Scandal Iran - Ahmadinejad Touches Woman

(Tehran, Iran) Scandalously, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was photographed stooping to touch the hand of a former female teacher. The act is forbidden by sharia law which prohibits contact with a woman to whom a man is not related.

"The Muslim Iranian people have no recollection of such acts contrary to sharia law during Islamic rule," seethed the ultra-conservative Hezbollah newspaper, on its front page.

"This type of indecency progressively has grave consequences, like violating religious and sacred values."

And this isn't the first time that Ahmadinejad has upset hardline Islamic elements.
"This astonishing act by the president comes as the faithful have yet to forget his decision to allow women to watch football," noted the Hezbollah newspaper. [Ed. Note: The newspaper is not affiliated with the terrorist group of the same name.]
It's beyond me to understand how the feminists can tolerate the way Islamic fundamentalists treat women. There should be global outrage from the sisterhood. Yet, not a peep do we hear for fear of offending the religion of peace.

If women can devote their energy to saving African and Asian orphans, one at a time, and if they can save the polar bear, the wolf, the harp seal and just about every other conceivable cute furry animal, and if they can save Earth from global destruction, one toilet paper square at a time, then they sure can unite to forcefully and continuously protest the treatment of Muslim women as second-class human beings.

Regarding football? Of course women should be able to watch football, provided that they don't yack too much and interrupt the game.
