Prominent detained Iranian human rights lawyer, Nasrin Sotoudeh, faces up to 34 years in prison and 148 lashes, after two grossly unfair trials. The charges against her stem solely from her peaceful human rights work, including her defense of women protesting Iran’s abusive forced hijab (veiling) laws, and her outspoken opposition to the death penalty.

She has been prosecuted on seven charges, some of which are related to her opposition to forced hijab laws, including 'inciting corruption and prostitution' and ‘openly committing a sinful act… by appearing in public without a hijab.’ Some of her legitimate activities that the authorities have cited as ‘evidence’ against her include: opposing forced hijab; removing her headscarf during prison visits; defending women who peacefully protested against forced hijab; giving media interviews about the violent arrest and detention of women protesting against forced hijab; and placing flowers at the scene where a woman protester was violently arrested. Other charges brought against her include 'forming a group with the purpose of disrupting national security' and are based, in part, on her work with three human rights groups including the Campaign for Step by Step Abolition of the Death Penalty.”

I like to take this opportunity to congratulate all those lovelies claiming to care about peace and human rights, and yet are silent as a mouse in opposing the 24/7 savagery of the unreformable, warmongering and uber-international terror sponsoring Islamist fascism ruling over Iran.

Well done lovelies, well done.

Airtight sanctions - which includes oil - a la against the despicable South Africa apartheid, works. U.S. lawmakers get to it.
