90s. And going even further back to the Iran-Iraq, a time when almost all development in Iran literally came to a stand still. Even after the war had ended, for many years afterward, in the 1990s the Iranian economy was still feeling the effects of the very costly and bloody conflict. Now one can see that they have taken a tremendous leap over the last decade and they keep getting better going into the future. I'm really happy for the people living there. I wish them success and continued prosperity.

And imagine how would Iran - Islamic Republic look like without discriminatory and deceitful sanctions, which are meant to prevent the Islamic Republic to show to the world that one doesn't have to use corrupted political systems of the West to develop a nation to the highest standards of economical developments...

That developments would give the Islamic Republic potential to turn into a world power and a role model for the other third - world countries...

The true goal sanctions, like the Supreme Leader pointed, is exhausting the Iranian Nation and separating the nation from the Islamic Republic.
(So it cannot happen, that other political system than the Western one, can achieve and be a role model for the countries of the world...

The country is way behind from Turkey,UAE,Qatar etc.Even the Turks come to build some of these malls.Iran used to be way ahead from those countries mentioned and now they look down on use and laugh.This country will never progress with these Moft Khors in power and the society will stay in Khorofot Badbakti va Felacat.

Why the hell is Pyruz getting a platform to spread his propaganda nonsense and untrue image of Iran? Why the need to show brand new shopping malls, when throughout Iran there are long queues for subsidized rice?

What the hell is your problem Mark? "Expatriate class"? I'm a "expatriate" class and visit the country on a regular bases and can tell you the country is a damn ruin.A few shiny shops don't make a country Mark. If it did you wouldn't have over seven million Iranians living abroad because of the intolerable social political situation in the country.You live in a make believe world spun by Rafsanjani's dollars.

Right now it is only temporary disguise...

Do not be nervous guys, maybe Mark is just playing the same way, like it was stated by president Uskowi last year under the certain article that (he says) "...I...just playing..."; to the best of my knowledge.

Not only are they no name brands but are expensive too!
Facts are people have no money to spend and mostly go window shopping hoping for better days.The hypocrite liar knows this but is paid by nasty Islamist occupying regime to show it in good light without the slightest of success.We recommend this Fanboy of the Islamist terrorist regime to look elsewhere for his subsistence and stop his usual Sisyphean of lies.

It's OK let them open these new malls because it only upset the bazzari.Don't forget malls belong to greedy mullahs.

Let's keep it real. The pace of civil construction in Iran is indeed a worthy success, despite the pathetic sanctions and western/Zionist economic pressure. Iranian economy is plugging along and in terms of development Iran can easily be classified as "second world" or closer or better than most second tier European nations, but without the public debt or social upheavel. It is easy for some self-consuming hateful people to condemn and criticize everything thing about Iran, but some truths can not be manipulated. Iran is progressing well in many areas and let not lose sight of that. It is great that Mark is posting positive achievements of Iran. Well done.

There is no denying it,Iran is certainly progressing well in many areas.Specially in the fields of drive by mobile hangings,fully mobile amputation machines,instant packaging and disposal of opponents etc etc etc.....
