Has his royal clowness Obama demanded a "flotilla"-like investigation into this impending Islamic atrocity? Ugh.
Just think about how Obama stood by this time last year and gave his tacit approval (via his silence) when the murderous mullahcracy slaughtered its own people. It makes your skin crawl.
Armaros snarks, "I guess we could take this up with the UN human rights counsel and women's rights body which Iran chairs....and Obamerica has joined.....
Will the US complain? or will it be "Respect it", the great Islamic republic of Iran."
Death by stoning imminent for Iranian woman CNN
The 42-year-old woman from the northern city of Tabriz was convicted of adultery in 2006, and her execution is imminent, said prominent human rights lawyer Mohammad Mostafaei.
Ashtiani was forced to confess after being subjected to 99 lashes, Mostafaei said Thursday in a telephone interview from Tehran.
She later retracted that confession and has denied wrongdoing. Her conviction was based not on evidence but on the determination of three out of five judges, Mostafaei said. She has asked forgiveness from the court but the judges refused to grant clemency.
Iran's supreme court upheld the conviction in 2007.
Mostafaei believes a language barrier prevented his client from fully comprehending court proceedings. Ashtiani is of Azerbaijani descent and speaks Turkish, not Farsi.
