Speaker Slams Military Intervention in Regional States

"We oppose invasion of other countries and no country can succeed in suppressing the people of the other countries", Larijani said on Sunday, alluding to the Saudi military invasion of Bahrain and NATO's military intervention in Libya.

Speaking at a meeting with some members of parliament, Larijani reiterated that no occupying or invading country can attain its goals by massacring the other nations.

In March, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait deployed their troops in Bahrain to reinforce the brutal armed clampdown against mass protests in which people demand an end to the rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty.

Scores of Bahraini protesters have been killed and many others gone missing in the harsh crackdown since the beginning of the revolution in the Middle-Eastern country.

Larijani further pointed to the recent accusations raised by certain Persian Gulf Arab states about Iran's interference in Bahrain's internal affairs, and said such Arab states are seeking to project the blame on Tehran, while Iran has never invaded any other country and it is only after the materialization of the rights of the people in certain regional states.

Larijani underlined the importance and profoundness of the developments and popular uprisings in the region, and warned that enemies have hatched plots to derail these revolutions.

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, Jordan 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."

Western analysts underline that such statements leave negative effects on the Muslim nations of the region because they reveal 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.
