    Iran Demands UK Restraint With Protesters, Seeks To Send Human Rights Delegation To Observe

    Reports the Jerusalem Post:

    As riots have spread across the UK leading to hundreds of arrests and the death of one 26-year-old man, Iran has called on British police to avoid using violence against rioters and demonstrators, and to show “restraint” when dealing with protesters, Iranian FarsNews Agency reported.

    The Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast reportedly asked the UK government to open dialogue with “protesters,” and has called on human rights groups to investigate the killing of Mark Duggan, 29, which sparked the violent riots that has seen substantial damage and theft.

    Deputy Head of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hossein Ebrahimi also told Fars news that he had requested from the British government to allow an Iranian human rights delegation to visit the country, and “study human rights violations.”

    They deserve each other.

    I am sure the Iranians and the Egyptians are all impressed. Not favorably, but impressed.
