Summary: I’ll let Al Jazeera’s Nazanin Sadri do it:

My Two Cents: Well, I guess Iran never purported to be a democracy, and this kinda seals the deal. Blogging in Iran has really grown over the years, and is seen as the only way sometimes to spread unfiltered news. How sad is that when you’re faced with death for trying to educate? Yes, I’m imposing my Western liberal ideals on Iran, but it just seems like you can’t defend this practice on any rational level.
