Iranian models arrested for posting pictures without headscarves

Eight Iranian models have been arrested for appearing online for an “un-Islamic” network, the country’s judicial system confirmed yesterday.

The announcement, by Tehran’s cyber-crimes court, confirms reports of disappearances of faces that had become well-known on social media feeds like Instagram.

    Anything they can do to cripple their own society is to be applauded.

    As an aside, I have been posting pictures of young Israeli women from time to time. I notice the great similarity between the women of both nations. So, if anyone claims that Israelis are European occupiers of Middle Eastern land and not indigenous to it, these pictures should give the lie to that assertion.

    • But Persians aren’t Semites.

        That distinction is based on language, not looks.

          Persians are indo-europeans not semites. Anyway, I would bet there has been a lot of mixing the last few thousand years.

        So is a vegetarian semite a vegemite?

      You only need to read the Old Testament story of Ester who became a queen of Persia and saved her people from genocide. So the long Babylonien captivity means that there was some intermarriage just as with the Egyptians

    These women need to realize that wearing a bag over your head is a victory for feminism. At least that’s what Harooooon and Mallick state at the Star.

      Haroon, Mallick, and their ilk would probably consider these women “Islamophobic”.

      Mallick is for the head bag until someone tells her she has to wear one.
      Then she’ll change her mind right effing quick.

        In Malice’s case a bag on the head is a good idea. Woof.

          She’s used a decent rack to climb the ladder.
