Supreme Leader: US an ally of terrorists

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the United States has become an ally of ‎terrorists, even renders support for the terrorist Munafeqin (hypocrites, a term used for MEK in Iran) ‎and removed it from its blacklist.‎

Addressing a large crowd of Iranian students on Wednesday, the leader noted, “It is a great shame ‎that the US presidential candidates compete with each other in their debates to show their devotion ‎to the Zionists and have made their nation their slave,” FNA reported.‎

Calling the US administration as the most hated one in the entire world, Ayatollah Khamenei reminded ‎the US administration's allegation about war on terror, and said the White House has fallen so deep ‎that “it has become an ally terrorists and it even renders support to the terrorist Monafeqin and ‎removed it from its blacklist.”‎

Pointing to the US claims on advocating human rights, the Leader said, "The most hostile anti-human ‎rights measures are taken with the US support. The Zionists who have been violating the rights of the ‎oppressed Palestinian nation for ‎‏60‏‎ year are fully supported by the US administration."‎

Ayatollah Khamenei also referred to the number of American prisoners in the country and said, "The ‎high number of inmates in the US which has placed the country atop the world (in this regard) runs ‎counter to the administration's allegations on supporting freedom of the people."‎

The US has been staunchly criticizing Iran's human rights conditions, while the country has been widely ‎blamed for trampling upon minority rights.‎

In November, ‎‏2010‏‎, the Iranian Foreign Ministry issued a report on the violation of human rights by ‎the US inside and outside its borders, and urged Washington to join the international conventions ‎which prohibit such crimes.‎

It was stressed in the Foreign Ministry report that the United States, as a self-proclaimed standard ‎bearer of defense for the human rights in the world, has despite the international community and the ‎UN demand, and even despite President Barack Obama's promise, still not shut down the ‎Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib horrendous prisons.‎

It is stressed in the report that the United States has not yet joined the most important convention ‎related to the economic, social and cultural rights that is among the most important human rights ‎documents.‎

The Children's Rights Committee of the United Nations, too, has announced that the United States has ‎been one of the greatest producers and distributors of the world child pornography products, while it ‎is now one of the only two countries in the world that have not yet joined the International Children's ‎Rights Convention.‎
