      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.
