Hello, Brain Surgery With Spoons-
Whats her name? Spell that… N a z a n i n… got it.
So, what’s the story… she’s 17… in the park with her neice… 3 punks come over… her male friends run away… the thugs push her to the ground and start raping her… but she gets out a knife and defends herself…
And I suppose that under Iranian law if she lies back and lets them rape her, its called ‘Extra-Marital Sex’ and she must be punished with 50 lashes-
A HUNDRED? ONE HUNDRED LASHES for being RAPED? In PUBLIC, in a park? Oh, it gets worse? How?
Uh-huh… rapist dies, so the court found HER guilty of self-def MURDER? MURDER?! Defending herself? And the Iranian ‘court of law’ twisted it into murder?
So now her case is going to the Iranian Supreme Court for review, and if the guilty verdict is upheld, that’s it, she gets hung by the neck until dead!
Gracious God! What a grievous miscarriage of justice! Where’s the Universal House of Justice when you need it? In Haifa?
So, what can I do to help Nazanin?
