Another Iranian to be stoned to death

“The U.S. and the European powers will also need to tone down their rhetoric about human rights inside Iran…The legal ban in December 2002 upon the barbaric custom of stoning some criminals to death is trumpeted by diplomats as a triumph of the EU's approach, but it is misleading since the practice was virtually dead in any case.”

---Roger Howard, in Antiwar.com

Hajieh Esmailvand has been convicted of adultery and orders have been given to stone her to death on December 21.


p.s. Lest I disappoint the Iranian reader, and so that there is no misunderstanding, let me add that I consider Amnesty International one of the most morally corrupt institutions on earth.
