It was just yesterday when Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, used the protests in Ferguson to lecture the United States on racial discrimination and justice.

If US govt has a power, then it should use it to solve its own problems& put an end to racial discrimination. #Ferguson #Syria #Iraq 4/13/94

Khamenei today posted a YouTube video to prove his point, but somehow overlooked the impending execution of Reyhaneh Jabbari, who is scheduled to be hanged tomorrow for killing her rapist in self-defense.

Shocking that an Iranian woman could be hanged tomorrow for killing her rapist in self-defence. http://t.co/pW9R6KSjjn

@CanadaIran @HonJohnBaird they have no rights. Let's just destroy the Middle East. Case closed.

The International Business Times reports:

Iran has upheld its decision to execute Rayhaneh Jabbari, charged with the murder of a man who allegedly attempted to rape her.

Jabbari, 26, spent seven years in prison and her execution by hanging could be carried out as early as tomorrow (Tuesday, 30 September), according to local reports.

Jabbari was arrested in 2007, after she had killed a member of the Iranian Intelligence Services, Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, who she said tried to rape her.

Crimes punishable with a death sentence [in Iran] include cursing the Prophet, drug offences, murder, adultery, incest, rape, fornication, drinking alcohol, “sodomy”, homosexual sex, “being at enmity with God” (mohareb), and “corruption on earth” (mofsed fil arz).

@PahlaviReza What can we do for her? Unfortunately she is in the hands of mullas.
