The Death Sentence of Delara Darabi

The Death Sentence of Delara Darabi



Dear friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I write these words: Yet another innocent Iranian girl faces imminent risk of execution by the Islamic regime for a crime that she never committed.

On Saturday, January 27, 2007, Iran's Supreme Court upheld the death sentence of Delara Darabi for a second time. Delara, who is now 20 years old, faces death by public hanging for a murder that took place when she was 17 years old. According to newspaper and court reports, a fter murdering a woman related to Delara, Delara's 19 year old boyfriend, Amir Hossein, convinced Delara to admit responsibility for the murder to protect him from execution. Apparently, both teenagers believed that because Delara was under the age of 18, she could not be sentenced to death. This belief proved to be devastatingly false.

With complete disregard for its obligations under the International Convention on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) , and despite overwhelming evidence of Delara's innocence, as well as the teenager's repeated denials about having had any role in the commission of the crime, a court in the city of Rasht found the girl-child guilty of murder based solely on her initial claim of responsibility and sentenced her to death by hanging. Since that ruling, the Islamic regime has repeatedly demonstrated patent disregard for its promises to the international community and to the rights of Iranian children by upholding Delara's death sentence.

Until recently, Delara had proven to be a remarkably poised young prisoner with an amazing talent for painting and drawing. She had used her gift to compile a diary of her pain as a child prisoner on death row. From the dark confines of her prison cell, Delara produced an impressive collection of paintings that speak of the horrors of prison, of torture, of beatings, of hopelessness, loneliness, and the loss of a child's innocence. They are haunting images of injustice and brutality. They are the stories of the innocent women and children of Iran, shackled by the injustices of a brutal regime. They are a teenager's diary of crimes against humanity committed by the very government that should serve as her protector, but is, instead, her jailer and her executioner.

In retaliation to exposing their horrifying crimes, the officials of the Islamic regime took away the only remaining outlet of Delara's pain: They confiscated her painting materials. When Delara used coal and whatever else she could find to paint her pain on the walls of her prison, they subjected the young artist -- nicknamed "prisoner of colors" -- to brutal forms of emotional and physical abuse. They banned her from painting altogether, and they prevented her from having any visitors or contacting her lawyer except for twice a month briefly by phone. Their abuse proved too much for young Delara, who, true to her sensitive disposition as an artist, wears her pain woefully close to the surface of her skin.

On January 20, 2007, Delara attempted suicide by cutting her wrists.

Fortunately, her cell-mate noticed the incident and called for help. Delara's emaciated body was rushed to the hospital, where, by what can only be deemed a miracle, doctors were able to revive her and bring her back to life. As of the date of this letter, Delara remains in critical condition and weighs only 35 kilos. Her family and those close to her case are extremely worried about her health, both physically and emotionally.

The silent screams of innocent girls like Delara must be acknowledged by each and every one of us. We MUST express our outrage, voice our anger, and show our support to those who can not speak for themselves. Anything less would be less than human, less than American, and most certainly, less than Persian .

As humans with a conscious and a heart, we owe this to young Delara and to every innocent life that is subjected to the brutalities of an evil regime. We owe this to the daughters of Cyrus the Great. We owe this to humanity.

Please express your outrage and stand up for the rights of a girl-child who can not stand up for herself by signing this petition:

YOUR SILENCE ONLY SERVES AS A REINFORCEMENT OF DELARA'S DEATH SENTENCE.

Hi,

No disrespect intended, but who was killed?

And, since U referenced on that which is in-American, well in many states 14 year olds can be trial and sentenced as an adult based on the severity of the alleged crime.

They sound Armenians to me? Who is Moslem, who is Christian? And, as I understand they are in Iran where religion rules, so petition will do didly shit, U need connections like the big Christian mochaco calling the bug Islamic mochach and come up with a deal.

Where is the Jewish conspirator in this, I ponder? I will be surprised if Ahreman did non have his hands in this.

Also I looked up some 007 database, Maskanian, comes across as Masked Armenian name and furthermore Bahram is a Ahoramazdayee name. Now tell us who are U?

Where did the Armenian Zoro, I mean Mask-man go? I asked a simple question, who got waked?

Let this be a lesson to Moslems, Bahayees, Ahoramazdayees, all non Catholics, and morons alike! If U convert to Catalysis, U can do all the homicides and genocides of your wildest dreams and then U go to confessions and repent your sins and wala, U are back to expressway to high Heaven where U shall mingle with angels and God.

Being a Catholic means that God gives U a heavenly credit card with unlimited spending limit. Now this poor girl waked one mesely chisely person and now not only confessions is not cutting it, but also Alah is trying to give her tonsillectomy from her anus!

:jumpy: Dear Good Fellow Kuni:

With all no respect,

Armenians are not Catholic Christians.
Armenians are Gregorian Christians.
Gregorian is an off shoot branch of Orthodox Christianity.
Assyrians are Catholic Christians.

Dear Tazi SheBoy,

If you are going to base on people, be cute, be a wise ass, then you must have the background knowledge to make a joke, a remark or a wise crack! Get it Galan Gadan?

I expect by this time next year, you will learn and know much more than today, simply because you have the pleasure of being in IPC and learning from Ahreeman.

Doesn’t Amir teach you anything? Then what does he do with you all day long? :sarcas:

Evolve Tazi SheBoy…………..Evolve………..
Educate yourself, Bache Kuni…………….Educate…………

Sincerely,
:firedvl:

Oh grate, the Jewish Price enlightend!

What’s the problem X? As I see, it can be one of the following:
a) U are an Armenian pretending to be a Jewish Price.
b) U are out of Preparation-H.
c) The significant other (hopefully a she) put “PESTOON” in your holy of holies.
