The scandalous Ahmadinejad

The behaviour of Ahmadinejad and Islamic regime about women, the obligation to dress “Islamic code” or workers’ protest or even the brutal beating of some students by his supporters (more here) has not caused any scandal in Iran. The real cause of the scandal has been this photo:
In it Ahmadinejad is kissing the gloved hand of his own teacher from primary school. A woman in her 70’s.

Iranian blogger Kamangir writes that the fact that she was wearing gloves, proves that it was something that was not “a surprise for him”, as he claimed, but rather something staged.

Last news: Off with their breasts!!

One shopkeeper selling evening dresses told us the moral police had ordered him to saw off the breasts of his mannequins because they were too revealing.He said he wasn’t the only shop to receive this strange instruction.

The crackdown has also included young men dressed Western-style.

It is a pity Iranian FM Mouttaki did not behave like Ahmadinejad. You see this woman on the left? Well, she was wearing a fashion model with a low neckline. The minister could not stand it:

Durante una cena para diplomáticos la noche del jueves, la delegación iraní, encabezada por su ministro de Exteriores, Manuchehr Mottaki, abandonó de forma súbita la sala con la excusa de que una violinista que amenizaba la velada vestía de manera inapropiada.

During a dinner for diplomats on Thursday night, the Iranian delegtion, abandoned it abruptly because of the low neckline a violinist was wearing: she was wearing inapropriately“.

Other news:

“Mass purges” at Iranian Universities. Huge cost of Iranian brain drain. Khatami at the Vatican (hein?? yes, he is even going to speak at a two-day seminar at the Gregorian University – the pontifical university – on peace in Islam and the Christian world, ejem…).

Iranian trainers working in Gaza.

Iran deports thousands of Afghans in last 10 days.

Iran says it has collected 50,000 Afghans for deportation, and argues it is the right of every country to send home illegal workers.

Mr Pour-Mohammadi, Iranian Interior Minister, denied that families had been divided in the deportation process and said Iran had allowed 4,000 of the Afghans they had rounded up to remain because of problems they faced.

Iran is estimated to have up to one and a half million illegal Afghan workers who do the most dangerous and dirty jobs with little legal protection.
There are also just under a million registered refugees.
Tehran says some 300,000 of those refugees will be eligible to apply for work visas to return to Iran, if they first go back to Afghanistan.

Pro-illegal immirants are going to say something? Or as it is not some Western-imperialistic-bloody-blablablahhh are going to remain silent?
