Iran's Valentine Day Martyrs
It is now confirmed that at least two protesters were killed on Monday by the barbaric Islamic Republic regime in Iran.'Almighty God! let me die standing up, for I despise lying low in humiliation'
Sane Jaleh was the first martyr of Monday's protests to be reported. He was a Sunni Kurdish student studying at Tehran Arts Faculty. Just like with Neda, the regime started making up stories that Jaleh was killed by MKO operatives during the protests. It is incredible that after three decades of claims by the Islamic regime that the MKO is dead and buried, they should be able to send their operatives to Iran and amidst all that security on Monday, carry out such an act and get away with it! But just to pour cold water on these ridiculous claims, here is a picture of Jaleh, first from the left, with the dissident cleric and spiritual leader of the Green Movement, the late Ayatollah Montazeri:
Mohamad Mokhtari is the second person confirmed killed in the protests.
