Those lovely Muslims...

Iran to hang teenage girl attacked by rapists
Tehran, Iran, Jan. 07 – An Iranian court has sentenced a teenage rape
victim to death by hanging after she weepingly confessed that she had
unintentionally killed a man who had tried to rape both her and her
She described how the three men pushed her and her 16-year-old niece
Somayeh onto the ground and tried to rape them, and said that she took out a
knife from her pocket and stabbed one of the men in the hand.As the girls tried
to escape, the men once again attacked them, and at this point, Nazanin said,
she stabbed one of the men in the chest. The teenage girl, however, broke down
in tears in court as she explained that she had no intention of killing the man
but was merely defending herself and her younger niece from rape, the report
said.The court, however, issued on Tuesday a sentence for Nazanin to be hanged
to death.

And as I understand it, it was a lose-lose situation for the poor girl. Those peaceful Muslims also are know to stone rape victims.
Remind me again - why aren't liberal feminists fighting for the real victims in the world? This girl needs advcocates more than Anita Hill did.
