god hates women, episode 1

TODAY'S installment of "god hates women" is brought to you by allah.

Just like America, Iran is a theocracy, which means that all laws are are essentially derived from the imaginary friends of the schizophrenic in power. This means that we can safely assume that any judgment handed down by the courts, is god's will. And apparently, its god's will that women be gang-raped. This is the only possible conclusion I can come to, after reading that a teenage girl that killed one of three men trying to gang-rape her and her niece was sentenced to death, and is to be publicly hanged.

The state-run daily Etemad reported that the clerical regime's judiciary has condemned an 18-year-old girl for killing a man who attempted to rape her.

The victim, identified as Nazanin, was attacked when only 17 by three men who attempted to rape her and her niece. In the scuffle that followed, Nazanin acted in self-defense which resulted in the death of one of the attackers. She testified in court: "“I only committed homicide while trying to defend myself and my niece. I had no intention of killing that man. At that moment I didn't know what to do because nobody came to help us."

Granted, we only have her word that it was self defence, she could have been lying right?

The murderous judges ignored Nazanin'’s testimony, the facts in the case and the testimony of eye-witnesses that corroborated her version of the incident, and condemned her to death. The assailants were reportedly members of the suppressive paramilitary Bassij force in the city of Karaj (west of Tehran).

Maybe not. But why let facts get in the way? And this is coming from a religion that professes to respect and honour their women.
