Iranian Cleric Says Rioters Should Be Executed
Khaleej Times Online ^ | 26 June 2009 | Khaleej Times Online

Posted on 06/26/2009 7:28:58 PM PDT by Son House

A hardline Iranian cleric called on Friday for the execution of leading rioters to teach a lesson to the thousands who have protested against the June 12 presidential election result.

I want the judiciary to ... punish leading rioters firmly and without showing any mercy to teach everyone a lesson, Ahmad Khatami told worshippers at Tehran University.

Khatami, a member of the Assembly of Experts, said the judiciary should charge the leading rioters as being mohareb or one who wages war against God.

They should be punished ruthlessly and savagely, he said. Under Iran's Islamic law, punishment for people convicted as mohareb is execution.

Mousavi's supporters plan to release thousands of balloons on Friday with the message: Neda you will always remain in our hearts, in memory of Neda Agha Soltan, the young woman killed last week who has become an icon of the demonstrations.

Khatami said Neda was killed by government opponents for propaganda purposes. By watching the film, any wise person can understand that rioters killed her, he said.

Britain's Times newspaper quoted Dr. Arash Hejazi, an Iranian who appeared on Internet videos helping Neda, as echoing opposition charges the 26-year-old music student was killed by a government militiaman.

She was just a person in the street who was against the injustice going on in her country, and for that she was murdered, he said.

Russia, which along with China congratulated Ahmadinejad on his re-election earlier this month, said on Friday it was seriously concerned by the use of force in Iran.

Mousavi said he was determined to keep challenging the election results despite pressure to stop.

How our own President here in America does not understand the oppression of a society like this is beyond a lack of intelligence.

If Obama just didn't know how bad it was, he should admit his lack of knowledge. Instead we get some poor excuse of not being seen as meddling, only to have Ahmadinejid scold him like a child for meddling.

Imagine that, a religious leader has no mercy

Ahmad Khatami is not the same sort of "religious" leader you are used to.

At the same time I think we have a suitible test subject for our laser armed 747 array. All we need to do is track this guy and then vaporize him from hundreds of miles away. Just turn him into a puff of stuff right in front of his gumbahs.

No, it's a matter of BO supporting an oppressive strong centralized form of government he espouses.

This situation shows that Zero is a Muslim; if he open his mouth about these protesters, his fate will be the same as St. John the Baptist

Obama must be right at any cost. He said he would sit down and negotiate with Amadmanjihadi and damn it he will do anything it takes to make that a reality even if it means selling out the people of Iran to further Oppression and death. Slavery of people means little to Obama as long as he can show the world that he is all that really matters.

“Imagine that, a religious leader has no mercy”

Well-what did you EXPECT from a mahometan? After all, it’s a religion of peace!/sarcasm

The people of Iran need M-16s now not support from talks by O Zero. They will never be free without arms. Right now they are hacking the protesters with axes. What a religion and O Zero wants to play nice with them and apologize for making them to nutty.. O Zero really does hate this country.

Should be quite impressive. There’s little to be gained by going in and blowing up some country’s army but if you can take out their top butchers with precision, you might even make some friends there.

Queensryche - No Sanctuary

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czPbIkC2JTk

There’s a certain feeling
Known to all who hear the sound
The call of morning rising
You’re in a mystic space
Can’t you feel the force embrace, the chill of the wind
As it names you

Oh, can’t you see the lies in front of you
Your journey ends so far, and still the distance
Spins round and round you
Now you cry - give me sanctuary
You scream but no one listens
Again you cry - give me sanctuary
Until the end I’ll fight and die, to be free
Oh! No sanctuary

You’re walking halfway in
But crawling halfway out
There’s a void in your mind that you cling to
You feel lost in time, you’ve got no words to rhyme
No more charms, no more spells to protect you

Oh can’t you see the lies in front of you
Your journey ends so far, and still the distance
Spins round and round you
Now you cry - give me sanctuary
You scream, but no one listens
Again you cry - give me sanctuary
Until the end I’ll fight and die
Oh I’ve got to be free

Ahmad Khatami says rioters should be executed.

I expect Napolitan has the same inclination.

Khamenei and Sanford are both saying “thank you Michael Jackson” today. I think I saw a combined 15 minutes coverage on those two issues today. I saw “Thriller” footage perhaps 50 times.

Sounds like a job tailor made for Israel.

Are you really so naive to believe that Bozo doesn’t understand what is going on? Bozo is a muslim, and he is on the side of the Mullahs, that is why it took so long for him to actually say anything at all that remotely sounded like a rebuke to the leaders of Iran. Bozo is a total traitor to the USA, a quisling, a Manchurian Candidate, a man bent on the total destruction of freedom in the USA.

I think Øbama has had a sheltered life, a poor education because he wouldn’t pay attention in class, and in his narrow mind believes he has been suffering suppression all his life

I am sorry, Bozo’s aims are to take over America, it is obvious, and he proposes to do this by making the USA an economic wasteland so he can declare Martial law and impose his will on us. He is being used by others, but he believes in what he is doing. I do not think he is intelligent at all but he is till evil and is a perfect figure head for the News Media’s propaganda campaign.
