Those Danes Are At It Again
First they set off a firestorm by publishing a bunch of Mohammed cartoons, now another Danish group managed to get an ad making fun of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmedinejad published in the Tehran Times.
At first glance the advertisement placed in the Tehran newspaper on Wednesday seemed to be declaring support for the Iranian leader. Beneath an image of the hard-line president, there was a series of apparently sympathetic statements such as “Support his fight against Bush,” or “Iran has the right to produce nuclear energy.” However, on closer inspection things were not quite so benign: the first letters of each phrase when read from top to bottom spelt out the less than subtle insult “S-W-I-N-E.”
Let’s see what those nutty mullahs manage to stir up this time.
