Remember them:

Iran's players refused to sing their national anthem as boos rung out from fans in the stands ahead of their first game of the Qatar World Cup against England today.

The Iranian national squad stood stony-faced as the anthem played at the Khalifa International Stadium on Monday, in an apparent sign of solidarity with protests currently engulfing the country back home.

Meanwhile audible jeers and boos were heard by supporters in the crowd, who were also seen waving banners supporting the demonstrators.

'The refusal by Iran’s football team not to sing the Islamic Republic’s national anthem will be a decision the players will pay for dearly.

'Similarly, any Iranian fan identified by the regime for booing the anthem will also face being severely punished. This is the brutal reality of modern-day Iran.

'Iran’s players may have forfeited more than just their freedom today; and their lives may not be the only ones on the line.

'Indeed, the regime has demonstrated a particular propensity to target dissidents’ family members and in doing so deter others from voicing their opinions.

'Given Iran’s horrendous track record, it stands to note that the players and fans who today shunned the regime, knew full well about risks they faced.

'Such courage and dignity in the face of absolutism most certainly deserves our full recognition.'

I have nothing to add, I just feel that this should stay near the top of page.

I would hope so, courage like that these days is rare and should be acknowledged.
And the danger is very, very real:

For months, Iranians have taken to the streets in demonstrations sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old woman who died in the custody of the country's morality police. She had been detained for wearing her hijab improperly.

Iran's regime has attempted to crack down on the protests with violent police intervention. Human rights groups allege that over 1000 people have been arrested and hundreds killed.

Now, authorities are putting demonstrators on trial; Iranian courts have already sentenced six to death.

Welp…no pallets of cash for the players. They are cut off. The Mullahs, however, will continue to be rewarded for their…uhhh…standing on the world stage.

They probably will be beheaded
Methods of execution

The Iranian Penal Code prescribes several execution methods, including hanging, firing squads, crucifixion, and stoning. Hanging has been the main method of execution and the only method used between 2008 and 2020. In 2020, Hedayat Abdullahpour, a Kurdish political prisoner, was executed by firing squad.[2] Moreover, the recent directive issued by the Head of Judiciary in June 2019 gives a detailed description of how death sentences by hanging, stoning and crucifixion should be implemented.

Actually you should be explaining why you thought it was such a good idea to give more power to the Gov't of Iran (Money and Resources) through the Iran Nuclear deal, that allows them to suppress, torture and execute it's citizens. Not to mention develop drones that Putin (who also made money from the deal) is currently destroying the infrastructure of the Ukraine with.......

Yeah, no kidding. Iran is brutal to women and homosexuals. And all of those leftists lining up to “like” Bugsy’s pathetic little snipe will have NOTHING to say about that.

…because women’s rights, gay rights, climate, poverty, justice of every sort, hunger, gun violence…you name it - EVERY cause that lefty pretends to support is nothing but a facade…a trojan horse for their true single cause - marxism. All that other stuff is mere casing.
 
Regime stooges just blindly beleive whatever they are told, no questions just blind loyalty.

He didn't improve their behavior anymore than that useless deal Obama signed, Trump simply made sure they had LESS MONEY TO DO IT WITH.

Meanwhile at the Halls of the Terminally Stupid, Joe Biden is trying to get another deal in place....... Lets give the Mullah's more money and nukes..... sure that will end well for everyone involved, a deal that will make the Russians (which you are all terrified of) billions more just like the last one

It’s quite amazing that you Trump cultists can’t even see after-the-fact that Trump made a massive blunder tearing up the Iran deal. You people can’t perceive reality. Your minds have been destroyed.

Lefty’s professed concern for gays is bogus, as is his concern for everything else (except marxism - lefty’s DELIGHT in that is quite genuine).
