Finding things to post about the fanatical idiots who run Iran is like shooting fish in a barrel. Now, according to the Telegraph,, a national crackdown on opposition sympathisers would be extended to women who have been deemed to be violating the spirit of Islamic laws.
Senior Tehran police officer Brigadier Hossien Sajedinia said “women, and men, who defy our Islamic values. In some areas of north Tehran we can see many suntanned women and young girls who look like walking mannequins. We are not going to tolerate this situation and will first warn those found in this manner and then arrest and imprison them."
The announcement came shortly after Ayatollah Kazim Sadighi, a leading cleric,
warned that women who dressed immodestly disturbed young men and the consequent agitation caused earthquakes. Another preacher warned Tehran's citizens to flee before the inevitable punishment for flagrant behaviour was visited on the city.
"Go on the streets and repent for your sins," Ayatollah Aziz Khoshvaqt, one of the country's highest clerics, told worshippers during a recent sermon in northern Tehran. "A holy torment is upon us. Leave town."
Ach as ever the real blight on Iran is the rabble of misogynistic religious fanatics. Sustained repression over recent months has crushed protests but I am sure that it is only for now (causing scum like George Galloway and Seumas Milne to cum in their Stalinist pants)). The protestors’ time will come, that is certain.
