The reason that AF can't be sold in Iran is a trademark battle between the Al Fakher Trading Company and an Iranian company that makes a moassel called Fakhur. The dispute is not a religious one. However, several of the Gulf states are American puppets and naturally they are not happy with the Islamic Republic. For the most part I think that my fellow Occidentals over state sectarian issues in the Middle East.
