Sadists Run Iran; Rape Is Acceptable Means Of Extracting Information

Once again, the pure evil of the Iranian regime is on display for all the world to bear witness. Iran's mad mullahs hold court and provide guidance. One such mullah, Ayatollah Mohammad Taqi Mesbah-Yazdi, has determined that rape is a perfectly acceptable means of securing confessions and is okay for interrogation. In fact, it's one of the best things that a Muslim can do - akin to going on Haj:
At the Jamkaran gathering, Mesbah-Yazdi and Ahmadinejad answered questions about the rape and torture charges. The following text is from a transcript alleged by Iranian dissidents to be a series of questions and answers exchanged between the ayatollah and some of his supporters.

Asked if a confession obtained "by applying psychological, emotional and physical pressure" was "valid and considered credible according to Islam," Mesbah-Yazdi replied: "Getting a confession from any person who is against the Velayat-e Faqih ("Guardianship of the Islamic Jurists", or the regime of Iran's mullahs) is permissible under any condition." The ayatollah gave the identical answer when asked about confessions obtained through drugging the prisoner with opiates or addictive substances.

"Can an interrogator rape the prisoner in order to obtain a confession?" was the follow-up question posed to the Islamic cleric.

Mesbah-Yazdi answered: "The necessary precaution is for the interrogator to perform a ritual washing first and say prayers while raping the prisoner. If the prisoner is female, it is permissible to rape through the vagina or anus. It is better not to have a witness present. If it is a male prisoner, then it's acceptable for someone else to watch while the rape is committed."
Ayatollah Mohammad Taqi Mesbah-Yazdi is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's spiritual guide. He's the one who's telling Ahmadinejad what's acceptable conduct. He's apparently got no trouble with raping people in its custody.

Combine that with reports that the opposition has been assaulted and violated by the regime's thugs, and you get a systemic and entrenched system of violence to maintain power.

Despite the illegitimacy of the regime and the fact that Ahmadinejad and Supreme Ali Khamenei are busy trampling on the rights of Iranians, President Obama is still trying to extend a lifejacket to the regime. He sent another letter to the regime, addressed to Khamenei, although the content of the letter is not known. This is a regime that engages in torture and rape. It's about torture - real torture, not the waterboarding and nitpicking over whether a few seconds of discomfort equals torture that the left faints over at here in the States, and yet the Administration has no problem holding its hand out to give the regime a pick-me-up when they engage in systemic and systematic rape of prisoners to fulfill political and religious goals.

And even when the Administration engages in the "unclenched" foreign policy, the regime in Tehran shows its utter disdain for the Administration.
