Ahmedinejad: Happy Easter!

The news this morning is that Iran will let go of the 15 British servicefolk it's been holding. [Of course, this has nothing to do with the Iranian diplomat let go by "The Coalition" yesterday.] His "reason" for this gesture is interesting--a gift to British People on Easter. Hmmm...I wonder if any of the folks that have been fulminating from the "Islamic" point of view (kidnapping is Islamic?--because kidnapping is what it is, if you're not formally at war) would ever consider giving gifts to friends, neighbours, colleagues and others on non-Islamic religious holy-days...

PS, 4/5/07: Actually, I owe readers an apology. I was basing that comment on something I heard on NPR. The New York Times reports that he was talking about a gift on the birthday of The Prophet...oh, well, I guess he wouldn't think of a gift on someone else's holy day, either, huh?
