This morning was the funeral of the 81 year old Ezzatollah Sahabi, the reformist Iranian dissident. Haleh Sahabi was walking ahead of the funeral holding a wreath, when security forces tried to break up the funeral procession and steal Sahabi's coffin.
Haleh resisted the thugs and insisted that the funeral procession should proceed as planned. Islamic Republic security thugs attacked her, kicking her repeatedly and punching her with a knuckle duster. Haleh collapsed at her father's funeral and later died as a result of her injuries.
Haleh Sahabi was 55 years old and a Koranic expert. She was also a member of Mother's for Peace and was arrested, two years ago, during the protests outside the Iranian parliament when Ahmadinejad was taking the oath of office. She was sentenced to two years imprisonment by the revolutionary court. She was given leave from Evin prison to attend her father's funeral.
This is the Islamic Republic! so scared of the smalles gathering. Even the funeral of an 81 year old man is intolerable for these insecure savages. The thugs even kill a man's daughter during his funeral.
Once again the Islamic Republic has brought eternal shame on itself.
