“It is also that major national security decisions over Syria and nuclear enrichment are ultimately made by Khamenei and the Revolutionary Guards, who can very quickly and decisively overrule any assurances given by the likes of Zarif – and even, for that matter, Rouhani.”

Iran’s Top Five Human Rights Abuses
Great article highlighting some of Iran’s worst human rights abuses. This post comes at a great time to highlight the immense HYPOCRISY of Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif’s youtube video post two days ago. He asked for countries at the next round of nuclear talks to honor Iran’s dignity and give them the respect they deserve. WHAT A JOKE. How does Iran have any dignity when they have the highest per capita execution rate in the world, among MANY other human rights atrocities. Keep this in mind while the newest round of nuclear talks unfold….
Here are the 5 human rights abuses discussed in the article:
- Right to Assemble
- Right to a Fair Trial
- Freedom of Religion
- Freedom of the Press
- Freedom of Speech
