Ahmadinejad: Ms Ashtiani “was never sentenced to stoning” (video/text)

Sept 19, 2010

Ashtiani/stoning posts

Mahmo Ahmadinejad is on US soil. That thought is disgusting in itself but his words are even more disgusting.

ABC’s “This Week”

Ms Amanpour, who is Iranian-British, runs circles around him. At one point she laughs at him – similar to Stephanopoulos when Mahmo said OBL was in Washington.

Who believes this little man’s lies? It is impossible to listen to his words and not laugh.

Today’s interview:

AMANPOUR: What did you think when Fidel Castro said Mr. President, stop attacking the Jews. Stop denying the Holocaust. Stop being anti-Semitic. Fidel Castro, Cuba, is a friend of Iran?

MAHMO: Well, shouldn’t he be free to say what he wants? He’s free to say what he wants. We’ve never been anti semitic, when was I anti semitic– the Jews live in Iran, like every other person who lives in Iran freely….

Mahmo in 2005:

However, if someone were to deny the myth of the Jews’ massacre, all the Zionist mouthpieces and the governments subservient to the Zionists tear their larynxes and scream against the person as much as they can.


We do not accept or officially recognize Israel.


The world powers established this filthy bacteria, the Zionist regime [Israel], which is lashing out at the nations in the region like a wild beast.

The video below contains the full interview: Sarah Shourd (“Iran was the country that released Sarah. We haven’t even received a note from the United States on that.”), family members ask for hikers release, Iranian prisoners in US, nuclear sanctions, human rights (“In Iran, people are free to make statements, to say what they think. There are no restrictions on what people say.”), the opposition party trials, Fidel Castro, Secy Clinton, POTUS reaching out to Iran.

Mahmo re nuclear issue Sept 2005:

Iran is ready to transfer nuclear know-how to the Islamic countries due to their need.

Ms Amanpour asks him about Ms Ashtiani and stoning. He states Ms Ashtiani was not sentenced to stoning, which of course is a lie.

Imagine how much he must have hated a free Iranian woman with her hair and flesh unshrouded dictating the interview. One hopes Ms Ashtiani will one day see this interview.

Relevant (6:40 – 9:40)


Relevant transcript (and proof of his lies) follow.


AMANPOUR: I want to ask you about human rights. You know the lady Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani who was sentenced to stoning. Her sentence was lifted. What do you personally think of stoning? Do you think that’s an appropriate sentence for anybody in today’s modern Iran?

AHMADINEJAD: Why do you think that the issue of one lady in a village in Iran called Miss Mohammadi should suddenly become such a big issue for American officials?

AMANPOUR: I’m surprised that you don’t think that its likely to be a big issue and it’s not just American officials it’s all over the world it was international.

AHMADINEJAD: Allow me! Allow me!

AMANPOUR: I want to know what your view is on stoning. Do you think its appropriate and fitting for a modern country and a nuclear, want to be nuclear power.

Tries to intimidate Ms Amanpour – she laughs (pix above)

AHMADINEJAD: Why don’t you finish your statement and then allow me to speak?

AMANPOUR: I’m asking your opinion.

AHMADINEJAD: Well, if you want me to speak, if you want to lecture me, you can, but that’s fine…

AHMADINEJAD: I wouldn’t be offended, I have a lot of patience.

AMANPOUR: OK. I’d like your opinion on stoning.

AHMADINEJAD: first, what I want to say is that Miss Mohammadi was never sentenced to stoning. This was news that was produced and incorrect, and regrettably, U.S. media affected — was infected by U.S. politicians to make a piece of news out of it.

AMANPOUR: But the Iranian government lifted the sentence…

AHMADINEJAD: Allow me. Allow me. When I represent the Iranian government how come is it that I am unaware of what you are telling me and that you should be aware of it. This is an issue that is being considered. It is still being processed. Given that there was no sentence of stoning issued in the first place this was the news that was made up. The propaganda behind it was big and then those same murderers of people become supporters of human rights.


Now he needs to be proven a lie on the international stage while he is in NY.

TRUTH outside the small mind of Mahmo.

The Islamic Republic of Iran’s own foreign minister Ramin Mehmanparast told state-run Press TV on Sept 8, 2010:

The sentencing of Ms. Ashtiani for adultery has been stopped and (her case) is being reviewed again, and her sentencing for complicity in murder is in process.

He cannot be talking about her first sentence of 99 lashes for stoning because she received the lashes over 4 years ago. It is the second charge of adultery that resulted in the sentence of death by stoning. And she has already cleared of any complicity in her husband’s murder.

International Campaign Against Stoning has proof of her sentence:

ICAS has court documents that show that it was the prosecution in Tabriz that brought the charge of adultery against Ms Ashtiani and that she was convicted through the ‘knowledge’ of three of the five judges.


On Friday afternoon Iranian state TV broadcast another programme about Ms Ashtiani in which they stated that she will not be executed during the month of Ramadan.

No need to mention an execution if a sentence of execution was not already pronounced.

From Ms Ashtiani’s court-appointed lawyer Houton Kian’s letter to Iran’s Supreme Court:

In the final judgment letter, where it says Sakineh Ashtiani has been sentenced to stoning


AHMADINEJAD: Now this is ancient method, an ancient method that needs to change. Its natural, anybody can have an opportunity over an issue and propagate about it. But we are opposed to the way United States manages the world, manages Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Non answer. What does stoning someone to death have to do with the US?

AMANPOUR: Since we’re talking about this, since you’ve been the President executions in Iran have increased by four times. Did you know that?

AHMADINEJAD: That is not true at all. Not at all. Not at all.

AMANPOUR: So you deny that? Independent- human rights groups say that….

AHMADINEJAD: How do they know? They haven’t come to Iran.

Because they’re not let in. How is Iran on any UN Commission – let alone one on the Status of Women – when they do not allow the red crescent, Amnesty International or other humanitarian aid groups into their country?
