Columbia’s university Hamid Dabashi has compared Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Iran, to Lynndie England, below.


See my spoof interview with him on Iranian.com

    I didn’t find it funny ………. boring ……..

    Didn’t Professor Dabashi once advise you to swim in a bigger pond?

  3. Javan said,

    “Professor!” Dabashi or actually Dehbaashi is a complete jerk, he deserves more than what Peyvand beautifully presented. You need to live among culture oriented Iranians in New York city and has a little inteligence to figure out what a childish, jealous, mean individual this idiot is.

  4. T said,

    Totally agree with Javan.

    Very funny piece, good job. What went on in Abu Ghraib would be like playing with Barbie dolls in comparison to what I hope befalls that mean man.
