Last week, Iranophobe Israeli creeps were overjoyed over country’s Guardian Council’s rejection of former president Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s bid for next month presidential election. Now they’re whining over the rejection of Azam Taleghani, 73, a former member of Iranian Majlis (parliament).
This year, 1,636 people including 137 women registered to become presidential candidates. The 12-member Guardian Council vetted all except six candidate who will contest the election next month.
On April 19, 2017, Jewish owned Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty published an article, entitled, No woman has ever run for Iranian President. Will Azam Taleghani be the First? penned by its correspondent Golnaz Esfandiari.
What is so special about Azam Taleghani? According to Golnaz Esfandiari, Taleghani had visited holy Auschwitz Camp and was horrified over the death of 6 million Jews by Nazis.
I’m sure after reading the sign at the front door of Auschwitz, Taleghani couldn’t have cried over the death of 6 million Jews. Because the sign says only 1.5 million Jews were killed by Nazis.
Esfandiari also claims that Taleghani said that antisemitism in Iran hurts country’s image in the world. If that’s true – why Iran has the largest Jewish population (30,000) in the region outside Israel? The Jewish community has a permanent member in Iranian Majlis and has seven synagogues in Tehran city alone. Jewish Queen Esther is buried in Iran and the tomb’s maintenance is paid by Iranian taxpayers.
“Article 115 of the Iranian Constitution says the president should be elected from among the religious and political rejal. Rejal, which comes from Arabic, means personalities,” claims Golnaz Esfandiari.
That’s BS. Iran’s first president Abolhassan Banisadr (1980-81) and Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (2005-2013) were non-religious academic. All other presidents were Shi’ite cleric but not involved in politics before. Political parties are not registered under Iranian Constitution.
The first presidential election in Iran was held on January 25, 1980. Since then, several women have held the post of vice-President of the country.
How many women Presidents United States had since 1788? NONE.
How many women vice-Presidents United States had during the same period of time? NONE.
Same goes for France, Australia, Mexico, Austria, Belgium, China, Cuba, Croatia, Soviet Union, Italy, Hungary, and dozens of other countries. Angela Merkel is first woman chancellor of Germany. The Zionist entity had only one woman prime minister – Golda Meir in its 69 years of occupation of Palestine. Kim Campbell became first and only prime minister of Canada for a few months in 1993.
