By free world standards, Iran cannot be trusted. Iran has perjured itself against humanity. The Iranian government misleads by implying that its theocratic regime is worthy of equal stature when it is unjust and inhumane for the entire world to see. The Iranian theologians’ interpretation of Shia Islam is arcane and undermines the viability of the religion in the free world. It does so by contradicting human rights and freedoms that are inalienable to all humanity.
Iran hung a young woman because she killed her alleged rapist. The young woman would be punished for having been raped, and the rapist would be free under the Iranian system of injustice. The circumstance is a severe blow to women and human rights, so significant that any negotiations with the regime should be terminated and all sanctions should be enforced to the limit.
Joined by allies, the United States has attempted to negotiate with a regime that is tantamount to being a terrorist state. The line between radicalism of the Sunni-backed ISIS and the Iranian Shia state in effect is no difference.
Benjamin Netanyahu has said many times that Iran is far more dangerous to the world than is ISIS. Each time Iran exposes its unacceptable behavior such as this, the free world has a responsibility to call them on it.
The free world cannot tolerate the existence of the state of Iran as it is. The theocracy must be abandoned by thinking Iranians who deserve to become a part of the free world.
Iran cannot be permitted to become a nuclear threshold state. As it is, Iran’s trade and commerce with the free world must be terminated completely until and unless it takes dramatic steps to replace its government with a pluralistic democracy.
Acts of inhumanity against women by the Iranian government are acts of war against the free world.

Iranian Reyhaneh Jabbari stands trial in Teheran, Iran, on December 15, 2008. She was executed Saturday.
- She was sentenced to death for the 2007 killing of a former intelligence ministry
- Rights group says she was sexually assaulted and killed her attacker in self-defense
- It says she was convicted of murder after “a flawed investigation and unfair trial
(CNN) — An Iranian woman convicted of murder — in a killing human rights groups called self-defense against her rapist — was hanged Saturday, state news agency IRNA reported.
Reyhaneh Jabbari, 26, was sentenced to death for the 2007 killing of Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, a former employee of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security.
The United Nations has said she never received a fair trial.
Her execution was originally scheduled for September 30, but was postponed. Amnesty International said the delay may have been in response to the public outcry against the execution.
Jabbari was convicted of murder after “a flawed investigation and unfair trial,” according to Amnesty International.”
