Iran summons Italian envoy over G8 protests

Fri, 10 Jul 2009

Iran summons the Italian Ambassador to Tehran Alberto Bradanini in protest against the violent suppression of anti-G8 protesters.

Bradanini was summoned to the Iranian Foreign Ministry on Friday to hear Tehran’s concerns about the "violent suppression of justice-seeking protesters by the Italian police."

A Foreign Ministry statement included Iran’s "strong condemnation" of the "suppressive actions…which are clear breaches of civil freedoms and fundamentals of democracy."

The Foreign Ministry’s Director for West European Relations ‘condemned the use of violence by Italian police against protesters and opponents of the Group of Eight industrialized nations (G8) Summit in the city of L’Aquila, and demanded the compliance of the Italian government with its international obligations’. …

    This is a joke right?
    Iran is concerned for protesters rights?

      i can see clearly this is a poke in the eye of the liberal fawning press that is more concerned about what the boy king has to say and what mo is wearing than what is really going on. do you not remember that when mr bush was pres they were all busy reporting the protesting outside in the streets than what was happening inside the g8

    Is this another move on Iran’s part to give the “big boys” (of G8) and the world the middle finger salute???

    Methinks so.

    I take two days off from the news for my own health and sanity, yet come back to this.

    Shameless, soulless, relentless.. and absolutely hilarious.

    I don’t believe the Iranian gov’t allows usage of words from the Zionist infidel colonialist vernacular… but what they ARE doing is trying to equate their oppression of their own people in Iran with the police PROTECTION of what’s going on in Italy (regardless of anyone’s personal feelings about how asinine G8 is). Obviously the Italian police are not purposefully brutalizing people and sniping at women, but I digress…

    This is similar to the way our president equated the Holocaust with the current Palestinian “suffering” in his Cairo speech. ie: “I will make a pretense of conceding YOUR point if you agree that MINE is equally as valid.” Obviously the purposeful murder, torture, and enslavement of 6 million Jews, plus another 5 million Christians, gypsies, etc is in no way equivalent to the tiniest nation in the Middle East defending itself from constant rocket fire, snipings, and homicide bombings. The move on the part of the Iranians is simply about playing into the European socialist mindset of “fair” and “equal”… if they can equate THEIR suppression with what’s going on in Italy, and give THEM grief about it, they can then turn around and say, “Well why is it OK for YOU and not for US?” These people aren’t stupid…just incredibly good at deception.

    I’m confused. I the Obama’s on news, with pope. Michelle and her head covering. lol. The girls came along on this one. A bit dangerous. I’ll bet they polluted the air, aside the 2 Air-Force Ones, the rest of the family would have taken a private jet. This is a long expensive DisneyWorld vacation leaving a trail of destruction at the speed of light.
