Bush Regime Sentences Journalists to Death

Oh wait, I thought it was Bush that was the real Hitler today? Iran sentenced two Kurdish reporters, Adnan Hassanpour and Hiva Boutimar, to death for being "enemies of God". Apparently writing against the regime is the same as taking up arms against them.

Has Bush sentenced Noam Chomsky to death yet? Didn't think so......


BBC:

The two journalists have 20 days to appeal against their sentences, but if their cases are rejected by the Supreme Court the sentence will be carried out.

Iran has executed over 100 people so far in 2007, most of them by hanging.

A spokesman for the Iranian judiciary said that the two journalists had "taken arms to topple the system". ...

It said the two were writing for a Kurdish news magazine before it was banned in 2005.

Could be worse...they could be stoned to death.
