Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and Isabelle Adjani offended by an Iranian newspaper

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and Isabelle Adjani were called “prostitutes” by the Iranian daily Kayhan, after the first lady of France and the famous French actress had signed a petition for releasing an Iranian woman sentenced to death for adultery.

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy joined an international campaign that aims to save Sakineh-Ashtiani Mohammadi, an Iranian woman aged 43 years, mother of two children, sentenced to death.

Mohammadi-Ashtiani Sakineh is accused of cheating her husband and for attempting to kill him – risking the death penalty for the “crimes” she committed – and could be killed with stones in a public market.

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy – the third wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy – has signed an international petition along with other VIPs, demanding the release of Mohammadi-Ashtiani Sakineh.

Last week the former supermodel said: “I just can’t see what good could come out of this macabre ceremony, whatever the judicial reasons put forward to justify it.”

Addressing Sakineh directly in an open letter, Ms Bruni-Sarkozy wrote: “Why shed your blood and deprive your children of their mother? Because you have lived, because you have loved, because you’re a woman, and because you’re an Iranian? Everything within me refuses to accept this.”

But Kayhan (which means ‘Universe’ in English), the Iranian daily newspaper which acts as a mouthpiece for the country’s ultra conservative Islamic regime, has now accused 42-year-old Ms Bruni-Sarkozy of being a hypocrite.

Entitled “French prostitutes join the human rights protest,” the article singles out Ms Bruni-Sarkozy and Isabelle Adjani, the French actress and friend of the First Lady who is also calling for Sakineh’s release.

Kayhan claims it supports the “ideology of the Islamic Revolution” but it’s controlled by the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The Iranian state television also violently attacked Carla Bruni-Sarkozy for supporting Sakineh Mohammadi-Ashtiani, saying the first lady of France is using this to try to justify her own immorality.

Elysee Palace had no official reaction to these attacks from the Iranian media, but a close friend of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy said that she is “deeply shocked” by the media attack.

Sunday, a woman wearing makeup and dressed like women sentenced to death in Iran, participated in a protest held in Paris, during which demonstrators demanded the release of Sakineh Mohammadi-Ashtiani.
