Picture of the Week: The two faces of Ahmadinejad

Contrasting images of President Ahmadinejad

 

In a departure, this week we have two The Steeple Times pictures of the week. They were separately taken but both feature President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran. Whilst one shows a fawning television presenter interviewing this madman, the other illustrates a courageous lady sticking a finger up to him.

 

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran being interviewed by Piers Morgan on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight”

On CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, ahead of his visit to the UN General Assembly, Ahmadinejad was, according to the Daily Mirror, “not at all fazed” by the questioning from his interviewer. Given this rare opportunity, Morgan, instead of pussyfooting around, should have confronted this tyrant with better thought out questions than:

 

“You have two sons and a daughter, what would you do if one of them was gay?”

 

The world already knows Ahmadinejad’s bigoted views on homosexuality and Morgan should have realised that this former teacher would have prepared his answers to such. It would surely have been cleverer of Morgan to have hit his guest with something unexpected.

 

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran comes face to face with a lady courageous enough to stick her finger up to him

As a contrast, this morning on Facebook my friend Michael Marmol shared an image featuring Ahmadinejad in a setting he plainly hadn’t anticipated. Here, a young lady stands in front of the Iranian leader’s motorcade and publicly sticks her finger up to him. Captioned: “Courage, It is most awesome when you least expect it,” we only wish Morgan had taken this mantra onboard before agreeing to interview President “Ahmawackjob.”
