He told one of the girls to cover up, the report said.
"She responded by telling me to cover my eyes, which was very insulting to me," Beheshti said. So he asked her a second time to cover up and also to put a lid on what he felt was verbal abuse.
She hit the man of the cloth, and he hit the ground.
"I don't remember what happened after that," he said. "I just felt her kicks and heard her insults."


I suppose I shouldnít laugh, but thatís my reaction. Reports over the past few years of women lashing out donít much fit with the image of oppressed Muslim girls/women. Not exactly the majority taking action, but still very interesting.

Dear artemisia,

Love it - FUNNY, indeed.

And this:

"The girls may have put the "jab" into "hijab" . . . "

Regards,
John

Be careful, you (and possibly the woman after she decked the mullah) seem to be treading on religious grounds (in more ways than one). Cool

Dear teacheratlarge,

Not too many mullahs here in Santa Fe - I think I'll be safe.

Regards,
John
