Another Iranian, making us all proud...

The credit goes to this man's determination for success, and the society in which he lives, that embraces him and rewards him for his abilities and efforts, regardless of the man's national origin.

 Even in Germany, where racism is supposed to be everywhere, I know of many head-of-department (HoechArtz) doctors who are of Iranian nationality. 

 Are qualified professionals treated the same in our beloved homeland of Iran? I have no idea.

 Has anyone seen or heard an Indian national, an Afghan, or a Pakistani be appointed to such position? Is it because there has never been one qualified for the post, or we just can't allow it? 

I am only wondering...
