Larijani Warns of US Plots against Muslim Unity

"The US and the Westerners are seeking to create a religious or regional rift in the Muslim countries," Larijani said addressing the inaugural ceremony of the 24th International Conference on Islamic Unity here in Tehran on Saturday. "Today a great change and evolution is taking place in the region and dictators of the region, the US and the Zionists are standing against this awakening," he added. The speaker mentioned that the awakening of the regional nations has endangered the West's hegemony over the region, and said, "People have shown that their awakening is real, therefore the US and the Zionists should know that the more they stand against such awakening, the stronger the regional revolutions will be." The United States and certain other western countries have adopted a double-standard approach towards the popular protests against the dictatorial regimes in the region. People in the Middle-East now believe that the western approach to the ongoing revolutions in Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain and Yemen has unveiled the true nature of the West's 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 reveals 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, Bahrain and Jordan are the 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.
