In Iran, Canadian/Iranian blogger Hossein Derakhshan has been sentenced to 19.5 years in jail for his unsanctioned writings about the state of Iran.
It’s a sad day for him, of course, but also for the Iranian people, who, governed by a grotesque set of fascist thugs masquerading as representatives of God, are no more free than Derakhshan is.
God willing, their sentences will be commuted and the mullahs’ reign of terror ended. Pray for Iran. The people there deserve freedom, liberty, and individual rights every bit as much as you and I do.
