Iranian police beat up mourners at ceremony for Neda Soltan – Times Online


Iran’s clerical authoritarian state is acting with a vengeance against any criticism of the regime. Attacking mourners at a ceremony for Neda Soltan, murdered by Basij has to signal a new low,  one has to say the muslim community here seems deaf to appeals from the Iranian opposition. All those sick islamists here who accuse the West of killing muslims,willy, nilly as usual appear not to want to take on any regime that murders muslims.  Even the “stop the war” fools appear to be deaf to events in Iran.

THE TIMES: “Baton-wielding Iranian riot police arrested mourners and drove away opposition leaders as they tried to stage a ceremony in a Tehran cemetery to commemorate protesters killed in anti-government demonstrations last month.

Ignoring Islamic customs and traditions, the security forces beat and detained many of the 2000-odd people who came to mark the end of the 40-day mourning period at the grave of Neda Soltan, the young student who has become an icon of the opposition movement…”
