Adnkronos International reported An Iranian religious tribunal will try former president Mohammad Khatami, a moderate Muslim cleric, and possibly ban him from preaching over a handhsake with two women during a recent trip to Italy.
Even a polite handshake is foreign to these nutcases.The court, which is charged to rule on crimes committed by clerics, will examine the lawsuit presented by a group of talabeh, theology students, from Mashhad, Iran's holiest city. Another lawsuit has also been filed by paramilitary militia Hezbollah, present in all major Iranian cities.
Maybe Hezbollah will just shoot him, and avoid the necessity of a trial.In a statement distributed to the press Wednesday, the clerics ask for Khatami's conviction for shaking "impure hands, contradicting the sacred principles of Islam" and compare the former president, who ruled from 1997 until 2005, to a "political prostitute."
How do they know the hands were "impure"?On 12 June, the Baran foundation of Khatami issued a statement denying the cleric had intentionally shaken hands with women - as shown in footage of his trip to Italy broadcast on 'YouTube' - a gesture prohibited under Iran's strict interpretation of Islamic law banning all physical contact between men and women who are not related. The statement indicated either the footage had been edited to give a false impression or else Khatami had shaken the hands of people in a crowd without realising they were female.
Can't he tell the difference just by looking?Gateway Pundit blogged Sex, Lies, & Videotape... He may deny it, but in his lustful heart he loved it! Evidently, he loved it so much he had to indulge himself a second time just moments later! Now, the so-called "moderate" who just lashed out against the enemies of Islam earlier today, is denying the charges even though it was caught on tape!!
