When a society feels that it must remove a member from its presence, it should make punishment swift and as humane as possible. Not so in the Islamic Republic of Iran. Note the slow death by strangulation inflicted on this woman.
While I may agree that society may sometimes have the need to permanently remove some individuals from its midst, that need should be tempered with a humility that one is stepping into the realm of The Almighty.
Shouts of “God is great,” while a woman is slowly suffocated to death, is plainly barbaric. I have some faith that the Iranian people will someday rise up against the 7th century mullahs that currently have free realm in this theocracy. I only hope they do not wait too long.

By the way; If the voice of the Iranian people was not being heard by the mullahs, then why was this comment made at Friday Prayers by Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami?
“The US has always taken velvet revolution into consideration by promoting Western culture in the society and by causing strife between people and the government through propaganda, organizing certain individuals, psychological warfare and making intentional use of media, intellectual circles, university student’s establishments and feminism movements in order to implement its interfering policies,” he added.

They point the finger at the United States? Do the proud Persians have nothing to say? I’m not buying that load of crap. The only reason that was mentioned was because the heat is being felt on the streets of Iran. That heat is being generated by the Iranian people, not by some bloggers 1,000 miles away.
