But condemning one countrie laws and believes while knowing very well that they are not the only country doing the same I find it bias and still is an agenda behind that news from the Jerusalem post.

WoW... more propaganda please. I hope you know your sources.
You say this things are real and true. I have a question have you been to IRAN?
I bet you haven't'.... so why could it make sense to believe what a article tells you about a country if you never had a first hand experience.
Yep I agree with you their..... we need to denie ignorance and that starts with you and your post.
I have seen many many books and articles and eve post here on ats about hating muslims and islam religion.
Yet these same people never met a muslim and never talked to a imam to learn what the relgion is about they just read these books and watch tv hearing other ignorant phd guys spreading the hate all over america.
My dad has been to IRAN and knows for a fact that this is not true. It's all propaganda.
I agree with him since it sounds like propaganda. I never been to IRAN so I can't share any experience but I am a muslim and do know about Islam but I am not a major in it.
If you want specific Islamic answers go ask a imam they study the religion to the fullest.
Previously arrested for attending a party and being alone in a car with a boy, Atefah received her first sentence for "crimes against chastity" when she was just 13.
Although the exact nature of the crime is unknown, she spent a short time in prison and received 100 lashes.
According to a special "religious decree" issued by Ayatollah Khomeini, virgin women prisoners must be raped before execution to prevent their going to heaven. A Guard conducts the rape the night before their murder. The next day, the religious judge at the prison issues a marriage certificate and sends it to the victim’s family, along with a box of sweets.
According to the penal code, a nine-year-old girl can be punished as an adult by flogging, execution and even stoning. Given the arbitrary punishments and the virtual lack of due process of law, large numbers of children have been executed, in many cases without being officially charged or even having their identities established.
Under the category of hodoud crimes, capital offences include adultery by married people; incest; rape; fornication for the fourth time by an unmarried person, having been punished for each previous offence; drinking alcohol for the third time, having been punished for each previous offence; "sodomy"(16); same-sex sexual conduct between men without penetration (tafkhiz) for the fourth time, having been punished for each previous offence; lesbianism for the fourth time, having been punished for each previous offence; fornication by a non-Muslim man with a Muslim woman; and false accusation of adultery or "sodomy" for a fourth time, having been punished for each previous offence.
In March 2005, Nazanin Fatehi, aged 17, and her niece Somayeh, then aged 14 or 15, both from an economically deprived Kurdish family, were attacked in a secluded area near their home in Karaj. A group of youths surrounded the girls and tried to rape them. Nazanin Fatehi, who carried a knife for self-defence, stabbed one of them in the chest, killing him. The girls fled the scene and reported the incident to the police.
In January 2006, Nazanin Fatehi was sentenced to qesas; the mother of the deceased had demanded retaliation.

condemnations and accusations abound!
all off the keyboards of those who don't want to be told that there is goodness in muslim countries that there is a civilized and worthwhile culture there.
Thanks for debunking the bogus UN citation.
Now then, where in Iranian penal code does it make it legal to rape?
there is nothing on any of these pages to show that and a continued linkage to a now debunked UN report.
so, why so much Muslim hate?
again: Jpost, anonymous, telephone interview.
This is tantamount to lies and propaganda period.

It amazes me that some people are more concerned about the possible alternative motives behind the story than about the fact that children have been so abused?
Where are your priorities? Politics or human life?
