    Execution, -murder by state- is barbaric, no matter the form it is applied. No executions! No stoning!

    It doesn’t solve anything and only creates more pain and grief…. As Jesus said, “may the one who is sinless cast the first stone”….

  2. The fact alone of stoning women to death is indicator enough of how WRONG are the present Muslim ideologies and the regime in Iran!

  3. Antonio

    Freedom men and women in Persia Free… liberty of press forever!!! :)

  4. Hundred of thousandths of men and women appealled to the Iran’s regime to free Sakineh and they kept their ears deaf to these appeals. Hundred of thousandths of men and women call again to the Iran’s regime to free Sakineh and they still keep deaf to these calls. For how long yet? What else can crash this evil empire where women have no rights and men are reduced to pions? This barbaric regime enslaving women in the name of Allah? For how long yet? …because the world said: NO!…Free Sakineh and her son!

  5. FABLES BOUTIQUE IN WIMBORNE ,DORSET.THERE WILL BE A PETITION TO SIGN NO TO STONING- – NO TO EXECUTION , IN SOLIDARITY…….FABLES IS BY THE RIVER ALLEN BY HANHAM.S CAR PARK

  7. I will be honored to once again publicly protest on behalf of Sakineh Ashtiani, and now her son and attorney. Although no one has ever joined me here in Huntsville, Alabama, I will continue to stand up and stand beside Sakineh and all of those who are joining the cry for human rights. If you live in Huntsville, Alabama, USA, please contact me so that we can show solidarity. Remember: silence kills.
