No, not really

Reader comment on item: Understanding Post-Mubarak Egypt
in response to reader comment: And you claim to be a nice guy?

I don't claim to be a nice guy, but, I haven't condemned you to prison, in fact, I was only trying to give you a bit of advice to keep you out of prison. And if you do end up in prison after you move to the Islamic Republic of Iran, don't bother hiring a lawyer. The mullahs will just chuck him in prison, too.

Sounds as though you'll fit in well there, though.

Yes, it's very easy for me to express my respect and admiration for the Dalai Lama. He preaches non-violence, respect for others and brotherhood across our diversity. Unlike the men you named, Yusuf Al Qardawi and Kazi Hussein Ahamd, who preach conquest, domination, hatred and violence.

Could that be why the Dalai Lama gets the "best press"? Or could it be his divergent views from those of Mr. Al Qardawi on the subjects of female genital mutilation and wife beating?

That was you I saw in London, wasn't it?

Be sure to post from Iran if they start allowing internet access again.
