More Defense of Gender Apartheid in Iran

In a rare showing from the Huffington Post, Iran is actually criticized in the blogsophere. Shirin Sadeghi wrote an article about Iran's mistreatment of male nurses and female doctors, among other problems. It's quite shocking so I suggest you read it in full. But as usual, the Huffington Posters marched out in force to defend Iran in posts that ironically were tinged of "hasbara." Take a look:

(Note in the middle a claim that "women are torn to bits for holding a Torah at the Wailing Wall." That's a new one)

When in doubt, blame Israel.
