Not giving up

I found this video on Twitter. Its a protest that took place in Tehran yesterday.

This morning, CNN removed its special “Iran coverage” section of its website. The global community seems more fascinated with Bernie Madoff and the rash of celebrity deaths. Ahmadinejad, who makes Madoff seem like decent person, continues to make a mockery out of the people of his country. Today he suggested that Neda’s death should be “investigated”.

Here’s the story from AP/Fox:

 President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad asked Iran’s cleric-controlled judiciary on Monday to investigate the killing of Neda Agha Soltan, who became an icon of Iran’s ragtag opposition after gruesome video of her bleeding to death on a Tehran street was circulated worldwide.
 
Ahmadinejad’s Web site said Soltan was slain by “unknown agents and in a suspicious” way, convincing him that “enemies of the nation” were responsible.
 
The regime has implicated protesters and even foreign intelligence agents in Soltan’s death. But an Iranian doctor who said he tried to save her told the BBC last week she apparently was shot by a member of the volunteer Basij militia. Protesters spotted an armed member of the militia on a motorcycle, and stopped and disarmed him, Dr. Arash Hejazi said.

 

 An investigation seems legitimate if it meant that the Iranian government would summon and punish the Basiji and the other thugs roaming the streets–the thugs who, according to an Iranian doctor and many eyewitnesses, murdered Neda in cold blood–but instead it meas that the investiagtion will focus on whether or not “foreign agents” were involved in the killing. In other words, Ahmadinejad is harping on the same card being used by his puppet master, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, blaming the United States, Israel, and the UK for the hatred his countrymen feel for him. Well Mr. Ahmadinejad, I have news for you: when you steal an election and begin a campagin of killing when the people speak out, those people are going to hate you. It doesn’t take an international conspiracy involving MI5, the CIA, and the Mossad to make that happen. And I have more news: its going to take more than a few “Marg bar Amrika! Marg bar Israel!” chants from your dwindling crowd of supporters to help you maintain your grip of power. You can only keep the blood of the innocent hidden under your perverted interpretation of Islam and the false pretense of democracy for so long.

How many more people are going to have the die in vain while the world shrugs its shoulders and lets out a cold sigh of indifference?
