1. Iranian "Animal Farm"
JPS ,   Israel   (01.05.07)
“All Iranians are equal, But some Iranians are more equal than others.” Those who have read Orwell would understand. Perhaps it should be translated into Farsi and circulated in Iran.
2. 'dancing women'
Dan ,   Israel   (01.05.07)
What's a big deal? In watching a dance? Of a woman? In nude? She is probably doing it for earning living! Forced by your own administration failures! If VP helps her; what’s a problem? And why arrest an editor? He is only reporting whatever happened; with proofs! Instead arrest VP for going against his country’s laws.
3. Invite Ahmadinedjad to a strip-tease
Raffaele Ladu ,   Verona, Italy   (01.05.07)
4. Its the same all over
David ,   Yerushalayim   (01.05.07)
If the Haredim were in power, the same thing would happen here
5. To number one!
Palestinian   (01.05.07)
Interestingly, we have studied this story "Animal Farm" in the 10th grade during the Anthology English course! It is indeed an outstanding story that only seems to keep repeating during the history...
6. No wonder these guys are crazy..
Johnson ,   USA   (01.05.07)
7. To number five
JPS ,   Israel   (01.05.07)
And as the news from Israel about the latest scandal shows, we too in Isrel struggle with this all the time. Oh, if you and I could only put those daily existential questions aside for a few moments and concentrate on that what unites us and improves our lives.
8. Were the Neturei Kartoonim there too?
Quite likely.
9. Suddenly I was faced with a dance????
M. Hartley ,   Atlanta, US   (01.05.07)
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Now this is worth getting up for!! How long did that "suddenly" last? 30 Minutes? 2 hours? What is this, anyway? While some of us in the West go through torture and limp around for weeks to learn that ME dancing stuff, at home, they're getting arrested for just showing it. I guess, Ahmadinejad would not be interested in a Shakira video.
10. To Number Five & Seven
Sefardita ,   Sweden   (01.05.07)
You both make interesting points. It also will make a great sequel to James Bond from Russia with Love.LOL
11. these iranians need to get laid
12. Yeah. Right.
Ironcandle ,   Atlanta, GA   (01.05.07)
He sounds like he is explaining to his wife what happened to him at a strip bar after he drank too much. "Well, I was sitting there minding my own business, when these women just burst in and started dancing!! It was horrible how I had to sit and watch the whole thing and then applaud! What was I supposed to do, leave?? I hope that never happens again! By the way, shoot those guys that caught me doing it." Now we know how to defeat the Iranians. Use an all-female force with no veils.
13. not enough dancing
mordechai ,   jerusalem   (01.05.07)
If deputy PM Peres were caught dancing with unveiled women, he would gain political support
14. Those who supress women under veil, behave like animals when
they see other woman   (01.05.07)
15. #12 Yeah, you are right
clippers ,   SE Asia   (01.05.07)
Enjoy first, complain can come in later. We are human beings and we can understand his urges ...
16. just like american liberals, do as i say, not as i do
jeff ,   liberal seattle   (01.05.07)
17. he'd rather watch men strip
Jones ,   USA   (01.05.07)
he is ashamed he had to look at women.
18. is this country wrapped too tight or what?
Cameron ,   USA   (01.05.07)
See what happens when you spend too much time in the Mosque! #11-you mentioned the golden answer to 1/2 the problems of the ME.
