Death by Stoning

Iran is still executing those found guilty of adultery and other sex crimes.

Death is by stoning.

Men are buried up to their waists.

Women are buried up to their chests.

Then the stoning begins.


The first stones thrown are not to be large enough to kill immediately.

Torture - that's what is happening here.

Currently, there are eight women and one man who have been sentenced to death.

The women are accused of adultery, prostitution and incest. I can't help but wonder if these charges are true, or if they are twisted to protect the men. The women range in age from 27 to 43.

The man is a 50 year old music teacher who had relations with a student.

Maybe we should sentence our pediphiles to life in Iran.

    It doesn't matter how many times I read about stoning in Iran, it still seems amazingly barbaric.

  2. This looks very bad. There are still human being willing to do those cruel things with this kind of severe punishment law existing. They must be out of their mind or just too dare to die.

  4. yes, very good point about the pedophiles.

    seems like I remember a case in Iran, Afganistan or someplace like that where a woman was gang raped by a group of men and yet she was considered the "guilty" one. So I have no doubt if that woman in Iran was convicted of "incest" it was probably at the hands of one of her male relatives and he got off and she was the one left to pay. victimizing the victim.

    But what can one really expect from societies where women are still considered property?
