IRAN: Woman speaks out against rape and torture

Soldier pissing iran The cruel and despicable Islamic Republic of Iran uses religion to terrify and subjugate its citizens.

Too many in the Left give them a leave-pass because Iran positions itself as anti-American.

And while we don’t agree that Islam is inherently cruel, it is actually just being abused and corrupted as an instrument of attaining and retaining power in Iran by a venal and wealthy power elite, this woman has suffered so much at the hands of the regime that you can understand why she’s left feeling so empty and hostile to religion.

She was jailed for three years, tortured and raped, all for declining to wear an Islamic head scarf.

If it happened in America, there’d be an outcry that would deafen the world. And yet these stories are often told but never given the prominence they deserve.

Iran is a force for evil in the world and it’s time we confronted it.

  4. Iran isn’t the first country to use torture and rape to keep its people in line. And the previous culprites have not all been Islamic regimes either.

    Christian history isnt too flash either.

  8. What is the relevance of Christian history?

    As its very name suggests, that is in the past. It’s true the Christians got up to all sorts of barbarism in the dark ages, however they have reformed and are now all too aware of what year we live in.

    Nobody is being burned alive or boiled in oil in 2010 at the hands of Christians.

    Contrast this with Islam, which hasn’t reformed since the 7th Century, and in the 21st Century still chops off heads and amputates limbs – and that’s just what the state gets up to.
