Iranian women can watch football now

Good news for Iranian football fans: Iranian women can watch national and important football matches in stadiums/
As you may recall, I mentioned in one of my previous posts that Iranian women were strongly advised not to attend football matches here.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad here Monday said that Iranian women can watch national and important matches in stadiums.

In his directive, Ahmadinejad urged Physical Education Organization (PEO) Head Mohammad Aliabadi to outline an appropriate plan and give women the best stands of the stadiums where national and important games are played.

"Contrary to propaganda, experience has proven that the massive presence of women and families in public sites has created an ethical atmosphere," read the letter.

The president ordered the PEO to do the job in association with Interior Ministry.

I wish he would make up his mind. First he wants the women hidden away, covered up. Now it's good publicity to have then out in public. And for what? Football! If he thinks this will win him any points with the free world, he is wrong. We all know what he really thinks.

They should show up in bikinis! ha

No worries...we westerners won't have the joy of watching a football game in Iran surrounded by beautiful Iranian girls! They are only allowed to watch "national" games! No international games! Nada de nada! Not even against your friends the Mexicans!

Source: IRNA. It says it all about how the regime is trying to save its face right in a moment in which the international community is focused on its nuclear program...

I agree, Stefania. Ahmadinejad has lost his face long time ago. It won't be news like that will save his evil regime!

Ayatollahs are protesting already...

Members of the clergy say it is wrong for men and women to look at each other's bodies, even if they have no intention of taking pleasure from it.
