Here we go folks with yet another story from peace-loving Iran and the tolerant and peaceful religion of Islam. According to Ali Akbar Dareini, a writer for the Associated Press,a soccer game was held in Iran and people were punished for it. Well, after all it was a mixed soccer game, the first where males and (HORRORS!) females played together since the Islamic Revolution in 1979. It seems that the peaceful and tolerant religion of Islam bans any physical contact between unrelated men and women, and Iranian women are even banned from attending soccer games when male teams play.
Even the president Imadingyjihad (Ahmadinejad) surprised his conservative backers when in 2006 he decreed that women could attend soccer games; he said their presence would “improve soccer-watching manners and promote a healthy atmosphere.” Wow, pretty progressive for a lunatic bent on destroying Israel and America with the nuclear weapons they're NOT developing in the desert. It gets better though because their "supreme leader", Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, disagreed; since he has the final word, no women can be in the stands when the men play...so much for peace and tolerance huh?
