The Face of the Iranian Protest … Neda the Martyr Shot and Killed for Merely Voicing her Protest in an Election


Neda … the face of the Iranian protest … There has been many videos, tweets and blog posts covering the Iranian protests over the weekend. However, there is none more dramatic and graphic that best describe the Iranian people’s march for justice for an election and the brutality of the regime they are up against than the murder of Neda. She has become the face of the Iranian protest.


Neda the Martyr

From Hot Air comes the following two video clips.

the first is a new one circulating today, shot sometime before the moment of truth. The blue shirt on the gray-haired man in the foreground should look familiar. That’s almost certainly her standing to his left, watching the protest, bothering no one.

 Warning, if you have yet to see this video, it is very graphic and not work or child appropriate.



UPDATE I: Get all day updates from Atlas Shrugs of the Islamic protests.

      Blood of martyrs on the streets of Iran. No holly man puts death on their people because they have a none violent protest about a crooked election.

      Ali Khamenei is a false holly man. Ali Khamenei is the evil, murdering dictator of Iran.
      His days are numbered. He has made martyrs out of the dead protesters. Ali Khamenei has violated the Koran. He had “No just cause!” to order death.

      Iranians will expect justice. The Supreme evil leader will be sent to hell. The whole world is watching.

      The complete verse is “and that you shall not kill – for that is forbidden by Allah – except for a just cause.” This basic verse is found three times in the Koran.

      Her and her father were being video taped because the girl got shot. I find it to be human nature.

      Dill you are not getting the jest of what I am implying. I am implying that She was a possible target a message to the protestors. She was being taped BEFORE the shooting.

      Nice Job Mr. President. Condoning the murder of innocent people who just want their freedom from tyranny.

      Well, there are questions coming and some the same as I mentioned here. This was a planned murder. If you look at the video, BEFORE the murder. Neda and her father were being taped the majority of the time and the video was following them more than any other person there. . It drew immediate suspicions to me. Now there are statements being made that this was a planned murder. By who??

    14. Dolf on June 24th, 2009 1:36 am

      news here says that she was driving home from her musiclesson and was trapped in the protest and shot.

      Miss-U, doubt it was a “planned” murder at her, but if she wasn’t killed somebody else would have
