Another Reason To Hate Them

Yes, Virginia, they are still a bunch of savages.
On Sunday, August 15, a 16-year-old girl in the town of Neka, northern Iran, was executed. Ateqeh Sahaleh was hanged in public on Simetry Street off Rah Ahan Street at the city center.
The judge personally pursued Ateqeh’s death sentence, beyond all normal procedures and finally gained the approval of the Supreme Court. After her execution Rezai said her punishment was not execution but he had her executed for her “sharp tongue”.
Read entire asinine article here.
Focus on the REAL problem people! Maybe then you will come out of the stone age.
eMail this entry!
But but but they aren't in the stone age because of their barbaric traditions! They're only in the stone age because the US sucked up all the money in the world! Just like my parents' generation sucked up all the money and left Generation X with nothing to look forward to except getting jobs flipping burgers or cleaning toilets or even WORKING IN AN OFFICE! It's so awful, but it makes me realize how terrible the evil Bushitler is to steal all the world's oil and leave the people of the world with nothing! If I couldn't eat out at the Olive Garden three times a day, I'd probably start killing people too!
And the media's conservative bias is so obvious in this article... it's clear that this girl said something horribly insensitive, otherwise the judge wouldn't be so angry! It was probably something just as bad as using the n-word, so she certainly deserved to be hung!
yeah - the problem I have with this article is that they don't specify what in the hell she was executed for. Now, if she was executed for murdering school children, that's one thing. If it's because she told the judge he was hung like a weasel, then that's a completely different issue...
I'm wondering also what she was tried for. I was guessing something to do with sex.
We need some brave souls to urge the women there to revolt. They've got to stand up for themselves (admittedly much, much easier said than done, especially with the way they're raised, etc).
