Shahmirzad Girls: Beat up cleric

After he tells them to cover up

CNN: They may be a far cry from their Western counterparts fighting for the acceptance to breast-feed -- or go topless -- in public, but two girls clobbered a cleric recently in a small town in Iran when he admonished one of them to cover herself more completely. The cleric said he asked "politely," but the girl's angry reaction and some pugilistic double-teaming with her friend landed the holy man in the hospital, according to an account Monday in the semiofficial Mehr News Agency.

Hojatoleslam Ali Beheshti said he encountered the girls on his way to the mosque in the village of Shahmirzad for noon prayers in late August. He told one of the girls to cover up, the report said. "She responded by telling me to cover my eyes, which was very insulting to me," Beheshti said. So he asked her a second time to cover up and also to put a lid on what he felt was verbal abuse.

She hit the man of the cloth, and he hit the ground.

"I don't remember what happened after that," he said. "I just felt her kicks and heard her insults." Beheshti, who emerged from the infirmary three days later, said he did not file a complaint against the girls >>>

Location, location...

What gives significance to this incident is the location of it. It took place in a VILLAGE where people are normally more conservative than big cities.  I wouldn't have given it a second thought if this happened in north Tehran, let's say. But in a village? This could be an indication IRI is loosing it's base faster than they thought.

And yes, next Iranian revolution will be lead by women!

Rare instance of courage coming out of Iran

and of course, it's our women. The men are busy licking mullahs' balls and appeasing them.

Hatred towards Mullahs in Iran...

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

Whenever I am back home, I get shocked by the rising level of hatred towards mullahs. From passive aggressive acts of a cab driver speeding past a mullah to pick up the next passenger, to open deeply hostile commentary from very devout muslims to this, beating up a mullah by couple of girls!...

I'm afraid we will be witnessing a blood bath in Iran after the overthrowing of the Islamist regime, the likes of it has not been seen in our country for centuries...
