Hmm.. RE "The 'moral depravity' comment at the end is a cheap shot," Sex is universal, but looking it up as a foreign word on the Internet is not universal.
I admit that it is not directly relevant to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, or does it? It would have nothing to do with the Israel-Arab conflict if it didn't have to do with Arabs and with Iran, a country whose leader has vowed to destroy Israel.
I would not build any great theories on these data, but it is interesting nonetheless. And amusing. Anything about sex is amusing, no?

Interesting article. Thailand, touted as the world 'sex capital' figures nowhere, and India getting atleast a bronze medal in all categories! not good. here its usually a younger age group which spends time with computers and internet. that means its worse.
But it could also mean that the average guys in Iran think more of sex than jihad, which is much healthier.

I think Ami is trying to show the hypocrisy of the governments. As a US gay man, I must admit that I delight when the Religious Right in this country shows itself to be engaging in the same behavior it condemns. But I do admit that it has little to do with the Israeli/Palestinian conflict....

Given how many young people are in Iran (demographically very different from our ageing populations), I'm not surprised youngsters are mischievously keying in words like sex, big deal. The 'moral depravity' comment at the end is a cheap shot, Ami. Sex is universal and the Iranians and Egyptians aren't any more pious or pure than the rest of us. OK, their governments may go on about moral deparivity, but so does the Moral Majority Christian Right in the US. And I think they are infinitely scarier.

Google's data are accurate. I've just tested it. Did a search on "hockey". Guess which country came first?
