It would seem they could get more out of it if they kept them alive and interogated them...
I'm sure that Mossad agent has some dirty little secrets.

That nation also executes gay teenagers.
more precisely it can be said : That nation also executes gay and straight rapers especially when there is a private complainant.
The gays that were executed raped a 13 year old boy. This is something that the Iran hangs gays people leave out of the story.
LGBT rights in Iran since the Iranian Revolution of 1979 have come in conflict with the penal code, with international human rights groups claiming floggings and death sentences of lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals. Homosexuality is a crime punishable by imprisonment, corporal punishment, or in some cases of sodomy, even execution of the accused is legal under the laws of this country's government. Gay men have faced stricter enforcement actions under the law than lesbians. Iran insists that it does not execute people for homosexuality, and those who have either committed rape, murder, or drug trafficking.

By the way, I am so sick of the double standards on ATS by some of its members. If this was done in AMERICA the entire world would be crying fowl and no one would be saying it is ok. For example if all of the terrorists being housed in Gitmo were hanged tomorrow NOONE would think that was ok. So how is this OK

It doesn't say if the men were Iranian or not but their names definitely aren't American/Israeli so you could be right. There isn't much known about them, their case, their trial, if there was one, or who they are. I tried doing a search for them and I come up with many facebook pages so I guess their names are fairly common either in Iran or the Middle East in general. Hell, there's even an Iranian soccer player by name of Mohammad Heidari but I doubt that's Israel's spy.
But death for treason isn't an uncommon punishment.edit on 19-5-2013 by Swills because: (no reason given)

Yeah, hanging is so backwards. They should have kept them indefinitely, and waterboarded and tortured them every once in a while just to remind them where they are, like we do.
I bet most of our prisoners in Guantanamo would welcome hanging. Heck, most are still imprisoned without any charges, at least these guys were spies and chose to be so.
The only reason they support all of this is because Iran is anti-Isreal and anti-America.
These people absolutely HAVE to pick a team, they cannot think critically for themselves and be really independent with their thoughts, they need someone to cheer for.
I really don't like the nation since about 1979. We never did get an apology and such a little thing would go a long way.
