Reason Enough to Bomb the Motherfuckers Back to the Stone Age 

Talk about a clash of cultures. If the land of the free were to forbid wanking during Ramadan, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Dr. Laura, the National Review, the Wall St. Journal, and thousands of right-wing bloggers would all be out of work for a month:
Deliberate masturbation during the month of Ramadan renders a fast invalid, Iranian Supreme Leader Sayyid Ali Khameini has ruled.

Khameini, who is Iran's most powerful political and religious figure, was asked on his
website: "If somebody masturbates during the month of Ramadan but without any discharge, is his fasting invalidated?"

"If he do not intend masturbation and discharging semen and nothing is discharged, his fasting is correct even though he has done a ḥarām (forbidden) act. But, if he intends masturbation or he knows that he usually discharges semen by this process and semen really comes out, it is a ḥaram intentional breaking fasting," the Iranian leader said, posting the reply on his website . . . .

On the website, Khameini also tells Iranians that only jockeys are permitted to gamble on horse races.
Because we are sick of hearing how bloggers like to piss and moan about the state of the world but never take concrete action to improve it, we believe it is vital for the American left to express its solidarity with the frustrated would-be snake-milkers of Iran and other benighted Islamic nations. Fellow bloggers! Will you join us in a regular nationwide circle jerk, each and every day of Ramadan, to protest fundamentalist oppression? Let's face it: you're going to be jerkin' the gherkin -- or rubbin' the nubbin -- anyway. Why not double your satisfaction by doing it in a good cause?

Or maybe you'd prefer to live in a world like this:
"In Islam's view, rulers and governments exist just to serve people and carry out works in the interest of the public and this is what God demands us, as authorities, to fulfill," Khamenei was quoted Tuesday telling Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
