When a kiss becomes more than a kiss



Iran’s firebrand President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has embraced and liplocked Venezuela’s president Hugo Chavez; he has got fresh with a supporter; and (horror, horror) he has hugged and kissed a Jewish Rbbi. None of that bothered his country’s Islamists. But when he met his primary school teacher after 40 years, and shook and kissed the 70-year-old’s hand on Tuesday, all hell has broken loose.

Yeh point note kiya jaaye, your honour.”
