Iran's supreme court demands removal of man's eye after he accidentally blinded another man

Rebel Staff
 

Iran's supreme court judges believe in 'an eye for an eye' in the case of a man accused of blinding another man during a street fight.

According to The Jerusalem Post, a 28-year-old man only identified as Saman unintentionally blinded a man with a metal rod during a street fight. He was only 23 at the time.

Iran Human Rights states that, “The blinding punishment is part of a retribution sentence issued by the Supreme Court to Saman for allegedly blinding another man during a street fight.”

The date of implementation of the sentence has not been announced.

“Drew, I do not know where the subject of abortion came in.
In terms of lefties and righties and progressive and contards and all that, aren’t those really terms borrowed from U.S. talk shows? I am not sure the terms are that helpful in the Canadian context.”

Tell that to the Socialists in Canada that first started using that lingo and integrating it into our language usage. Junior himself is desperately trying to become a copy of Obama who happens to also be an apologist and appeaser of highest rank.

Jay Kelly why do lefties always act as if only Christians and righties are against certain things, many atheists and lefties hate abortion and want tougher justice as well. There are multiple LGBT groups against abortion and many left wing atheists want a true justice system.

Jay Kelly when did this happen? They do not want this for accidental harm. You may want to read the story.

There are a lot of so—called “righties” in the U.S. who favour exactly this type of justice.

If you give someone a permanent disability during a “street fight”, then you don’t get to call that an “accident”. That said, Iran is showing its legal sophistication by still having on the books the Code of Hammurabi from 1754 BC.

Well, Iran is the world leader in the beheading of children under 13 years of age as well – usually for crimes against the state.

When it comes to islamics – literally nothing surprises me.

As all concerned were Muslims it would be pointless to call this punishment draconian but I would bet that the perpetrator dose not intend to remove anybody else’s Eye.

“Hmmm – physical repayment for tort regardless of mens rea (intent) – no progressive justice where the accidental blinder pays a settlement to help alleviate the difficulties of making a living with one eye – sounds just like old testament Saduccee talmudic law – eye for and eye, tooth for tooth – what is it with these desert cultures that justice evades them?”

Bill,
This is not the first time that your writing appears very anti-Semitic. I am disappointed that someone that appears to be intelligent can also appear so stupid [at times]. Your post reads as if you are trying to blame the Jews for this current evil deed that took place in Iran.

Islam, which appeared long after Judaism and Christianity, is the only “desert culture” as you phrased it that continues to this day with all of its 7th century barbaric practices intact. They refuse to reform. Judaism was reformed, Christianity was reformed, only Islam is not reformed.

Sharia Law for Canada! I see it coming. God help us all with this idiot for a prime minister.

Welcome to the 7th century – or modern Arab nations…

Sharia law – so if Pig Wynne is prosecuted for stealing dollars, do the masses get to stone Pig Wynne to death???

C’mon Pig Wynne – lets get some of that Sharia rolling in Ontario.
