Earlier this year (May 7) the Foreign Minister of Iran, Manouchehr Mottaki, was invited to Sweden for talk with his Swedish counter-part Carl Bildt and Deputy Prime Minster Maud Olofsson. Olofsson made a little coup by holding her hand for Mottaki to shake it. He knew this was coming and refused - we don't do that in our culture. (That is shaking hands of infidel women). Nice one! Anyway, now this: Are the leaders of Iran really, really thinking someone would take them seriously?
