there are people who genuinely believe the election was rigged, but are also strong followers of the revolution. their "connection to CIA and israel" is all khamenei talking...
Lets not forget, peaceful protests were allowed at first. Ayatollah Khamenei (HA) also asked the Guardians Council to investigate all of the claims made by Mousavi. The Guardians Council moreover invited Mousavi and Karroubi to attend a meeting, where the issues would be discussed, but they didnt attend; they probably knew how pathetic the claims of fraud were, so I assume they decided to stay at home instead of making fools of themselves.
Most of the people accepted the reality, but there were a minority who refused to do so, and got violent on streets. Buildings, busses, cars and homes were put on fire by these protestors, and civilians were killed. Thereafter, Imam Khamenei (HA) ruled the protests to be illegal, and the security forces than started to clamp down on them.
Here is the ''Neda story''.
Extracts from several articles I came across... I had posted this earlier...
To start off, there is what appears to be two different Nedas (photos of two different women supposedly her), and (currently) a question of any independent source identifying Neda as a real person.
Then, Neda was said to have been shot by a member of the Basij, an officially sanctioned vigilante organization.
And yet, as they are not police or military, most Basiji are not permitted to carry firearms except for special requirements and when not in actual combat?
And then, why would they pick out a non-protesting woman, 1km from where the protests were occuring, just stepping out of a car for a few minutes. And, how did anyone even know it was a Basiji, since it was claimed to be from a unseen sniper on an adjacent building. (AND IF IT WAS A BASIJI THAT GOT CAUGHT, AS CLAIMED, THAN QUITE SURPRISING NOBODY RECORDED THAT, WHILST THERE WERE SEVERAL DIFFERENT VIDEOS OF NEDA)
Moving now to the video . . .
For the massive injury she supposedly sustained, a direct bullet shot to the center of her chest, I have to wonder, where is all the blood that would be coming from her torso or her back onto the ground, it should have been everywhere, including the spot where they are trying to give her CPR, all over their hands and her clothing, and a huge pool on the ground. Yet the only pool of blood appears to be at her feet before she falls down.
Then, most curious . . .
Shortly into the video, we see blood coming from her mouth. She is not sputtering it out, or coughing it up, as in an inability to breathe. Rather it appears rapidly and self flowing, and runs down both sides of her mouth, almost exclusively. Her center teeth aren’t even stained.
Shortly thereafter blood appears to pour out her right nostril . . . Looking carefully in the video, it appears that both the mouth and nostril bleed occurs right after a hand is seen pushing up onto or into them.
These flow patterns appear more to be from a blood bladder timed for rupture when the camera was in the correct position. And the nose bleed appears only after what appears to be a rapid slight-of-hand insertion of blood into her nose.
Conveniently, an anonymous doctor was on hand to provide the CPR, and to try to save her life, provide credible medical testimony, then disappear from the scene.
Now I am nitpicking, but this video was supposedly shot with a cellphone videocam. It really seems a bit too high quality for that, more like a DV camcorder.
And then, there is the almost too perfect backstory of Neda, preceding the shooting and in preparation to go to the protests - her supposed repeated prescient commentary about any danger there, was a flippant “Don’t worry. It’s just one bullet and it’s over”, and that “Neda had said that even if she lost her life and got a bullet in her heart, she would carry on”.
Of course, we find out that she was not really political and had no intention of active protesting, only that she was passionate about the honesty of the election process, and wanted to be there to see. Her fiancee said she “studied philosophy, music and tourism, was not political”, i.e. principled, but thoroughly inoffensive.
Then on followup, there is the extreme rapid nature of her burial; no wake, or prefuneral proceedings, no Imam attending, or even pictures/video of that proceeding?
We now hear unsubstantiated reports that the Iranian government has banned any memorials or gatherings in her name, which conveniently explains why there is a dearth of public involvement in her very public death.
I don’t want to bust anyone’s bubble, but there seems to be too many “just right” elements to this story.
Dr Arash Hejazi, a publishing student and medical doctor at Oxford Brookes university, had arrived only two days prior to Neda’s death and left the day after anxious to tell the story to the British media of an innocent woman being shot by a Baseej militiaman – this despite the fact that the Baseej never ever carry firearms outside of military compounds (they use sticks, chains and other household items).
The media has since accepted his testimony uncritically, in particular Times of London correspondent Martin Fletcher, who has been nothing short of an obsessed anti-regime propagandist in the wake of the June election. Indeed, Dr Hejazi changed his story early on – he had initially claimed that the assailant was a rooftop sharpshooter , but later said that Neda was shot by a man on a motorcycle .
Anyone with even a measure of circumspection would be suspicious of Dr Hejazi’s actions and motives as well as his possible involvement with British intelligence which regularly approaches Iranian students and residents in the UK to serve as informers in Iran. Yet, he is hailed as the “man who heroically tried to save” a bleeding Neda (although there is very little to show for it).
May Allah (swt) forgive you.
why do you think the islamic revolution is under threat now?
So the Zionist have made you believe. Talk about a so called collapse of the reigime has been there for the past 30 years. I wouldnt get my expectations high if I was you.
they always want people to question them???? LOOOOOOOOOL! when was the last time you read the news on iran? do you know Ahmad Zeiadabadi is in prison for saying "magham e rahbari" instead of "magham e moazzam e rahbari"?
Thanks for making a fool of yourself here...
