23rd  September 2010

23rd  September 1779   “’I have not yet begun to fight!’”

We lost.

I hoped the Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtani affair had push Virginia’s Governor to grant clemency to mental impaired Teresa Lewis, but I was wrong.

Now Iran can easily kill Sakineh, who was condemned for the same crime of Teresa.

But vice versa Iran can save her life acting as an humanitarian country and, in the same time, hang some dozens unknown wretches.

At any rate it will be a defeat for us “non-profit” abolitionists.

But the fight goes on

Abbiamo perso

Speravo che la vicenda di Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtani avrebbe spinto il Governatore della Virginia a concedere la grazia alla ritardata mentale Teresa Lewis, ma mi illudevo.

Ora l’Iran potrà tranquillamente uccidere Sakineh, colpevole dello stesso delitto di Teresa.

Oppure utilizzerà l’occasione per mostrare il suo spirito umanitario e concedere la grazia, intanto che impicca qualche dozzina di sconosciuti.

Comunque vadano le cose noi abolizionisti “no-profit” abbiamo perso una battaglia.

Ma la lotta continua
