Ebadi Sweetened the Palate of the Zionists

Fars News Agency: Shirin Ebadi is trying to create a space for one of the detainees in the street riots.

In an open letter to Nasrin Sotoudeh, her lawyer in court, Shirin Ebadi wrote to the Kayhan Newspaper that she is a soldier known to all Iranian women....

Ebadi’s remarks came as some news sources reported her extensive ties to a Baha’i centre in occupied Palestine.

Some news has also been published about her daughter’s conversion to the perverse Baha’i sect, which, of course, Ebadi herself [denied].

 

Shirin Ebadi’s Office, the Paradise for the Baha’is

Recently, the Islamic Revolutionary Court of Justice sentenced the Baha’i secretary of the Defenders of Human Rights Centre to two years in prison.

Jinous S., after the sedition of thugs and groups on Ashura Husseini, was arrested along with a number of other Baha’i elements active in the Ashura sedition on 13 Dey 1388 [3 January 2010]. She was arrested together with Artin Gh (her husband) and several other members of the Baha’i sect’s colonial group.

Seven Baha’i leaders were arrested two years ago on charges of spying for the Zionist regime and sentenced to 10 years in prison....

The arrest of the secretary—jack-of-all-trades—of the Office of the Defenders of Human Rights Centre, in the midst of sedition and turmoil on the Day of Ashura, is another scandal for Ebadi and her comrades, while the fugitive monarchist has already defended some Baha’i elements, claiming that she was only representing them. But now it seems that in addition to [her] being next to the [main] Baha’i members, the slander about this old monarchist woman’s being a Baha’i herself has become more serious.
