Nazanin Afshin-Jam in UK

Nazanin Afshin-Jam arrived in UK today.

It is July and it was pouring down with rain all morning in London, yet everyone in our welcoming group was looking forward to meeting Nazanin. As always it was so Exhilarating to meet her, despite her long flight, she was so full of energy, so enthusiastic about her work and still so down to earth. After we picked up Nazanin from the airport, on the way back to her hotel, the clouds broke up and the sun even started to shine! so symbolic of how she inspires all Iranian pro-democracy and human rights activists.

Nazanin has been invited by the Confederation of Iranian Students in UK and will have a heavy schedule in the days ahead. I will write more about her events in the coming week.

Maybe we you could have used some eye-liner too, no?

She seems like a gracious young woman. I am proud to know her and call her an Iranian-Canadian. The future of a free Iran looks bright with people like you and for your efforts. Thnx for the pic

'May be we you ...'??!! Sounds like you lost your composure again. Not that too much envy and a chip on your shoulder has left you much composure in the first place Barmakid

Why do we care about Nazanin? Why has she been on those news programs? Is it because she's an activists with poignant ideas? Is it because she's supporting human rights? Or maybe it's because of her father's history? No, I think it's because she's extremely hot. Her ideas are banal, but her body is fantastic. It would be a shame to see her in hijab.

Nazanin seems to be a decent person with genuine ambitions, but she's nothing special when it comes to political dissidents; she was a model for God's sake! Oh but that's how she supported her self...bla bla bla.

But Azzy, seriously, hook me up. Tell her you know this Persian guy, he's 6'1" (I'm not actually 6'1", more like 5'9", but just tell her that) and he also double majored in political science and another unrelated major. Tell her I'm smart, handsome, and totally against child executions (unless the child in question is Hannah Montana:)) And make sure she knows I can cook some mean ghorme-sabzi.

Plus, you have a wife, no? How does your wife feel about you picking up an off-the-charts hot Persian girl from the airport? Tell us the truth Azzy:)

peace,
barmakid

p.s. She's really hot.

stop publishing this idiot's comments and he'll just go away. You're providing a platform for this moron and thats why he is mocking every thing and every one.

Azarmehr said...

Dont worry he is not impressing anyone, he is just showing himself up and people judge him by his own comments

barmakid said...

Oh come on...have a sense of humor; it was a light-hearted post.

Azarmehr said...

barmakid said...
