The Iranian ambassador to the UN had just finished giving a speech and walked out into the lobby where he met the United States ambassador, John Bolton.
They exchanged pleasantries and as they walked the Iranian said, "You know I have a question about something I have seen in America."
Ambassador Bolton said, "Well anything I can do to help you, I will."
The Iranian whispered, "My son watches this show 'Star Trek' and in it there is Chekhov who is Russian, Scotty who is Scottish, and Sulu who is Japanese, but no Iranians. My son is very upset and doesn't understand why there aren't any Arabs or Muslims on Star Trek."
Bolton laughed, leaned toward the Iranian ambassador and whispered back, "It's because it takes place in the future."
