Murdered teen becomes...

...'voice of the Iranian revolution'...

The grisly murder of a 16-year-old protester named Neda at a demonstration in Teheran on Saturday was captured by at least two different cameras and posted on the popular video-sharing Web site, YouTube.

The longer video, which is 40 seconds in length, has been seen by over 60,000 viewers since it was posted Saturday.

"We sit here in the safe haven that is Canada and fret over having to get off our asses and drag ourselves into a polling station to vote just because it happens to be the summer. Meanwhile, these people are dying."

"Kind of puts things in perspective, eh?"

Remember the horrifying picture from the Vietnam War of the little girl running naked and crying before a napalm attack? The anonymous man standing defiantly before a tank during the Tiannemen Square massacre? This video is at least as powerful as those, and it will serve to define the struggle for democracy of the Iranian people.

And we sit here in the safe haven that is Canada and fret over having to get off our asses and drag ourselves into a polling station to vote just because it happens to be the summer. Meanwhile, these people are dying.

Kind of puts things in perspective, eh?

It does put it in perspective. Here in our third world country, under the socialists, we're halfway to Iran.

I wasn't prepared for what I saw on the video. It was her empty eyes. It broke my heart and really tore me up inside. I've added it to my list of things I need to know about Islam. It's now #2.
