Religion of Peace & Women: Installment 9,324

"...Two Iranian sisters convicted of adultery face being stoned to death after the supreme court upheld death sentences [by stoning] against them, Iranian media have reported.

The two sisters were found guilty of adultery - a capital crime in Iran - after the husband of one of the pair presented a video showing them in the company of other men while he was away.

The Etemad newspaper quoted Jabbar Solati, their lawyer, as saying that the sisters had initially been tried for "illegal relations" and had received 99 lashes. However, they were convicted of "adultery" in a second trial for the same incident.

The pair admitted they were in the video but argued there was no adultery as no scene on the video showed them engaged in a sexual act." (source)

How convenient there's a tape of them "in the company" of other men. How nice for Muslim men to be able to have there wives beaten and killed for the infraction of "being in the company of another man." ...Do you also get the feeling Ahmed paid someone to go speak to his wife while he taped from across the street?
