Sakharov Prized Awarded to Sotoudeh and Panahi

The European Parliament's annual Sakharov prize has gone to two Iranian dissidents; Lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh, who represents opposition activists and is now in prison for her legal work, and banned filmmaker Jafar Panahi. The Sakharov Prize is awarded by the European Parliament for dedication to the defense of human rights and freedom of thought. Photo: Panahi (L) and Sotoudeh (AFP)

I always was on their side (Sotude & Panahi) but seeing how this Pro Israeli blog jumps on them to cash in on a cheap anti-Iranian move !!!

I stay clear on them now since foreigners are abusing it.

Anybody that mentions a comment such as yours is either a regime supporter or someone ignorant.
Since when is it that a true opposition supporter against the fascist theocracy is anti Israeli and anti Jew or come to think of it, anti foreigner?
