Iran’s foreign minister could not stop smirking as he was grilled about his country’s record on women’s rights in a combative interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday.
Hossein Amirabdollahian told the host ‘this is not the way to conduct an interview’ after he insisted women in Iran had ‘all the necessary, required freedoms’ and accused Western media of fueling protests there.
It comes just two days after diplomats walked out of a speech given by the Iranian minister to the UN’s Human Rights Council in Geneva.

Sad to say, there’s not much that we can do to convince these men that they are wrong in their world view of women, women’s rights, and their role. As a little L libertarian, I can’t solve the world’s problems. BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), we can “help” them understand the issues. How about we make all their men PNG and they have to stay confined to their cesspool until they fix the issue. And, they shouldn’t have a role in UN “Human Rights” proceedings!
