Religion of Peace Hijacked by Militants

National Council of Resistance of Iran - Foreign Affairs Committee report:
The mullahs' Supreme Court upheld a stoning sentence on Thursday for a young woman identified as Afsaneh R. A lower court first ruled in her case in the southern city of Shiraz.

An appeal on her behalf was turned down by the Supreme Court on August 4 -- the same day Alireza Jamshidi, mullahs' judiciary spokesman, announced that stoning as a sentence was abolished altogether from the Iranian criminal laws.

Despite much smoke screening by the mullahs' judiciary regarding the commuting of all such rulings, there has not been any change made in the stoning cases.

In July 2007, the Iranian regime caused international outrage when Jafar Kiani was stoned to death in the northwestern city of Qazvin.
Of course, this has nothing to do with Islam. It is just, once again "abused" by radicals.

Hat tip: Eurient.

You may have noticed that my "Lawrence Auster on Islam" page is currently inaccessible? That's because of a problem with the hosting service we were using. We'll have that resolved within the next few days and the page will be back up (permanently) for public viewing.

Just thought I'd let you know.

Good work here at your site!

Thank you Terry!

Yes, I have noticed that the site is down. I am checking from time to time. Would be great to have an Auster-on-Islam compilation. I keep my fingers crossed that everything will work out fine there.

I have a huge blogging backlog. The site "National Council of Resistance of Iran", which I recently discovered, contains a wealth of valuable information, but real life takes its toll.

Thank you for dropping in.
