Iranís Mullahs Demand Justice for Trayvon: Foreign Ministry Criticizes Acquittal of Zimmerman
Washington Free Beacon ^ | July 19, 2013 1:15 pm | Adam Kredo

Iran’s foreign ministry on Friday criticized the acquittal of George Zimmerman and chastised the United States for widespread “racial discrimination.”

“The acquittal of the murderer of the teenage African American once again clearly demonstrated the unwritten, but systematic racial discrimination against racial, religious, and ethnic minorities in the US society,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Araqchi was quoted as saying by Iran’s state run Fars News Agency.

“The court ruling has also seriously put under question the fairness of the judicial process in the United States,” Fars reported Araqchi as saying.

Iranian officials said that Zimmerman’s trial for the murder of Trayvon Martin should have been conducted in a more “accurate and fair” manner.

“Several months on since a probe was launched [into the murder], the public opinion in the U.S. and across the world expect transparency, an accurate and fair judicial investigation into the case, with due regard to human rights principles for American citizens and a ban on discrimination against minorities in the country,” Araqchi said.

Fars reported that the Iranian “public views the court ruling as a follow-up to similar incidents such as the suspicious murder of the grandson of former African American Muslim leader Malcolm X, which the U.S. judicial system failed to probe,” according to the report.

Iran’s calls for justice came as a surprise to U.S. observers, who pointed out that the Iranian regime is notorious for beating opposition members, arresting journalists, stoning women to death, and publicly executing homosexual teenagers.

An Iranian woman, for instance, was ordered to be stoned to death in July 2010.

The regime also initiated a widespread crackdown on opposition forces in the lead up to its most recent elections, which international observers cited for being neither free nor fair.

Political prisoners in Iran have even attempted to commit suicide as a result of their abusive treatment.

Religious minorities, such as Christians and Jews, also have been arrested or worse.

As an Islamic state that operates under strict Sharia law, Iran has been known to engage in the cruel punishment of criminals.

Some have had arms or legs amputated for petty crimes, while other have been stoned to death.

Iran also leads the world in child executions, according to Amnesty International, which published a report entitled, “Iran: The Last Executioner of Children.”

Iran has also arrested children and imprisoned them until they turn 18, at which point them are killed, according to Amnesty. Iran killed eight children in 2005.

Former Pentagon adviser Michael Rubin called Iran’s criticism of the Zimmerman trial ridiculous.

“You’ve got to have some sympathy for the poor Foreign Ministry spokesman,” Runin said. “This is probably the first time he had to wait for a verdict before writing his statement which is why it took him almost a week to issue it.”

“Now that the Zimmerman verdict condemnation is out of the way, though, maybe [Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister] Seyed Abbas Araqchi can start penning his condemnations of all the verdicts issued by Iranian kangaroo courts for such troubling crimes as free speech, free association, and free practice of religion,” Rubin said.

I’m sure this has NOTHING to do with the fact that Zimmerman’s name is Jewish. Or that Zimmerman’s father is Jewish... Nope, that wouldn’t have anything to do with the side they took. /s

It’s a clever ploy designed to inflame the radicals and extremists here and abroad. 0zero must have been embarrassed to find out that the mullahs condemned America over Travon before he did.

... There needs to be a major propaganda push in this country to start spreading the truth about George Zimmerman's Character. Almost all that the world knows about the shooting incident is spawned by the anti-American race-bating media in this country. It's time to push back and respond to all of the hate that is being pushed out there

... Who is this George Zimmerman guy anyways? Is he really a foaming at the mouth, white hooded evil racist like we are being told by the president and all involved? Why doesn't the rest of the country know about Zimmerman's mentoring of underprivileged black youth? Why doesn't the public know about his community activities?

Heck .... Did you all know .... that the evil George Zimmerman forced the investigation, arrest and discipline of a police Lieutenant's son who beat up a homeless black man ....... How much does America really know about George Zimmerman? It's time for a media blitz before this all gets horribly out of hand!!!! If nothing is done .... then it will be our own damn fault for sitting back and doing nothing.

Exactly - my first thought was that it was a warning to remind him who he works for...
