William Hague with Terrorist Regime’s Man   Moral Police violating Individual Liberties

When the leaders of free world have lost their moral compass

By Freydoon Khoie

There is an inherently immoral diplomatic notion that countries don’t have permanent allies, only permanent interests. This belief, predicated upon the realpolitik compromises of modern-day statecraft, essentially makes for very strange bedfellows.

  Watching William Hague and Catherine Ashton warm up to members of a terrorist regime under the guise of ‘progress’ on weaning Khamnei’s terrorist regime off its desired nuclear nipple is absurd to say the least.

It is indeed a sad day for the hundreds of millions of young, hopeful pro-democracy forces in West Asia and North Africa to see that the leaders of one of the leading democracies like the United Kingdom are cozying up to internationally acknowledged terrorist regimes like the one in Iran. How low can European’s morality sink in the pursuit of economic interests? At what cost of ethical compromise are they willing to feed their children?

How could William Hague, foreign minister of the United Kingdom - a country with the oldest constitutional monarchy in the world, internationally-respected rule of law, highest respect and protection of individual liberty, freedom of religion, separation of religion from the state, freedom of speech, press and assembly - allow himself to sink so low as to even contemplate standing shoulder-to-shoulder (and laughing!) With a member of a tyrannical regime that surpasses the atrocities committed even by Genghis Khan?

Khamenei’s regime is a well-documented criminal establishment, known to be the most repressive, violent and corrupt regime on the planet. Is that a fitting criteria to permit Hague to be equal and stand shoulder to shoulder in a press conference? Is material gain really that valuable that all the pretentions of morality, ethics, honor and social obligation can be forgotten?

No one in the world is better informed than William Hague and Catherine Ashton about the draconian state of affairs and the tragic violations of human rights and repression of opposition leaders in Iran. Yet, you see them warmly welcoming these matchstick criminals and even protecting and defending them and treating them as though they are truly decent people, legitimately elected by the people of Iran. Imagine the shock and dismay to watch Great Britain so blatantly in bed with the Mullahs’ regime that are loathed by 50 million people of Iran.

Imagine the shock and dismay to watch Great Britain so blatantly in bed with the Mullahs’ regime that are loathed by 50 million people of Iran.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry stated "We haven't been speaking for 35 years. We just talked more in 30 hours than we have in those prior 30 years," but is that a solid reason for chumming up to the despots in Tehran? Representatives from Iran and the 5+1 - the US, UK, France, Russia and China plus Germany – planned to meet again in Geneva later this month to resume discussions! Discussions about what? About asking a repressive, tyrannical, unelected and illegitimate regime to stop building a nuclear bomb which is almost completed secretly? And the only reason they have come to Geneva is to pretend that they are willing to negotiate so that U.S. led sanctions are eased. But what about the long list of human rights violations and terrorizing our people for 34 years? What about political reform, freeing the vast number of political prisoners, halting executions, allowing opposition political parties, freeing their leaders from jail and constitutional reform?
