TEHRAN (Iran News) – Int’l Bodies Serving the West. People around the world are gradually realizing this point that the international bodies do not act impartially and they act in a way to please the big powers, mainly the West, in dealing some incidents in the world.
The Islamic Republic of Iran due to its anti-West policy is one of the main targets of punishment and condemnation by these bodies and as soon as something happens in the country or abroad, these bodies take stand against Tehran by attributing some charges like human rights or meddling in the affairs of other countries. But when some crime against Iran is committed, these bodies pass it indifferently or even do not pay any heed to it.
On January 3, 2020, the U.S. committed one of the horrible state terrorism acts by assassinating Iranian hero Martyr General Qasem Soleimani and his comrade and Americans admitted it rudely but the international bodies stopped condemning at least verbally this crime and even some of them hailed the U.S. forces.
Of course, Iranians like many freedom-loving people in the world do not expect too mush from these bodies which are fed by the West and serve the Westerners and whatever the West dictates, they act.
On Saturday, Iran called on the United Nations General Assembly to issue a resolution condemning the US assassination of the country’s top anti-terror commander General Soleimani to safeguard international peace and uphold human rights.
In a statement released on Saturday, the Legal Department of the Iranian president’s office marked the second anniversary of the assassination of General Soleimani, who arrived on a diplomatic visit in Baghdad, where he was targeted in a U.S. drone strike.
The statement pointed out that former U.S. president Donald Trump openly claimed responsibility for the heinous crime at the time, saying, “This dangerous move by the US government came while the UN Charter, as a fundamental document and basis of international consensus in the post-War period, prohibits governments from engaging in acts that are detrimental to international peace and security.”
It said the UN General Assembly should “take all legal initiatives within its authority, including the adoption of a resolution condemning the assassination of government and diplomatic officials by [another] government [and] take measures to prevent such crimes in the future.”
The statement also lamented the fact that the U.S. government infringes upon international laws and regulations via its extreme unilateralism while the international community remains silent.
Undoubtedly, it continued, international peace will be even more in danger if the perpetrators of the terrorist attack are free to walk with impunity.
General Soleimani was assassinated near Baghdad International Airport on January 3, 2020. His companions, including Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, who served as the deputy chief of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), were also killed during the raid.
It will be a good test for the UNGA to prove its impartiality for spreading peace and justice in the world but we do not pin any hope on an anti-U.S. reaction or resolution from the UNGA because of bitter previous experiences.
In another move on Saturday, the secretary general of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights criticized silence and inaction of international bodies over the killing of the country’s police forces in their fight against terrorists, armed smugglers and thugs, saying countries and global organizations must uphold their responsibilities in dealing with the elements that undermine peace, stability and security.
In a Saturday letter to Michelle Bachelet Jeria, the United Nations high commissioner for human rights, Kazem Gharibabadi, who also serves as the Iranian judiciary chief’s deputy for international affairs, said some countries are pursuing a selective and political approach to terrorist groups and international smugglers.
He added that around 40 Iranian police forces have lost their lives from March 21 to December 3, 2021 in the fight against criminals and armed smugglers equipped with all kinds of smart weapons and heavy equipment.
Imagine this that Iranian enforcement forces kill some drugs smugglers in their encounters or Iranian court sentences the smugglers to death penalties. Suddenly all international bodies and even this Ms. Bachelet Jeria begin criticizing Tehran and accuse Iran of committing anti-human rights acts like what happened during the execution of a young murderer.
Pointing to “numerous” statements issued by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights against Iran, Gharibabadi slammed lack of even a single statement condemning the terrorist and armed acts against the police forces of a country that has “rendered the greatest services to the international community through the fight against drug trafficking, human trafficking and organized crime.”
History has shown us that Iranians or other nations who do not give in to the Western powers should not expect any impartiality from such international bodies which are used as tools for paving the ground for domination of the arrogant powers. But one day the whole world will realize this and will take a serious action against these bodies and will reform them in favor of justice and impartiality. Time is ticking.
