Expert: Iran's birthrate is as low as Nazi Germany's, and anti-Semitism is the common factor

I just had a fascinating conversation with one of my favourite writers: David P. Goldman, author of How Civilizations Die.

I was surprised when Goldman told me that Iran's birthrate has been plummeting (and that its STD rates are staggeringly high.)

"Persia is soon to be an ex-nation," he says.

Iran is in a demographic decline, but, he adds, getting rid of Iran's theocratic regime might help the country turn itself around in time.

Otherwise, in 30 years, the country will "collapse because a third of their people will be over the age of 60."

Goldman says: When Iran does "things that look nuts to us, remember: they're staring into an abyss" and "facing an existential crisis."

He points out that Iran's birthrate is as low as Nazi Germany's, and that that's no coincidence.

Both countries were and are explicitly anti-Semitic and supremacist, and panic-stricken about their future and place in the world power structure.

In Iran's case, the existence of a flourishing Israel makes a mockery of their sense of Muslim superiority, and they can't cope with the shame of this cognitive dissonance.

Yet Iran's Muslim identity has no genuine foundation, says Goldman, who quips that after Iran's theocracy collapses, "We'll find out that there were no more Muslims in Iran than their were communists in Russia in 1989."

Iran will become extinct in a very short time. The production of Nuclear Weapons will ensure this. The Big Bang theory, al la Israel. It will look good on them.

“He points out that Iran’s birthrate is as low as Nazi Germany’s, and that that’s no coincidence.”

Goldman cites that Iran’s birth rate is on par with Western Europe, and it is, along with North America and much of the developed world. Is that also not a coincidence? Are developed nations also “soon to be ex-nations”? Or could it be that the quality of life is precipitating a decline in birth rate just as it did in the developed world? Bahrain, Qatar, Tunisia, Lebanon, and other Middle Eastern countries have also been experiencing a similar decline over a similar time frame. Can the same link Goldman makes be made in those countries too?!ctype=l&strail=false&bcs=d&nselm=h&met_y=sp_dyn_tfrt_in&scale_y=lin&ind_y=false&rdim=region&idim=country:CAN:USA:IRN:AUS:FRA:GBR:DEU:FIN:DNK:BEL:AUT:BHR:LBN:QAT:KOR:JPN:NZL&ifdim=region&tstart=-296769600000&tend=1375761600000&hl=en_US&dl=en&ind=false
