Neda Agha Soltan became the symbol of the Green Revolution in Iran in 2009 after she was shot and killed while running away from antiriot police. The grainy cell phone photo of her lying on the ground, with blood streaming from her nose and mouth, went viral. Her older sister later recalled that Neda had spoken about a university professor who was teaching about a vengeful God. Neda had said, "This is not my God. The God I worship is a compassionate and loving God" (Robin Wright, Rock the Casbah, Simon and Schuster).
