Full story: New York Times

A mix-up over a photograph led to a sentence of 99 lashes for the Iranian woman whose earlier death sentence by stoning from Iranian authorities caused an international outcry, a lawyer for the woman said Sunday.

I do not understand why not one single arab in this country does not protest their own government which is a Muslim government. Their vips call themselves supream as though god speaks directly to them. How can someone of any rational accept this? how can muslims accept this. It is terrible but arab women don't seem to care. That is why i cannot tolerate their religion. Just as people do not accept Scientology I cannot accept Islam. It is mind control it is tyranny. And the good people who fall for it maybe finding some inner solace from it and from being told what to think and do but they are not seeing the larger picture. Just as most all americans gobble up high fructose and aspertame, and monsanto genetically modified crops and their omdga 3 deficient cheap food. Common Muslims show me you have a brain let alone a heart.

I agree with you maryanne that there is no sense of humanity in these countries. I do think that the Iranian people would love to get out of under this radical regime, but unless there is a coup within the army of Iran....there will be no change. People who defy the government, disrupt the sentence of the court are often thrown in prison at the least....I wonder how many have protested and lost their lives in doing so. This is evil personified....and, we in the West have no idea just what these people are capable of. Do we support Israel, our great ally? Not so much anymore....Obama is making overtures to the Muslim nations, apologizing for his country. Our government does not even have the common sense to identify these Muslim nations as enemies.....they would rather point the finger at Israel, and in doing so.....the United States will incur God's wrath.

First Iranians are not Arabs but a mix of many races.

Second this story is a clear Western propaganda piece to cover there mistakes and out right lies.

The woman was sentenced to 99 lashes for her adultery. This sentence has already been carried out. She is not sentenced to be executed for adultery but for the conspiracy to murder and accessory after the fact of the murder of her husband.

The Lawyer who has left Iran because he has been bared from practicing in Iran for lies and malpractice seems incapable of seeing the fool he is making of himself and the western media seems incapable of checking facts.

This new story seems to be an attempt to cover the double jeopardy issue, where the claims of execution for adultery have no credit because she has already received the sentence for that.

She drugged her husband and then assisted there lovers to kill him by electrocution placing electric cord around his neck. The coroner said it was a brutal and painful death for him, he would have suffered greatly.

Farther more the stoning sentence has been removed from Iranian law for some time now she was the last person in Iran to receive this sentence. Her stoning sentence has now been revised to hanging. there is no story her unless one of capital punishment in general.

Think about this story with some logic and you will see that this is the truth.
Western media use a photo of a journalist to falsely represent the convicted woman, how has this anything to do with the woman who is on death row and unable and unwilling to talk with foreign media. Iran knows that the incompetence of western media has nothing to do with the woman and these propaganda stories have no bearing on her case.

Well done & correct to say the least.. Disregard the babbling of those girls ; they're incapable of thinking.. Certainly this is a case with fundamental reasoning.. We know the Western media puts their spin on everything to tarnish a true sequence of events.. Certainly this babe should br brutally & unmercifully stoned for her crime[s].. The 99 lashes were hopefully just the beginning of more pertinent justice & to shut the Western media up.. I hope she was lashed publicly & that putting her to a slow death by hanging is public as well.. Such penalties should exist in the u.s. to deter the epidemic proportions of crime now being perpetrated by women..

We have a thing in this country called freedom. Hannibal and PJ can think and say whatever they like. If you don't like it, perhaps you should obtain a work visa and move to Iran, where you can join the government in telling people how to think. I would be more than happy to pay for that passport for you or any other "vetran."

I am aware the no one in Iran can protest this. But I am talking free muslims living in this country. The only people speaking out about it are free americans of other faiths...christian, aethiest, Jewish. Even in France the presidents wife wrote a letter and was hence called a prostitute by Iran. The Pope is at least giving a display of concern. And I know in Oslo ..well in Oslo I do believe other Iranians are protesting. But not here. No muslim has made a peep here or anywhere for her mercy.

Has the leader of any mosque in our country come out and said anything against it? how about the sufi leader of the NYC mosque who wants a multi cultural center or multi faiths,(what a guise!)...has he condemned the practice? So I am to assume all muslim men condone this and all their wives will be beaten or murdered for speaking out...or are these women suffering from Stockholm Syndrome and so impressed with their captors?

By the way even the ancient egyptians gave no more than approx 27 lashes because they knew more could kill a person. these lashes are deep and scarring. You know you barbarians out there who want so much to assert your manhood and control..violence does not correct nor does it bring respect. It may bring obedience but it sure brings fear and rebellion. So it is plain stupidity to use such tactics. That is why it is an outdated backwards creedo set of made up rules and practices that are solely based on weak men and their ego's. there is no spiritual understanding in their religion. Excessive cleaning and kneeling...bunk....all serving to make them more malleable to a tyrants control...Didn't the Russians call religion "the opiate of the people"? Well this is prime example. These people have lost their morality... compassion is a non-existant concept...their religion is pure enslavement from the medieval ages. Ignorant of gods love for every human being.

ĎFreeí according to your subjective idea of the concept? I donít think so.
Iím a vet, too. Do I get to pick out a particular group with whom I disagree and tell them to leave? If so, I pick bigots.

Sorry to rain on your one-man Veteransí Day Parade, but thatís not how it works.
The freedoms you defended are for all Americans, regardless of race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation, as per the Constitution, not your skewed prejudices.

This poor woman has/will be lashed 99 times for a picture taken of her without a veil and then stoned to death for having a relationship with someone a year after her husband passed...These inhuman barbaric people live in the stone age (no pun intended), and they wonder why the rest of the world doesn't trust them or wants anything to do with them...

Or perhaps you could move to that country where nobody speaks English particularly well. At least there you'll sound intelligent - or at least be 'excepted.'

My latest 10-year passport renewal is this year. Feel free to send a check.

This is Islam. No matter how they mask it. Now do you see why the people want to burn the Quran? The Quran is used to JUSTIFY this insanity - and ALWAYS HAS BEEN!

So, if they wear coarse, cotton fabric, women and children will begin crawling on all fours and barking?
