British Ambassador's Dog Rescued During Attack

Filed under: AnglophiliaAttack!DogRescue

In Tehran, the British embassy was attacked by about 300 young militants.

As things get worse in Iran, many European countries are deciding whether or not to pull their diplomats out of the country.

Britain had already ordered its staff to leave.

But not before rescuing the British ambassador's dog.

A European diplomat returned to the destroyed embassy to find the dog.

The dog was found alive in the ransacked building, where everything was totally destroyed.

The diplomat destroyed:

"The place had been systematically ransacked, paintings were destroyed and furniture was broken. We have concluded that the attack had been extremely well coordinated by the authorities."

We're so glad that the dog was okay. He must've been so scared.

Also, side note… isn't attacking an embassy an act of war?

American Hiker Who Was Imprisoned In Iran Is Getting Married!

Filed under: PolitikLove LineInspirationSean Penn

Such wonderful news!

Back in 2009, American hikers Joshua Fattal, Shane Bauer, and Shane's fiance Sarah Shourd were sent to prison by Iranian police on charges of trespassing and suspicion of being American spies.

Then in 2010, Sarah was released, but both Shane and Joshua were kept in prison until September 2011, when they were freed thanks to the effort of Amnesty International, the prisoners' families, other human rights organizations, and Sean Penn.

Now Shane and Sarah have announced that they're getting married (above), and we are so happy to hear it!

Their strength through this lengthy, horrific situation is incredibly inspiring to us!

Iranian Actress Sentenced To Ninety Lashes

Marzieh Vafamehr lashing

A barbaric decision has been made in Iran, one that definitely does not sit well us.

Iranian actress Marzieh Vafamehr has been sentenced to one year in jail as well as ninety lashes for her work in the Australian film, My Tehran for Sale.

The film, which addresses social alienation, artistic repression, and drug use in Iran, shows Marzieh with a shaved head and without a headscarf.

The technicality behind her sentencing is that she worked on a film whose shooting didn't have the required permit, but the filmmakers swear that claim is baseless.

Director Granaz Moussavi states:

Iran Ban Glamorous Haircuts & Necklaces For Men

They're at it again!

Last year, Iran issued a catalog of Muslim-approved haircuts, but now they're taking it a step further by banning all glamorous hairstyles and even necklaces.

To make sure the new rules are enforced, the country has trained around 70,000 fashion police who will patrol the streets of Tehran.

And we thought Joan Rivers was bad!

On Tuesday he led a prominent group of US Muslims to appeal for Iran freeing Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, who were taken into custody on the Iran-Iraq border. They are charged with espionage.

Former boxers be getting involved with geo-political affairs!

We're Not In The Town, Anymore! Ben Affleck In Talks To Direct Iran Thriller

ben affleck in talks for iran thriller

Looks like Ben Affleck's directing job on The Town gave him some serious points with Warner Bros, cause they've got another project for him…a bigger one.

Affleck is currently in talks with WB to direct Argo, a political thriller set up by George Clooney and his producing partner, Grant Heslov.

The project is based on a Wired Magazine article, and it's about a "stranger-than-fiction CIA rescue operation during the occupation of the American embassy in Tehran in 1979, when six U.S. diplomats were held hostage."

As it happened, the CIA set up a plan where a fake "Hollywood film crew" would go on location in Iran…but really they'd be there to rescue captives from the country.

Sounds exciting to us! And given Affleck's track record with acting directing, we're thinking he could be a very solid choice for this project.

Are U intrigued by this project? Do U think Ben Affleck's directing skillz will do the story justice?
