Call for help against non-stop executions in Iran

It seems there is no end to these savage executions in Islamic Non-Republic of Iran and the head of Iran's judiciary has issued an order that executions shouldn't be carried out in public without his permission. He also banned the publication of photographs or videos of executions. Most executions take place inside prisons but some criminals have been hanged in public in the city centers to spread fear between people.

It appears mullah-fascism decided to keep a low profile that widely criticized by human rights groups, international organizations and western countries. From now on, they can hide much better their crimes against helpless prisoners which most of the time justice didn't serve them and if an impartial judge review their file, they will find out innocent and free of crime.

Human rights groups say Iran executed nearly 300 people in 2007 as it tries to improve security and reduce what it calls immoral behavior. Iran has executed at least 28 convicts so far this year in 2008, according to media reports. Capital offences in Iran include murder, rape, armed robbery, serious drug trafficking, apostasy, adultery and homosexuality.

Persian holocaust remembrance day

Well, despite all hostility between Iranian fundamentalist Muslims and Israel, an Iranian group Iranians Friends of Israel remembered "holocaust remembrance day" and paid respect for the victims of that genocide. I think so, we, Persians should recognize this day in our calendars and pay our respect to the victims of holocaust. I know it sounds silly or impossible in current fundamentalist muallhs who don't miss a chance to shout "Down with Israel" or "Israel should be wiped out of the face of the world" and so on, but if we, people, recognize "holocaust remembrance day" in our calendar, recall it and remind it to our friends, colleagues and bloggers we make their memory alive and this whole thing make us a better group inside and outside of Iran. If we understand what happened in past to Jews then we can expect that the world understand what's going on in Iran. Remembrance of such day could remind us what can happen to civilized people when bigotry, hatred and indifference reign.

Thanks to Iranians Friends of Israel that brought this topic to attention.

By the way, I don't have any problem with Israel and most of people too and just we are tiered of Iranian mullahs fascism who supports Hezbollah and Hamas. Almost in every conversation you can hear that people are so frustrated with the idea of supporting fanatic groups in the region.

17 year old Mohammad Latif awaiting death

Mohammad Latif was only 14 years old when, in October 2004, a scuffle outside school landed him in prison. He says the attacker a 16-year-old boy, slashed his hand. Latif says he fought back and then grabbed the knife. He can't recall how the knife entered attacker's neck -- and led to the boy's death. Latif was arrested and convicted of murder and he has spent three years waiting to be hanged. The Supreme Court has confirmed the conviction and they are waiting for approval from head of judiciary, Ayatollah Shahrudi.

Ebrahim Lotfollahi died in custody under torture

Ebrahim Lotfollahi, Kurdish Iranian senior law student has died in custody at the Iran intelligence ministry detention center in Sanadaj. He was arrested when he left his university’s examination hall and while his family tried to arrange for him to be released from custody; they were told that he has committed suicide in January 17, 2008. That's a big fat lie; it's a second obvious killing of people under torture in custody in just over a month. In December 2007 a young woman, medical doctor Zahra Bani Yaghoub, died after she was arrested for walking in a park with a man to who assumed she was not related.

Iranian authorities rushed to bury Ebrahim Lotfollahi before his family could visit him and they filled his grave with cement, apparently to prevent his body being exhumed for medical examination.

Ashura in west

I explained about Muharram and Ashurah before but today a friend of mine sent me this link about Shitte Ashurah mourning in Manhatan streets of New York and also in Toronto, Canada!

This ceremony is stupid and meaningless but extending superstition in Islamic society and sending "being foolish" message to people who get the chance to see them. If you have objection just give me one good reason that what are you doing and what society will benefit from your action during your mourning to somebody who get killed in past 1400 years ago? What good comes out of your mourning in the streets while you beat in your chest and head?
Take a look at videos from New York and Toronto!

Death for Adnan Hassanpour

Adnan Hassanpour, 25, was sentenced to death by a revolutionary court in Marivan, Iranian Kurdistan, on 16 July 2007 after he was found guilty of “subversive activities against national security, “espionage” and “separatist propaganda”. His death sentence was confirmed by the Tehran Supreme Court on 22 November.

Adnan Hassanpour, who is a fervent activist for Kurdish cultural rights, was arrested outside his home on 25 January 2007, and imprisoned in Mahabad jail, where he has been denied the right to receive visits from his family or his lawyer.

The journalist has already twice been on hunger strike in prison in protest at the harsh conditions.

He worked for the weekly Asou, until it was banned by the ministry of culture and Islamic orientation in August 2005. He wrote for it about the Kurdish issue, a highly-sensitive subject in Iran. He also contributed to foreign media, including Voice of America and Radio Farda, broadcasting to Iran in Persian.

Nearly 300 people have been executed in Iran since the start of the year, according to several non-governmental human rights organisations.

Benazir Bhutto killed by Islamist

Update: Sorry for this long delay, well, the question is who are gonna benefit from this assissination?

1. Generals in Pakistan;

2. Extremist Muslims in Pakistan which they have total support from Pakistanis Generals and Secret services;

3. Islamic non-Republic of Iran;

4. Iraq's extremist.

Obviously there is no need to explain why first two will benefit but Iran and Iraqi's extremist benefit from violent and terrorism in the region. These last two will benefit from distracting world powers but I can't blame these two although Benazir Bhutto had a meeting with the Supreme Leader, Sayyid Ali Khamenei, which she knew she needs mullahs support before to go back to Pakistan.
