MP: Overlooking People's Demands Cause of UK Unrests

"The British royal family will not be able to resist the people's demands," member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Mehdi Mehdizadeh told ICANA Wednesday.

He deplored the police violence which he believed was more severe than the people's violence and said London's resistance against people's wishes would backfire.

The lawmaker said the wave of awakening among the people of UK proved the accuracy of the IRI Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's prediction that this wave will engulf Europe soon. "And we see that after Spain and Portugal, it is now the turn of UK."

He said the murder of a black youth by the British police had sparked the unprecedented protests, adding that this was a pretext for the people to voice their strong objection to the royal system and demand an end to it.

British Prime Minister David Cameron has promised tough action against anyone stoking violence in the streets. He said his government will do everything necessary to restore order.

His comments came following a third night of violence in the capital London with youths looting shops, torching buildings and attacking police.

The disorder spread beyond the capital to Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and Bristol on Monday evening and early Tuesday.

Cameron said 16,000 officers will be deployed in the streets on Tuesday night to prevent a fresh eruption of unrest. He said the parliament will be recalled on Thursday to discuss the recent incidents.

Over 450 people have been arrested since the violence began on Saturday.

It first erupted after a peaceful protest in Tottenham over the fatal shooting of a black man by police.

But some blame the disorder on deeper social problems like unemployment and insensitive policing.

Earlier on Wednesday, Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad strongly condemned the violent treatment of British protesters by police forces in the United Kingdom.

President Ahmadinejad referred to British protesters as “opposition” and condemned the killing of demonstrators by the British police.

The true opposition in Britain is the people that are pushed to the ground and beaten on London streets and slain and yet "no one hears their voice," he added.

He stated that the main issues facing the world today include discrimination, wars and the type of management in societies, and said the ongoing global problems are rooted in “misguided management.”

The Iranian chief executive also said that the world has witnessed the worst management during recent centuries, noting, “The current era is even worse than the era of slavery.”

Addressing UK’s high ranking officials, he said they should bear in mind that the world has been changed dramatically and the era of vandalism under any name or title is over.

President Ahmadinejad also urged the UN Security Council to take action over the rioting in Britain, arguing it was hypocritical in its reaction to such events.

"The U.N. is silent. Human rights bodies are silent," Ahmadinejad said. "If one percent of this happens in countries that oppose the West, they scream until they are hoarse."

"Why is the Security Council silent?" he said, also questioning its willingness to take action directed at one of its five veto-wielding permanent members.

"They should change their attitude, change their management and deal with their own people instead of intervening in others' affairs," he said, referring to Britain's role in Afghanistan, Iraq and its participation in the NATO airstrikes on Libya.
