Call for action: Sakine Mohammadi e Ashtiani to be stoned to death

by d

Iran has sentenced a woman, Sakineh Mohammadi e Ashtiani, to death by stoning. She has been convicted of adultery, based on a confession given during torture by whipping. The law has condemned her, but there is a movement to put international pressure on Iran.

Sign the petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/help-sakine-mohammadi-e-ashtiani-live

Sakine Mohammadi e Ashtiani faces a horrible punishment for an act of nature: sex. But apparently sex outside of marriage is volatile enough that this woman deserves to be executed by stoning. At least some people in Iran think so. She will almost certainly be murdered by a corrupt “justice” system in a most excruciating way unless WE do something about it. This petition is that something. Although stoning is sadly not terribly uncommon in some parts of the world, saving one person from this atrocity could help to build the movement against inhumane punishments and executions worldwide and promote more justice in troubled nations like Iran. YOU have power to help stop this, the choice is simply yours to do it or not. I urge you brothers and sisters, for we have no more room for hate in our world, the free MUST remember the forgotten. This is simply our duty to our fellow human, to stand up for her when she cannot. I beg you to share this with anyone who would sign it, as it will send a strong message to those capable of helping this poor woman have her right to life.

  1. Thank you for posting on this.

  2. I attend the “Gosplel” Service at the base chapel on Shaw AFB, SC. Since 2006 I have been watching images reveal themselves to me on the large hexagon lights suspended from the ceiling. There are 3 images. The 1st one is of the “Father” when he turned away from Jesus. He is accompanied by a sheep. The middle one is Jesus face. The most recent is a woman with a scarf covering her head. She is dressed like your mother. There is a male figure looming over her. When I saw this article on the 5 July news, I realized that perhaps, this was an outcry from the heavens.
