Judiciary head urges West to stop double standards against terrorism

TEHRAN, Jun. 14 (MNA) – Head of the Judiciary said Western countries need to stop double standards in addressing the issue of terrorism.

Ayatollah Sadegh Amoli Larijani pointed to the usual warnings posed by critics of America’s dual behavior towards direct and indirect support for terrorism, underlining “serious and comprehensive confrontation with terrorism requires that Western countries put an end to their double standards in addressing the issue by clinging to ethical and humanitarian standards."

Later, the official outlined the removal of Saudi Arabia from a UN blacklist of countries which violate rights of children as another instance of dual behavior by international organizations and the influence they receive from great powers or rich countries.

“It remains absolutely unfortunate that these organizations let Saudi Arabia and Muslim allies be removed from a blacklist for killing children in Yemen though they have slaughtered many innocent children,” he added.

Amoli Larijnai also condemned the recent mass shooting in Orlando of the US emphasizing that “by nature, no man would accept the killing of innocent people."

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has repeatedly stated that it condemns terrorism in all dimensions since murdering innocent people is not acceptable from a humane point of view,” Judiciary head underlined.

Highlighting that terrorism cannot be classified with ‘good’ or ‘bad’ titles, Amoli Larijani said “Iran cannot accept that Jabhat al-Nusra is a good terrorist group unlike what the US is trying to prove.”

“Interestingly, if a terrorist attack occurs inside America, it would mark a sample of ‘bad terrorism’,” he concluded.
