Iranian ‘justice’

Saturday, 14 May 2011

Not content with killing more people per head of population than any other country in the world Iran is now proposing to drip acid into a man’s eyes because he blinded someone else by throwing acid in her face. This is not justice. It’s revenge.

In a bizarre twist the injured woman says that she expects the man to be blinded in only one eye because under Sharia law a man is worth two women or, alternatively, a woman is worth half a man.

This despicable nation with its warped views of humanity really needs to be called to account. If this is not a ‘cruel and unusual punishment’, such as is banned by the UN charters to which Iran is a signatory then I don’t know what is.

Beware of theocrats for they shall remove your ability to behave humanely.
