Stone him!

Heh:

The President of Iran has been accused of indecency after he publicly kissed an elderly woman who used to be his school teacher.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was photographed and filmed by state media stooping to kiss the woman’s hand and then clasping her arms in an embrace, at a ceremony yesterday in honour of Iranian teachers’ day.

According to sharia law, it is forbidden for a man to have any physical contact with a woman to whom he is not related.

“The Muslim Iranian people have no recollection of such acts contrary to sharia law during Islamic rule,” seethed the ultra-conservative Hezbollah newspaper, on its front page.
Meanwhile, the Spirit of Man plots his overthrow:
You see, the potential to overthrow the fascist Islamic clerics from inside of Iran is huge. No foreign military intervention is needed to topple this inhumane theocracy. All needed to achieve this goal is to encourage workers, students and teachers to do the job themselves and get the world and their people rid of this crazy regime. But how?

It may sound a bit like a far-fetched fantasy but it is do-able and I'd say it here: All needed to help unite these elements (workers, students, teachers) to oust the mad mullahs is to convince American government to spend the money it spends in Iraq in one day instead in Iran which can be equivalent to the salaries of thousands of those elements who are willing to break the back of mullahs by going on widespred strikes but don't do so out of fear for their families and the fact that their children, husbands or wives need food and supplies to survive the daily life.
[...]
Workers protested along with students and teachers this past Tuesday and it's showing that the need to move these people to the right direction is being felt more than ever. The United States government is the only possibility we've got to get rid of the regime in terms of having external support for our men and women who are suffering inside of Iran and many count on the US as a honest broker in this thing. We should not let this golden opportunity go this time!

...Nice idea, but I'm sure those in receipt of American largesse would lose all credibility, and thus be easy for the anti-Western elements to dismiss. In fact, were Dubya to give 'em a bung, they'd probably find themselves roundly derided and discredited in The Indie and Grauniad. Oh, and Auntie'd probably have something to say, too.

It would be great, though, if the Iranian citizenry were to overthrow the fanatics in power, purely on the grounds that they've ruined their country.

We could follow their cue.
