Iranian supreme mugwump Mohammed Khatami is apparently embroiled in very nasty sex scandal.
cue to the 4 minute mark.
But it is a sex scandal peculiar to a certain religion in a certain area of the world. It seems that during his visit to Udine, Italy Khatami touched a woman's hand.
Or maybe the hands of two women
However the key mysogynist demographic back home is not amused and Khatami's minions are in full damage control mode.
The Baran foundation of former Iranian president Mohammad Khatami issued a statement on Tuesday denying the cleric had intentionally shaken hands with women - as shown in footage of a recent trip to Italy broadcast on 'YouTube' - a gesture prohibited under Iran's strict interpretation of Islamic law banning all physical contact between men and women who are not related.
The statement indicated either the footage had been edited to give a false impression or else Khatami had shaken the hands of people in a crowd without realising they were female.
The footage shows the president, who has been severely criticised by the conservative press in Iran for his 'immoral behaviour', speaking to and then exchanging a handshake with women including Gianola and Cristina Nonnino, well known local producers of grappa, or husk brandy, in the northeastern Italian city of Udine during a visit last month.
"In the crowd, it is possible a hand was shaken but the former president is against any physical contact between the sexes," said Sadegh Kharrazi, a former ambassador who accompanies Khatami in his international tours.
Just keep reminding yourself that all cultures are equal and that these are people we can negotiate with.
