1. The lady is the female version of a Mullah
AA ,   UK   (12.27.12)
This same woman is one of the main sponsores of a a so called law which requires parental permission for any woman below the age 40 wanting to have an overseas trip.She tows the line taken by an Islamic cleric who has decleared a mental deficiency characteristic to women below this age, by the way parental permission for those not married married ones need the permission of their beloved husband .She is certainly doing her bit for women's rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran, I feel ashamed and embarrassed to post this I am an Iranian and like the other 75 million a victim of these backwards scumbags.
2. Hey, no problem!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.27.12)
The Iranians will set about developing their own medications and in a week to ten days, will announce that they have developed chemotherapy protocols that far outstrip anything available in the West, and that they have discovered not only a cure to multiple sclerosis, hemophilia, leukemia and lymphoma, but a cure for the common cold as well. You watch.
3. Iran fires only female minister
Syd Chaden ,   Palermo Calif USA   (12.27.12)
Under the Shariah, which is law in Iran, a woman is subject to being stoned to death for being in the presence of males other than her husband or brother, unless her husband or brother are present. The feminist activists never mention that, but they have complained about the treatment of women in Israel. Perhaps, if Israel considered the introduction of stoning its women, the feminists would be as happy with Israel as they seem to be with Iran.

Dear Sarah, judging by your post and not the so funny humour you are either a Persian Jew or something very close to that in which case you should not be taking the Mickey, it is not so funny if you are a cancer patient in Iran and cannot get medicine through a combination of being led by a bunch of Donkeys’ and sanctions engineered by Israel lobby against whom and ordinary Iranian has no bad feeling, shame on you. If my assumption is correct then you know the difference between Iranians and the scum who run Iran, shouldn’t you?

Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.28.12)
Actually, I'm Ashkenazi. Nowhere did I suggest that being a cancer patient -- or suffering from any disease -- is humorous. I'm a cancer survivor myself. I was merely pointing up the ridiculous Islamofascist Republic of Iran, with their ludicrous claims of producing everything bigger, better and more advanced than the West. Perhaps only the people of Iran can undo the terrible fix in which they find themselves. Why should I care more about them than their own government does?
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (12.28.12)
Iran,you tend to overdo it whilst the UN report states otherwise.Would you care to avoid misguiding the readers? However, several past attempts by you has lead to you ridiculing yourself.
7. AA @ 4 re Sarah B, a case for treatment
Norbus ,   Jerusalem   (12.28.12)
AA; you are so right; I feel for you and the 30000 Jews left trapped, and all Iran.,It is no joke when there is need to sell Kidneys to eat, or to resort to the oldest profession in the world to feed your family whilst the Mullahs spend on their crazed notions of power muffled by some religious mumbo Jumbo Sarah B displays a condition that has to fire from the hip and attack as a serial poster each and any position taken by others, serious or otherwise deluded that she is dispensing the wisdom of Solomon, the leadership of Alexander the Great . I had put it down to American Water which seems to affect many Americans. I blame Obama for prolonging Iran's agony when he refused to lift a finger to help the green revolution in 2009.
8. She could have held onto her job if she knew about the
Rivkah   (12.28.12)
book by an Iranian doctor "The Water Cure" on how he cured cancer and many diseases of the Iranian aristocracy waiting to be executed after the Shah's reign ended. WATER, pure filtered, WATER cures diseases when there are no other medicines for the sick. That was the only medicine he had to offer them and they got WELL before being executed.
9. 1 AA, UK: YHWH did not trust Sarah to be a mother until
Rivkah   (12.28.12)
she was ninety. YHWH did not trust Rebekah to be a mother until she was forty. If you read the Book of Jasher, you will find that when Abraham visited his son Ishmael, he went without Sarah. When angels asked Abraham where his wife was, he said, "BEHOLD, IN THE TENT!" He was PROUD his wife was IN THE TENT instead of wandering around even when she was 89 years old! What's wrong with the ways of YHWH? Muslim women appreciate His ways more than Christian or Jewish women, it seems, even though Allah is not YHWH! Muslim women believe in modesty and chastity and staying in the home instead of wandering about. What does Gesenius' Hebrew Lexicon say about women who wander about? That is the definition of an immoral woman, a harlot. Not all women who wander around are harlots, but they are more likely to become evil to YHWH if they wander around instead of staying in the tent like the Patriarch Abraham's wife, Sarah. BEHOLD IN THE TENT!

MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (12.28.12)
That Iran keeps on claiming of achievements and you seem so certain that they are all false,why does it bug you then? You had written somewhat similiar toned response when the Iranians claimed to have captured the most sophisticated drone in USA force just to turn silent when it was shown on the Iranian TV.Keep on trying Sarah...........that's what you are good at.

Iranian Jew ,   LA   (12.28.12)
The monkey in Tehran has plenty of money to spend on nukes and guns. There is enough money to get medicine if they choose to spend it. Stop acting like they did not that they would be in this whole when they begin their so called revolution. Sarah's opinion will not change this fact. Focus on what she really says instead of getting insulted like a 9 year d school boy.
12. To: No. 10
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.28.12)
It doesn't "bug" me in the least. I find it quite amusing. Who cares about the most sophisticated drone in the United States arsenal? That drone is nothing more than a paper airplane compared to the drones Israel has. The United States isn't going to do anything about the plight of the Iranian people -- especially since it was the Iranian people who wanted a regime change back in 1979. Of course, within a year or so, the true face of the Ayatollah Khomeini was revealed, and true moderates -- those who wanted democratic reforms -- such as Gotzbadeh -- wound up in front of a firing squad and Bani-Sadr barely escaped with his life. Within two years, the Islamic regime in Iran killed more people than the Shah and Savak had in twenty-five years. So while I do sympathize with the plight of the Iranian people, particularly the Zoroastrian, Jewish and Azeri communities, for the most part -- aren't the Iranian people getting exactly what they clamored for back in 1979? Whose fault is that? Iran's Islamic experiment is a scorpion consuming its tail. Sooner or later, it was be crushed under its own weight. Have you checked out the price of a 10-kilo bag of rice in Iran these days? Chicken has become a black market commodity, with a single fresh chicken commanding upwards of 1,000 United States dollars (no one is interested in rial transactions). I'd call that being in pretty desperate straits.

Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.28.12)
"I blame Obama for prolonging Iran's agony when he refused to lift a finger to help the green revolution in 2009." Contemplate the strong likelihood that the people of the United States were not terribly interested in aiding people who were responsible for the invasion of the United States Embassy in Teheran in 1979, and taking hostages who were kept in deplorable conditions for upward of year. Nor have the American people forgotten the film clips of Iranian mullahs kicking and defiling the corpses of the American servicemen who perished in Carter's hapless rescue attempt. The president of the United States does, after all, work for the American people, and the American people were then, and are now, quite indifferent to the plight of people who call the United States the "great Satan" and burn the United States flag on virtually a daily basis. The Iranian people sowed the wind in 1979. They lose the right to complain when the time comes to reap the whirlwind.

Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.28.12)
Iran doesn't need me to discredit itself -- it's doing a fine job all on its own. Just check out Iran's infant and childhood mortality rates. You may also wish to check out the number of women who die in childbirth because male physicians cannot attend female patients. Male hairdressers cannot have women clients. Iran is well down the path to self-destruction; of that you may be certain.
15. Fighting for medicine money is a virtue.
Michael ,   California, USA   (12.28.12)
After the monkey is overthrown, she'll replace him in a free Iran. Until then, she has a huge task to get Iranian women shed the ugly head covers.
16. Re Sarah B,Iranian Jew
AA ,   UK   (12.28.12)
I am truly sorry to hear that you are living as a cancer survivor however if you are living in Israel then unlike your equivalents in Iran ,not only will you be getting probably the very best free( or other wise) aftercare in the world but also enjoy one of the most vibrant democracies ( unfortunately mainly for the Jews) , women's rights , freedom ,protections of a free judiciary , have the pleasure of reading the likes of Ynet, J Post, Haaretz,..Etc( unlike Iranians who are subjected to low IQ style of Gobles so called press) but after 33 years of abusive mistreatment and mismanagement economically and politically by a bunch of reactionaries , some the most punishing sanctions which would have destroyed most nations( Israel included) we survive ,why because there is lots if decent caring selfless people in Iran and Iranians are generally speaking quite hard working and smart,as for the Iranian Jew please read my postings again if you don't get it get some intelligent person like no 7 Nobus to explain it to you sorry but you come across very dumb.

Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.28.12)
Actually, I am blessed to have been the recipient of the best of both worlds. My chemotherapy was administered in the United States, but the protocol -- Dose Dense AC and Taxol, in case anyone cares -- was developed in Israel. You may not be aware, but a staggering seventy percent of all chemotherapy protocols in use throughout the world were developed in Israel. Israel has made them available. But you can scarcely fault Israel if Iran is far more interested in castigating Israel and threatening its destruction on what has become a boringly repetitive basis -- which is to say, quite nearly daily. The same self-destructive behavior which caused a great number of African countries who suffer from devastating drought to eschew the assistance of the State of Israel, which has, arguably, developed astonishing agricultural techniques and has succeeding in literally pushing back the desert and coaxing life into arid and barren soil -- for what? False promises made by ruthless, but very wealthy, Arab despots? Well, okay. The help you are ready to offer is dependent largely upon the willingness of the potential recipient to accept that help. So Israel continues to bloom and grow and thrive while millions die of thirst and starvation, all because a sad number of nations would rather posture an anti-Israel aggression than feed and succor its people. You can lump Iran in with those nations, who would rather continue their sturm und drang haranguement of Israel rather than accept a hand offered in friendship. The problem is not with Israel. It's with those other nations. The problem is with Iran, who is willing to let millions die rather than stop calling for the destruction of the "Zionist entity." Pathetic? Yes? The West's problem? No. Only the Iranian people can fix that. Do you know how the German people did not escape blame for mass murder of Jews, Gypsies, Roman Catholics, Socialists, Communists, Homosexuals? Should the Iranian people be held to a lesser standard? I don't think so. It is time for them to help themselves. The West has done more than enough. You get the government that you vote for -- whether it be in Nazi Germany, Gaza, or Iran. If you don't like the government -- rise up in protest. The last I checked, the Iranian people are entirely satisfied with their government or they must rely on that rejected mantra of the defeated German people in World War II -- that old "we didn't know" excuse, which has been resoundingly rejected. In sum, the Iranian people are responsible for their dismal circumstances and their fate. Cowardice and self-preservation are no longer an acceptable reason to do nothing to stop an evil, and have not been since World War II.

Hay Sarah, please repeat after me, Iran is where Iranians live you cannot judge the people of Iran by their government like you cannot judge any other nation."You get the government you vote for" - "The last I checked, the Iranian people are entirely satisfied with their government" - just where do you this garbage from? It is totally untrue; your information source is certainly not the Israeli press that I know and enjoy reading. I may not agree with some of the Israeli press from the far left to the far right but they are some of the best in the world and I sincerely mean it (Including the wit and the intellect of most of its posters but not you I am afraid).Please stop writing arrogant garbage and have a grip on the intellectual validity of what you write in flawless perfect English but spoil it by attitude.
