UN rights papers ignores cultures

UN documents on human rights have been written with complete disregard for cultures other than the West, Iran's human rights Chief Mohammad-Javad Larijani says.

“The United Nations is supposed to be home to all the nations, not just the home of the United States and England,” Larijani was quoted by IRIB News as saying on Sunday.

“Human rights documents largely overlook other cultures particularly the Islamic culture, we have to fully compensate [for this],” the top adviser to the leader of the Islamic Revolution added.


“Today those [countries] that have gone to war to thwart terrorism, have risen against nations, killing women, men and innocent children in the name of their war on terrorism,” Larijani continued.

“Their capitals have turned into safe havens for terrorists,” he said.

Larijani was referring to the European Parliament playing host to the notorious leader of the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), Maryam Rajavi, on the first day of December and only two days after the assassination of a nuclear scientist in Iran.

The MKO terrorists were voted off the EU list of terror organizations, following a European court ruling in favor of the group.

The “Rajavi cult” as they have become to be known, has claimed responsibility for many deadly attacks against Iranian and Iraqi civilians and cooperated actively with the regime of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

In one of their deadliest attacks, the MKO carried out a 1981 bombing that killed Iranian Judiciary chief Ayatollah Mohammad Beheshti and 71 other senior officials.

Among their most recent terror activities is the 1999 assassination of the chief-of-staff of Iran's Armed Forces, Ali Sayad Shirazi, just outside his house in the early hours of April 10th, as he was preparing to leave for work.

MKO is notorious for the cult like tactics it uses against its members, and the murder and torture of its defectors.

Numerous articles and letters posted on the Internet by family members of MKO recruits confirm reports of the horrific abuse that the group inflicts on its own members and the luring recruitment methods it employs.
