IHRC further condemns the hypocrisy of Western governments who for decades have propped up, financed and supported the oppression and human rights abuses of the tyrannical regimes of Mubarak, Ben Ali, Saleh and others in the Muslim world.
IHRC Chair Massoud Shadjareh stated:
“Token statements of criticism now from Obama and others is a matter of too little, too late, and will not fool the Arab people who are finally breaking free from the life sentence they received over 30 years ago.
“We urge the West to end their promotion and sponsorship of tyrants whose crimes against humanity have bred intolerable resentment and anger throughout the Muslim world.”
