MP Blames Zionist Lobby for Human Rights Allegations against Iran

"The carrot and stick policy against other countries which we saw was used in the recent (human rights) resolution against Iran shows that the hidden hands of the Zionist lobby are behind the scene of the human rights allegations," Elahian told Iran's state-run radio on Tuesday.

She also reiterated that because of the very same policy pursued by the West under the influence of the Zionist lobby Iran will not allow the UN human rights special rapporteur to travel to the country over human rights issues.

Elahian said that Iran merely accepts those human rights rapporteurs who focus and write their reports on a special issue, and underlined that Tehran would never bow to political pressures in this regard.

Yesterday, Vice-Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's Human Rights Committee Mohammad-Karim Abedi said that the committee had emphasized in a Sunday meeting that the UN Human Rights special rapporteur would not to be allowed into the country.


The UN Human Rights Council in March narrowly approved a US and Swedish-backed proposal for appointing a special rapporteur to investigate allegations of human rights violations in Iran.

"The United States, the UK and the Zionist regime (of Israel) are the greatest violators of the human rights in the world," said Abedi, adding that "the United Nations Human Rights Council should investigate into the violation of human rights in those countries instead of Iran."

The violation of the human rights allegations against Iran are aimed at political objectives, said the Iranian lawmaker who is also a member of the Parliament's Foreign Policy and National Security Commission.

The Islamic Republic denounced the move as politically-motivated, saying that the measure is aimed at diverting attention from human rights abuses committed by the United States.
