Her name was Neda

Watching this young girl’s last moments on earth is gut wrenching.  But we must bear witness.  We must honor her.

By all accounts she was standing with her father watching the protests when she was shot by a sniper.

Her face will surely become the everlasting symbol of the people who are protesting for democracy in Iran.

RIP, Neda

  2. Columbia University (aka Bir Zeit on the Hudson) did not exactly distinguish itself by inviting that ugly dwarf Imadinnerjacket to speak last year.

      Last night, Columbia students protested in support of the Iranians in the streets.

      It did ring a tad hollow.

        I am glad to her that. The Columbia University Middle East Studies Department is a hot bed of Islamofascist supporting lunatics – Joseph Massad being the most notorious one.

        Speaking of Columbia University I love Caroline Glick’s take on it (which I appropriated)

        “I grew up in Chicago’s ultra-liberal, anti-American and anti-Israel stronghold of Hyde Park. Hyde Park’s newest famous resident is Barack Obama. He fits right into a neighborhood I couldn’t wait to leave.

        I made aliyah to Israel in 1991, two weeks after receiving my BA in Political Science from Beir Zeit on the Hudson — otherwise known as Columbia University.”
