This is clearly an outrage. Iran tries to buy its way into a place then because they spent money, demands that place adopt Iranian customs.

"Iranian demands that female nurses don the hijab in response to Iran’s providing $1.2 million for funding of the new El Alto city hospital in Bolivia sparked a national outcry among women’s rights advocates within Bolivia. In an international teleconference in La Paz held between Bolivian President, Evo Morales, and Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to celebrate the hospital’s opening, nurses were shown wearing hijabs as part of their new uniform regulations."

Why wasn't this known before the deal was made?

Personally, if I had the money, I would give it to bolivia for hospitals and together we can tell Iran to @#$% itself.

Just another case of muslims trying to force their dark ages mentality on others.

Well isn't that just ridiculous. Iran really shouldn't be talking about people wearing hijabs, they already have an issue with that. For those of you who don't know, apparently Iranian police arrested someone who was allegedly hiding in a hijab to evade the police. Now men across Iran are posting photos of themselves online wearing hijabs, and the donning the hue of green associated with the reform party.

I don't completely agree with you.

I think it is the muslim religion that causes these issues.

If people in Iran were not muslim, I am sure most of them would be disgusted at what Iran is trying to do in the name of their religion.
