TEHRAN (Reuters) - An Iranian woman has been sentenced to death by stoning
local media reported on Saturday, although Tehran maintains it no
longer executes women in this way.
The woman, named only as Soghra, was found guilty of having an affair with her husband's friend, the Etemad daily reported.
Iran has met international criticism for handing out stoning sentences for adultery. The penalty involves victims being buried up to their midriffs and then pelted to death with stones that are not big enough to kill instantly.
Judiciary officials say no woman has been executed by stoning for several years and that stoning sentences are routinely changed to other forms of execution, such as hanging, or lighter sentences.
"The Islamic code obliges the judge to issue the stoning sentence in adultery cases, however the head of the judiciary may change the final sentence," a judiciary official, who asked not to be named, told Reuters.
WTF is the feminists, where are the lovers of Freedom, where are the media?
A Hawk friend wrote me of the gross failure of the feminists in this country and how dishonest their platitudes were. They ruined American women;
I'm not a lawyer but I am a female who has absolutely no idea what American MODO feminism means anymore other than the right to continue emotionally beating down males (except those males whose image appears to be subservient to the female but behind closed doors behaves like one of those male chauvinist pigs feminist like NOW used to ahbor but today seem willing get down on bended knees and open their mouths in praise of such libidos). I have no idea what equal protection under the law means when there exists such a law of the land which serves to benefit one specific gender for a specific period of time(around nine months) and seems to specifically end right after a twenty minute adventure through the birth canal. And, I have no idea what American feminist mean when burned bras were replaced by size DDD silicone breasts which insist that it not only takes a village to raise a single child but that their grannies and granpies, mommies and daddies be delegated to the sole care of The Government because any semblence to nurturing Motherhood is really just burdensome patriarchy parasitic oppression we females must be Equalized against in order to confirm our
What I really cannot figure out is after some fourty-plus years of living the Equalized life why do I feel so oppressed by Feminism? I think I could use a tall glass of Liberation right now.

I would love to support Hillary for President if she would come out against the travesty in Iraq. But I don't think she can speak out against the occupation, because she supports it.
I will not make the mistake of supporting another pro-war Democrat for president again: As I won't support a pro-war Republican.
This country wants this occupation to end. The world wants the occupation to end. People in Iraq want this occupation to end.
Senator Clinton: taking the peace road would not prove you are weak. Instead, it would prove that you are the strongest and wisest candidate. As a mom, as an American, as a patriot: I implore you to have the strength and courage to lead the fight for peace.
I want to support you, I want to work for you, but like many American moms, I will resist your candidacy with every bit of my power and strength unless you show us the wisdom it takes to be a truly great leader.
Prove that you are "passionate" and reflect our nations' values and refusal to support imperialism, greed and torture.
Senator Clinton: come out against this occupation of Iraq. Not because it is the politically expedient thing to do but because it is the humane thing to do. If you want to make Casey's sacrifice count, bring the rest of his buddies home alive.
I did meet with Sen. Clinton, along with Sen. Harry Reid, on September 22, 2005. No one has asked me how it went with Sen. Reid, but I've been asked about my meeting with Sen. Clinton many times. A few days earlier in Brooklyn, I had referred to her as waiting for a politically "expedient" moment to speak out against the war in Iraq. I, of course, think that this tactic is wrong, because politics has nothing to do with the slaughter going on in Iraq. No one asked the almost 2000 Americans and tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis who have been killed what political party they were rooting for. When a mother receives the news that her son or daughter has been killed for lies she never thinks "Oh no, how could this have happened? I am a Democrat(Republican)!!!"
Playing politics with our soldiers' lives is despicable.
Mother Sheehan it is you who are despicable. One more word about occupied NOLA or that damn Katrina stealing your airtime. You shame your son with every breath you take -Atlas
.... she [Sheehan] whined CNN was dwelling on Rita coverage and neglecting her [Sheehan]. Unfortunately for CS, some the the Kidz had relatives in the Rita area, and they took her to task, accusing her of being a mediawhore, etc. This is almost as good as "get our troops out of occupied New Orleans"...............
From Cindy Sheehan on Daily Kos:
"I am watching cnn and it is 100 percent rita...even though it is a little wind and a little rain...it is bad, but there are other things going on in this country today...and in the world!!!!"
You can just imagine her yelling at the TV -- "ME! ME! ME!"
