Full Metal Saturday: Mozhan Marno

I know a number of my blogging friends have already posted their weekend "Rule 5" entries. But better late than never! Please check out Mozhan Marno. In the picture she is attending premiere of Traitor, last August 28, in New York City. Ms. Marno is currently starring in The Stoning of Soraya M., so given the events of the last two weeks, I thought her selection for this week's entry would add a momentous touch.

From Gossipsauce:
The Stoning of Soraya M., based on French-Iranian journalist Freidoune Sahebjam’s 1994 novel of the same name, is the devastating true story of a woman who was stoned to death in her small Iranian village when she refused to grant her abusive husband a divorce. Played with exquisite grace, depth and nobility by Mozhan Marno (Traitor), Soraya isn’t a simple victim, she is a sacrificial lamb, a testament to the inequality of women in the Islamic world, the dynamics of mob rule and the villainy intrinsic to tyranny and totalitarianism.
I saw some stuff on the film earlier in the week, for example, Christian Toto's, "The Stoning of Soraya M.: An Unflinching Look at the Unconscionable." So timely!

Also, check out Phyllis Chesler, "
A Frenzy of Honor Killings."

Now, for the regular weekend roundup! For starters, check out the awesome Carol at
No Sheeples Here!. Her latest doozy is "Full Metal Jacket Reach-Around For Saturday, June 27, 2009." Not miss Pat in Shreveport as well, "Rule 2 Saturday."

Also, Smitty at The Other McCain gets things going with
Feeling Mugged Just Right About Now." And the Daley Gator's got "Saturday morning Linkgasms for everyone! EXCEPT sell-out RINOS! They can go “F” themselves!"

Added bonus: TrogloPundit, "Rule 2 Sunday: How I very nearly stopped doing these once-a-week roundups, and why, and why I didn’t."

Great post, Donald! :-)

Stoning of so called adulterous women in certain muslim countries is quite common, when women there want divorce or have been raped.

It's a barbarous practice.

Thanks for the link.

Somehow I don't think this movie is going to be well received by our friends on the left.
