Ahmadinejad criticized by his own

Iran’s president, Majmoud Ahmadinejad, is now being criticized by hard-line Muslims considered to be his allies. Why? Because he was seen on television watching a song-and-dance routine at the opening ceremonies of the Asian games. Why does this merit criticism? Because Islamic law forbids women to sing and dance before a male audience…and moreover, these women were not wearing veils.

When I read the article yesterday, I had to laugh. Wouldn’t it be great if Ahmadinejad were ousted by his own people? I don’t think this incident will come to that, but it’d still be nice.
