QuoteThis film is breathtaking beyond words. It honestly left me speechless. I struggle even to put this review into words. It show's the brutal reality of abuse and discrimination in a powerful way. The tears in the eyes of Soraya's children after she is publicly executed. The anger in the eyes and hearts of the men as they kill her. A lot could be said of the stunning performances, the brilliant writing etc. But this movie has something that goes far beyond entertainment and artistic value. It gives a glimmer of hope to those suffering this kind of abuse through out the world. It takes a megaphone to a sleeping culture and says "You shall not be forgotten". The Hurt Stalker

QuoteThe Stoning of Soraya M. (Persian: .سنگسار ثريا &#1605 is a 2008 American drama film adapted from French-Iranian journalist Freidoune Sahebjam's 1994 book of the same name based on a true story. The film is directed by Cyrus Nowrasteh and stars Academy Award nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo, as well as James Caviezel and Mozhan Marnò. Stoning had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it was the runner-up for the Audience Choice Award. It was also the second runner-up for the Cadillac People's Choice Award. The book has been banned in Iran because of its perceived critical attitude toward the Iranian legal system.[2]Stoned

QuoteStranded in a remote Iranian village, Sahebjam is approached by Zahra, a woman with a harrowing tale to tell about her niece, Soraya, and the bloody circumstances of her death the day before. Her story attempts to expose what it perceives as the inhumanity of Sharia Law. Her last and only hope for justice lies in the hands of the journalist, who must escape with the story - and his life - in order to communicate the violence to the world.

QuoteThe international bestseller book tells the true story of one of the victims of stonings in modern Iran. Soraya M.'s husband Ghorban-Ali was an ambitious man, prone to rage with a lust for power. He wanted a way out of his marriage in order to marry a 14 year old girl but did not want to support two families or return Soraya's dowry.[3] When Soraya began cooking for a friend's widowed husband, he found his excuse: abetted by village authorities, he accused his wife of adultery. She was taken away, buried up to her waist, and then stoned to death.

QuoteThe verdict against Soraya M., was carried out in a village called Kupayeh, but it could have been almost anywhere in rural Iran. It could happen, and does still, in Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nigeria, or anyplace where sharia is the law of the land. More common, by far, in the Muslim world is the perverse practice of "honor killings" -- the slaying of a woman or girl by male members of her own family on the basis of some presumed sexual indiscretion. The barbarity of this practice is mirrored by its Orwellian description, for it is one of the most dishonorable practices in the world.An Inconvenient Wife

Most people are not interested in human rights as the absolute rule system of human interaction. They want to ignore it, bend it, instrument it, .. because they think they stand on the "right side". If the "side" changes, they become whiny, meek, servile .. and ask for the return to the absoluteness of it.Love-your-next? Oh-yes-provided-she-"is"-one-of-us.

QuoteSoraya M was murdered by the Islamic equivalent of the Tea Party amnd Pastor Jones -- provincial demagogues who don't like to be crossed by someone with a sense of humanity and the courage to act on it.Fermion's psychobabble proclamations that someone is like a fascist, or someone is just like islamic terrorist, or like a killer of women remind me often this pearl from "Stuff White People Like". "Being a truly advanced white person means being able to speak with authority about pretty much any field of conversation- especially politics. In order for white people to streamline the process of knowing everything, all human beings can be neatly filed into one of two categories: People I Agree With, and People Who are Just Like Adolf Hitler."Did tea party and pastor Jones stone some woman, Ferm? I'd like to hear about it to understand the evidence for the likeness between them and those who did. "Sense of humanity"? Sense of humanity had as much to do with stoning her as the smell of your dirty underwear. She was stoned after being accused of infidelity. I didn't see the movie, but i saw an actual cell phone video of stoning of a young girl in Afghanistan -- it was not demagogues, pastor Jones, or Tea Party activists who stoned her. By the way, are you still working on the evidence that "all religions" and islam in particular express some demand or desire for separation of State and religion, just like Christianity does?
