Call in to speak with the host
This show is dedicated to someone I don't know. This show is dedicated to someone I don't need to care about. This show is dedicated to someone from a country which is led by our enemy. This show is dedicated to a true innocent whom I've never met, never knew, and who never knew of my existence.
This episode is dedicated to Neda.
If you're asking "who?" I'm not surprised. She got scant coverage in the American media. Of course, this was to protect our new president, as this incident occurred back in '09.
I only stumbled across it while researching Islam for my book. I stumbled across the HBO documentary "For Neda".
Neda was a young Iranian Woman caught in traffic due to the protesting of Ahmedinejad's rigged election. With no wartning, a single shot rang out and Neda had been struck in the upper chest. She collapsed as people crowded around her trying to help her and staunch the bleeding. There was someone on the street with a cell phone that captured it all on video and uploaded it to the internet. The video rocketed around the globe and was seen by presidents and other heads of states within minutes of the event.
Joining me tonight is a human rights activist from Iran who lives in exile outside of Iran. We're using an ingenious method to conduct the interview, as She still has family in Iran and prefers to keep her identity to herself to avoid harm to herself or her family.
Listen closely for insights from a voice of the Iranian street.
You wont be disappointed.
It's good to talk.
