Iran's political stone thrower's may decide to use rope to punish Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani according to the latest information from Tehran journalists. Ashtiani first received 99 hard lash whippings from policemen guarding her inside the prison. And at that time she admitted to the conspiracy of committing murder against her husband. For the past 6 years she has been held as a woman on death row in Tehran. The controversy is not over whether or not she is guilty. It is over how to kill her for her involvement in her ex-husband's death. She was indicted on charges of murder and adultery. At first the murder charges were not upheld but she was found guilty of adultery. Some activists interested in the case maintain that the only reason she confessed to accessory to murder was because of the beatings she received while in prison and her fear of what will happen to her family. The hopes of those involved in her civil rights pray that she will be given a more humane sentence like hanging instead of stoning. Her son has told the press that she is definitely guilty although, it may be that he is referring to the adultery conviction and not the murder charges. Speculation now points to the fact that Ashtiani is worried about the safety of her son who rose to her aid by gaining journalists worldwide to help commute her stoning sentence. It appears that she has been pressured to confess to the crime of accessory to murder in hopes that her family is treated fairly and not held accountable for the problems that she is facing in jail at present. Of course, most Muslim and Middle Eastern men believe that Ashtiani doesn't really matter much at all to them. It's only a joke that she will be killed to most of them. Since they were raised to believe that women are useless and should just lay down and open their legs when they are commanded to do so - the death of a woman is dispensible. In the MIddle East laughing over any women's death is usual like setting cars on fire and firing mortar shells at children. They can be regarded as hypocrites who enjoy killing while carrying the Quaran in their back pockets.
Authorities reviewing a death by stoning sentence against an Iranian woman convicted of adultery could still halt the punishment, a senior judiciary official said Sunday as Iran struggles to mute an international outcry over the case. The comments, however, offered no clear evidence that Iran's judiciary would commute the sentence against Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, who was taken from prison late Saturday to meet with journalists in another bid by Iran to highlight her purported confession of helping her lover kill her husband. Ashtiani - who has previously appeared on state-run TV - denied she has been tortured in prison and admitted she was an accomplice the murder. Security officials were present as she spoke
