Report: Serial Killers Cleared by Iranian Supreme Court as Victims' Activities Were Un-Islamic


www.foxnews.com

The Iranian Supreme Court has vacated the murder convictions of a group of serial killers because their victims were engaging in un-Islamic activities, the British Broadcasting Corp. reports.

The men were convicted for a series of grisly killings in the southeastern city of Kerman in 2002. The vigilantes were said to believe that Islam condoned the killing of anyone engaged in illicit activities if they issued two warnings to the victims, the BBC reports.

At least 18 people were killed on the murder spree, but the men were only tried for five of the deaths. Some of the victims were stoned, others were suffocated and at least one man was buried alive, according to the vigilantes' confessions.

An unfortunate reversal, and a glowing propaganda opportunity for the western media. I can't help but wonder if the intent of this decision is to polarize the ongoing strain between the U.S. and Iran even more.

The thought of justifying vigilante killings based upon religious intolerance is beyond the pale.

I'm betting that the freed killers are on a bus to Iraq to spread their brand of religious vigilante justice..

"You are free to go, you represent Islam and after further review you have only helped to rid the world of the infidels. On your way out please notice that there is work to be done in Iraq, it is full of infidels, our Revolutionary Guard will escort you to the border.... Allah Ahkbar and good hunting."
