Blind faith.

I woke today to read that Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, a woman in Iran who was originally sentenced to be stoned to death for adultery; will today be hung instead, for murder.

Whilst I am no Iranian legal eagle (I simply don’t have the beard for the job); there seems to be more holes in this case than in Sylvia Saints back catalogue.

Where are the people who mass-protest each time a satirical cartoon is drawn in Denmark?

Where are the crazed individuals who kick off when a teddy bear gets an exotic sounding name?

Where are the flag burners who have a seemingly endless supply of flags; where are the hysterical tantrums in the streets?? Has the Sri Lankan flag manufacturer not dispatched their EBay order yet?!!

The proposed death of this potentially innocent woman is an outrage to any civilised person; yet the usual protesting masses are silent.

Why?!?
