"Dark Ages are alive and kicking in modern-day Iran"

Peter Tatchell writes on Britian's far left's collusion with Islamo-fascism. Tatchell's a Gay Activist in Britian and has written on the betrayal of fundamental principlies by today's left.
Franco’s Spain and Pinochet’s Chile were tea parties by comparison to Iran’s Islamist bloodfest. Since the ayatollah’s seized power in 1979, nearly 100,000 Iranians have been murdered – including socialists, trade unionists, communists, feminists, journalists, students, lawyers, writers, doctors, human rights activists and religious and ethnic leaders.

In the four months following the June election of hardline President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, over 80 people are known to have been executed or sentenced to death. Under Iranian law, girls as young as nine and boys as young as 15 can be hanged. So far this year, seven children have been executed.

Torture is endemic. The barbaric tortures inflicted in the name of Islam include the cutting out of prisoner’s eyes, crushing their heads in metal vices, and forcing boiling water into their ears. The Dark Ages are alive and kicking in modern-day Iran.
