Holy ... fuck?

Fuck me sideways:

In the Islamic Republic it is illegal to execute a young woman, regardless of her crime, if she is a virgin


Sounds good, doesn't it? Go read the rest then.

One can of course get round this law by having the accused spend time with prison warders.Iran is a police state.Like Britain.

Ah the old 'The Jews are just as bad as the Arabs' theme kicks in pretty quickly.

Just remind me, how many free democratic elections have taken place in Israel over the last 30 years?

And no, I'm not Jewish either.

Groves is an old Jewish name. Gravenberg, originally. David Beiber is a national hero.

All EU countries are by definition police states, Turkey and Iran have been police states since 1979.

So what else is new? But stripping girls of their virginity so that they can be executed is sick...

In fact its abominable

HNL I take exception. Scandinavia & Netherlands are free. Romans used to deflower virgins before execution.

This is legal thinking, not religious thinking. There is nowhere on Earth that this kind of thing could not have happened at some time in history.

The relentless logic of the Law applied without compassion? Yes, sobers, the Jews could have done such a thing.
