Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Summoned to Appear in Iranian Court
NBC Bay Area ^ | Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Posted on 05/27/2014 12:40:10 PM PDT by nickcarraway

A judge in southern Iran has ordered Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to appear in court to answer complaints by individuals who say Facebook-owned applications Instagram and Whatsapp violate their privacy, semiofficial news agency ISNA reported Tuesday.

It quoted Ruhollah Momen Nasab, an official with the paramilitary Basij force, as saying that the judge also ordered the two apps blocked. It is highly unlikely that Zuckerberg would appear in an Iranian court since there is no extradition treaty between Iran and the United States. Some Iranian courts have in recent years issued similar rulings that could not be carried out.

Gasp, the only humans I respect less than this dork is the mulladorks in Islamran.

They belong together.

Wonder who gets to be the wife.

And take a few ‘popular’ show hosts with him.

For company in his cell.

Tell the Iranian Court to “Go Get Stump Broke!”

Good Lord...stop. We lost Apple Steve Jobs. We don’t need to lose anymore of our intellectuals. Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg and maybe Bill Gates have made America the best of the best. The three of them have completely revitalized the World for goodness sake. Shame about Steve, but the others needs to stick around America for a long time.

The question should be "who's wife will he be?"

That is a stretch putting Zuckerberg in that list.

Probably so, but his computer expertise is pretty good. I mean I don’t agree with much of his politics (or maybe none at all) but to want a guy out of the country especially to a terrorist country is a bit much.

Yes, Zuckerberg should definite get his buttocks to Iran. The experience should be enlightening to him.

A Jew being tried in Iran? I’m sure the trial would be fair.

A very big stretch. If MySpace did a few things differently, we would not be talking about Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg is just lucky. He is not a "genius" innovator.

The only thing Zuckerberg has in common with Gates and Jobs is rabid leftism.

Intellectuals? All three of them were college dropouts.

“the paramilitary Basij force” ...the plain clothes force that beats and kills protestors.

I’m guessing they would want their pics up on Instagram, vandettas are a nasty thing. /sarc

Maybe Zuckerberg should just buy Iran and put it out of business!

Oh so the privacy thing is just a smoke cloud to get the Jew to Iran...unbelievable. I thought maybe it was payback for stealing Facebook (Facemash/The Facebook)idea from those twins.

And the biggest problem here is racism ? I think we have as many of those anti-Israel prejudices here as in Iran...so since Zuckerburg criticized Zero do you think he will have to go? Yes I know we don’t have an extradition agreement in place.

Hmmm...Remember the Cleric who told terrorists earlier in the year to kidnap Americans? Maybe Zuckerburg should hire more security and think twice where he travels.

Oh who cares...he’d be far more use to the world if we extradited him and let him be a lesson. Might actually wake some of the sheeple up.

What Jobs, Gates and Zuckerberg started others will improve on. New blood will have a chance to innovate and create.
I believe they have shot their wad and now it is time to go.
If Zuckerberg has charges or crimes to answer for in Iran he should go and face their music; might not be pretty though, the name Zuckerberg sounds Jewish.

Who cares?

Another liberal who wants to punish success. I am shocked to see it on here. Capitalism is dead if folks on here hate on the rich. So Sad.

He sucks up to liberal causes. Isn’t that reason enough to throw him to the wolves?

No. If we got rid of everyone we don’t agree with, we would have hardly anybody left to advance our technology especially.
