Iranian Is Stoned To Death Despite ‘Ban’

From those defenders of the faith at the Agence France-Pressee:

People convicted of major crimes are routinely executed in Iran.

Iran stones to death adulterer

TEHRAN, May 5 (AFP) – A man found guilty of adultery has been stoned to death in an Iranian city, a top official told reporters on Tuesday, despite a moratorium announced by the judiciary on such executions.

The stoning was carried out in the northern city of Rasht during the Iranian month of Esfand which ended on March 20, judiciary spokesman Ali Reza Jamshidi said.

He said the woman involved in the case has "repented and so has not been stoned."

Under Iran’s Islamic law, adultery is still punishable by stoning, which involves the hurling of stones in public at a partially buried convict. A man is buried up to his waist and a woman up to her shoulders.

Convicts are spared if they can free themselves.

Aftab-e Yazd newspaper reported that a 30-year-old government employee identified only as "V", was stoned to death in a Rasht prison on March 5. Some Iranian news websites identified him as Vali Azad.

Five Iranians have reportedly been stoned to death in the past four years, including two men in Mashhad last December, despite a 2002 directive by judiciary chief Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahrudi imposing a moratorium on such executions

In August 2008, the judiciary said it has scrapped the punishment in Iran’s new Islamic penal code, whose outlines have been adopted by parliament but the details have yet to be debated by lawmakers

Ah, the blessings of Sharia.

A man is buried up to his waist and a woman up to her shoulders.

Convicts are spared if they can free themselves.

This apparently is their ‘appeals court.’

    If America had used stones instead of water, Arab fluent speaking, bowing Obama, wouldn’t have called his lynch team into action.

    • proreason says:

      Does he really speak fluent Arabic?

      The watchdog press says he speaks no foreign languages.

      Jerome Corsi says he recited the call to prayer fluently in a Slimes columnist’s office, but that doesn’t prove anything other than he memorized a prayer years ago.

    • canary says:

      Pro, yes. In his book, he claims at approx. 5 yrs old, he learned the language within 6 monthes. He claims he grew up with the Qu’ran and many religions his mother taught him. And a college friend quoted a muslim prayer Obama said in fluent Arabic, praising Allah. He had several college friends he hung with, and visited Pakistan with. And it is speculated his biological mother worked there for approx 5 years. After he made President he’s been much more open to other countries sucking up to them, with his pedigree. His father was muslim, before becoming athesist, and so one his step-father in Indonesia.

      One of the most bizarre things was his speech to the Jews on the Holocaust. It appears he saying that Hitler did his experiments to promote Science and good, though he doesn’t say Hitler and talks in abstract. The speech looks modern day as if he is explaining away Partial-birth abortion is for babies. Under Clinton, who started the abortion of full term babys, legislation was fought to at least provide the babys with anesthesia, but was not passed. It’s clear from what is going on, this is all about using babys’ body parts, tissue, blood, etc. The bible mentions in Deuteronomy the practicing of sacrificing baby’s and children, and God condemned those nations. Deuteronomy is amazing in how many laws, aside the ten commandments that is in our court laws today. My son just read Chapter 28 in bible school, and I looked it over, and it describes so much of the world today.
      Anyways, I read Obama Holocaust speech on the Democratic Jewish site, and was amazed and the positive comments about it, and stuff that Obama’s wife had Jewish background, but Obama said during the campaign that was a smear tactic. So, apparently, he is just a habitual liar, that know one really knows. I doubt his Christianity. In his book, he describes people telling him he needed to go to church so finally he did, and had a moment of feeling hope. Early on in the campaign, it was that he was not much of a church attender. I think he just went for those few times. Marriage, etc. But, then he thought to present himself as a regular goer, and the Rev. Wright b.s. web of lies.

    • canary says:

      Well, Pro, maybe Obama was lying in his Dreams book about learning it in 6 monthes (chapter 2) I saw a link that his 1st grade teacher in Indonesia said he struggled in learning it. (?) Chapt 2 his mom, was concerned about his lack of morals and dishonesty and moved him back to Hawaii) Here is a link that gives some excerpts, like attacking the little girl, (not the full chapter) Exerpts from other chapters (6 or 7) he tells of Marcus angry at him (Obama) for telling a “double-lie”, but this has excerpts from the same chapter. His drinking problem, 40 stay awake binge, laughing at Mexican maids for having to clean up their mess. His girlfriend, Regina seemed to really see through him, accused him of being all about himself, other’s having to clean up his messes (heh heh) There is an excerpt where he tells Regina that he was named after his grandfather who was muslim, and that his name is Arabic. Chapter 2, his memory and quoting, is unrealistic just like these later in life. In chapter 2 he said that he wrote all this down starting his first day in Indonesia at 5, and there is no way he could write Chapter 2 at age 5, but that’s his excuse for his memory in chapter 2. I truly think his book was meant to be a screen play, as he was in the school theater. The book is a double-lie.

      I feel the Schools signing a contract to front him money for the rest of his book to be abridged, recently, a conflict of interest, and close to more bribary. And it’s so obvious it can’t be truthful.

      I deleted the link, because it is not as damaging as the original book, and made to make him look better. This might be the abridged version he’s selling to schools. I’ll be looking for a used copy at a garage sell. But, I refuse to buy it at Walmarts, where I sneak peaks. I wonder if Obama has copyrights to the original version and will not produce it anymore? Probably has his IT people going after every original.

    • proreason says:

      canary, I honestly think The Moron is so used to lying that he can’t tell the difference.

      He thinks everything is relative anyway and if he paints a verbal picture that persuades people to go the direction he knows they should go, since he is so much smarter than anybody who has ever lived, then whether or not the verbal picture is accurate or not is the least important thing.

      I believe he really thinks he is above all that petty nonsense. He is indeed the Leader and whatever he says becomes the truth by default.

      And all this while he reads words other people have written.

      The guy is really mentally ill.

      I wouldn’t compare what he has done so far to the horror that Hitler and Stalin caused, but from the perspective of megalomania, he is the same as them.

  2. Right of the People says:

    I guess stoning is just too much fun for these savages to give up.

    Explain to me how a woman even has a remote chance of “freeing herself” under the circumstances, curious minds want to know?

  4. catie says:

    Yet there are many liberals who feel that it would be “okay for Muslims in their little enclaves to have “Sharia” law”. My friend’s husband is from England and most of his family still lives there. They are worried that there are many in the government who would be okay with Sharia in the UK. Man, can you imagine burying Bill Clinton to his waste?

    • Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:

      No but I can imagine burying BJ Bill IN his waste! Actually, that degenerate might be into that.

    • jobeth says:

      Catie, there are certain cases in the UK where Shiria law is NOW accepted. They ok it for certain situations for the muslims.

      At least your friend’s husband’s family is worried. My own very conservative Brit husband’s very LIBERAL (American version of liberal) family don’t even see a problem.

      In a country where you can’t take a photo without getting a muslim in it (London), and where Muslims fill many of the local government positions, they (his family) will argue and get mad when you tell them they have reason to be afraid for the UK.

      Heads planted firmly in the sand…with their rear ends fully exposed of course. Ready for the…..

      I don’t know how my very conservative husband came from a family who is so liberal.
      He is a firm conservative. Amazing!

    • proreason says:

      The birth rate for native Europeans in every country in Europe, including England, is below the level from which any population has ever recovered.

      In England, it is something like 1.4 to 1.6 per person, whereas the rate for Muslims is 6 or 8 to 1.

      Unless there is some very significant action along the lines of expelling all Muslims including citizens, all European countries will be Muslin within a few decades. It’s a statistical near-certainty.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      And it came to pass that in the days after the white man, the city fell into ruin and the evil technology that the current population said was a “creation of the devil” was no longer in, or of any use. The once bustling subway system, known as the “the tubes” which carried busy Londoners to and from work, tourists to places of interest and bargain-hunters from the shops were now all converted into spaces for living. Food was scarce, the population having exploded into phenomenal numbers and resulting in rampant pestilence and starvation. People avoided London now. Big Ben, it’s once magnificent face had somehow been relieved of its hands. Buckingham Palace, gutted of all finery and therefore the history of the British monarchy and its civilzation, was just an empty, windowless shell.

      The place was unrecognizable. No vehicles moved about, no craft plied the waters of the Thames, save the occasional sailing skiff, reminiscent of the Nile at the turn of the last century.

      And thus, this is what Islam had brought to England, Europe and the West. Once the most powerful force in the land, that produced more, accomplished more, raised up man more than had ever been seen on the face of the Earth. Yet all its ancestors gone. Wiped off the face of the planet by the “religion of peace” and the passing of law that any and all white people should be killed as they are the face of the devil.

      There were no skilled craftsmen, save the small, hut-living people who could fashion a thing or two, especially with basic casting and metallurgy skills to fashion firearms. They were prevalent in the times of the “holy wars” when Allah’s main wish was to rid the Earth of white people (Praise be to Allah).

      And yes, it was better. No noisy machinery. No cluttered streets with all those nasty white people speaking that funny sound, smelling of perfume and loving the primitive practice of bathing. So selfish. So ignorant of the word of Allah (praise be his name).

      Achmed looked around and quietly imagined what it must have been like with their flying machines and ships and four-wheeled conveyances. How funny he thought it all must have looked. He was grateful for his prayer mat and goatskin water canteen. He indeed, had everything.

    • jobeth says:


      We and a friend who came by today were talking about this very thing.

      The muslim vs European birth rate alone is going to be what buries Europe.

      Nearly all the countries are so infiltrated with muslim office holders with no end in sight due to the wusses who are the “old” Europeans who are too blind or stupid to see what is happening, and the birth rate. They are only a few years from a complete take over.

      Spain is expected to be the first to fall with a (true) Spanish birth rate falling below 2 children/couple. Islamic birth rates are far above that.

      If anyone believes that the muslims don’t have this very issue in the forefront of their plans needs to read what’s on this site.

      Basically we need to only follow the birthrate. Europe is falling and nearly completely down. Can America be far behind?

      We MUST fight this thing and not allow America to follow the sheep in Europe.

      Kinda scary that France, once holder of the seat of power in Euope, will be a mecca-facing dogmatic slum in 25 years, with the rest of Europe to follow. Never thought I’d see that in my lifetime.

    • Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:


      What scares me is that the US is going to be expected to pull Europe’s *** out of the fire, for the third time, over this. They made their own mess and once again we will be called upon, and expected, to save them. That pisses me off. I say we let the other signatories in NATO handle it for a change in return for all they’ve done for the US as of late. Let’s see how that works out for them.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      Well, historically speaking that may be the case. But, remember, everyone hates a winner and even in the earliest days to the end of WWII, when US troops put down their plowshares, shovels and pencils and went to war over there. The expression in Britain was “Overpaid, oversexed and over here”, I think it was.

      My point is, anti-American sentiment is neither new nor unique but everyone calls on us to clean the litterbox. This time, there are certainly parallels, when in the late 30’s the US military was but a skeletal force and 90% of our equipment was outdated and/or in disrepair. We will approach that again and I have no idea how long it would take to mass a standing army to fight the next religious war or wars.

      Conversely, good luck trying to get 18 to 30 year olds to sign up en masse a la 1941. Not to mention the resources needed to equip them properly. I doubt the sitting government has any clue as to the actual needs of the military at all. At least Roosevelt tolerated and listened to his military experts and understood the time it would take to build up to it.

      This class of drunken preppies we have in power now? They would be spending more time blaming each other and looking for fault as to why it all went wrong before any significant action could take place to do anything. So in that regard, I fear for the nation because, should the balloon go up, we will have roughly half of our citizenry unable to comprehend what’s happening, much as is the case now, and also would take to the streets to yell and scream that “It’t not OUR war” and that simply brings me to the desire of all the flower-power, anti-US Jane Fonda types to up and die already.

      No…I’m not a war monger but I understand that as long as there are more than one person on Earth, there will be hostility. It’s human nature, apparently and we, as a race, except when adhering to our core values, and even then, can’t seem to control ourselves.

      As my mom was known to say about “Christians”….in reference to their “reverence for God”; “Praise Him on Sunday……Damn Him all the rest of the week”.

      If the smelly people take over, we will have many decades of suffering and oppression against any non-muslims. Sadly, the average liberal thinks that muslims drink from the same trough as they and have no real concept of their upbringing and that every time a muslim is talking to them, they are simply TOLERATING the infidel in their own way. It’s like chats between Protestants and Catholics, in a way.

      I have met few people who are actually and truly tolerant. But more often than not, those same people also have stood for very little, don’t defend themselves in an argument even if they are right and have little ambition.

      More to the point…..it’s in our genes to side with those we think most alike and even then, there are disagreements and even nasty arguments. I chalk that up to the complexity of the brain, emotions, intellect (or the lack thereof) and instinct. Right up front is the survival instinct. Some have it more than others.

      But I see a religious war looming on the horizon that we have already lost…muslims vs. Christian and I’m looking at it from a historian’s viewpoint in the future as events unfold. Violence is to be expected, right along with all the arguments, sub-arguments, side stories of civilized acts in wartime, etc etc etc. Call it the “human condition”.

      Is it inevitable? Perhaps not. But I have yet to read any history of humans with such differing viewpoints ever living peacefully together. It has not happened for any length of time in the history of the world. Sure, sometimes it’s a matter of degree but it seems to me that it’s as sure a thing as thunder follows lightning.

    I’m lookin’ at the photo and wondering .. do they hang these folks before they bury them and stone them???

    Does the Agence France-Presse make up news and photos like their American counterparts?

    No doubt that these practices are inhumane; but the photo doesn’t match the story (unless they flew the philandering dude in by helicopter while dangling at the end of the rope around his neck that’s pointing skyward).

    I’m thinkin’ I saw this clip in a movie or somethin’?!

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      Yeah, that’s actually “Tuco” in the new remake of “The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly”. Obama, as “Blondie” (Clint Eastwood) is over, off frame up in a rise watching and since he got the reward money for turning in the wanted adulterer, he will save him at the last second….or….not.

      A real cliffhanger, human-interest and action flick sure to go straight to YouTube.

    • MinnesotaRush says:

      Or, maybe the rope was supplied by his buddies with a helicopter. You know .. he’s buried up to his waste; but goes free if he can get out. Voila’ .. his buddies with a rope and a hell-uvva-copter.

      Lights! Camera! Action!
