They’ve learned well from Islamic groups in the West: all criticism is an act of hatred. All disapproval of various Islamic teachings and practices is an act of hatred. All accusations of wrongdoing are acts of hatred and the fruits of thoughtcrime.
“‘US after fueling Iranophobia in world’,” from Iran’s own PressTV, October 14:
Iran’s Permanent Ambassador to the UNESCO Mohammad-Reza Majidi describes Washington’s latest allegations against Iran are part of the US Iranophobia project.
Majidi told IRNA in Paris on Friday that President Barack Obama entered the White House with a slogan of “change,” however, like his predecessors he is dependent on different lobbies.
Wink-wink. They get more specific below.
The Iranian envoy said the US administration has created the recent media hype in an attempt to cover up its failures in Afghanistan and Iraq, and to divert attention from the nationwide protest rallies against poverty, unemployment, corporatism, social inequality, and other shortcomings.
Majidi said that the latest anti-Iran plot is in line with Islamophobia projected managed by the US.
On Tuesday, the US Justice Department accused Iran of involvement in a plot to assassinate Saudi Arabian Ambassador to Washington, Adel Al-Jubeir, with help from a suspected member of a Mexican drug cartel.
Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast rejected the accusation, saying such ‘ludicrous’ claims hinged on the hostile joint stances adopted by the US and Israel against the country.
Iran’s envoy to the UN, Mohammad Khazaei, has also filed a complaint against the United States, and described the anti-Iranian allegations as an “insult to the intelligence” of the people of the world.
“We are used to the baseless allegations made by some US officials over the past three decades, but the big lie they have told today is so unfounded that it sounds like the work of Hollywood’s scenario writers,” Khazaei said in an interview with CNN on Wednesday.
“It is a major insult to the intelligence of ordinary people in the US and the world,” he added.
The latest accusations come as the United States and its staunch ally, Israel, have devised numerous anti-Iran plots over the past years, including the targeted assassination of Iranian scientists.
