Iran Sentences 3 Protesters To Death

From BBC News:

Iran ‘sentences three to death’

Saturday, 10 October 2009

Three people detained after June’s disputed presidential election have been sentenced to death, Iran’s Isna news agency reports.

The judgements are preliminary and must be confirmed by a higher court, Isna says. Full names have not been given.

So far the only named opposition activist reported as having been sentenced to death over post-election protests is Mohammad Reza Ali Zamani.

The unrest was triggered by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s re-election.

On Saturday Isna quoted Zahed Bashiri Rad, a justice ministry official, as saying: "Three people who were accused (for their role) in the post-election incidents have been sentenced to death."

Referring to the three using only initials, Mr Rad said "MZ" and "AP" had been convicted for ties with the Kingdom Assembly of Iran, a banned monarchist group, and "NA" for links with the People’s Mujahideen, another group advocating the overthrow of the Islamic republic.

On Thursday, an Iranian reformist website reported that Mr Zamani, 37, had been sentenced to death. It is unclear whether he is the "MZ" mentioned by Isna…

Most of those detained have been released, but about 200 remain behind bars and some 110 have been put on trial.

Where is the world’s outrage?

Surely, the Nobel Laureate, Mr. Obama will use his high moral standing to put a stop to this.

    Obama’s too busy figuring out how to punish tea party protestors.

    Ah yet another story about the “religion of peas” sorry I mean “peace”. How soon will “The One” bring this type of justice to our shores? We look to you for our guidance. Please pass the cool aid.

    I wonder who will rape them the night before execution, uh, I mean “temporarily marry.”

    Many of the guards are taught that a virgin will not go to heaven – it is common practice in Iran to have a Shi’ite temporary marriage ceremony between the female victim and guard, regardless of her refusal. Sometimes the guards put drugs into the last meals of the victims, to reduce their ability to fight the man off.

    And they are not above raping men, either.

    What an Islamic paradise.

      I’ve seen the midnight ‘donkey’ tapes of barnyard animal lust.
      No scruples or morals at all!!

  4. Client 9 says:

    These executions must be the “robust political debate” Nobel Laureate Barry H. Obama was referring to when discussing the Iranian election back in June.

  5. canary says:

    Obama won’t meddle in Iran’s crooked election, and doesn’t care about brutality on their civilians dying.
    But Obama is obsessed with Afganistan’s election, and cares about their civilians, but not the brutality of our troops dying.

    The U.S. will NOT do a damn thing with Iran because of this:

    1. Valerie Jarrett — Obama Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs. Ms. Jarrett, a product of two decades in rough-and-tumble “Chicago way” politics, and a 17-year friend of the Obama’s, is described as “the other side of Barack Obama’s brain.” Born in Iran, Jarrett, who speaks Persian, moved to the United States as a child. A product of an elite, private, New England boarding school, she is a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School.

    Jarrett served in the administration of Chicago Mayor Harold Washington (who, prior to his election, failed to file income tax returns for 19 years and during it maintained dubious Socialist ties) as well as in the scandal-ridden, current Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley. Her step-father, Vernon Jarrett was associated with Frank Marshall Davis, the youthful Barack Obama’s mentor from age 10 until college – a Chicago Communist Party (USA) member who moved to Hawaii from Chicago. Frank Marshal Davis is now immortalized in President Barack Hussein Obama’s “autobiography” as “Uncle Frank” — conveniently with no mention of his last name nor who he was.

    According to the Washington Post, Ms. Jarrett was for many years both Michelle and Barack Obama’s “tutor.” Virtually every mainstream media outlet has not only done an over-the-top puff piece on Valerie Jarrett (as they repeatedly have with Mr. Obama and his wife), but all agree that neither the President not Mrs. Obama makes a move without first consulting Ms. Jarrett. Ms. Jarrett was personally responsible for bringing self-described Communist Van Jones into the White House as President Obama’s environmental “Green Czar.” [1]
