A British-Iranian has been sentenced by a court in Tehran to spend a year in prison as punishment for trying to attend a men’s volleyball match.

Ghoncheh-Ghavami-_3093170b
Ghoncheh Ghavami, 25, an alumni of SOAS university in London, was told her fate on Sunday by a closed court in Tehran.
Her parents were not permitted to enter the courtroom and it was not open to the public, her brother Iman told The Telegraph.
“We hoped she would be released,” he said. “She thought she had put up a good defence and was really happy with it.
Mr Ghavami, 28, said that his family spent Sunday going “from office to office” to try and see whether his sister could appeal against the sentence.
Alireza Tabatabaie, Miss Ghavami’s lawyer, said he was hopeful that her sentence could be reduced for good behaviour. He said she had been found guilty of “propagating against the ruling system.”
“It doesn’t seem right,” her brother said. “When she was arrested they were immediately suspicious of her because of her dual nationality.
„She’s physically and mentally exhausted by all this. But she’s not giving up hope.”
Miss Ghavami was detained on June 20, outside Tehran’s Azadi Stadium, where she and 40 others were demanding that women be allowed in to watch a volleyball match between Iran and Italy.
She was originally released shortly after being detained by the police – but was re-arrested ten days later, when she went to collect her belongings, and then held in solitary confinement without access to her lawyer for several weeks.
During this time interrogators are said to have put Miss Ghavami under severe psychological pressure, threatening to move her to Gharchak Prison in Tehran Province where prisoners convicted of serious criminal offences are held in dismal conditions. Interrogators reportedly warned she “would not walk out of prison alive”.
In October, having been detained without trial for over 100 days, she went on a two-week hunger strike, and was joined by her mother, which lasted until she was granted a trial. She was then charged by a court in Tehran with “activities and propaganda against the Islamic Republic.”
Her case has been closely followed by womens‘ rights campaigners around the world.
Britain, which has no permanent diplomatic presence in Iran but has said it plans to reopen its embassy soon, had previously protested against Miss Ghavami’s detention.
Iranian women in the Islamic Republic are banned from watching certain male sports events such as football and volleyball.
Kate Allen, Amnesty International UK director the verdict was “appalling”.
“It’s an outrage that a young woman is being locked up simply for peacefully having her say about how women are discriminated against in Iran,” she said.
“Ghoncheh is a prisoner of conscience and the Iranian authorities should quash the sentence and release her immediately and unconditionally.
“The authorities should also investigate allegations that Ghoncheh was subjected to death threats by her interrogators and provide compensation for her arbitrary detention and her prolonged solitary confinement.”

They want 1984, we want 1776

They are on the run, we are on the march!

Dummheit ist, wenn jemand nicht weiß, was er wissen könnte.

Political correctness ist, wenn man aus Feigheit lügt, um Dumme nicht zu verärgern, die die Wahrheit nicht hören wollen.

“Im Streit um moralische Probleme, ist der Relativismus die erste Zuflucht der Schurken.“ Roger Scruton

Antisemitismus ist, wenn man Juden, Israel übelnimmt, was man anderen nicht übelnimmt.

Islam ist weniger eine Religion und mehr eine totalitäre Gesellschaftsordnung, eine Ideologie, die absoluten Gehorsam verlangt und keinen Widerspruch, keinerlei Kritik duldet und das Denken und Erkenntnis verbietet. Der wahre Islam ist ganz anders, wer ihn findet wird eine hohe Belohnung erhalten.

Wahnsinn bedeute, immer wieder das gleiche zu tun, aber dabei stets ein anderes Resultat zu erwarten

Gutmenschen sind Menschen, die gut erscheinen wollen, die gewissenlos das Gewissen anderer Menschen zu eigenen Zwecken mit Hilfe selbst inszenierter Empörungen instrumentalisieren

Irritationen verhelfen zu weiteren Erkenntnissen, Selbstzufriedenheit führt zur Verblödung

Wenn ein Affe denkt, „ich bin ein Affe“, dann ist es bereits ein Mensch

Ein Mensch mit Wurzeln soll zur Pediküre gehen

Wenn jemand etwas zu sagen hat, der kann es immer sehr einfach sagen. Wenn jemand nichts zu sagen hat, der sagt es dann sehr kompliziert

Sucht ist, wenn jemand etwas macht, was er machen will und sucht jemand, der es macht, daß er es nicht macht und es nicht machen will.

Sollen die Klugen immer nachgeben, dann wird die Welt von Dummen regiert. Zu viel „Klugheit“ macht dumm.

Wenn man nur das Schlechte bekämpft, um das Leben zu schützen, bringt man gar nichts Gutes hervor und ein solches Leben ist dann nicht mehr lebenswert und braucht nicht beschützt zu werden, denn es ist dann durch ein solches totales Beschützen sowieso schon tot. Man kann so viel Geld für Versicherungen ausgeben, daß man gar nichts mehr zum Versichern hat. Mit Sicherheit ist es eben so.

 

Stupidity is demonstrated by people lacking the knowledge they could achieve

Political correctness can be defined as the telling of a lie out of the cowardice in an attempt to avoid upsetting fools not willing to face up to the truth

“In arguments about moral problems, relativism is the first refuge of the scoundrel.” Roger Scruton

Antisemitism is when one blames the Jews or Israel for issues, he does not blame others

Islam is less a religion and more a totalitarian society, an ideology that demands absolute obedience and tolerates no dissent, no criticism, and prohibits the thinking, knowledge and recognition. True Islam is totally different, the one who will find it will receive a very high reward.

Craziness is, when one always does the same but expects a different outcome

If a monkey thinks “I am a monkey”, then it is already a human

A man with roots should go for a pedicure

Self smugness leads to idiocy, being pissed off leads to enlightenment

If someone has something to say, he can tell it always very easily. If someone has nothing to say, he says it in a very complicated way

Addiction is, when somebody does something he wants to do, yet seeks someone who can make it so he won’t do it and doesn’t want to, either.

If the clever people always gave in, the world would be reigned by idiots. Too much „cleverness“ makes you stupid.

If one only fights evil to protect life, one produces nothing good at all and such a life then becomes no longer worth living and thus requires no protection, for it is already unlived due to such a total protection. One can spend so much money on insurance, that one has nothing left to insure. Safety works in the same way.
