Is there really anything else you can introduce that's new from the last thread you made when the charges were first announced? Or are we just going to get more of the same?

I find it amusing that with all the other people who've been put into Evin and tortured and killed for political crimes (written off as separatists or drug slingers), that Fox and co. seem to be only concerned about someone who accepted Jesus. Not the guys who have spoken out against the government, not the guys who've gone on strike, not the women demanding rights, but some guy the evangelists have fallen in love with. I also laughed at this bit:

It is also feared that Nadarkhani will be executed in retaliation as Iran endures crippling sanctions and international pressure in response to its nuclear agenda and rogue rhetoric.

Really? This is the kind of people writing for a major news outlet? Is this what the interpretation of the author is that Iran is just executing this JUST to get back at sanctions? Really? I'd reckon there's a lot more effective ways Iran could do that without an event involving one person in its population. But Fox does want to push this for a reason, makes it easier to beat war drums in the future.

Personally, I think the case involving Hekmati is more directly 'tied' to Iran's spat with the US and others. Anyone remember him? NY Times ran a piece yesterday about the mother visiting him in Evin.

Edit- What people are 'bitching' about this? Come on. If it bothers you I won't post in this matter any more.
