Open Hands and Unclenched Fists

By lex, on September 7th, 2010

The Iranian judiciary stayed the execution by stoning of convicted adulteress Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani during the holy month of Ramadan. But that didn’t stop them for lashing her another 99 times.**

Her crime this time is that a UK newspaper printed a photograph of an unveiled woman, and mis-identified her as Ashtiani. The newspaper later apologized. The Iranian judiciary has not.

No word was available about the punishment received by Ms. Ashtiani’s co-conspirators in the adultery.

Yeah, we can work with these folks.
