And, at the risk of being called a jew, bahai, MKO supporter, monarchist, Commi, and having insultive blogs dedicated to me, I want to say this loud and clear:

Stop spreading this barbaric culture of brutality in my land. Stop turning my people into a bunch of blood thirsty, apathetic savages  by hanging people in public, in front of a crowd of children, young, old, man and woman for crime of "being against God"....  

Damn you murdering Islamist fascists & Damn your Evil God

wow, I thought that this is a divine and islamic system. What kind of capitalist nonsense is this? 

When the best religious establishment treats people on a per-burn basis, what can one expect from the infidels of the world?

There is a very simple explanation about the almost indifference of Iranian users here to tragic stories like this: They are not Palestinians. If there is breaking news that Israel shoots 20 protesters in the Golan heights it immediately illicits a response. Mention executions in Iran, the neglect of Persepopis, the drying up of Lake Urumieh you will be lucky to get 5 responses. Iranians have become desensitised and detached from their compatriots and their people. Rest assure, if this was a child.burnt by phrospherous gas by Israel you will be hearing calls for murder! What a horrible people we have become.
