Good news in Iran

According to the Dhimmi Watch story here, an Iranian man was just acquitted of the capital crime of apostasy (In Islam, abandonment of the faith). The judge's statement seems to indicate that his ruling was directed by someone above him in the mullah-ocracy.

This is probably the Iranian way of saying: "See, we really are reasonable and nobody needs to bomb us because of our nukes."

Whether an empty gesture or a sign that reason has arrived in that land, it does indicate something other than utter fanaticism at the top.

P.S.: Sorry for this weekend's unannounced absence. I've been celebrating Memorial Day with family in Mississippi.
