Fars:"MP Blames Zionist Lobbies for Ban on Hijab in Azerbaijan's Schools"

You can't be really informed about what is going on the world without reading Iranian news sites. In the following article, we learn that the reach of The Lobby is very long:
A prominent Iranian lawmaker blasts Azerbaijan's decision to ban the Islamic code of dressing for schoolgirls, saying that the move was made under the pressures of the Zionist lobbies.

Pointing to the influence of the Zionist lobbies on the US, and the US military presence in Azerbaijan, Rapporteur of the Islamic Revolution fraction at the Iranian parliament Hamid Rassayee said these lobbies had a hand in the approval of the ban on the observation of Islamic code of dressing, Hijab, in Azeri schools.

"Americans have a military buildup and base in Azerbaijan and they influence Baku's decisions," Rassayee stated, adding, "The ban on Hijab in education centers is a move based on the decision and will of the Zionist and American lobbies since the Islamic Hijab can endanger the interests of the US and Israel."

He criticized Baku's officials for obeying the Zionist lobbies, and noted, "Always, we have witnessed that the country's leaders and authorities act in accordance with the policies, aspirations and instructions of these lobbies."

Last month, Azerbaijan's government refused to lift a ban on Islamic veil or Hijab despite angry public protests against the controversial decision.

Azerbaijani officials have been preventing Muslim schoolgirls wearing headscarves from attending schools for a month since the ban was implemented.

Islamic groups and rights activists expected the government to end the ban in the New Year and hundreds of people staged a demonstration in Azerbaijan's second largest city of Ganja late in December and called on the government to overturn the decree. They also chanted slogans against the anti-Islamic law. [...]
That'll teach it. According to an IRIB headline: "'Iran to unveil new bio-implants.'" Read that one if you dare. Another IRIB article features some Ahmadineblab:
IRI President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday that the main problem of the human society today was the way a few governments manage the world.

President Ahmadinejad made the remark in a meeting with the visiting Uruguayan Parliament Speaker Ivonne Pasada.

“The era in the global management characterized by monopoly and expansionism has come to an end,' the President said.

Ahmadinejad noted that adhering to principles such as justice, freedom and mutual respect can bring nations closer to one another. [...]
According to ISNA: "Iran successfully test fires upgraded 'Hog' missile system":
Iran successfully test fired mid-range surface-to-air upgraded Hog missile system to protect its sensitive areas.

The operation was carried out near Khondab nuclear center in central Iran.

The missile system has reportedly received warm test and hit the objectives. [...]
It "received warm test"? My suspicions about where North Korean journalists moonlight are confirmed.
