    Regime bans funeral ceremony for slain girl

    Neda Salehi Agha Soltan

    The Iranian regime has prevented a funeral ceremony to be held for a young girl killed by its agents during the recent protests in Tehran.
    The funeral for Neda Salehi Agha Soltan, 27, was supposed to be held on Monday, June 22, at the Niloufar Mosque in Tehran’s Abbas Abad district. But, the Iranian regime’s agents contacted the mosque on Monday morning at 9:00 local time and ordered the mosque’s officials to cancel the service. Other mosques have also been issued directives warning them not to hold a funeral ceremony for Neda.
    The young girl was killed on Saturday by the regime’s suppressive forces amid protests in Tehran against the clerical regime. The gruesome video of her painful death with her father watching over her, which was distributed on the internet and showed her father desperately asking her not to be afraid, has stunned Iranians around the world.

    I wonder if the Ayatollah realizes that his actions as the Supreme Leader of Islam in Iran has made him the face and VOICE of Islam all over the world. The bottom line is that he is a self indulgent despot. That is all he will ever be seen as again. An old man, who doesn't value anyone's life but his own. His vitriol, along with Mahmoud's, have made it nearly impossible for the West to intervene without putting OURSELVES in more peril from radical Muslims all over the world. This is it. If the people don't go for broke to depose both Khameni the imposter, and his little puppet, there is nothing but suffering ahead for Iran for the rest of Khameni's life to make the people pay for making him look bad. I wish the protesters God's speed in their quest for basic freedoms that no human being should be denied, especially by one self proclaimed man of God. If that is how he sees himself, then his god is NOT the God of Islam or any other faith.
