Iran Will Expose US ‘Rights Violations’

From Iran’s Press TV:

Iran allocates $20m to expose US ‘rights violations’

Sun, 23 Aug 2009

A majority of Iranian lawmakers have approved a bill that will fund a program intended to expose “breaches of human rights” in the US.

In a vote on Sunday, the parliamentarians voted by a margin of 189 to 21 to pass the bill which will allocate $20 million toward the efforts, reported the Iranian Labor News Agency.

"The Americans have repeatedly approved measures to assist Iranian opposition, especially recently [they approved] a $55-million allocation by the US Senate," said Alaeddin Boroujerdi, who head the influential Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee.

The new law consists of a single article, which stipulates: "To counter the unfair restrictions imposed by the United States and other Western powers in the arena of information technology, and in order to expose the numerous and increasing instances of breaches of human rights and to defend legal trends that stand against that country’s methods, the sum of $20 million is allocated from the currency reserves fund."

In defending the measure, Boroujerdi called it "necessary" and said: "We must respond in kind to America’s injustice and tyranny and the interference of this country against Iran."

“With the allocation of this budget,” the senior lawmaker said. “We will show to the world that Iran’s Majlis is active as a defender of the rights of the nation in the face of US greed.”

Hey, why not?

They are probably just inspired by our own administration.

Behold the top stories of the moment at Press TV:

Do they have enough ACLU lawyers, or should we send them some more?

Will Mr. Holder file amicus briefs?

    How do they know what Human Rights are?

      Well, golly LD. From all those Human Rights organizations that stormed down there right after that young gal got shot on video.

      Oooooooooooops!!! Never mind.

  2. 12 Gauge Rage says:

    Come on LD, you know how this game is played. Never mind that Iran itself is interfering in the stability of it’s neighbors like Lebanon, Iraq, etc. All that matters is that they put such a spin on the injustice we’re supposedly giving them. And our clueless media will lap it all up and plead for their cause.

    This should be interesting.

  4. proreason says:

    Will Iran be doing this on its own or in partnership with the Obamistration?

  5. beautyofreason says:

    When the Obama administration refuses to advocate American values for fear of offending the rest of the world, is it any surprise that the Islamonazis and various assorted thugs fill the vacuum with their propaganda?

    I seem to remember a quote by Reagan about how a bully will go to your doorstep if you let him in your yard.

    Eric Holder called white people cowards for not discussing racial problems, and Glen Beck spoke up, and spoke his observations and now he’s being villianized. He was brave.

    I would like people to set your television stations on his show, to keep the ratings up. He is being punished for not being a coward. Now he’s be treated worst than muslim terrorists.

    Obama can call his grandmother a “typical racist white woman”, but Americans can’t bring up the president seems to favor dark skin over whites. Broke up with a girlfriend because she was white, and it made him sick to see pictures of his white girlfriends family. What a racist chip on Obama’s shoulder towards people he hasn’t met. Her parents welcomed into their home, just to have him
    act racist towards white? The hypocricy is too much.
