‘Immodest' Girls Beat Up Iranian Cleric
Arutz Sheva ^ | 21/9/12 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Posted on 09/20/2012 11:54:52 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

An Iranian Muslim cleric was hospitalized for three days after begin kicked and beaten up by two girls, one of whom he warned was “badly covered.”

The incident in northern Iran was reported by the country's Mehr News Agency, whose outlook can be understood by the fact that it is owned by the Islamic Ideology Dissemination Organization.

The report was picked up first by Bloomberg News, which noted that the regime in Iran often sends out police to enforce strict Islamic dress codes, especially in the summer when women may be prone to wearing less covering.

The cleric, Hojatoleslam Ali Beheshti, told Mehr he was on the way to a mosque when he admonished one of the girls.

She startled the cleric with her feminist reply, “Cover your eyes.” He stood his ground and repeated the warning, and the girl and her friend teamed up to promptly hurl insults at him and then followed up with a few kicks while pushing him.

“I fell on my back on the floor,” Beheshti said. “I don’t know what happened after that, all I could feel was the kicks of this woman who was insulting me and attacking me.”

After recuperating for three days in the hospital, Beheshti said he was carrying out his religious responsibility by “commanding right and forbidding wrong” and that he would risk attacks by women, despite experiencing what he “the worst day of my life.”

Mehr told its readers that there have been previous attacks ...

They can always put on a Burkha and slip away, and from thenceforth remain thoroughly covered.

The only good thing about a burka: You can beat up an insane Muslim cleric and maybe get away with it.

I should not laugh, really-— but I am laughing

Cleric got beaten by women, how ever will he face his brother clerics.
He best hope that this does not become common knowledge, Who knows maybe other women will start beating clerics, then maybe killing clerics, then in time women will be in control.
Could set a trend

It’s not great battles or epically heroic stands that give birth to freedom. Those battles and stands are amalgamations and focal points of small acts of courage and seemingly insignificant refusals to tolerate tyranny.

Acts such as these girls displayed.

I wish them well because they are where freedoms starts.

Perhaps they were just visiting and are out of harm’s way.

Over the years I have met a couple of Iranian women and they were both “in your face” types. The would definitly have been a handful. Good looking, though!

I was watching Rick Steves’s show about travel last weekend, and by coincidence he was visiting Iran. During one segment of his show he stopped and chatted with a bunch of Iranian students. One young girl expressly told Steves that the government and religion should not be linked. I hope she and the other young women in the show were some of the girls who beat the snot out of the fascist cleric. I look forward to the day (hopefully) when the Iranian people drag those troglodyte mullahs out of the government buildings by their dirty beards and hang them en masse.

A small, first application of what we might call the Solzhenitsyn Solution:

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” — Alexandr Solzhenitsyn

She should have sawed his head off, dragged him into the desert and buried him where he would never be found.

I do know quite a few and they are all as you describe.

Ah, yes....I read that years ago....and forgot about it.

I’m sure I was sub-consciously plagiarizing the idea, and re-wording it romantically to satisfy a need to express it because I was in a foul mood and the flippancy of some of the comments was ticking me off.

I’m glad you brought that quote back to me...The idea means infinitely more coming from Solzhenitsyn.

Imam, what did the girls look like?
Well, they were covered up. They looked like a bed walking down the street. They were two of them.
So you want me to arrest every woman in Iran who is covered up like a bed?

Come now. It’s not like he converted to Judaism or anything. A good beat down sufficed.

Iran has been at the tipping point of taking their country back for democracy several times, and we have never given them substantive support.

I have met Iranians of the Bahai Faith, gone to their clubs, eaten in their homes...IMO Iranian women as a rule are very educated, somewhat opinionated, not subservient at all. Their courtesy and hospitality for a stranger was beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. I also have to admit that Iranian women are some of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen... I had to keep on my guard, not to stare.

Remove the savagery of Islam, and I feel Iranians would be the most civilizing influence in the Middle East.
