Following the execution of Atefeh, a 16 year old girl in the northern city of Neka in Iran, who was accused of having had an extramarital sexual affair, the legal experts are now worried about the faith of three young people who are condemned to death by the Islamic courts. Under international pressure the Judiciary has now announced that they are waiting for three young boys to reach the age of 18 before they are executed. The authorities have not revealed what the boys are convicted of.
Under Islamic Law children are exempt from judicial punishment but the same legal system considers girls at the age of 10 and boys at 16 as adults and punishable.
Although in the past two years the IRI have not carried out some of the court verdicts which contravened the international law of Human Rights, but at the same time no amendments have been made to the Islamic legal system in these respects.
ISNA, the students news agency in Iran says they received letters which warns them the boys have just turned 18 and if the international public opinion remains silent they will have the same faith as Atefeh, the 16 year old girl from Neka.
True, Zoroastrianism was much more their style. And they separated themselves from the Arab Muslims by insisting on their own Shia version of Islam. Persians do make uncomfortable Muslims.
Most Persians I know are either Zoroastrians or non-religious and joke about Islam all the time!
It's a beautiful thing!
D2A (great screen name, btw!), I think even a cursory read of the history of Iran, even nothing more than, say, 1970 to 1979, would make it rather clear that the mess is anything but self-made. There were significant external influences pushing affairs along toward the overthrow of the Shah and the subsequent struggle for power that ultimately the mullahs won.
zEven Jimmy Carter has a bow or two to make for his contribution to this state of affairs, as has been noted in other FR articles.
Look to Carter for the big reason that Iran lost its way.
I think you misunderstand what happened in 1979 in Iran. Here's a brief summary :
20-30% of the population (radicals of different sorts, communists included) wanted to get rid of the Shah. The Shah's Savak's main targets were the communists and radicals. When the uprising increased, the Shah, who had been the U.S.'s biggest ally in the middle east, asked for help from Carter. Carter lied to the Shah and supported Khomeini. The Iranians as majority, wanted to keep a democratic gov't and had one for about 6 to 9 mos after the Shah was encouraged by Carter to leave. Then Khomeini took over and immediately killed thousands, including most of the Shah's people, who had been promised safety, by Carter.
The vast majority of the Iranian people NEVER wanted Khomeini running the country.
The reason we have an inaccurate picture of what happened is because of how the media portrayed things then, and continues to hide the truth about Carter, now. Carter is responsible for the downfall of Iran, the murder and torture of untold 10's of thousands, and problems with terrorism we face today. He is the reason that Iran is not our ally anymore, and why the people there have suffered under a theological dictatorship for the past 25 years.
Seeing as how Carter was a U.S. president, it's pretty amazing that the people of Iran are pro-U.S. after all they've endured.
You are right!
It is not a CHOICE...
It is a CHILD!
