For the last 3 weeks, an innocent person has been executed once every 8 hours, in Iran. This, according to the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran (ICHRI). In the past 3 weeks, 47 people have been executed in the Islamic Republic.
Disgusting, but not shocking in the slightest.
Iran is well known for its infatuation with execution as a form of punishment, even when the person is innocent of any crime, or worse when the “crime” is not a crime at all. Come on… not only is exection an increasingly fowned upon and old fashioned punishment, but since when did anyone deserve to be formally and legally punished, or executed for “waging a war on God,” like Ali Saremi was, just a few weeks ago. Does no one find this mockery of life blasphemous, like I do?
The truth is, the Islamic Regime in power today THRIVES off this type of coercive influence. It need to be able to threaten people into comforming to strict Islamic rules… and dont forget, it is these 15th century, oppressive and chauventistic Islamic rules which have turned the lives of normal Iranian citizens into nightmares. These laws keep a handful of deeply religious, sexist men in power– it gives them the right to marry and divorce as many wives as they want, steal the money of the people, and do favors for their friends and family without any checks and balances.
When a country shamelessly executes 47 of its people back to back, either through hanging, stoning or beheading for outrageuous “crimes” like anti-revolution activities, or supporting womens rights, or even adultery– or for crimes like drug-trafficking (which dont deserve the death penalty), how can we trust that with more power, it will not do more harm?
Iran is straight up butchering its own people, IMAGINE what the Ayatollahs would do if they have a nuclear bomb. Imagine. If Iran isnt stopped, the worst thoughts in our imaginations would inevitably be reality…
Again, just think about it. Iran has executed nearly 50 people in 3 weeks. That is one person every 8 hours. That is a violation of human rights. That is dehumanizing. That is outrageously unacceptable.
Just another example of a a nuclear Iran would be disasterous for Iranians and non-Iranians alike… Wake up people.
