You can’t make this stuff up. The Secretary General of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights says the world should be thanking Iran for executing as many people as it has killed in the past few years. Becaues they’re druggies. I am not kidding.
The Islamic republic’s execution rate, which has soared to ghastly heights since self-described moderate Hassan Rouhani became president last year, should be viewed as a “positive marker of Iranian achievement,” according to the head of Iran’s Judiciary Human Rights Council.
The world should view Iran’s executions and violent crackdowns as a “great service to humanity,” Mohammad Javad Larijani said this week, speaking at a Human Rights Council meeting.
Larijani said that while the world criticizes Iran’s government for an increased number of executions, it should be understood that the killings are a result of Iran’s aggressive clampdown of drug trafficking.
Let me repeat his title: The Secretary General of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights
He also insists that Iran is not trying to build nuclear weapons.
Oh, and he’s also called homosexuality a disease.
Yeah, I’m so glad the Obama administration is dealing with these pillars of humanity. No danger at all that they’re lying.
