Iran Delivers A ‘Massive National Insult’ to America

via NBC

Former U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman criticized the Biden administration for not exerting enough pressure on Iran, especially as Iran assumes the role of chair of the U.N. Human Rights Council Social Forum.

Friedman highlighted Iran’s human rights abuses, including the recent deaths of two women who were detained for not properly covering their faces.

He also mentioned Iran’s execution of dissenters and its foreign minister’s threatening behavior towards the U.S. and Israel.

Friedman argued that the U.S. is compromising its national dignity by participating in the Human Rights Council under Iran’s leadership.

Additionally, the text mentions Iran’s senior role at the U.N. Human Rights Council and its recent execution of two men for blasphemy.

It also notes the increase in attacks on U.S. troops in the Middle East and the U.S. airstrikes on Iranian proxies in response.

“Iran is delivering to the United States right now a massive national insult. I mean, we are just without dignity right now when it comes to Iran.”

“I mean, they attacked us 28 times since the war began. Our response was to, you know, send a couple of missiles over empty warehouses coupled with an apology,” Friedman said.

“Their human rights record is atrocious. I mean, these two beautiful young women, because they dared not cover their faces properly, were taken into custody.”

“Mahsa Amini died two days later from her wounds. Armita Garawand, who was in a coma for a month, she unfortunately just succumbed to her wounds. They shoot protesters in the streets. They take dissenters and they execute them publicly.”

“The foreign minister of Iran, we give him safe passage into our country. We protect him. He gets up in front of the United Nations, and he lectures the United States and Israel. He threatens us. And now they’re the head of the Human Rights Council? I mean, this is outrageous.”

“You know, during the Trump administration, I remember the conversation with the president and with Ambassador Haley. We left the Human Rights Council because we could not dignify that entity by being a member of it. Now, the Biden administration chose to come right back in, and they’re going to be sitting there in the Human Rights Council, which is going to be chaired by the Islamic Republic of Iran, one of the worst offenders in the world of human rights.”

“We are being deprived of whatever national dignity we have left by participating in this charade.”
