LEG-CROSSING SWEDISH AMBASSADOR ANGERS IRAN

Perhaps Columbia University and other ivys will honor Ahmadinejad again in light of this latest progressive stance. And Queers for Palestine can do a rendition of These Boots Are Made for Walkin’ before Ahmadinejad calls for their public hanging on the gallows in Union Square.

The leftist lapdogs at the Atlantic Wire were wildly quick to explain away this Islamic savagery:

“Pointing the soles of the feet towards someone is impolite because the soles of the feet (shoe) are considered dirty, closest to the ground, closer to the devil and farther away from God. When in the presence of Muslims, be careful not to raise or cross your legs in such a way that the sole of the foot faces others in the room.”

If only The Atlantic would move their HQ to Tehran (and take Sully with ya, and all the students who applaud him, and all the leftists who laud him, and …..)

“Leg-crossing Swedish ambassador angers Iran” The Local (thanks to Robert Spencer)

Sweden’s newly appointed ambassador in Tehran has reportedly upset Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad – by crossing his legs during a meeting.

According to Iranian website Asriran.com the Swedish ambassador, Peter Tejler, committed the apparently offensive act after a ceremony in which he presented his credentials to the president.

It is unclear, though, whether the president himself was offended by the ambassador’s cross-legged pose or whether this was, in fact, the interpretation of events by Asriran.com. Photos from the meeting show Ahmadinejad himself sitting cross-legged, too.

Armenian website Panorama translated the Iranian website’s report, which explains that crossing one’s legs “contradicts international diplomatic norms”.

The report continues: “Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, for his part, himself crossed his legs in response to the impoliteness of his interlocutor.”

    Don’t the Cambodians have some kind of leg crossing fetish?

    I can’t recall – but some other collection of rat-people have a similar sensitivity to leg crossing.

    I’m offended when people pass gas as they cross their legs … and then laugh about it.

    Gee, crossing your legs offend them, yet sodomizing little boys for the sole purpose of their deprived sexual gratification is ok by allah????

    There is but one God and allah is NOT God, and muhammad is a prophet of satan

    BFH there’s a fortune to be made in bottom-of-the-shoe decals for windows and doors. Hell, make bumper stickers and t-shirts. As usual, 2% off the top for me.

    When I first read about this story last night, my first thought was:
    Cross, crisscross, and cross again. Over and over until all those damn muzzie heads explode.

    These people are so damn ridiculous. Why doesn’t the West pick a day where all of us infidels do all the relatively benign things at once that drives muzzies to murderous distraction? Make the whole lot of them go on a rampage with leg crossings, upturned soles of shoes, and waving around Mo cartoons.

    Then be ready to fight back with a serious smack down. I’m so tired of his charade. Jesus, where are you?

    aha I have it

    mo cartoons for the bottom of your shoes!!

    So have them imprinted in the sole of the shoe!!

    and unlike Xavier, I will be happy with just a 1% of sales (need it to pay my tax increases so others can have obama phones).

    So, what does that say about them bouncing their faces off the ground, closest to allah (satan), five times a day? They are ALL insane. They are a plague on humanity and should be exterminated. Because like it or not, this is a very critical it’s us or them situation.

    So I’m guessing a picture of moohammed on my soles wouldn’t go over well either?

    So let me get this straight,everything is about them, and nothing they do that offends us matters, am I getting this right you pedophilic goat humping spouse abusing knuckledraggers?

    and yet the left believes we need to appease them and be their friends while they disregard what offends us, and their human rights abuses that the left champions itself on……….the left are as ignorant and as insane as the knuckledraggers.
