Iran Police: Neda’s Death Was Staged

From Iran’s Press TV:

Neda has become the symbol of post-election street rallies in Iran.

Iran police: Neda’s death ‘prearranged scenario’

Wed, 01 Jul 2009

Iran’s Police Chief says the mysterious death of Neda Aqa-Soltan, who became a symbol of post-election street rallies in Iran, was a ‘prearranged scenario’.

Neda, 26, was shot dead on June 20 in an alley away from the scene of clashes between security forces and demonstrators in Tehran.

She immediately became an international icon after graphic videos of her death grabbed the attention of world media outlets.

Esmaeil Ahmadi-Moqadam, commander of the Iranian Police, said Wednesday that the unfortunate incident –which has been hyped and dramatized by Western media outlets–, was in fact a ‘premeditated act of murder’.

The Iranian police chief said Arash Hejazi, a doctor who claims he tried to save Neda’s life in her final moments, has fanned the flames of the western media hype.

Ahmadi-Moqadam said the Iranian Intelligence Ministry is making every effort to discover the whereabouts of Hejazi. "He has fled the country and is working against the Iranian government abroad."

Media outlets in the West have blamed Neda’s death on Iranian security forces, but new revelations have found that she was murdered by a small caliber pistol–a weapon that is not used by Iranian security forces.

The man who drove Neda to hospital said in an interview that her death looked ‘highly suspicious’, as there were no security forces or Basij members nearby.

The Iranian government is making every effort to identify the culprit behind Neda’s death with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad demanding a through investigation into the incident.

"Amid vast propaganda by foreign media and many other evidence about the heartfelt event, it seems definite that opponents of the Iranian nation interfere (in Iran’s internal affairs) for their political misuse," said Ahmadinejad in a letter to Iran’s Judiciary chief Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi-Shahroudi

Really, more and more it seems that the Iranian rulers think they can say and do whatever they want – no matter how preposterous – and get away with it.

After all, they have the media on their side. So who is going to question them?

Thank goodness that could never happen here.

    Kiss concerts are staged with Gene Simmons spitting fake blood everywhere.
    Alice Cooper concerts are staged with the use of fake blood.
    Neda’s death was not staged and the blood was her own. If that was the case that Neda’s death was staged ….. why the need to “investigate” a staged death?
    I smell bed sheet wearing, furry faced rats kicking feces in the air and saying its not feces!

    • qbit says:

      unless Im missing somthing, the article dident say “the death was staged”
      the article is saying “the premeditated spectacle to incite public outrage” was staged
      your argument is moot and baseless.

    SG…”Really, more and more it seems that the Iranian rulers think they can say and do whatever they want – no matter how preposterous – and get away with it.

    I’m not sure who took a page out of who’s book here.

    “Thank goodness that could never happen here.”

    Can you imagine what would happen if it did happen here?…Outrageous debt, micro managing our lives. Crippling our freedoms…Destroying our economy. Loss of jobs. Unstable deflation, then massive inflation….

    Oh…wait….Yep…It did happen here,didn’t it? D**n!!! I KNEW something was wrong!

    Only “feigned” deaths are missing. Ummm…not a good future to look forward to.

  3. This is right up there with Ahmadinejad’s assertion that there are no homosexuals in Iran. Of course they’re aren’t when you KILL THEM.

    But nothing will stand in the way.

    Thank goodness our government isn’t prone to ludicrous lying to get it’s way.

    Oh wait…..

    Speaking of not happening in this country it sure is a relief that these kinds of things could never happen here just like a president owning a car company, banks and anything else they can get their hands on. How about the czars that have been appointed without any authority and only answer to the president didn’t think that could happen here either. How about banks that were forced to take money whether they wanted it or not, oh that couldn’t happen here it’s not constitutional.

      If we had a free press instead of a state run press, the 50 outrageous anti-freedom, anti-American, anti-common-sense things that this communist-dictator-wannabe has done in 6 months would be stated in plain language and the impreachment proceedings would be nearly complete.

      And I say that fully realizing that over 50% of the country is convinced they can rob what you and I have created in our lives.

      Because, even for the idiots who voted for the charlatan, if the situation is properly explained, and they are informed that he is implementing a system designed to enrich his cronies and create a permanent class of serfs, even the idiots would understand.

    • qbit says:

      How about the Zeal of opinion to find anything wrong with the nature of one government to the extent of ignoring the Zeal of another camp to destroy it.
      Iran must go! why. why because it threatens Israel, of course.
      Who cares to what length Israel goes to eliminate its enemies.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      You got a thorn stuck in your saddle qbit?
      Israel has a perfect right to defend it self from outsiders hell bent in its destruction!
      YOU SIR……..Have a MOOT point!

    • qbit says:

      Yea, ‘a perfect right to defend itself’ …. really I used to believe like you too… seriously
      But 10% unemployment has given me ample time to investigate the many ways OUR government is participating in a dichotomous relationship to provide us with everything we need, not just the democrats uncontrollable spending habits, but the republicans need to wage war everywhere too. And America’s undying support for Israel is tantamount for question, considering it’s many questionable acts, including having Key companies at strategic (conspicuous) locations during 7/7 and 9/11.

      I’m not religious “anymore”, I used to be christian, but education has taught me to think for myself, Religion is a man made affair with his conscious and fear of the unknown, my own words. That said, I have nothing but respect for all religions, but look at the Bible as Nothing but a historical book of fact and fiction. Furthermore, I have nothing against the Israelis, Russia, China, or the British. But perhaps Its time that people like you wake the hell up.. and stop believing in everything Fox news tells you, mind you Fox is the only news I will watch too, but even they play their part, I, like you am a conservative, but I no longer buy into that Hegelian dialectic. And am very dissappointed when I heard my one time hero Mr. Beck trash the 911 truth movement, because, unlike you I can tell truth from whitewash. Good luck.
      If your interested…

      “Truth from whitewash”

      Spoken like a true believer. Nothing will sway a hardcore conspiracy theorist short of an aneurysm; no amount of data will sully a false belief held with conviction. But I’ll tell you what I think all the same.

      I think that denying what happened on 9/11 is disgraceful. Back in the day, it took decades for conspiracy theories to emerge about Pearl Harbor yet it took liberal kooks less than six months to deny the historical circumstances (and perpetrators) of our Sept.11 national tragedy. Sorry but it’s neither rational nor open-minded to buy into propaganda claiming Jewish people had something to do with 9/11. Such beliefs are rooted in disdain for Jews, Israel, and among Islamic peoples who wish to downplay the role of fellow believers in violence committed against Western civilians. You can easily debunk every fake 9/11 claim and chain e-mail with a simple search on Google.

      Skeptic magazine devoted a whole issue to debunking the 9/11 conspiracy theories. Even the libertarians Penn & Teller did an episode debunking this trash, if you’d like some philosophical counterpoints that have nothing to do with Fox News…Can’t blame Bush for everything…

      Will the “truthers” moan about Obama and secret societies if there’s another attack on our soil? Somehow I doubt it.

    Iran police: Neda’s death ‘prearranged scenario’

    The burning question is, Who prearranged it? Just wait until Barry’s Greenshirts get into action if you think it can’t happen here. Prior to it happening, I never thought that Franken would be allowed to blatantly steal the election in Minn. but there it is.

    We need to do something before this goes past a point of no return. I DON’T WANT to move to Canada but I will to get away from this &^$^#&^%ing president and his corrupt posse.

    TAKE IT BACK!

    • jobeth says:

      This is the first time I’ve ever considered leaving the country too…At least it would be a tad more tolerable to watch my husbands homeland of Britain go to pot than to watch my own country fall apart.

      Reminds me of when the hurricanes came through Florida. My husband watched our back yard go to pot but I couldn’t watch it. I sat at the front of the house and watched the property across the street. Easier to take.

      But honestly I couldn’t leave unless I thought I was in physical danger. I will work as long as I can to get our country back.

      If you want to destroy America, best to do it quietly and piecemeal. Slowly take over education and dumb it down. Take over the role of provider for low-income families. Lower people’s expectations of themselves, what they are capable of doing for themselves. Take over the most large and powerful segments of the private sector–banking, autos, then destroy the insurance business. Big government is the opiate of the masses.

      Sorry, but America’s still the world’s last, best hope, as bad as it is, I wouldn’t want to live in Europe or the U.K. (“Eurabia” as Mark Steyn calls it.) Australia? Maybe, but not with Rudd in charge.

    And O.J. is still diligently looking for the real killer…
