Death For Affair, 15 Years For Assisting With Murder

Isn't Sharia (Islamic law) just great. This woman was put to death for having an affair and got a mere 15 years for helping with the murder of her husband. What sort of deranged society considers an affair worse than murder?

An Iranian woman has been sentenced to death by stoning for adultery, local media reported on Saturday.

The woman, named only as Soghra, was found guilty of having an affair with her husband's friend, the Etemad daily reported on Saturday.

She was also given a separate 15-year jail sentence for helping her lover kill her husband.

Officials say no woman has been executed by stoning for several years and that stoning sentences are routinely changed to other forms of execution, such as hanging, or lighter sentences..


What wonderful world
