      Iran hangs woman for killing her alleged rapist

She could have escaped the death penalty if the slain man’s family had agreed to accept “blood money,” a common Iranian legal practice, but relatives refused, demanding their right for "an eye for an eye."
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran hanged a woman on Saturday who was convicted of murdering a man she alleged was trying to rape her, drawing swift international condemnation for a prosecution several countries described as flawed.

Reyhaneh Jabbari was hanged at dawn for premeditated murder, the official IRNA news agency reported. It quoted a statement issued by the Tehran Prosecutor Office Saturday that rejected the claim of attempted rape and said that all evidence proved that Jabbari had plotted to kill Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, a former intelligence agent.

My first instinct after reading this further example of Islamo barbarism was use it to bitch-slap federal judges  who actively favor the introduction of Sharia law into our national Constitution; e.g. Kagan promoted Sharia; or, U.S. judge permanently bans Oklahoma Islamic law vote; etc.  I still do, but in this instance there is this to consider:

According to her 2009 sentencing, Jabbari, 27, stabbed Sarbandi in the back in 2007 after purchasing a knife two days earlier.

"The knife had been used on the back of the deceased, indicating the murder was not self-defense," the agency quoted the court ruling as saying.

If I'm a juror in an American court case, I have to find her guilty of premeditated murder, babe or no babe.

Dunno, if he had her pinned to the floor or whatever she might have got the knife into his back; jist sayin'.

exactly 007. Or "As he reached behind him to grab the rock to crush my skull I realized this was my only chance to save myself so I stabbed him."

You can't take things out of context and declare a just decision.

That said, Iran if nuckin' futz. Pisslam is nuckin' futz, and Sharia is anything but "law".
