Iran censures brutality of four Arab states
FEBRUARY 23, 2011 – “Members of Iran’s Parliament (Majlis) have condemned the recent violent crackdown on Majlis,pro-democracy protesters by the governments of Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, and Morocco.
In a statement issued by 191 Iranian lawmakers, the recent brutal onslaught by rulers of the four Arab countries were censured, Mehr News Agency reports.
“The regretful events in Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, and Morocco and the ruthless slaughter of unarmed people of these countries by the authoritarian rulers is reminiscent of crimes that all dictators throughout history have committed in order to stay in power,” read the statement.
“Their [the dictators’] fate, from Pharaoh to [former Iraqi dictator] Saddam [Hussein], [ousted Egyptian dictator Hosni] Mubarak and [deposed Tunisian ruler Zine El Abidine] Ben Ali has been a humiliating collapse,” it said.
In the statement, the Iranian lawmakers also condemned the “silence and ambiguous positions of the United States” specially with regards to the violence carried out by the Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi, stating that such vague positions reflect the fact that the US sacrifices human rights in pursuit of its interests.
The parliamentary statement also urged the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) to “take practical steps” to stop the rulers of the these repressive countries from killing their people.” – Source PRESS TV (Iran).
