Iran's mullah-run majlis (parliament) on Tuesday passed the outlines of a bill that imposes tougher punishments on those caught buying, selling or making alcohol.
Under the country's strict Islamic barbaric law, only members of non-Muslim religious minorities are allowed to make and drink alcohol. Trade in liquor is forbidden. (Iranian.ws, 07/05/05.)
OK, time to mix a Martini cocktail [editor's comment: Maybe I should come up with my own Martin(i) drink for the next Carnival of the Recipes?] and prepare for the demonstrations against the mullahs on July 9.
