COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN (AND PROMPTLY REMOVED)
It is a shame upon Europe and the United States that this savagery is allowed to continue.

What one group of fanatics in a different country in a different continent did to Jews three-quarters of a century ago cannot possibly excuse this ghastly behavior towards these people today.

Yet America and Europe behave as though it does.

Any government behaving in this fashion towards people who literally are their prisoners not only deserves severe condemnation but should be severely pressured to stop.

But, no, perhaps the worst human rights abuse on a per-capita basis by any government on the planet today is quietly allowed to continue with no real consequences.

And for the most part the mainstream press, serving the interests of indifferent governments, helps to keep it out of public awareness.

And the country carrying out these many barbarous acts is treated as though it were a worthy member of Western society.

It is not, full stop. Iran has a better human rights record, if truth be told.
