They are massacring their own people. Do you think they would bat an eye to bomb Israel, Europe and the US in their single minded pursuit to install a universal caliphate?
Obama is part of the problem, not part of the solution. He is giving this religious barbarism a free hand.
The world, the UN, the US is watching this and yawning while men and women are being executed for wanting to be free. I stand against this vile internationalism that bows to Islamic kings and mullahs and ethnic cleanses Israel of the Jewish people. Evil. Pure evil.
Activists hanged for trying to topple 'Islamic establishment'
- Pair apparently unconnected to post-election protests
Iran has made its first two executions of people sentenced to death since
massive opposition protests over June's disputed presidential election.Arash Rahmanipour
Reza Ali Zamani and Arash Rahmanipour were hanged this morning after
being convicted of being "enemies of God" and members of an outlawed
The semi-official ISNA news agency said the
two were charged with plotting to topple the government and had been
tried in August – apparently implying that they were part of the
protest movement. But opposition sources said the two were arrested
three months before the elections.
Analysts said the executions
were likely to increase tensions ahead of a new wave of anti-government
demonstrations expected next month when Iran will mark the 31st
anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution that led to the shah fleeing
and Ayatollah Khomeini coming to power.
"It is an attempt to make
sure that the radicals within the opposition movements are not going to
take the lead on the anniversary of the revolution," commentator Baqer
Moin told al-Jazeera.Mohammad Ali-Zaman
Amnesty International warned: "These
executions highlight how the justice system is used as an instrument of
repression. The authorities are sending a warning to those who may wish
to exercise their right to peacefully demonstrate against the
government not to go out in the street."
The lawyer for
Rahmanipour, 19, described the charges as "political" and the verdict
as "illegal, unjust" and designed to intimidate opposition supporters.
"He was never granted the right to defend himself freely and I could
not defend him (adequately)," Nasrin Sotoudeh told Reuters.
