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?

Hmm, horrible and disgusting:

American soldiers discovered a girls school being built north of Baghdad had become an explosives-rigged “death trap,” the U.S. military said Thursday.
The plot at the Huda Girls’ school in Tarmiya was a “sophisticated and premeditated attempt to inflict massive casualties on our most innocent victims,” military spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell said.
The military suspects the plot was the work of al Qaeda, because of its nature and sophistication, Caldwell said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
The plot was uncovered Saturday, when troopers in the Salaheddin province found detonating wire across the street from the school. They picked up the wire and followed its trail, which led to the school. Once inside, they found an explosive-filled propane tank buried beneath the floor. There were artillery shells built into the ceiling and floor, and another propane tank was found, the military said.
The wire was concealed with mortar and concrete, and the propane tanks had been covered with brick and hidden underneath the floor, according to a military statement. Soldiers were able to clear the building.
“It was truly just an incredibly ugly, dirty kind of vicious killing that would have gone on here,” Caldwell said.

Just disgusting. And then I imagine the MSM titles: US Army operation turns out in bloody outcome: nearly 200 girls killed. Puagggghhh!!

You can see the video here. Disgusting, very disgusting. And Spanish MSM -to the extent of my knowledge- have said nothing about this…

Anyway, Barcepundit has written in Spanish about it.

UPDATE: Al-Maliki, Iraqi PM, has ties with Iranian Revolutionary Guards!! At least that is what the Egyptian Government mantains h/t Clarity and Resolve.


En español: ¡¡no lo he encontrado!! Si alguien tiene el link por favor, lo deje en comentarios. Así que lo traduzco:

Los soldados americanos descubrieron que un colegio para niñas en construcción al norte de Baghdad había sido transformado en una trampa llena de eplosivos, según los militares EEUU.
La conjura del colegio para niñas de Huda en Tarmiya, era un “sofisticado y premeditado intento de inflingir bajas masivas en nuestras víctimas más inocentes“, dijo el portavoz militar General William Caldwell. Los militares sospechan que era un plan de Al-Qaeda, tanto por su naturaleza como por su sofisticación, añadió.
Todo fue descubierto cuando las tropas de la provincia de Salaheddin encontrarn cable detonante desde la calle hasta dentro del colegio.
Cogieron el cable y lo siguieron hasta el colegio. Ya dentro, encontraron un tanque lleno de propano enterrado en el suelo. Había varias piezas de artillería en el techo y en el suelo. Después fue encontrado otro tanque de propano. El cable había sido escondido con cemento y los tanques de propano habían sido cubiertos con ladrillos y escondidos debajo del suelo.
“Lo que se hubiera producido ahí era un increíble, horrendo y sucia manera de asesinato vicioso”, añadió Caldwell.

Y los medios en España no han dicho NADA… Barcepundit sí lo ha tratado.
