Street Justice: Iranian Cleric Pummeled by ‘Badly Covered’ Woman After Warning

Posted by on Sep 20, 2012 at 7:28 am

Our feel-good story of the morning. Caveman chides woman for what she’s wearing, gets a beatdown.

More, please.

An Iranian cleric said he was beaten by a woman in the northern province of Semnan after giving her a warning for being “badly covered,” the state-run Mehr news agency reported.

Hojatoleslam Ali Beheshti said he encountered the woman in the street while on his way to the mosque in the town of Shahmirzad, and asked her to cover herself up, to which she replied “you, cover your eyes,” according to Mehr. The cleric repeated his warning, which he said prompted her to insult and push him.

“I fell on my back on the floor,” Beheshti said in the report. “I don’t know what happened after that, all I could feel was the kicks of this woman who was insulting me and attacking me.”

We can only pray for this woman’s safety. And that all Iranian women fight back. Maybe even our liberals friends who promote the phony “war on women” can get on board. But I doubt they’ll utter a peep.

Beheshti said he was hospitalized for three days. The Iranian cleric said it was his religious duty to apply the principle of “commanding right and forbidding wrong,” and that he would continue to do so even after living through what he called “the worst day of my life.”

It isn’t the first time that clerics in Iran have been beaten up after delivering warnings, Mehr said.

Let’s hope it’s not the last.

    Strange how democrats seem tone finding common cause with Islamicists. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that they both desire power over people, and they both think they can be the last standing….

    Women, coal miners… all just ammunition for the libs on their march to totalitarianism.

    Sounds like a very special episode of Sharia:SVU

    Spoiler: 45 minutes into the show, we find out that he paid her.
    50 minutes into the show, we find that someone else paid her and they filmed it.

    Funny how where I live women seem happy to walk around in abbreviated clothing on a nice sunny day (of which we have about 350 a year) without men being unable to resist leaping on them. As a corollary, it’s funny how in the nearly 14 years I’ve been here the times I’ve seen a chattel slave dressed in a mobile pup tent can be counted on the fingers of one thumb. I’d love to see what would happen if some 7th C. barbarian upbraided a woman here for dressing lasciviously. They’re feisty enough that three days in hospital would be a lucky get-away.

    Well let’s just hope that more than a few judicious kicks were applied to the crotch of this camel humping cleric.

    It’s a shame his three-day hospital stay didn’t end with his transfer to the morgue.
