Skip to comments.Iran to hang teenage girl attacked by rapists
Posted on 01/08/2006 9:48:22 AM PST by jmc1969
An Iranian court has sentenced a teenage rape victim to death by hanging after she weepingly confessed that she had unintentionally killed a man who had tried to rape both her and her niece.
The state-run daily Etemaad reported on Saturday that 18-year-old Nazanin confessed to stabbing one of three men who had attacked the pair along with their boyfriends while they were spending some time in a park west of the Iranian capital in March 2005.
She described how the three men pushed her and her 16-year-old niece Somayeh onto the ground and tried to rape them, and said that she took out a knife from her pocket and stabbed one of the men in the hand.
As the girls tried to escape, the men once again attacked them, and at this point, Nazanin said, she stabbed one of the men in the chest. The teenage girl, however, broke down in tears in court as she explained that she had no intention of killing the man but was merely defending herself and her younger niece from rape, the report said.
The court, however, issued on Tuesday a sentence for Nazanin to be hanged to death.
Last week, a court in the city of Rasht, northern Iran, sentenced Delara Darabi to death by hanging charged with murder when she was 17 years old. Darabi has denied the charges.
In August 2004, Irans Islamic penal system sentenced a 16-year-old girl, Atefeh Rajabi, to death after a sham trial, in which she was accused of committing acts incompatible with chastity.
The teenage victim had no access to a lawyer at any stage and efforts by her family to retain one were to no avail. She was eventually hanged in public in the northern town of Neka.

Religion of Peace my ass.
You would think that the NOW gang would be demanding we invade Iran.
And Europe preaches about tollerance. We ought to bomb Iran and throw every Euro-weanie in prison for stalling on action as these crimes take place.
War is the only solution.
Only animals would sentence a woman to death for killing a rapist. Actually that's wrong, animals would cheer her on. Sub-human monsters would sentence a woman to death for killing a rapist.
The silence is deafening.
Such a noble people. Surely we can trust them with nukes, right?
Oddly enough except for the death penalty this would jive with liberal beliefs on "escalation of violence". The belief that killing someone who isn't trying to kill you is a crime seperate from their actions.
All we need is some bullshit from you to put the cherry on top!
Can you be a Christian and not see Satan's face leering at you in practically everything they do?
These kind of actions taken by the government of Iran come as no surprise.
If I were her, I would have done the same thing. What she did was self defense.
Sounds more like a stoning offense....NOT.
and the NOW organization will speak up?
"An Iranian court has sentenced a teenage rape victim to death by hanging..."
We should expect anything else? Animals.
This is a terrible tragedy and great injustice. Fortunately though is while Iran has no credible system of justice, God does and always will and all those in Iran responsible for this will face God.
Soon to be seen in your local Muslim enclave here in the US Oh BTW what is CAIR's or our moderate Muslim friends outrage over this?
She did that in self defense. Normally, I am against capital punishment but after seeing crap like this, I think those Iranian judges ought to be hanged. Somebody needs to take out these idiots, hopefully it will be the US or Israel.
It's Satan's (modus operandi) religion.
True but someone needs to set up the meeting with god for these satanic mullahs
I honestly believe that Mohammad was a prophet, of the devil.
Unless it involves white CEOs or conservative politicians,it is not on NOW's agenda.
They consider consensual sex, harrassment, if the man is a higher authority in the company than the woman.
NOW lost its credibility when the Clinton, Lewinsky, affair went public and they went silent. - tom
Religion of Pieces of shiites is more like it.
Iran and Vermont. What's the difference?
Kill them all, and any who believe as they do. Piss on human rights and governments and religious freedom and anything else that permits [expletive] like this happen anywhere in the world.
check into it, and you'll find you're on to something...
Isaac and Ishmael
President Jimmy Carter gave Iran to the mad mullahs when he failed to support a dying Shah of Iran. Tens of millions of people suffer under this evil theocracy that seeks weapons of mass destruction. Radical Iran is only a fraction of the Carter holier-than-thou Legacy. Another Liberal mess left for Conservatives to clean up.
OK first let's call the U.N. and see if they stop the hanging
Now let's wait and see what other country is going to put together a coalition of country's to stop the brutal murder of a girl who was protecting herself and her loved one !
Let's wait for another country to make 17 or so resolutions denouncing the murder of woman who defend their lives against rapists and wait for the countries affected by the resolutions to comply that should give them enough time to set up a program to rip off the people of their oil while promising them food and money for said oil.
Oh wait that was already done.
Damn let's just go get drunk and forget for awhile that this stuff happens in the world theres nothing we can do about it .
Human beings pretty much suck but the ones who kill innocent kids for defending themselves and innocent children who haven't been born yet suck the most !
Oh my...poor little girl.
War is the only solution.
It's not our job to police Iran for its inhumane system of justice.
Iranians are idiots. Moslems are idiots. Islam is a death cult that must be wiped off the face of the Earth.
Apparently the mullahs view the fact that the girls were in a park with their boyfriends as a major contributing factor. Any normal muslim man would feel entitled to rape such a loose woman. And in fact, some might before she is hung, as part of the sentence.
If she hadn't fought her attacker, they would have sentenced her to death for being immoral.
They can't they only believe in DEATH.
Correct. But it is our job to make sure Islamist regimes don't join the nuclear club.
Why dont all those Austrian Tookie lovers go to Iran and straighten this mess out?
Meanwhile CAIR moans that islam gets no respect because of hate and ignorance by Christian.
But if you're a guy, it's okay to prowl the streets and rape any girl at will.
kerry wants to give his Iranian mullah pals nuclear fuel to "test them".
This country is just sick. As sick as Saudi Arabia and Iraq pre-Saddam. God bless that poor girl.
And yet the left continues to call us savages.
The liberals are due for an epiphany, hopefully they won't wait until the muslims have a noose around their feminist necks.
Kind of reminds me of the Garden of Eden fiasco.
These people are psychopaths who want to take over world.
Where's the NOW Gang? somebody call Ramsey Clark... if he gets this girl off I might have a better opinion of him.. cuz he'll have done the right thing for once in his life
What a nightmare to have to live in a miserable, stinking, unjust country like IRAN.
