This email was forwarded to me. I don't know if Middle Easterners are going to listen to voices of mercy from the same country that is declaring war on their neighbors, but seeing this photo makes me have to try.
I write this mail in English so I won't have to do it twice.
I send you a link to an online petition. It condemns the excecution last week
of two Iranian boys (Mahmoud Asgari aged 16, and Ayaz Marhoni, 18 years old)
because of their homosexual relationship. Attached is a picture of the boys,
minutes before they were excecuted.
Officially they have been convicted for the rape of a 13 year old boy. But
human rights organisations believe this accusation has been made up, in order
to prevent public sympathy for the boys. The 13-year old 'victim' was never
found, and the rape hasn't been proven.
Human rights groups claim the government of Iran excecuted more than 4000 gays
and lesbians over the past 25 years. That's more than one person every 3 days.
This must be stopped.
Please sign the form, and forward this message to as many people as possible.
It's easy to be sarcastic and and say it isn't going to help. But not doing
anything CERTAINLY isn't going to make a difference.
Here's the link:
Thanks for your help.
