Jerusalem Post: As Topical As Timely

After some brief three years and a half, the Jerusalem Post has finally caught up with us. They print an interview with a member of the Iranian Basiji militia and thus confirm what we reported (did I say three and a half years ago?) earlier:
In a shocking and unprecedented interview, directly exposing the inhumanity of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei's religious regime in Iran, a serving member of the paramilitary Basiji militia has told this reporter of his role in suppressing opposition street protests in recent weeks.

He has also detailed aspects of his earlier service in the force, including his enforced participation in the rape of young Iranian girls prior to their execution.
And here was I, thinking that men can't be forced against their will to have intercourse. But whatever. Maybe finally, at last, somebody maybe, perhaps will take notice.

Elsewhere, the publication of a guidebook for politicians, police and public servants on how to talk about Muslims and terrorism without implicating the religion of Islam was announced for the end of the year.

Edited to add:
