Iranian Newspaper Calls Madame Sarkozy a "Prostitute"

A state run newspaper in Iran (is there any other kind?) has called French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy a "prostitute."

This was after Madame Sarkozy spoke up in support of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, a 42-year-old woman sentenced to death for committing adultery. Initially, Ashtiani was to be stoned to death but an international outcry for the Iranians to reconsider that form of execution. Ashtiani will be hanged instead.

If Iran is prepared to execute their own women over a private matter why should we be surprised if they address the wives of foreign heads of state with public disrespect?

One can only hope this lights a fire under Nicolas Sarkozy. Imagine if the mullahs fell because they insulted a man's wife.
