A Letter About Stoning

Dhimmiwatch has posted a remarkable letter from a man whoís mother was sentenced to death under Sharia in Iran and stoned to death. The Mullah who sentenced her to death said he wanted to be sure she suffered as an example to others. Well that has about as much chance as stopping people from having sex as it does to stop the tides.

Besides should Allah judge this woman deserving of suffering is he not capable of delivering his own punishment? I donít see Godís will at play, I see men playing God.

Iím a bit apprehensive about posting this. Because after all my distaste for Sharia Law only serves to reveal the fact that I donít really understand it. Yes, if I werenít so ignorant about the true Islamic Sharia, by golly Iíd shed my unfair bias and be shouting itís virtues far and wide.

Via Robert Spencer's Dhimmiwatch: The Sharia that the jihadists are laboring to impose upon us is the Sharia that cost this boy his mother, and scarred his life forever after.

All decent people, all people who still retain an ounce of humanity, should resist it. This is a post from the Iranian the blog of Azadeh Pourzand thanks again to James): "A letter about Stoning to Death."

And the text of the letter
Hello.

I read your recent article about stoning to death.

Reading your article reminded me of the bleeding bruises in my heart once again.

You wrote about murdering by stoning?

Have you ever held a bloody tool in your hands with which they have murdered your mother?

Have you ever touched the bloody skin and hair of your mother who has just been killed in a deep hole?

Have you ever followed the line of your motherís blood in order to find her corpse thrown at the back of a truck?

Have you ever seen the fresh grave of that dearest being with a small piece of paper on which they have written her name wrapped around a small branch of tree?

Has anyone ever said a word about the children of the people who have been stoned to death?

I was fourteen and now I am forty.

To quote psychologists, I am one of the most fortunate people on this planet. I am fortunate, because despite this contempt in my life I have been able to continue my higher education and find myself a wife, children and a credible job without letting a single black spot remain in my life.

Do you even understand what it means to be the child of a person who has been shamefully stoned to death?

If Islamic clerics tell you that you could not win over the Islamic laws, they have, indeed told you the truth.

My mother used to tell me that she had become a sex-worker in order to feed us and to support us. She used to command us in being real men.
She used to tell us to stand on our own feet and to never lose our hope in Ali (the first imam in shiasm).

Seriously who would want to sell her body, to sell her sex to
anonymous men except for those women who have no other way of feeding their children?

If the husband knows how to make money, the wife and the mother of the family does not have to go and seek customers.

The economic situation needs to improve and single mothers or those mothers whose husbands do not have the ability or the willpower to work, should be able to seek help from the government.

You must establish an organization for supporting these women. It does not have to be a very rich organization in the beginning. No one has the right to condemn you for seeking financial support from different sources for these types of support organizations. Women like my mother who was eventually stoned to death need your help. They need the worldís help and support. Their forgotten families, too, need the worldís help. Help them!

Executing people for having not immoral actions is not going to have an effective result.

Tell me how many people have been executed and stoned to death since the beginning of the Islamic Revolution in IranÖWhat is the result of all of this violence other than the fact that the evil is now truly dominating our society?

I never forget the last words of my motherís Islamic judge:

ďI issued a verdict for stoning this woman to death so that other individuals learn a lesson from her doomed fate and to avoid sins of such nature. To execute by shooting would not have made her suffer enough!Ē

Alas. Twenty six years ago my mother was stoned to death before my eyes. Has these womenís tragic fate helped our society improve?

Statistics show that the rates of prostitution and corruption have increased exponentially.

God bless you!

If only I werenít so ignorant of the true nature of Joseph Stalin, Iím sure I could come away from my biased distaste for Communism, roll up my sleeves and start helping reconstitute the wonderful, but misunderstood, USSR. Tell China they are all a bunch of good old boys and send Fidel Castro a nice Hallmark.

Although I found this via meme and Dhimmiwatch Ali Eteraz at Deanís World claims to have posted on it first. I link him here as a courtesy.

As far as I know the unwritten blog rules say you should link the originator. So since I have multiple claims of origination here, Iím attempting to avoid a pissing match for once.

A note here, if a blogger has multiple sources and likes one better and uses that one. I donít blame him for using the other source. Of course source 2 will again use this as an excuse to attack him.

Never mind the support for your post you are getting. See, since you all linked the same blog you are now riding Robertís meme thread. Donít forget to thank him.

Oh by the way, thanks.
