Come, Come To Iran! Our Board of Tourism Welcomes You!

From The Age:

    Iran is offering money to travel agents who can lure certain types of tourists, and the rate is double for bringing European and US travellers [sic].

    "Iran's tourism department will pay $US20 ($A26) for every American or European tourist that travel agents can bring," Mohammad Sharif Malekzadeh, deputy director of the Tourism and Cultural Heritage Organisation, said.

    His statement specified a $US10 payment for luring Asians.

"Luring Asians"...LURING? "Lure certain types of tourists"? Um, I'm not so sure that using the word "luring" in the context of "tourism" is a good idea.

Wait, I take that back....$20 Bucks! I'm sold, aren't you?!?
