So much for moral equivalency

For those wanting to "dialogue" with Iran - here's what we have to work with:
Mohsen Yahyavi is the highest-ranked politician to admit that Iran believes in the death penalty for homosexuality after a spate of reports that gay youths were being hanged...
And another:
The latest row [between Iran and Britain] involves a woman hanged this June in the town of Gorgan after becoming pregnant by her brother. [for the record: gross, but I doubt it was consensual...] He was absolved after expressing his remorse.
Still think the "religious right" in this country is as much or more a threat than the Islamofascists fueled and financed by Iran, Rosie?
