Iran’s Judiciary Chief Slams West's Stance on Terrorism, Human Rights
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran's Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani on Wednesday deplored double-standard attitude adopted by the western countries towards the issues of human rights and terrorism.
Western countries view some terrorist crimes as “good” and some of them as “bad”, while terrorism is a bad and criminal phenomenon in any form, Amoli Larijani said.
"Terrorism should be dealt with honestly."
The judiciary chief said the West’s double-standard attitude towards terrorism and their support for Israel’s state-sponsored terrorism against the innocent Palestinians were the key factors behind the spread of terrorism in the world.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Amoli Larijani referred to the terrorist attacks carried out in the name of Islam as a plot to spread “Islamophobia” in the world, and blamed the plot on the western countries and the Zionist regime of Israel.
“Such measures (terrorist attacks) are the begining of a coordinated move to spread Islamophobia," he said, adding that after recent attacks in France the violence against Muslims and Islamic center and mosques has been intensified.
Iranian officials have on many occasions warned Western countries against the repercussions of backing Takfiri militants and predicted that more terrorist attacks would target the West.
The remarks by the Iranian judiciary cheif came after a string of terrorist incidents in France that took the lives 17 victims in three days of violence that began with an attack on the Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly on Wednesday and ended with Friday's dual hostage-taking at a print works outside Paris and kosher supermarket in the city.
