Iran is planning to sue Hollywood over the Oscar-winning "Argo" because of the movie's allegedly "unrealistic portrayal" of the country, Iranian media reported on Tuesday.
Several news outlets, including the pro-reform Shargh daily, said that French lawyer Isabelle Coutant-Peyre is in Iran for talks with officials over how and where to file the lawsuit. She is also the lawyer for notorious Venezuelan-born terrorist Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, known as Carlos the Jackal.
And in other news, the Islamic Republic's mullahs are upset that their President Ahmadinejad made skin contact with the mother of his "intimiate friend" the decesed quasi-dictator Hugo Chavez:
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was in tears last week when he brushed cheeks with the mother of president Hugo Chavez at the Venezuelan president’s funeral in Caracas, and clasped her hands, the Los Angeles Times reported.
And then came another upset – a torrent of Internet-circulated criticism from his foes within Iran’s ultra-conservative clergy. Mr. Ahmadinejad’s misdeed? Violating a tenet within strict Islamic societies that prohibits touching members of the opposite sex who are not relatives.
