I Wish The Obama Admin Were as Concerned With Death Sentences Against Iranian Bloggers As They Are With Ex-Egyptian Presidents
by

The State Department has expressed deep concern with the death sentence handed out against former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi for his role in the 2011 Muslim Brotherhood prison break.

Of course, an argument can be made that a death sentence against Morsi would turn him into a martyr not only for the Muslim Brotherhood, but for human rights activists. Not that Morsi was overly concerned with human rights when he was in power, but Morsi was democratically elected and disposed of in a coup and that will be enough for some people.

That all being said, I wish the Obama Administration would express the same deep concern when Iran sentenced blogger Soheil Arabi to death last December for “insulting the prophet of Islam” on a Facebook post

The Obama Administration, however, has other priorities where it concerns Iran namely negotiating a nuclear deal. Needless to say, calling out Iran for its behavior against bloggers would not be conducive to fulfilling their top foreign policy objective. 

The Obama Administration’s displeasure with the imposition of the death penalty depends on how much business it has to conduct with the regime imposing it.
