I can't wait to see how the apologists are going to try to twist this around.

In the majority of countries, adultry is not considered a crime worthy of punishment especially death unlike some hard-core religiously governed countries.

Dhimmis just ignore stuff like this. If you point it out, then you are generalizing to all Muslims, most of whom apparently find this kind of stuff repellent. Although its odd, all those Muslims only seem to be in Western countries.

Well duh. Iran doesn't have the ballistics to send all those stones across the Atlantic, it's like Brazil doesn't get it.

Well, I can certainly wait to see the Islam haters make this about all of Islam despite the fact its a Jewish punishment. But there is Molenir, second post.

I do not support the punishment, but this woman did know the law. I still don't support the punishment, and I think she should be let go. Iran has a messed up legal system, that is for sure.

A Jewish punishment eh? Why did I suspect someone was going to make this about Israel. Meh, anyway lets watch the latest video from Israel where they stone a prisoner. Ooh, maybe watch the latest beheading video from Israel... Er, what, no videos? Its only Muslim countries that do that kind of thing? Saudi Arabia and Iran? Keep spinning Mist, keep spinning.

Stoning was a punishment in Judaism until around 30 A.D. However some countries still practice it under Islamic Law - despite not being in the Qur'an. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoning

Back to the article, it's their law - however terrible the punishment is. Let's just hope that the trial was a real one and that the punishment changes.

The mullahs are not going to let her go to the land of string bikinis? Now there is a surprise!

@MistWizard I'm pretty sure you didn't know that there was about a 98% chance she was raped, not consensual. In the majority of these kinds of cases the women did not agree to intercourse and will still be persecuted as having an adulterous relationship. They still haven't mentioned much about the punishment for the 2 men involved. There is not justice in Islamic law for women.

Remember, as far as they're concerned she would have had to have 4 other women to witness for her against 2 men, since the testimony of one woman is only half the value of a "mans".

It would be saving a life but Brazil could do better for its own people before meddling into another country's affairs.

Apparenty Iran would also benefit from sending -all- their women elsewhere.

I understand the Sharia rule is that she would need 4 MEN to witness for her against the rape charge. Correct me if I am wrong, but that was the rule I read many times in similar Sharia stoning cases before.

Needless to say, the chance that a woman could escape the conviction and subsequent death in a Shariah country is nil.

I wish Mexico would export our caputured narcos to be stoned to death over in lovely Iran!
