From HRW, in a press release about human rights abuses in Bahrain:
United Nations member states should scrutinize Bahrain’s deplorable human rights record during the country’s Universal Periodic Review (UPR) at the UN Human Rights Council on May 21, 2012, Human Rights Watch said today.

The voice of the international community has been subdued regarding Bahrain’s manifold violations, especially compared with the international response to abuses in Syria, Libya, Iran, and other Middle Eastern countries, Human Rights Watch said.
Iran's FARS News reports on this statement, but it seemed to have a problem with HRW's list of countries performing human rights abuses:
The voice of the international community has been subdued regarding Bahrain's manifold violations, especially compared with the international response to abuses in Israel, Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries, Human Rights Watch said.
The list of countries engaging in human rights abuses changed from "Iran and its allies" to "Iran's enemies."

That's Iranian "news" for you.




(HRW's Arabic version of the press release is identical to the English one.)

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money.
