Iranians still see BMW and Mercedes Benz as one of the most decisive signs of wealth.

This is why the M3 is the Persian Trans-Am.

It slightly more complex than the headline suggests... but by all means proceed with assumptions and platitudes.

I know a Persian with an M3.

So I'm really getting a kick out of that reply.

So? A Supreme Leader is just a regular leader with tomatoes and sour cream.
 
2013-04-29 03:12:35 PM
they spent an entire article trying to tell us that the leader of Iran likes to ride in a BMW and somehow that is a problem ?

Maybe the Times of Israel can answer a car question I have always had.

Why do A LOT of Jewish folks drive Mercedes ? I would think that particular brand of automobile would be less popular.

hypocrisy in politics and religion!!!????  what a scoop!

An Israeli opinion about the Iranian taco supreme is critical?  I am the very definition of surprised.

Lame beg for hits is obvious, fark.

He's clearly history's greatest monster.  Much worse than Hitler and his People's Car.

People in a position of power or influence are always on the take.
Why do you think Putin is a billionaire? The KGB doesn't pay THAT well.

Times of Israel publishing a negative opinion piece on Iran's leader is now important apparently.

Ah, the wheel within the wheel as seen by the Prophet Ezekiel in his vision of the All Highest!

Ezekiel I: 16

16The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel, although ye white walls would verily have cost ye extra talents.

It is written: I have seen princes walk, and beggars ride.

19And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up for mighty is the power of the four-wheel drive with individual suspension. 20Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

I recall the leader of a certain highly profitable Eastern cult justifying his large personal fleet of Rolls Royces by pointing out that Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday or whatever it was.

Personally, I suspect a donkey would be the equivalent of a mid-compact, compared to the alternatives such as a chariot and four horses, a chariot drawn by lions, tigers, zebras, or elephants,  riding on a palanquin or on a camel, or even riding in the humble goat cart, but you never know.

Religious leaders seem to have a tendency to pad the expense accounts with vestal virgins, choir boys, and other little luxuries, so you never know what God thinks because he is too busy destroying mid-Western towns in his ire over the doings of Castro or Christopher street to make an explicit comment, except for that lightning strike when the Pope announced his retirement for health reason. Honestly, I don't think God can complain. He looked like death warmed over. Nosferatu looked more hale.

 As I always say, the Good Lord doesn't seem to be able to hit the side of a Cathedral with a stream of  pax vobiscums any way, so it is just as well if he does not shoot off an angrey Letter to the Times and the Mores everytime he is POed.

Last thing I heard they were trying to reduce subsidies on gasoline a skootch. Because selling gasoline at 15 cents a gallon didn't seem to be working out for them (except politically, of course--weddings and food are also heavily subsidized by the Louis Quatorzian Petro-State).

In other words, who needs sanctions when you've got politicians dumber and more pandering than the GOP or the Conservatives?

Paul Krugman would be appalled. Or beheaded. Depends on how fleet of foot he is.

The Israelis are just pissed that the Germans are making better cars than they can.
