Under the rule of the Ayatollahs, Iran has seen one of the darkest periods of its history. But thanks to people like Saba Haftbaradaran, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
The Daily Telegraph story of life and death of Saba Haftbaradaran, a resident of Camp Ashraf in Iraq who died during the April 8 massacre, was both tragic and shocking. Shooting at unarmed civilians is pure savagery. There is no justification for that no matter what the Iraqi government and military says or what the Iranian regime alleges the residents of the camp to be. Nouri al-Maliki will have to answer for committing crimes against humanity. He must be brought to justice in an international court.
