Crime by government in Iran (i beg you to help me to show this Video to more people )

Please help me to these videos to be watched by more people
this was happened today in tehran:

a man who was there : "shots to death a young woman in Tehran's Saturday June 20th protests At 19:05 June 20th Place: Karekar Ave., at the corner crossing Khosravi St. and Salehi st. A young woman who was standing aside with her father watching the protests was shot by a basij member hiding on the rooftop of a civilian house. He had clear shot at the girl and could not miss her. However, he aimed straight her heart. I am a doctor, so I rushed to try to save her. But the impact of the gunshot was so fierce that the bullet had blasted inside the victim's chest, and she died in less than 2 minutes. The protests were going on about 1 kilometers away in the main street and some of the protesting crowd were running from tear gass used among them, towards Salehi St. The film is shot by my friend who was standing beside me. Please let the world know."

Incidentally OA I already had a link to the video and have posted it on all the social networking sites I use. If there's anything I can do via passing information on, please don not hesitate to ask. Stay safe.

I'm a bit puzzled about how this blog became (apparently) so controversial. The image of Neda, whilst distressing is nevertheless a fundamental tool in our fight against all theism. Her individual beliefs are secondary to her fight for freedom in this instance. The protests in Iran may be amongst theists on the whole, but the catalyst for them is borne of oppression inflicted by tyrannical fundamentalists. To paraphrase the xians 'there but for the grace of god go I'. If we cannot empathise with the Iranian protesters, why are we even attempting to be activists against theism?

@ Dough Harrington : however this new movement has some religious color for some people but its religious aspect has been reduced a lot and now even many real religious people don't want a religious or fundamentalist government. now many of these religious people don't trust their mullahs anymore . their main quest is quest of individual freedom and some political freedom and fortunately to gain this freedom they must fight against some mullah and a fundamentalist government.

Being an Active Atheist, and having spent 36 months in and amoungst the Iranian People I found good and bad as everywhere else in the world.
I departed Iran 8 months before the Revoluition.
The demonstrations that we are seeing today, is 30 years of pent up anger at bgeing dispelled from the Western World.
As we can now deteect, everyone is not following the Islamic Faith!
This will be another Bloody conflice in the name of Aullah, and God, Jesus, Buddah and what ever.
The Iranian Clerics as well as his majesty "Momoodah minioyat," are self serving individuals who rape the poor to gain their riches!

I posted a comment earlier on this blog to learn it also deleted somehow and so I'll repost. This has happened more than once since I've joined but a re-post takes care of the problem. What I was wondering was what this girl stood for if anyone knew. I thought she was maybe protesting her religion earlier that day since the unfortunate incident was placed here on a nontheist site. Doing so made it appear this was maybe nontheist related and that's what I was wondering about.

Maybe Cliff did remove his first comment. Everyone has the option of removing their comment(s), as there's a wee "x" at the end of each that is only visible to the person who posted it. I only see two comments by you with this post, ObscureAtheist. My WWW connection is not reliable, and my computer is old, so there have been times when I have tried to post comments, only to have them disappear because my WWW connection timed-out.

I don't remember any rules as to what can and can't be posted in journals. I skip the posts that are links leading back to someone's journal elsewhere (I didn't come here to pump up anyone's ego), just links with no descriptive text, broken links, or copy-and-pasted text with no attribution (plagiarisim, anyone?). Other than the issue of possible plagiarism, the rest seem issues of style rather than content. I reckon if someone doesn't like or is not interested in the content of a post, they can just skip it. I do that much of the time.

Cliff wrote: my first response stemmed from anger at what ObscureAtheist was trying to do to us psychologically.

Do you have some sort of ability to mind read? How can you know what his motivations are? All I got out of it is that he lives in Iran, is horrified with what is going on all around him, and wants to get the information out to the rest of the world because "official" news of any sort covering protests, beatings, and murders by the Basij has been banned by the Iranian government.

I have also been contacted on F.B. in the past regarding all these horrific scenes and I ignore it all there as well.

You didn't ignore it here, because you commented on it.

So I certainly did not mean to sound entirely uncaring toward fellow Members because if I were, I would not have responded here today in clearing up what I meant.

What, you only meant to sound a wee bit uncaring? Unfortunately, the deletion of the original comment throws this conversation out of context.

If you're relying on CNN for your news of what's going on in Iran, or anywhere in the Middle-East, you're often wasting your time. There are much better sources of information... such as people who actually live in Iran like Obscure Atheist.

Living where I live in the US, I have the luxury of not having to see too many disturbing visuals. I can turn off my TV, walk away from my computer, and confine myself to my generally peaceful, relatively comfortable local area. As painful as these videos are, I welcome the opportunity to understand what the reality is for ObscureAtheist, a fellow Atheist Nexus member, and other people in Iran.

I don't care what her religious or non-religious beliefs are. If the 400+ groups on the site are any indication, it seems that we are "allowed" to discuss whatever we feel like discussing on the site.

who controls the comments here?!!! i haven't seen cliff's first comment here . i though maybe he himself had removed it . but when i sent another comment and back here i see that my own comment has been removed too!!
K.Walker : 1 do you just care about atheists' life and the other people life is not important for you?!!!
2 i posted it as a blog post not a public discussion or ... and i think i am free to write whatever i want in my blog as any body can do here or outside here in his/her blog
3 she (i don't know at all about her beliefs(maybe she was another atheist in ran maybe not who knows)) has been killed by a fundamentalist religious government if it can't be a subject for us what can be ? (just arguing that god doesn't exist )!!!
4 yes here is a social network for some people with some similarities to communicate with each other but there is no law about you can't talk about these kind of subjects or ...

Morning all. So this is about a woman being killed on film, that much I got but is she an admitted nontheist, agnostic, free-thinker or atheist? I will agree with one thing I have read here this a.m., that we already know about this stuff taking place. I am trying to understand the need to have posted this video on the A/N site at all.

"but the U.S. comes first"

How do you figure?

Like it or not, we're all connected.
Comment by Anne Halligan on June 20, 2009 at 6:28pm
Cliff this is an issue that affects us all. If you are concerned with how religion adversely affects people when it is governmentally controlled, then this video is clearly demonstrating that. Whatever your views on the politics of Iran, this woman died because some religious zealots don't like their authority being questioned.
