SHOCK PHOTOS: Condemned Iranian Man Weeps on Executioner’s Shoulder

The criminal executions of two young men accused of “forceful possession”, “waging war against God”, and “corruption on earth” took place this week inside the mullahs’ regime.

A shocking photo from the public execution is making waves around the world. Alireza Mafiha, an Iranian man convicted of street robbery in Tehran, was waiting for the gallows on Sunday when he laid his head on his executioner’s shoulder and began weeping.

Moments later the regime hanged him. (YNet)

Sisters of victims of hanging watch as their brothers are being hanged by the regime. (NCR-Iran)

But the crying did not help. The two men were hung anyway.

    And these who live by any god before them think that this punishment is justifiable for the crime they committed. These who force brutality will suffer the same fate in their after life by which ever God they worship. These who are the true beasts are the ones that will be lead to fires of hell. They await their place in hell along side the devil that sits beside their evil choices and enforements. These are not humans they are beasts. Take your country back from those that are crazy. They are mentally unstable and will continue to do mentally unstable acts against the people if you allow them. There is no soul in the mentally crazy.. They want yours and and power to control it..

    I question your use of “shock” in the headline.

    There is nothing “shocking” or even mildly surprising in these photos.

    How many beheadings or by Musloid savages have you watched?

    Not enough, if you think this is shocking.

    “Sad” photos, yes. Incredibly sad.

    Actually, it’s stoning far worst when you see victims especially women so called adultery. I wonder how the sisters going to survive without male brothers protecting them.

  • JDR-Taq

    I bet you could find more professors than you have fingers and toes who would excuse this.

    And I mean, they would excuse this if it were happening in Dearborn, MI or Northern VA.

    I bet there are authors at Salon dot com who would also excuse this, even in America.

    Marxists are such cowards.

    Go nuts on Christians for speaking about sin, and for attempting to use reason, OMG, IN PUBLIC. What an attack on me. Someone spoke to me today about “Jeebus” and it was a Physical Assault that I will call “shoving it down my throat”, and I will cry and pretend to be a victim of their “Sky-fairy” cruelty. For talking to me.

    But ropes and cranes for gays and non-believers? I got no problem with that. It’s Multicultural! That means good! Besides, witch trials in the 1500s!

    re: [mentally unstable]

    July 10, 2012

    In the land of “mentally unstable” – by D. Asghar

    [When the news reached the Twitterverse that a man was burnt alive in Bahawalpur, it just created a cycle of shock and disbelief. Very regretfully, this scribe was not shocked one bit. Knowing full well, what we are capable of and how low we have stooped in the past, this was just part of the ongoing continuum.

    The irony of the matter is, that a person who was supposedly and reportedly, mentally unstable was found desecrating the pages of Holy Quran. I am no religious scholar, but from what little I know about my faith, such individuals are exempt from all religious obligations, such as prayer, fasting, alms etc. The basis of course is, that these people are not able to decipher between the right and wrong due to their state of mind. Similarly, even the sane people are prohibited from praying, if they are under the influence of any substance, as it mirrors an unstable mind. Hence to expect discretion from such a person is absolutely futile.

    The irony of the matter is, that otherwise sane people who perhaps lead normal lives, were unable to differentiate between a deranged and a normal person. When the deranged individual allegedly desecrated the Holy Book, people were upset beyond belief. The basis of every religion is Good. Good teaches us to maintain sanity at all times and have an unyielding faith in our Creator. Let’s assume for a minute that this allegedly blasphemous act was done by a sane person. What would be the appropriate redress for such an act. Definitely not disobeying the law and threatening police and ultimately burn the person to death.

    A society that is so upset with its own shortcomings, failures and internal fissures, tends to lean towards such barbaric acts. This is in a way all the bottled up frustrations of self humiliation, which erupt in such an inhumane manner on the most vulnerable elements and members of the society.

    But wait why was I not surprised or impacted, as I said earlier. A society that accepts people blown into pieces at places of worship so regularly, where women parade without clothes as a punishment, where rape and sodomy are protected to salvage the family honor, where murderers are garlanded by those who are supposed to advocate law and order and where religion is used and misused to silence dissent must be truly INSANE. So in a land of mentally unstable, if one more person was burnt alive why mourn this loss. Its not the first time that this incident occurred and trust me, it would not be the last either. Expecting sanity from an insane society is insanity, isn’t it?]

    Sharia in the Ummah States of Allah

    [Shariah is distinctly different from other religious laws, like Jewish law and
    Catholic Canon, and distinctly different from other secular foreign laws. This
    distinction rests in the fundamental Shariah doctrine that Islamic law must
    rule supreme in any jurisdiction where Muslims reside. In the case where
    Muslims are few, they are permitted to comply as minimally necessary with
    the secular “law of the land,” but according to authoritative and still quite
    extant Shariah law, Muslim adherents to this legal doctrine may not accept
    secular or local laws as superior to or even equal to Shariah’s dictates. This
    creates an explicit doctrine to introduce Shariah law and replace U.S. legal
    systems with Shariah for the local Muslim population.

    You put it straight and simple. All you said is absolutely correct. In the land of mentally unstable one cannot expect sane behavior. But, I must think with a sane mind that there are some within the unstable land there are some sane and know that what the majority do is insanity. They are the minority and are left to go along to get along as we are witnessing here in our own country on a scale never seen before. This is why we are in the state of mind were in and the place this country is headed, the elected that we placed in office to guard the hen house never did. They went along for the ride to get along and it has cost this nation dearly. Their wanting to play for the home team but their home team was never the USA. Their greed has cost us our country and soon may cost us millions of lives..They too are mentally unstable right here in America.

  • Islam is the devil’s religion. It “appears” to have good elements only as a cover. It is really a bad religion that allows evil mean with evil hearts to destroy other humans in the name of god.

    Now Christianity went through something like this, but the perversion was limited to the insane criminals and sociopaths in power who claimed to be Christians. Most faithful were good people. However, Islam is not that. Islam is an excuse to act at your basest and feel justified.

    I ask a simple question. Why does the rest of the world think they can deal with, trust or forgive this?

    It will end up them or us. Just like the last twenty one Crusades.

    Ah to have someone in charge get that.

  • Hugh

    Heartbreaking. Yes, Islam the merciful, peaceful, and clearly very proportional religion. How vile they are.

  • Crazy


    Exactly, correct. Their plan to vs good against evil is seen in everything they do, say. Their absolute attempts are beyond innocent they are blatant. They have scripted their good vs evil for some time and it makes no threat to them that it is as openly spoken and versed as it is now. They will continue to escalate this scheme in all areas of race, religion, income equality, political choices, state and federal aid, the haves and have nots, and every arena they can pit one against the other. Bring a face, focus to good and evil regardless if it is truth. They will find untruth in it just to reach the goal, agenda. They must at all cost have the guise that they are the saviors of good and are there to destroy the evil. People that believe their insane minds are themselves unstable, dependent on another for a life line, thought, leadership and are in no way leaders, independent. We have millions of unstable people that believe the elected are there to protect them from evil, when truth is they are the evil.

    They have been coming out in force recently talking about cyber security, viruses, RED OCTOBER , Java, and slue of others, why, because they are priming us. Going to shut it down under threat, attack. They know that the natives are very, very restless with the gun bans and are ready to explode.

    @ JDR and bg.. And all else..please read..

    This may flag me by suggesting this. I have read and spoken to others that were flagged and paid a visit from the men in black because they listed some survival means and it was picked up in cyber space. Was not welcomed by the rulers. It is official we are in transition of a socialistic country. Freedom of speech is eroding as we speak. When one is no longer able to list survival items on a blog to help others in the event of catastrophe, it’s then your antennas should raise and tune into channel Gov. For they are forbidding the people the privilege of helping anyone in a survival situation. Why would you think they would do this ? Can only be two reasons only..
    They don’t want us to survive or they don’t want others teaching others how to survive. Take your pick, I have mine.

    But what I will say and not list, is you all must make preparations for survival.. Think, think every chance you have and make lists. Buy as much as you can possibly buy for a three months plan. Communication is going to be very important. To be in contact with family, loved ones, you must find something in the event the net, cells are shut down.. There are other forms you can communicate, think and implement. Please use your sane minds, put them to great use and plan. Pass it on to all you love, without defining what to actually get, they will know if they are sane what to buy and they will be ready. But your communications are of utmost importance.. Think and implement and may the lord watch over you and yours. Walk with him and he will carry you when you feel you can’t go on..

    If I remember correctly from Dostoevsky’s classic “Crime and Punishment” the punishment is for the crime itself – not to be used as a deterrent.

    [NCRI –

    The Iranian regime publically hanged Alireza Mafiha, 20, and Mohammad
    – Ali Sarvari, 23, accused of Moharebeh(waging war against God) and
    “corruption on earth”, on Sunday morning, January 20, 2013. The two
    young men had been accused of stealing 150 thousand Tomans (less
    than 35 Euros) while carrying cold weapons. Even though the plaintiffs
    in the case had opposed the sentence, the regime hanged the two
    young prisoners to follow its own objectives in creating an atmosphere
    of horror, fear, and absolute repression in order to prevent any public
    expression discontent especially as the regime’s sham presidential
    election is approaching.

    According to state-run media, the theft had occurred less than 7 weeks
    ago on December 2nd, and the two youths were arrested on December
    15. That means the entire process leading to executions took only 6
    weeks. The so-called court session was presided by regime’s henchman
    judge Salavati who has a dreadful record of arbitrary executions and
    must be brought to justice for crimes against humanity.

    The first defendant’s father was killed during the war with Iraq and his
    mother is an underserved working woman; he committed this crime to
    pay for his mother’s 4 million tomans (1,000 euros) in medical expenses.

    Two other defendants in the case who are 21 and 23, were sentenced
    to 10 years in prison and 5 years of exile; they were both unemployed
    and belonged to underserved populations.]
