Iran Ignores Earthquake Tragedy

The Iranian government has been accused of ignoring the devastating earthquake that killed 300 of its people over the weekend. Press TV, Iran’s state television channel, failed to mention the disaster while bonkers President Mahmoud Ahmadienjad and supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei took over a day to issue a response. Guido has taken a look at Press TV‘s website and has yet to find anything on the tragedy. There was, however, a story about how the Olympics have apparently been infiltrated by Zionists:

      Look, like, you know I can help you going forward with a modernisation agenda to be more modern and inclusive in the 21st century.

      £150,000 for initial speech – payment either by used bank notes or through one of my ‘charities’.

      After that we can talk long-term contracts but will be 7 figures for annual deal.

      Down with the mullahs says:

      There’s no point – nobody gave them any money last time they had an earthquake. The west loathe them because they’re oppressive, bellicose, organise terrorism and want to get nuclear weapons while 90% of Muslims hate them because they are shia. Besides most Muslims can’ distinguish between charity from unbelievers and proselytisation (that’s the only reason they ever make their minimal contributions to aid for infidels such as the Haitians) although many of them can rationalise it into being some sort of jizya. Also, if hey publicise the problem among their own people they might face calls for an agreement that ends sanctions and stops money being spent on a nuclear insurance against western regime-changers.

    Targeted assassination is necessary says:

    All jokes aside, Ahmadinejad is a barking mad warmonger who genuinely believes he’s on a god given mission to bring about the third world war. Most people in Iran hate him but can’t do anything about it. They live under tyranny. Things had become relatively moderate under Khatami in the 90s but this c-unt has taken the country back by hundreds of years. He poses such a serious threat to the future of the country, and the region as a whole, he really does need to be done away with.

        A bit difficult when the government has the entire military, police and secret service at their disposal killing anyone who dissents, as per the uprising a few years ago.

          • Another pearl of wisdom from an armchair military expert says:

            Maybe if the US government hadn’t deposed the moderate and democratically elected Mossadeq government and installed the Shah as royal dictator with oil policies favourable to the US, Iran wouldn’t be in the mess it is now. There’d have been no Shah, no revolution, no Khomeini, no mad mullahs in charge of the country. But the US and its pesky interests meant democracy had to make way.

      The Paragnostic says:

      Exactly.

      What good would reporting the earthquakes do, anyway? Will it lead to a better response from the emergency services? Will it stop further earthquakes?

      OK – if it happened over here, it would be news, but Iran is very earthquake prone, and the events of the weekend were pretty minor compared to some of the quakes they have had in the past.

      Maybe Iranians are less prurient in their choice of news than we are?

      Oh, and the Olympics weren’t Z***ist – they even refused to acknowledge the events of 1972 officially. Which I think is a good thing, but most of Finchley might disagree.

    What a fucking suprise says:

    A disciplinary panel says the pathologist who conducted the first post-mortem examination on Ian Tomlinson is “dishonest” and “liable to bring his profession into disrepute”.

    Dr Freddy Patel said Mr Tomlinson, who was pushed to the ground by a policeman at the G20 protests in London in 2009, had died of coronary artery disease.

    A Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service panel found this was wrong. The panel also found that his conduct was “misleading”.

    In total, 68 failings were identified by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in Dr Patel’s work on the case of Mr Tomlinson. The panel will now determine if his “fitness to practise” was “impaired by reason of misconduct and/or deficient professional performance” and if he should be allowed to continue as a pathologist.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
