How Can This Happen? Note the part where the Islamic regime is doing this to strike more fear and intimidation in their women. I thought Another One told us these were saved for the real terrible criminals who are thieves, rapists, and murderers. This woman was trying to protect her daughter from being raped by a presumably Muslim fiance. It must be a Western phenomenon, a mother's love and protection of her child.

"Iranian woman to be executed on or before April 1. Her crime? Haghighat-Pajooh murdered her "temporary husband" for attempted rape of her 15-year-old daughter from her first marriage.

Haghighat-Pajooh was originally scheduled for execution in 2002, however due to international pressure the execution was stayed. Once again however, the Islamic Republic of Iran's high tribunal has reinstated the ruling and has every intention of seeing the execution through.Her execution, is reportedly scheduled to take place by or before April 1st, which is the last day of the Persian New Year.

According to various received reports, the Islamic regime is planning to execute her quietly so that any pressure from the international human rights groups can be foiled. The Islamic regime, fearing any further protests and challenges by Iranian women, plans to use Haghighat-Pajooh's case in order to strike more fear and intimidation in the hearts of Iranian women.

Fatemeh's daughter appeals to all freedom-loving people around the world as well as international human rights groups for immediate attention to her mother's case."
