Iranian woman will not be hanged
03-Nov-2010 (one comment)

PARIS - An Iranian woman accused of adultery will not be executed on Wednesday, France’s foreign minister said, citing a telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart.

German-based human rights group the International Committee against Stoning said on Tuesday Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani would be hanged on Wednesday instead of stoned, although Iranian authorities have declined to comment on the issue.

Ashtiani’s stoning sentence was suspended earlier this year after prominent political and religious figures called it medieval, barbaric and brutal. Brazil, a close ally of Iran, offered to give the 43-year-old mother of two asylum.

more cries of wolf from the anti-Iran crowd

So first they said this was all about adultery. But in actuality it was a murder case (there is a victim!).

Then they said there was a sentencing of stoning. But there was no sentencing.

Then they said her being stoned to death was imminent. But she was not stoned.

Then they said she would be hanged Wednesday. But she did not hang Wednesday.

This entire episode puts to shame the old "boy who cried wolf" fable!
