    A last gasp attempt of the old hardliners to keep the population under control and retain power. Unfortunately for them, the march of time is unstoppable, and today's youth are tomorrow's leaders.

    I guess you are pointing to the ignorance era of the Arabs before Islam, and you are confusing Arabs with Islam, or trying to hide criticism of Islam by the word Arabs, who before Islam were very deviant, they liked wine an women to the point of the most deviant behavior, Islam regulated that for the betterment of societies, by implementing social values.
    As you know, Islam does not forbid sex, or having fun, but it puts it in a safe context, namely marriage. Because controlling ones own instincts outside of any social frame have proved to be impossible, since -mostly- sex is an animal instinct, and male and female youth is full of hormones with attractive characteristics for each other, when you put them together it leads to some uncontrollable behavior, and some bad consequences afterwards.
    You can read about teenage pregnancies all over the western world, and see how much sufferings those teens go through, apart from the consequences on the newly born for the rest of their lives. that is only one of the many unwarranted social consequences that Islam wants to avoid. Not speaking about Alcohol abuse and its known bad consequences on individuals and societies.
    I am a moderate Muslim, and, I am not giving you a morality lesson, or try to approve or disprove the Iranian move on the coffee shops. But even here in Canada, if someone sells cigarettes to a less than 18 years old person, he gets fined, 2 or 3 times, more than that and his commerce is shut down.
    Are the Arabs (Muslims) responsible for that?

    Coffee shops are popular hangout for revolutionaries in many countries. Most authoritarian regimes will not like what is being discussed there.

    I just made some black tea with mint and saffron. Too bad I didn't have any rock sugar. Still, it was great.

    Straight black coffee is disgusting, specially the way North Americans drink it. People out here drink half a liter of straight black coffee in one go. It's disgusting. But a nicely made Latte is out of this world.

    btw since we're on the subject, has anybody tried Kashmiri Chai? Is that even a thing? I had one a while ago and I can't wait to go back to that place. I had no idea what it was when I ordered it, but it was some sort of a tea latte with pistachios, rose flower and I'm guessing cinnamon. What a beauty that was.

    apparently plain coffee is good for you... not the one with milk and sugar.
    I drank kashmiri chai (in kashmir), its different, they drink in a big glass and chai is light pink in color. Also they usually add salt not sugar.
