Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei says: “The European races are barbaric.”
OK, we’re listening.
He continues: “They wear freshly pressed suits and ties, and they smell of eau de cologne, but deep down, they still have the same barbaric nature known from history. They kill with ease. They murder people without any problem.
“Therefore, beating women in their homes is of no consequence to the (Europeans) and Americans, whereas in an Islamic environment, it is unimaginable.”
First of all, I must ask, who renewed the old man’s HBO subscription?
Second, does he include honor murder in the list of what gets done in an Islamic environment?
Third, he’s talking to a roomful of women who are covered head to toe in black schmates – how can he tell whether they’ve been beaten or not?
