Not a Pan Arabian story, but check out this article about the Iranian woman who despite being elected to office has been barred from taking up the role by religious zealots.

These men are utterly pathetic if they cannot control themselves. And incredibly shallow too with their obsession with both a woman's appearance and sex generally.

Didn't the new Pres/PM declare he wanted to look forward and be part of the rest of the world?

Well in his defense, he is after all just one man and to bring some form of change in the already well-settled-in bureaucracy / old mindset, he will need some time and of course stories like these, to make an example of!

Oh of course, I'm sure he'll make sweeping changes in no time with the full support of the entire country

well maybe not the entire country but hopefully most of them, he is after all elected by them
from what I can gather from the few Iranian friends that I have, a lot of people in Iran are optimistic about him and are hoping for good things
me...I just want the pre 1979 Iran back
and btw, on a more serious note, the more Iran shifts towards international acceptance, non-radical foreign policies etc, the better it will be for the area in general *cough*syria, iraq, lebanon*cough*

ha! touche mo capitan!

lost cause I am afraid
the only revolution they will see is a french one and not in the very distant future from the look of things since the economic divide is HUGE and keeps on growing
and the army not willing to let go of power even when they are not in power since they are the largest consumer of the annual budget and what little is left is eaten up by the corrupt politicians and the interest on the loans to world banks etc
value of rupee has declined by 25% in the past one year if you can believe that
