In New York this week, Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad faced a slew of questions about Iran's lack of cooperation with U.N. inspectors, belligerent threats to Isreal, and Iran's future as a U.N.-defying nuclear power.
Here's a new question: Does Iran really want to be a country that stones women to death for their sexual sins?
Soon I hope I'm not going to be the only one asking that question. Cyrus Nowrasteh's "The Stoning of Soraya M." debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival this month. Audience members wept at the shocking portrayal of an innocent woman's descent from a respected wife and mother into a thing to be killed slowly, painfully by every man in her village.
