Petition: Stop the stoning of a 13-year-old child in Iran!
On October 31, I told you about Zhila Izadyar, a 13-year-old Iranian girl who has been convicted of incest, and has a child with her brother. For this she faces death by stoning, and has already been lashed 55 times. Her brother, meanwhile, is looking at 150 lashes and prison.
Now there is a petition (http://www.stoning.webbyen.dk/vishjemmeside_privat.asp?mode=top_frame&side=&id=660513; thanks to RD Sieben for the link) that you can sign to call upon the Iranian mullahs to stop this barbarity and release this girl. International publicity and pressure has worked before. Please sign.
