Egypt: Ahmadinejad Busted

Egyptian blogger Zeinobia posts photographs featuring Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad kissing the hand of his former school teacher. “A 70-year-something old lady wearing black from top to down except the head scarf. Najidi kissed her hand and she kissed his head. Seriously it is a very respectable civilized act from gratitude and honor – gratitude from Najidi towards this lady who taught him and honor from the teacher with her student who became a president. But as the brain heads of the conservatives didn't like, well I like it and it turned out that many Iranians and also the West liked it,” she writes.
