Iran:We Want an Apology!!

Recently Iran had demanded that President Obama apologized for past "crimes" committed against Iran by the USA. Now Iranian leaders want an apology from Hollywood over the movie "300". Don't they know that Hollywood supports terrorists?

Iran to Hollywood: Two thumbs down
Never mind that nuclear spat; can U.S.-Iran relations overcome the Mickey Rourke divide? Javad Shamaqdari, the art and cinema adviser to Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, on Sunday demanded an apology from a visiting U.S. film-industry group for what he called insulting treatment of Iran in the movies "300" and "The Wrestler." Iranians (and some reviewers) did not appreciate the depiction in "300" of their ancestors who fought against the Greeks in the battle of Thermopylae as evil, decadent, and effeminate. In "The Wrestler," Mickey Rourke plays a broken-down grappler battling a nemesis called The Ayatollah, who tries to choke him with an Iranian flag. Neither movie was exhibited in Iran.
