Posted on 07/14/2009 11:52:46 PM PDT by myknowledge
IRAN hanged some members of a Sunni rebel group in a volatile southeastern area today, but they were put to death in prison and not in public as initially planned, the semi-official Fars News Agency said.
Fars had reported yesterday that 14 members of Jundollah (God's soldiers) would be executed in a park in the city of Zahedan, including the brother of its leader Abdolmalek Rigi.
But Ebrahim Hamidi, who heads the judiciary in Sistan-Baluchestan province, said today the executions took place in a jail instead and that Rigi's brother would be put to death later in the week.
He did not say how many were hanged.
Predominantly Shi'ite Muslim Iran says Jundollah is part of the Sunni Islamist al-Qaeda network and backed by the US, Tehran's arch foe.

From protestors to insurgent rebels.
Note: They hang insurgents.
Thanks Jet Jaguar for the ping.
And Obama wants to open a “dialogue”.
Or were they?
At least they admitted they were Jundollah.
> Predominantly Shi’ite Muslim Iran says Jundollah is part of the Sunni Islamist al-Qaeda network...
So no tears for the dearly departed?
>...and backed by the US, Tehran’s arch foe.
That’s plain nuts! WHAT is the point of fighting a War on Terror against Al Qaeda, whilst backing Al Qaeda in Iran???
There will be some sort of logic there, I’m sure. But I don’t see it.
“The Enemy of my Enemy is also my Enemy but also my Friend but only when he’s fighting my Enemy”...
I don’t mind ‘em hanging some Jundallah terrorist scum.
Mullahs vs. Jundallah is red on red.
> I dont mind em hanging some Jundallah terrorist scum.
They Al Qaeda Jundallah scum, which is better still. Hang ‘em all. Problem is, they’re Al Qaeda scum that the US SUPPORTS!!!
How does that make math, anyway???
I don’t know whether or how the US supports Jundallah scum. So far it’s a charge made by the mullahs and lefties like Koocinich and Sey Hersh.
I hope we do not aid in any form this terrorist scum.
Let’s not forget that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed the 9/11 mastermind is a Balooch like Jundallah.
