It was announced a little more than an hour ago that Sakineh Ashtiani has been sentenced to death.  Of course, Ashtiani will not be stoned to death for committing adultery because she will be first executed for murder.  Something is truly wrong with the logic behind Sharia.


“TEHRAN – Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani has received a death sentence for committing murder and this sentence has precedence over her crime in doing adultery, announced National Prosecutor General Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei.

‘According to the court’s ruling, she is convicted of murder and her death sentence has priority over her punishment (for committing adultery),’ Mohseni-Ejei told a press conference on Monday.

The prosecutor’s remark means that Ashtiani will not be stoned to death for committing adultery, because she should first be executed for murder.

‘The issue should not be politicized and the Judiciary will not be influenced by the propaganda campaign launched by the Western media,’ added Mohseni-Ejei who also serves as the Judiciary spokesman. …”

How these fanatics justify murdering women all in the name of Sharia is alarming and mind-boggling.  This Tehran news outlet is accusing the West of politicizing and exaggerating this case.
