From the Tehran Times, with thanks to Ana from Holland:
TEHRAN (MNA) — Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said on Sunday that Iran is seriously concerned about the rise in human rights violations in Europe and especially the rise in anti-Islamic sentiments and the treatment of minority groups.
Asefi made the remarks in response to a question about the decision of the European Union to lodge a protest with Tehran expressing concern about the human rights situation in Iran.
“The issue of human rights is on the agenda of Iran-EU talks and this is not something one-sided, and we have also some criticism about their (human rights) situation,” Asefi told reporters at his weekly press briefing.
“We have serious concerns about human rights violations in Europe, especially the rise in anti-Islamic sentiments in some European states, most notably in the Netherlands where a filmmaker insulted the sensitivities of Muslims by making a very unpleasant movie,” he added.
The brazen hypocrite Asefi doesn’t seem to have mentioned that that film maker was murdered in cold blood by a Muslim. And as for the human rights situation in Europe, are Europeans lashing teenagers for violating religious rules? Are they making laws devaluing the lives of those who do not belong to the dominant religion? Are they flogging and stoning abused girls?
