    In Iran,there is no law against Jews (in general), so you can take part in the competition just as any other Russian guy can. On the other hand, Iran does not recognize Israel. Therefore the Israeli participants will not be able to get to Tehran. It's not a matter of religion, It's a matter of nationality.

    :)) hmm, look at Tehran Jewish Committee or Dr. Ciamak Morsadegh's homepage(Jewish representative in the Iranian Parliament). i want just mention that Jews live in Iran like other religions. Yousef Abad synagogue (in Tehran):

    Therefore there is no matter.

        Of course men can participate too. In Persian "Bayan" means expressing and saying and gender of participants is not important.

                  I think I have a gentlemen's agreement with administration not to discuss that incident, as it makes no sense.

                  If you know that I'm using more than one account now (e.g., Rubanenko is my second account), you may report this to administration (they will laugh).

                  You act like a woman. When you are asked a question you should answer it, not to pretend an idiot and mention different things that we are not talking about.

                  And you are talking about gentlemen's agreements?! Funny, really funny...

                  Seems that you act like a troll. You may read the 3699 blog entry carefully and see that I was not even accused in using more than one account while CFBR 100. Moreover, this is meaningless in Codeforces rounds format.
