Seriously, I never knew George met her. Thanks for the info. Is that why she went away?

I’m genuinely curious as to why you would think this Iranian girl’s death has been faked, if I interpret your opinion correctly. I’ve missed that evidence somewhere.

Watch carefully. Some guy squirts her with a liquid.

"Blood" miraculously appears on her forehead only after some guy's ass occludes the camera.

I'm saying I remain unconvinced.

“It's too bad the Zoroastrians don't accept converts”

Zoroastrianism originated in Iran. It was the official religion there in some form or other until the Muslim invasion.

The Zoroastrians in India are called Parsees. The Parsees were refugees from the Islamic conquest. The Indian rulers there allowed them to remain in India under the precondition that they agree not to proselytize. This became a tenet of Parsee Zoroastrianism as a consequence. The Parsees hold that to whatever religion one was born that was the relgion they were fated to serve and a person could be saved by being a good person in any religion.

I think the Zoroastrian community in Iran, the few that may still exist, do not believe in not accepting converts. I have read on the internet that some Zoroastrian communities accept them.

This issue of not accepting converts is a curious and contradictory one. Zoroaster himself started out in a world dominated by pagans and he converted a great many of them. Others people were converted along the way as time went on. The Zoroastrian Community worldwide is suffering from a diminishing population. It would seem to me that seeking out converts and accepting them is the only way for a religion, certainly a religion of so few followers, to remain and grown.

This is the theme I've been seeing on twitter, youtube, and other sites from the people in Iran since Friday. I'm sorry I missed the first few days. Many of them have muslim names, but want a secular government. This should not be difficult for anyone to understand who can understand and agree with our First Amendment.

What they have had for the past 30 years is Islamic tyranny driven by Arabs. The basiji are mostly imported Arab Hamas and Hezbollah thugs. The majority of the population in Iran are Persian, and a great percentage of them are too young to remember the Islamic Revolution of 1979 or the years prior to that.

The blatant twisting of the election results to give Achedinijad the election, when he came in third in a four-way election was just the last straw. They don't even care much about the valid winner, Masouvi; they simply have had more than enough tyranny of being ruled by an Islamic council, rather than an elected political government. As some have said, they do not want to be ruled by a "desert trash religion".

If they really want to bring down the regime what they should do is destroy the central bank.

That is an exceptionally astute recommendation.

On a related note, if you want to kill America, keep it's central bank (The Fed) operating and more powerful.

Pay attention closely around :10.

The blood first emerges from her mouth; I don’t see anything being squirted.

Perhaps you saw one edited clip on some tv station. There was more than one cell phone video of her falling and the guys rushing in to try to help her.

The shot came from a rooftop downward through the center of the chest, likely a heart-lung shot. One of the cellphones scanned the suspected rooftop, and it was lined with the black outfits of the basiji. When one of the guys put pressure on the wound, blood squirted out of her nose and mouth. I believe that is consistent with a heart-lung shot. She was not the only person shot, and certainly not the only fatality of the weekend.

There are multiple videos on youtube. Anyone can see them.

Protesters shouting "Watch out for the day that we are armed" and "Death to the basij" (Iran's thug militia). They are not even recognized as a branch in the military.

If you look at the other angles, you can clearly see she is dying, and she is laying in a pool of blood. The “squirts” you claim to see (which I don’t see anyone holding anything, except her chest) is blood, which starts coming out of her mouth, and then nose and then her eyes.

This is clearly real. And how dare you insinuate otherwise.

You will also notice in some videos that her leg is jerking with what is called the “tremor mortis.” This is not something you can fake. I can’t believe anybody is even suggesting that this was faked.

Well, anybody but a Bambi/Ahmadinejad plant.

I wish I was good at posting pictures.

I would post a picture of the smiling Iraqi women with holding up her purple ink stained finger with a caption
“This is the result of America Meddling” Thank you George W. Bush”

Then under that

I would post a picture of NEDA dying in the streets of Iran
caption
“This is the result of America being timid” Shame on you Barrak Obama.

>> Iran should become a Zoroastrian or Baha’i republic and free itself from the Arabized Wahhabi belt. <<

It is a downright shame what the mullahs have done to the Zoroastrian community in Iran. The Zoroastrians don’t convert, but how many can “re-vert” back to Zoroastrianism?

Quite a sizable population I think.

I clearly see blood emerge from her mouth then her nose. I clearly did not see anything being squirted in her face.

I believe the video to be authentic, though I truly wish it weren’t.

They do not want the Shah back. The Shah was a bad dude.

On CNN’s website, there’s a picture of some protesters showing clerics among them and a caption which said some clerics had joined the protesters. If true, my humble opinion, this is very big.
