It seems the world is beset by religious fundamentalists. Catholics. Baptists. Zionists. Islamists.
All happy to kill people in the name of some holy book.
You can’t have missed the case of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, condemned by an Iranian religious court to be stoned to death, due to some ludicrous stricture laid down by a sixth-century sheep-herder.
This is insane.
Now we hear that Mohammas Mostafaei, the courageous Iranian lawyer defending Sakineh, has been abducted, presumably by the Islamic cavemen who hold ordinary Iranians in their insane religious grip.
People aren’t stupid, and Iranians are among the most sophisticated in the history of the world. These are the Persians. And yet, they’ve been overtaken by the sort of certainty that has given the world most of its oppressions.
It seems they’re not entirely impervious to international opinion, and therefore we can do something about this latest outrage.
Go here and do THIS.
