NO to STONING-Its BARBARIC sign now

Stoning, the deepest scar on the conscience of all humanity..

We, condemn STONING as a barbaric act against humanity.
We reject all pretexts that allow and legalize stoning.
We condemn recent wave of stoning carried out in Iran -9stoinings reported in March 2007, eight women waiting to be stoned.


We draw world attention to condemn this violent act, and ask the UN to take appropriate measures to pressure those that still use stoning as a punishment, such as the Iranian mullahs.

Top Iranian regime's official defends stoning
Sunday, 15 July 2007
TEHRAN (AFP) Mohammad Javad Larijani, the head of the Iranian judiciary's human rights committee said the judiciary supported the principle of stoning after confirmation last week of the stoning sparked international condemnation.
"We have signed four important treaties on human rights. None of them has any opposition to stoning.

"But since Westerners have their own interpretations of the articles and the contents of these documents, they oppose stoning," said Larijani, the brother of Iran's top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani.

They carefully place the mummy-like figure into a hole as if transplanting a tree in someones yard..
Hundreds of men, mostly members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard, crowd into a circle around the condemned. Then the stoning begins, seemingly spontaneously.
A man walks up to one shroud and pelts it with rocks. The camera zooms in on the bloodied lump surrounded by stones. The camera pans to the other individual. The cover is knocked off, he is face down, his head is bathed in blood.
The tape jumps to the scene of a third person brought in, shrouded.
The stoning begins with lusty yells. It is a frenzied scene devoid of humanity. Scores of stones fly quickly and strike horribly. The shroud around one head explodes into red. The two ghostly figures totter. One falls forward only to be pelted backward
The man on the right writhes as his shroud comes loose. We see his bloody torso struck by stones. We see him struggle as the pile of stones grows around him. We see the circle contract slowly until fewer than five feet separate the murderous men from the objects of their execution.

Stone throwers stand close enough to caress their victims. But they do not. Instead, they pick up more stones and fling them with all their might.

The condemned continue to writhe, to fall over, to sit back up, to fall back over. One goes suddenly still. The other rises, almost defiantly in the face of hard death.

Now the crowd stands within inches. Men pick up rocks as quickly as they can, in some macabre competition to see who will cast the last stone in the deliverance of Allah's justice.
All three figures are still.
