Could have been any one of us

Two Kurdish journalists, Adnan Hassanpour and Hiva Boutimar, have been sentenced to execution for the 'crime of being Moharebeh' which means 'fighting' religion and the Islamic state.

Meanwhile, 7 more were hung today under a banner stating 'Implementing Justice = Elevating Security'.

This brings the numbers executed by the Islamic regime of Iran to at least 148. Death penalty offenses include apostasy, blasphemy, adultery, prostitution, treason and espionage.

In other words, these could have been any one of us...

Its just so sad whenever I stumble upon a so called "Iranian" using the excuse of human rights, justice and so forth to help spill more innocent blood in the Mideast. You sure want to be on the victim's side, but you become the killer when the most effective thing you do is to collaborate with the ones who want the world to approve new bombings, new killings and slaughtering of people who belong to a different culture. Why cant you just realize all those valuable things your civilization has and that it will lose in a western intervention (as history has already shown) and contribute to its development instead of that awfully human instinct of destroying everything because it doesnt fit for you? Work together for God's sake; criticize responsably not helping to justify unfair wars and the deaths of your people.

german: You're obviously clueless about Iran. Please try to educate yourself isntead of parroting the propaganda you've been fed. And try to step into the real world. Noone in the U.S. is waiting for my or your permission or pearls of wisdom to do what they have to do. Who do you think you are???
