Iran has it's own very special brand of human rights. A land where there are no gays, but plenty of honor killings, threats to the US and Israel, torture, stonings, and holocaust deniers. With a human rights record like that, who needs Western criticism?
JW: Secretary of the Human Rights Headquarters of Iran's Judiciary Mohammad-Javad Larijani called on all Islamic states on Thursday to stand against the Western-style human rights.
Addressing a local gathering of judiciary officials, Larijani criticized the West's interpretation from the human rights.
He stated that after the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, the country committed to fulfill international undertakings on human rights.
Iran has decided to fulfill those international commitments in accordance to its interest as an Islamic country, stressed the official.
He explained, "Tehran's strategy is to conform international commitments on human rights to the Islamic concepts and then enforce" them nationwide....
Here is an example of enforcement.
“Farzad Kamangar’s case highlights how human rights abuses have become routine in Iran,” said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “Kamangar was tortured, subjected to unfair trial and now faces execution.”
