Iran will impress the world today with a demonstration of its technical abilities by hanging 30 people for a variety of crimes from drug possession to simple felonies, including disturbing public safety and security, being a public nuisance while drunk and being involved in illegal relationships. Iran is second only to China in its rate of execution. China currently has the lead with 470 last year to Iran’s 317. This will, however, make a bent in the deficit.
Iran recently announced its plans to second nine people for adultery. Click here.
Update: Iran has carried out the sentence, here tough CNN is reporting 29 confirmed hangings.
Iran often uses cranes to hang people. This includes the recent hanging of a 16-year-old girl for having sex out of weblock, click here. After the judge was criticized internationally for his death sentence of Atefeh Rajabi as a violation of international legal principles against executing minors, he personally put the noose around her neck and signals for the crane to be raised. Her death was defended as necessary under Sharia law and Islamic traditions in Iran.

Yes, they have oil & they’re a Muslim nation. Goodness knows, unless you are a Christian nation, you are evil! And since 9/11 we ALL know (especially Martha, right dear?) how awful those Muslims are. But a Christian country? Sure, we might have dropped some 40,000 bombs in Iraq & a couple thousand daisy-cutters in Afghanistan, but we didn’t “target” any innocent people… that’s what makes us SO right! Good thing ‘ol Bushie is leading this Crusader initiative, otherwise, it might have never happened.
Martha, your terrorist rhetoric? typical.
The difference is Iran has Oil.

You make that up yourself or does that one come on a cue card?
