Twenty-year-old Mohammad Amin Valian, a student at Iran's Damghan University, can be hanged at any time. Iran's judiciary has announced that an appeal court has upheld a death sentence against Valian in connection with a December antigovernment protest. He is among at least 11 people sentenced to death in trials following the protests that erupted after last year's disputed presidential election.

Aaron Rhodes, a spokesman with the International Campaign for Human Rights In Iran, tells RFE/RL that Valian has been convicted of "moharebeh" or "waging war against God," based on a photo taken during a protest on the December 27 religious holiday of Ashura.

individuals in order to bring attention to these atrocities. 

MOHAAREB, MY A$$.  This regime is scared sh*tless and will go to any measures to scare its citizens to remain docile. 

Death sentense based on a picture?  And, I don't care who they bring a fatwa from.  I almost feel like telling these bastards the extent of my dirty vocabulary in Farsi and English.  The least I can say right now, without being flagged, is "the title of the following blog":


I wonder what our IC resident IRI sympathizers have to say about this atrocity?  Oh, I know, they will say that twenty-year-old Mohammad Amin Valian, a student at Iran's Damghan University, is secretly an Israeli agent who may have also collaborated with CIA.  Again, leat's repeat the title of the following blog:



Shame indeed & Shepesh Jaan

this is the only thing that they are efficient at: murdering people.  

Shpesh: Iranian life is worthless to them.  On the other hand, if a Palestinian gets a scratch on his forehead...well, that's a different story.
