New Crazies

Thus spake Mohammad Elbaradei

"I wake every morning and see 100 Iraqis innocent civilians are dying," he said. "I have no brief other than to make sure we don't go into another war or that we go crazy into killing each other. You do not want to give additional argument to new crazies who say 'let's go and bomb Iran.'"

Asked who the "new crazies" were he replied: "Those who have extreme views and say the only solution is to impose your will by force."


And Cheney says "I'm not a new-crazy" ... well he is an old one now!

And Rice rushes to say me neither!

And then Larijani says No problemo ...
"We are determined to solve Iran's nuclear dossier today. We do not need to kill time because the country has obtained its nuclear capacity and is ready to reach agreement through constructive talks."

Wisdom's in the air!

maybe Rice can find a temporary husband in Iran.

Naj,
can you elaborate a little on the "may be Rice can find a temporary husband in Iran"... joke? ofcourse, but are you taking a two-birds-in-one-stone shot against temporary marriages and Rice?

David said...

Constructive talks sound good to me. I hope they will begin soon.

I think Rice wants to taste some of that icecream the Iranian Ambassador told her about. ;)

At the prison’s hospital, female inmates _ mostly young women jailed for illegal sexual relationships _ were attending classes on HIV infection and how to avoid the deadly virus.

for God sake, you telling us that she is “cross-dressing men!”

Manouchehr Mottaki Iran's foreign minister walked out of a dinner of diplomats where he was seated directly across from Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, on the pretext that the female violinist entertaining the gathering was dressed too revealingly.

Actually I just wanted to link to that temporary marriage article, because we were discussing it in the previous post, and I was also amused by this whole "new crazy" concept, and so over all nothing deep ... just a little link, titled such to provoke curiosity ;)

================
I think the reason why Mottaki couldn't sit with Rice at dinner was because his chastity would have been endangered ;) ... yes icecream would be good.

The last time I had Iranian icecream was in Florence ... yumm!

what's your problem buddy? I somehow fail to make sense of any of your blabbers :)

hmmm... it worked ;)

To the rude anonymous who feels he is an Iranologist:

if you read Persian. And if not,
Read the translation here.

I hope it is not too complex for your facile mind or impatient intellectual abilities--evidenced by your sporadic out of context comments here :)

Naj said...

hmm , why is my comment mangled?

Well: it should have been reading: "Take a look at this, if you read Persian, and if not, read the translation here"

In fact, Shokat Azziz, of Pakistan, was making the moves on Rice and she did not like it. An honorable offer of sighe would have been better; but then neither Rice nor Azziz are Shia.

Regarding the "Women on streets of Tehran", yes it is a shame. It is the Islamic Nikba (disaster). These people have darkened the shining face of Islam.

A couple of years ago, I read about the young religious students at Qom and how they would go to a nearby cemetary to meet prostitutes. They would do their little temporary marriage thing, use the women, and then walk away. One of the prostitutes there was interviewed. She said that she hated the religious students. She was divorced and her husband would not let her see her children. Depressed and with no particular job skills, she had turned to prostitution to survive. I guess these temporary marriages work out great for men, but I wonder how many women really enjoy the convenience of a religiously sanctioned wham, bam, thank you maam?

nunya said...

Naj, I think Rice thinks she's already taken: When last year she referred to Bush as 'my husband' it was a Freudian slip that reflected how close Rice and the Bush clan have become.

anonymous, NO American woman wants a man from Pakistan after them. Even when they emigrate they bring their (non-existent) bathing habits with them. The kids give them foul nicknames, you know?

you do have a sense of humor. I am shocked to discover it ;)

I recommend you watch a movie called the Lady's Room.

"do women really enjoy" ... well, I think if a woman consents to having sex with a man, she has reasons for doing so; whether she enjoys it or not is really her business.

It's like you say "do the minimum wage alien workers enjoy picking strawberries in the heat of southern California?"

Trust me, if you read some of these "religious" texts, they have thorough description of foreplay and it's importance in the islamic intercourse! (i'm laughing, but it is true, really.)

Darn ... I knew my little provocative comment up there would be distracting :))


Nunya

You have quite a few prejudices, don't you?
I dis-appreciate your comment about Pakistanis.

Once, during his travels, Nasser al Din Shah of Iran's Qajar dynasty was bivouacking in the country side and he felt like having a companion for the evening. His courtiers got him a sighe from a local village. When he lies with her, her odor kills all desire in him. He dismisses the girl and asks the village headman: “How can you people sleep with your wives when they stink thus?” And the headman answers: “Well, Sire! This way, not every one can sleep with them!”


David:

Sighe is not prostitution. We already have thousands of prostitutes all over Tehran alone and we do not need to marry them to obtain their services.

nunya is not completely wrong.

Different races, when sweaty, smell differently.

Some smell of curry and some, like me, smell of qormeh-sabzi. My German friend at times smelled like a German shepherd dog.

Different people in the world have different habits and one frequently washes oneself and keep's ones surroundings clean, one starts becoming more sensitive to smell.

Japanese and Koreans are the cleanest people I have met.

Naj, until you are forced to sit through a presentation next to a kid who's ignorant parents get him teased every day at school (stinky pakis), stop. The boy smelled so bad I was nauseated. Jr. High boys need deodorant.

Customs.

If I was to visit Iran, I would learn enough of the language to get by during the visit, and learn how to wear the headcover, and keep my nouth shut and learn.

Naj said...

A smelly Pakistani boy does make all Pakistanis stinky.

Spice consumption does that to people.

I think if you go to the UK, you will have to do some of that which you said you would learn in Iran, minus head covering ;)

---------
Pen speaking of clean Korean and Japanes ... yes they may be; but because of fish over-consumption they too smell!

I remember being shocked to see my Korean neighbor take her underwear off, put it on the floor of a public pool shower, and step up and down on it, is to make it clean!

---------------------
Nunya, I am quite squirmish when it comes to smells and wet public places ... and I admire people who can express their discomfort without offending others. But I will be mortified if I am to tell anyone they stink; I'd rather die of asphyxiation ;)

By the way ... unrelated note, today, my mother was expressing how grateful she was to have lovely children like us, and she was regretting she didn't have a few more kids like us! (We are already four :)) )

nunya said...

Naj,

Oh, heck no, another boy got a new jacket and some deodorant for Christmas from me, because he was asphyxiating me in my own car, I gave him rides to school.

I was so happy when the Persians moved in next door, the smell of fish sauce was killing me. I genuniely liked those neighbors, but I was starting to make a habit of leaving my house on Sundays. I like seafood, but that stuff smells like ___.

Naj,
I can only pray that all of our descendents don't have to deal with privation, poverty, and untenable pollution. In this country the mercury from power plants has drastically increased the amount of children born with autism.
