Whipping in Iran

Tuesday October 11, 2011
I've Been Thinking:
Peyman Aref is a student at Tehran University.
Aref had written a letter to the president and did not begin in the customary manner by writing "Salaam," which means "peace upon you."
Because he did not use the proper greeting or salutation he was given 74 lashes - with a whip.
Crime and punishment in Iran are incomprehensible to the Western mind.
