Really Ticked Today.....

Here's a charming story courtesy of those fun folks in Iran. It seems that a 16 year-old girl was hanged by a local Islamic court for "engaging in acts incompatible with chastity". Translation: the girl was either a rape victim or engaged in premarital sex, and she told the judge that he should (sic) "punish the main perpetrators of moral corruption not the victims". This apparently angered local judge Haji Reza so much that he facilitated a quick public execution for her (OK'd by those swell guys at the Islamic Supreme Court). So Reza boy decides to take matters into his own hands and personally puts the rope around the girl's neck, and signals the crane operator to lift away. Notice what I just said - the crane operator. Those high moralists in Iran conduct hangings by attaching the rope to a crane, and lifting the unfortunate off the ground. Hanging became quite a science in the 1800s due to any number of botched jobs leading to decapitations and strangulations, therefore the "long drop" procedure (dropping someone through the trap with the noose positioned properly and with a length of rope such that the neck receives an impulse of 1260 foot pounds causing the dislocation of the vertebrae in the neck) became standard. Properly done, the object of the exercise was instantly unconscious and expired shortly thereafter. Hanging by suspension (in other words, just jerking someone up, e.g. with a crane) has long since been disused in civilized countries as it causes the exercise to be unnecessarily cruel and prolonged. The implications for this poor girl are obvious.

Let's see, our neighbors to the North are asking for more understanding of sharia law so that its local adherents can be more, ahem, comfortable. Likewise in Eurabia. Funny how when some slob who kills eight cops gets an easy ride to the other side with a lethal injection the Euros and the Canadians squawk bloody murder at how nekulturny we are, but I haven't heard a peep out of them as to how they can square their consciences with this. Oh that's right. Since the perpetrators of this are card-carrying members of the Religion Of Peace (tm, spit, feh), we need to understand their ways. A plague upon all their houses.

Since we're on the topic of the Religion Of Peace (tm, spit, feh) and their facilitators in Europe, here's a little practice session in Paris for the next Kristallnacht.

French President Jacques Chirac condemned the center's destruction and said the government was "determined to find the perpetrators of this unacceptable act so that they can be tried and convicted with the greatest severity" that the law allows.

The case has been referred to Paris criminal investigators, the Paris Police Department said.

Uh, yeah.

That really solves things, doesn't it Jacques? A condemnation. And if things get really serious and bad, they'll issue a strong condemnation. You gotta love Chirac, though, he's a real traditionalist, strongly following the traditions of Laval and Petain (incidentally, consider that both Laval and Petain were awarded the "honor" of being shot for their crimes, as opposed to the normal ignominious methods of hanging and/or beheading used with assorted bad types at the end of that little party in 1945).

All together now, "Les Francais Sont Cochons". The only Farsi curse I could find before I got totally pissed off was "Madaretah sag gayeedah", which has something to do with dogs and mothers.
