Iranian Rights Activist Assassinated in Texas

A female medical student who was a well known activist for women's rights in Iran was shot dead in Texas, as reported here.

The murder recalls the assassination of Ali Tabatabai in Bethesda, Maryland, following the Islamic Revolution in Iran. Click here for that story. The craven Carter administration allowed Tabatabai's assassin to escape.
