Larijani Reiterates Iran's Support for Wish of Nations

"As regards the recent developments in the region, Iran supported the will of the nations and didn't conceal its support because every nation is entitled to the right to decide its own fate on its own free will," Larijani said.

He further slammed Washington's attitude towards the recent developments in the region, and added, "The era for the United States' hegemonic attitudes has come to an end."

Larijani also blasted the western states' approach towards the recent uprisings in the region, saying that they have shown hypocritical and two-faced policies vis-à-vis the recent and current developments in the region.

The United States and certain other western countries have adopted a double-standard, and in cases a two-faced, approach towards popular protests against dictatorial regimes in the region. People in the Middle-East now believe that the western approach to the Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions has unveiled the true nature of their stance on democracy.

When asked if Mubarak was a dictator, United States Vice-President Joseph Biden said, "Mubarak has been an ally of ours in a number of things."

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also called on Hosni Mubarak's regime and Egyptian protesters to "show restraint."

Western analysts underline that such statements leave negative effects on the Muslim nations of the region because it creates the impression that the United States has double standards when it comes to human rights and democracy.

Political observers believe that the recent uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and Jordan are a result of America's double standards in the Middle-East and its biased policies against different nations.

The United States and Europe supported the dictatorship of Zine El Abidin Ben Ali, the ousted Tunisian President, and showed indifference to the Tunisian people's cries of protest.

In Egypt, the United States and the West also supported Mubarak in repressing Islamic groups and intellectuals and torturing freedom-seeking Egyptian youth.

Under the pretext of human rights, the United States criticizes establishments that respect human and civil rights but stand against its authoritarian policies.
