Iran's young girls, the face of freedom, being poisoned by regime

An Iranian-American is praising the bravery of Iran’s women and girls, who are paying with their lives for standing up to a tyrannical government, but the question is being asked: Who is standing with them?

Mohamad Faridi, who leads Iranian Christians International, is pleading with the West to publicly defend Iranians who have marched and rallied for half a year and have paid a heavy price for demanding freedom. Protesters poured into the streets after Maysa Amini, 22, died from her injuries after thuggish police officers beat her and put her in a coma.

Amini was visiting family in Tehran in mid-September when morality police grabbed her as soon as she stepped off a train for her clothing. She was beaten as soon as she was thrown in a police van.

“Where are the feminists of the West. Where is the outcry? Faridi asks AFN. “Where is their support of the Iranian women.”

Against all odds, protesters are demanding freedom from their country’s strict Islamic rules. Hundreds have been killed, and thousands more arrested and tortured, but most incredibly Iran’s most courageous protesters are young school girls defiantly tossing their hijabs.

Faridi and ICI are now disturbed after reports from Iran confirm the regime is allowing radical Islamists to toss poisonous gas in all-girl classrooms. Those attacks date back to a school attack on November 30, according to a Time article, but it appears the West is just now learning more than 400 girls have been hospitalized, and one killed, since that first attack.

Faridi tells AFN the revolution taking place in Iran is being led by women against “Islamic theocracy,” which frightens the regime in power.

“So now, after this has happened,” he says, “ the Islamic regime is taking revenge on the girls by poisoning them by using gas in their schools.”

After the death of Fetemeh Rezaei, 11, from a gas attack, Iran’s thuggish authorities are pretending to be surprised and alarmed by the incidents, and are promising to investigate.

The death of Rezaei is being blamed on a long-term illness, the Time story said, which is similar to the lies the regime said about Amini’s crushed skull.
