The National Post investigates Iran’s regulations surrounding the practice of stoning. In this case, stoning is used as a punishment for adultery.
Hard to believe our western politicians suck up to the perpetrators of these barbaric practises, by not condemning the Islamic ideology these people follow and preventing its spread. Sickening Western world Appeasement , I’ve seen it all to often.
I never imagined that they dug a hole and put the person in it and bound them. I always imagined stoning more as chasing somebody out of town while throwing rocks at them. If the person could at least flee into exile it wouldn’t be nearly as bad. But they are attacking a completely defenseless individual which makes it even more sickening.
Yes I always pictured it that way. Burying someone like that and them bashing her head in with rocks… just horrible.
Its so much worse when they explain it with images. Bronze age barbarism.
That’s what I thought… a monkey proof How To manual!
“Bronze age barbarism” is exactly what came to my mind… Images make it even worse, for sure. I don’t know what I necessarily imagine that could be better but a detailed graphic like this… God…
It just really hits home when you see it like that…
I like the bronze age barbarism combined with the respectable veneer of modern legal proceedings. It is kinda like Disneyfying execution. I am half surprised they don’t advertise it on TV.
“Stone a Slut on Saturday February 23rd! Bring the whole family! There will be pony rides, face painting and bludgeoning of a criminal! Admission and parking are free. Get there early to get a good stone.”
It’s not that bad…..
Well if you are male and good at wriggling out of a waist high hole while bound.
