Iranian man beheaded his two sons after they witnessed him murder a woman

Death Sentence for Iranian Who Beheaded Sons

TEHRAN (Reuters) - An Iranian who beheaded his two sons after they witnessed him murder a woman was sentenced to hang Tuesday by a Tehran court, in a case that has hit Iran's front pages.

The man, known only as Ismail, pleaded guilty to beheading and dicing up the bodies of two adults and severing the heads of his sons, aged 7 and 11, newspapers and the ISNA students news agency reported.

"Ismail suspected his wife Masoumeh of having an affair with a man called Ebrahim. He then forced her to marry him in a lavish ceremony attended by some 700 guests," Naser Seraj, the head of penal courts in Tehran province, told ISNA.

Ismail then killed Ebrahim and his sister Fatemeh.

"I had beheaded sheep before and I felt Fatemeh was a sheep so I cut her head off and chopped her body to small pieces. I placed her head in a tray which scared the life out of my children," he was quoted as saying by Etemad newspaper.

After learning that his sons had witnessed Fatemeh's murder, Ismail beheaded them.

Seraj said Ismail received two death sentences for killing the adults. Under Iran's Islamic law a father need only pay blood money for killing his children.

Masoumeh was sentenced to death for her affair with Ebrahim. Adultery is punishable by death in Iran.

I wonder if he'll last decades in prison, litigating his death penalty case.

We just need to be more understanding of their culture. There is no "right way" or "wrong way".

Ah, kvrdave chimes in with the ever-so-predictable liberal mockery. What took you so long?

Maybe you missed the part about him being sentenced to death? I wonder what other cultures say about American society when they read about Jeffrey Dahmer.

Liberals do think that way? Holy crap....I do need to start mocking them.

edit: I was actually refering to

and not the death sentence.

I wish they had an Islamic edition of The People's Court. It would be cool to see Rusty chop some redneck bitch's hand off for stealing her friend's dog.

If he were here and did this, he would be a nutjob. And yet Islamic Law doesn't see him that way. Pretty telling.

Since he was sentenced on Tuesday, he's probably already dead.

No, he caught them also, but someone saw him behead the last person, and managed to get away...

Yep, The US judicial system is so much better than Islamic law. Islamic law is so flawed, unlike the US one

Dave, at the end of the day, both have their faults [and yes, this is a very bad fault]. There are elements of Islamic law I'd like to see in an ideal law system; there are elements I wouldn't. Similarly, there are great things about the US one - just as there are negatives.

As people have said - this guy did get convicted for two murders. At the end of the day, that's a good result - even if he didn't officially get convicted for something he should have. In the US, he'd probably have been deemed insane and spent a life in a mental hospital - in relative comfort.

Actually, the point I was trying to get across was that because of societal values, the way a person could treat their wife and kids under Islamic law in many parts of the world, would only be done by someone who is actually deranged here. That to me is very telling about what our societal values are.

We're not crazy. It's the other people that are crazy.
