Funny stuff (in a sad sort of way)

Scott Lucas in Enduring America reports on a few funny (in a sad sort of way) pieces of news coming out of Iran.

* The Friday Prayer leader of Mashhad in Iran has said that a woman who wears her headscarf back is “more dangerous than any insect.” Apparently, is you’re a woman on a bike you should be careful because you can “shatter a boy’s faith.” LOL.

* The Deputy Minister of Interior, reports that exorcists and sorcerers will be investigated in 10 provinces. Any one doubt now that Iran lives in the Middle Ages?

* The former Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance has stated that satellite dishes are carrying the secession and sedition into the homes of the Iranians, spoiling the children. He has linked the problem to the Internet. This is a video showing authorities collecting satellite dishes. They do that every once in a while and then people go put them back up again.

* And finally a dangerous painting. One of the largest wall paintings in Iran that depicted the historical epic Shahnameh, has been erased in Mashhad. It was created by a group of artists and cost $45,000. There is an ongoing tension inside Iran over the celebration of Persian culture that doesn’t go with the Islamic views of the government. This is the before and after photographs of the mural:
