But where would you like us to send the flowers?— Nick Paton Walsh, CNN

False equivalence from Linda Sarsour: "A woman in Iran takes the risk of not wearing a hijab based on the laws there and has to risk that--we in the US, Muslim women, risk wearing hijab." Women who choose to wear hejab in the US are not imprisoned/lashed.—Karim Sadjadpour

With many experts speculating that the unrest in Iran is far from over, the day may not be far off when the Iranian people can seek justice for the crimes committed against them.

The case of Hossein Derakhshan also shows how blanket immigration decisions about a place like Iran can be both ineffective and deeply flawed.—Roya Hakakian and Daniel Jafari
