More Iran's oddities
Iran's religious authorities in the holy Shiite city of Qom have officially invited Cuba's revolutionary leader Fidel Castro, to convert to Islam, according to Hojatolislam Mohammad Reza Hakimi, quoted by Iran's Farda news agency. "I met Castro together with the Iranian foreign minister, Saiid Salili, and gave him some sacred Islamic texts translated into Spanish," said Hakimi, who recently returned from a government visit to Cuba.
They were a bit late. Had they invited Castro to convert before his pal Chavez appeared on the scene, he would have proclaimed Islam the official religion of Cuba and it wouldn't have been the first time he'd be selling his country.
Perhaps Ahmadinejad should invite Castro as Iran's Oil Minister after his third nominee was rejected by parliament.
