The Good Muslim

Only a week ago, the Iranians referred to Right-wing Israeli politician Avigdor Lieberman as a “racist and war-mongering official”, and “the hardliner politician” appointed “to confront Iran’s nuclear program.”

Today they are referring to him as a “good Muslim.”

Now that’s versatility.

Is Avigdor Lieberman a “good Muslim”? An Iranian newspaper apparently thought so when they accidentally used a picture of the Israeli minister of strategic affairs to illustrate an article about Iranians being mistreated in the United States.

The article accused the US of discriminating against Iranians living in its territory, citing the example of an Iranian man who was fired from his American job due to his religious beliefs, according to the website Assar-Iran.

Lieberman’s trim beard is what apparently made an impression on the editors of Iranian weekly Ya-Lasrat when they decided to use his photograph in the article “Religious beliefs behind unjust dismissal of another Iranian in the US”.

The editors had no idea the picture they selected was none other than Israel’s vice prime minister, minister of strategic affairs, and head of the Israel Our Home party.

What’s the bet someone finds the editor’s head detached from his body some time over the next few days?
