Comment: Parenthetical remarks by the Sun editor, headline by hawk


IS THE Canadian government actually going to send a man to his death for
being a heroin addict? If Morteza Borhania is deported to Iran, there is
not a shadow of a doubt that the religious fanatics running Iran will
murder him for being a Christian and use drugs as their excuse. The regime
in Tehran has been using drug executions to cover up their persecution of
minority and opposing groups for years! Iranian fanatics are using the
"drug war" as an excuse to eliminate and subdue their opposition. Will
Canada be a partner in entrenching a corrupt murderous cabal?
