Dominique Strauss-Kahn: 'Thunderbolt' news for France
01-Jul-2011 (12 comments)

In the words of the last Socialist Prime Minister, Lionel Jospin, "this is a thunderbolt".

Whatever the merits of this new evidence, whatever the character of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the French felt particularly aggrieved at the way the case was conducted in the days after his arrest.

It was not only his reputation that was tarnished, but also that of the French nation in the eyes of the international community.

The "perp walk", the parading of the accused, the headlines such as "Chez Perv" and "Frog Legs It", were widely perceived as insulting and humiliating.

I actually think Your General knowledge on Europe and Iranian history is quite good. I have observed it through your witty comments and feedbacks and blogs but more importantly you have a good sense of humor which is rare on IC ...


I don't have a problem with Jomhurykhahy either all the more that I said Constitutionalism is about implementing Republican Ideals within a Royal Framework:


ROYAL FORUM: Explaining the Concept of a Constitutional Monarchy to a Staunch Republican


The UK Model of government and respect for tradition is something I personally favor but if there were a model fit for Iran, I would most probably suggest the Spanish One given that I think as a people we share the same hot blooded and stubborn nature.


But what I don't like is the rampant hypocrisy of those who demand accountability from others but refuse it to themselves.


I think 32 years after 1979 and more than 58 years after the So called Coup the minimum honesty on behalf of any Iranian patriot regardless of what they believe in is to acknowledge that history is not Black and White.


For the rest well like all things one can agree to disagree but there should always be room for debate.


My frustrations with Iranian Jomhurykhahs is that they are not even ready to debate. Even when proven wrong based on logical arguments they get all Ehsassaty and dismiss you merely on political prejudice not based on what you have said. As a matter of fact running out of arguments that prompts them at best to become aggressive.

That to me is more of a sign of their own intellectual insecurity than sheer and sincere conviction.

Thanks for the correction.

As I wrote in one of my blogs, I wasn't studying French too hard when I was in college and I guess it shows now. And all the new stuff that I have learned in France, I have learned them at places like Lameloise around Dijon!

I am cool with Monarchists and Reza Pahlavi, but I prefer a Republic more like France (where you live) or the US (where I live). I just don't see the point of paying for somebody like Prince Charles to go around partying and playing polo! I would rather spend my discretionary income to support the life style of my favorite movie stars or athletes!

It seems though that in today's French Republic it's practiced by Gauche Caviar Left Wing Socialists who often claim to speak in the interests of all the worlds paupers and boast to be the only ones to have an opinion on every subject of public concern ranging from  Human Rights, to Gay rights to climate change to women rights to world citizenship ,  you name it as if  they had the upperhand in all things when it comes to "Morality" But refuse accountability when they themselves fall short on the above issues ...

French Maids!

by Faramarz on

There is a French term, Droit du Seigneur which means that the master of the house has the right to his servants' daughters to remove their virginity. And therein lies the French rich and powerful's attitude towards maids.

In the old days before a maid was married, the master would do the "quality check!"

I am sure that Dariush knows all of this. It is good to be Da King!

داریوش جان صمد یادت میاد؟!

Esfand Aashena

تو یکی‌ از این episode‌های تلویزیونی سرکار استوار، یک بار mafia ی محل لقبش "خان بزرگ" یا یک همچین چیزی بود.  صمد رو هم یار و غار‌های "خان بزرگ" گرفته بودن و بهش گفتن باید بهشون کمک کنن که جنس قاچاق رو ردّ کنند و آلا خان بزرگ ناراحت میشه و پوست تو و تمام اهالی ده‌‌‌ رو می‌کنه!

خلاصه صمد فرار میکنه بعد سرکار استوار که ردّ خان بابا رو داشته از صمد میپرسه هرچی‌ میدونی‌ بگو که به تحقیقات کمک کنه.

صمد هم میگه، این قاچاق چیها هی‌ میگفتند، خان بابا، خان آقا، خان دایی .... که سرکار استوار ناراحت می‌شه داد میزنه میگه صمد خفمون کردی، حرف اصلی‌ رو بزن!  صمد هم میگه، میگفتن این خان بابا، خان آقا .... ناراهنن!

حالا شما هم ظاهراً ناراهنین!
