Who are the real Iranians?

While there is no doubt that Iran under the mad mullahs and Ahmandinejad pose the biggest threat to world peace (and are dedicted to the destruction of Israel) there are definitely conflicting views about what the Iranian people genuinely believe. Michael Totten's report suggests there is room for cautious optimisim. But this report from MEMRI suggests otherwise. The problem seems to be that, even if the educated the Iranians despise their regime, they have no means to stop it (democratically or otherwise) - and in any case the educated Iranians are a minority.
