This entire story is a fitting metaphor for the Muslim world’s obsession with fake modesty.
There’s lots of fake modesty on the outside and corruption on the inside. Clerics blaming uncovered women for earthquakes and then molesting little boys. And other clerics overseeing a regime that punishes women for uncovering their hair, but legalizes prostitution as temporary marriage, that rapes virgins before executing them so that they don’t go to heaven and then hires an adult model to spread their insane propaganda while dressing her up in a Hijab that doesn’t actually cover her hair.
Muslim modesty is a farce. It’s an outward show of false piety concealing ridiculous amounts of corruption. And for that we go to Iran’s Press TV’s correspondent Edwina Storie.
PressTV, the official news outlet of the theocratic government of the Islamic Republic of Iran, has employed an Australian correspondent, Edwina Storie, who is a former “adult entertainment” model and big-boozing party girl.
Her behaviour, all perfectly lawful here in Australia, would be sufficient for her to be stoned to death in the theocratic and tyrannical regime that pays her to propagandise on their behalf.
One modelling site has dozens of racy images of Ms Storie with “tags” describing her work that would have any Mullah reaching for his stones. The descriptions include “porn movie,” “sex video,” “call girl,” “girl kneeling,” “erotic,” “sensual,” “mistress,” “affair,” “laying back,” “legs in air,” “seductress,” “sucking on finger,” “married man,” “office affair,” “secret rendezvous,” “cleavage,” “buttocks in air,” “arched back,” “body in air,” “busty,” “boobs,” “heels on bed,” “afternoon delight,” and “afterwork surprise.” Certainly it would be something of a surprise for Ms Storie’s work colleagues at PressTV.
I think VexNews is giving the Iranian propaganda outlet far too much credit. Iran does have internet access and even in a country run by Mullahs, 15 minutes of googling is a basic act of due diligence. And that is why it’s doubtful that Iran will fire Edwina Storie. Why would they? They knew it all along and their charade of being obsessed with the sexual rays of women’s hair is just that, a totalitarian means of control.
Muslim modesty isn’t modest. It’s about control and about maintaining the fiction that an Islamist society is more moral than any other kind. It’s not. It just uses tyranny and terror to enforce a facade of order in all spheres that makes it seem that way. But the actual system is not modest or honest or just. It is just tyranny wrapped in a Hijab.
The Iranian theocracy is utterly corrupt in every sense possible. Behind its sternness is every form of criminality and vice imaginable. And the same goes for Saudi Arabia and every country that claims to live under Islamic law. The stricter the law, the more corrupt its enforcers.
