An Iranian woman is being stoned to death following accusations of adultery.

What is your opinion of this archaic method of execution? What about the deed? Is it THAT bad to illicit stoning? I mean I know it is there, but you know what I mean.

I'm not for stoning, but if men were being killed for their adultery then I wouldn't feel soo bad about it. However I think that men get away with rape and women get beat and killed for being victimized, which makes me hate things like this because like Emma said, she was probably raped by both men who killed her husband...leaving her a victim to be killed by a judicial system that doesn't support anything without a penis

Nobody deserves this, whatever they've done. Organisations such as Amnesty Internation have been lobbying for an end to Sharia law.

The woman doesnt deserve that..i think its heartless and cruel to kill her even if she were guilty..makes you thankful for were you were born in the world.

Even if she was guilty of both affairs AND killing her husband with her bare hands I'd still say she shouldn't be stoned to death.
She has little kids too. Now they won't have a mother or a father.

She probably was raped by these people that killed her husband and then the law saw it as being her fault. Iran and all that are still pretty sexist.

It just makes you sick to your stomach doesn't it? Frankly, even if she were guilty - I'd be upset at stoning her.

We are fortunate aren't we? Free countries, modern thinking, freedom of religion,.. damn.

It's brutal isn't it? I'm not familiar with their laws, but right now I don't think I'd want to be anyways.

I'm always so careful to take everything with a grain of salt, cause I know that the US has a hate-on for Iran right now...but man, I hate Sharia Law. I just hate it.

ok the articles I read before and I can't find now said:

1, she was tried for murder and found innocent
2. despite the innocent verdict the judge decided to find her guilty because he's allowed to because of "how he feels" I shit you not, that is what the article said.
3. there was NEVER any proof that she had an affair or that she committed murder or conspired to commit murder
4. if I remember right - she's actually of turkish descent while her husband was iranian - which may be a factor in the judge doing what he did.

Geez, I gotta be corrected in my own thread lol. I just think whats going on in Iran is horrific in general and her story is a perfect example.









And I am laughing Cathy.

The second article doesn't say anything about her husband's murder and her being convicted of that... I wonder which article is right.

Ok got it straight now. She still shouldn't be stoned and like Carolee said, it doesn't make sense.

Yeah. She was tried and found guilty because she had affairs with the two men who killed her husband. But the title of the article was that she was being stoned for adultry. It's all a bit confusing...

Ok I missed that, why was she tried for murder? That article is poorly written, I should grab a better one.

Well, how I understood the article was that she had already been sentenced for the adultry with the lashings and jail time. When she was found guilty of murder was when the sentence was changed to stoning. But, according to (at least by the article) the laws over there, stoning is acceptable for adultry, but not for murder. Therefore, shouldn't she be sentenced to death by hanging (which is apparently the approved form of death for murder) instead of stoning (which is approved for adultry but not for murder)?
