Various Iranian officials continue to project Iran's sins onto Great Britain

The drum-beat goes on against that evil human rights predator, the middle-sized Satan, otherwise known as Great Britain. According to an IRIB Radio headline, "Britain lacks democracy":
A senior Iranian lawmaker says the recent violent crackdown by the British government on popular protests across the UK shows the "lack of democracy in Britain."

Chairman of Iran's Majlis (parliament) Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy Alaeddin Boroujerdi criticized the British police for the brutal treatment of protesters, saying there is no respect for human rights in the UK. [...]
Meanwhile at Fars:
"The unrests are the result of years of (Britain's) discrimination, undesirable living conditions and chronic and long-term injustice," Head of the parliament's Human Rights Commission Zohreh Elahian told FNA on Saturday.

She predicted that unrests and uprisings in the European country will continue in future despite the British police's brutal suppression of protestors, and said the British government should account for its crimes against its people at international human rights organizations.[...]
Another Fars article featuring a female official is still promoting the Iranian peace-keeper idea:
[...] "Today, the British police have embarked on brutal suppression of the people and created an atmosphere of panic and intimidation all throughout the country…in fact at present the conditions are intolerable in Britain, a country which claims to be advocate of human rights," member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Fatemeh Alia told FNA on Saturday.

She lashed out at the international community for keeping mum about the violent suppression of the people by the London regime, and said the issue unveils the double-standard policy of the international community towards human rights.

Alia also called on the UN Human Rights Council to break silence about the events in Britain, and called on UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to condemn violence in Britain.

The lawmaker also asked for deployment of impartial peacekeeping forces in Britain to end violence, and added that the Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to dispatch peacekeepers to the crisis-hit country through international human rights bodies.

On Thursday, Commander of Iran's Basij (volunteer) forces Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said that Tehran is prepared to dispatch peacekeepers to London to help restore calm in the city. [...]
This could go on for some time, as long as there as any hint at all of unrest in England. There are three or four other articles on this theme at the moment just at Fars News.
