    The Iranian regime has executed at least 1,200 people over the past year – unprecedented figures in 25 years. Iran is the world’s number one executioner on a per capita basis and it is one of a handful of executioners of juveniles.

    The regime’s treatment of women has been a hallmark of its medievalist and abhorrent nature. As recently as October, it executed a 26-year-old woman for defending herself against an intelligence agent trying to sexually assault her and last month its thugs splashed acid on the faces of two dozen women in Isfahan, central Iran. This barbaric regime is not run by moderates. Until the international community wakes up and links relief from economic sanctions to human rights improvements, then its willingly condones the continued inhumane treatment of Iran’s people by this regime with more to come.

    Those Iranians are high tech. They have adapted construction machinery and came up with a mobile hanging machine.Not that they dishonor Christians but they had a backlog of hangings that precluded a break in government work for the Christians holidays.Those are pals of Christian Putin.

    What is the relevance of Christmas to this story? Answer: Zero.

    It’s just some trash from the Washington Free Beacon, the ultimate in nonsensical Zionist tall-tale-telling.

    The goal of eliding Christmas into this story is merely to horrify the ignorant in the West and perhaps to give the impression to the hyper-ignorant that Christians are among the executed, the further implication being that they were executed FOR their Christianity.

    Is there no lie or intellectual dishonesty to which Zionist Jews will not stoop?

      Those guys on the Iranian crane are not stooping.They are standing so tall their feet won’t touch the ground.Was you there to check these guys out and see that no Christians were dangling from the crane cable?Why do they need to hang so many? Or it is a safety test to see if the cable meets specifications under a load?
