US racism, a serious global threat: HR official

US racism, a serious global threat: HR official
IRAN  - On an on line TV interview with the IRIB, Ali Bagheri the Deputy of International Affairs to the Judiciary considered the US government’s racist conduct as a serious global threat and a grave violation of human rights.

Regarding the silence of human rights bodies over the murder of a black citizen committed by the US police, Bagheri said that according to the statistics, three US citizens are killed by the police on a daily basis and the latest hideous crime which was indeed appalling has different aspects which need to be discussed.

Stressing on the racist approach which has led to such crimes, the Secretary of High Council for Human Rights quoted Obama as saying that such behaviors are common in the US and people feel the existing racial discrimination in their daily interactions as they walk on the street or watch birds in a public place.

The discriminatory approach which has caused two destructive world wars was resulted from the Nazis ideology which was based on egocentricity and has evolved in the US as a threat to the entire world, the human rights official said.

"The crime committed in the US a few days ago was against the peremptory norms of international law since it was not an ordinary incident and it does entail the international responsibility of the US government. The racial discrimination is a serious issue in the American society and ironically 60 per cent of the people who died of the coronavirus belonged to the black community", Bagheri added.

With respect to international human rights bodies, Bagheri said: "we have urged some of them not to take this serious issue for granted and there need to be fact-finding committees to take into consideration not only the recent crime but also the US discriminatory mechanisms inside the country, for such horrible incidents are both the violation of the American citizens' rights and a threat to all other nations.

"The policy the US government has always adopted towards countries like China, Iran, Russia, Iraq and Afghanistan is based on the mentioned approach. As Obama became the US president he wanted to take a new policy and withdraw the US troops from Iraq since he believed the country had already spent much more than what it had gained from the war. But, Obama never mentioned hundreds of thousands of people killed by the unilateral decision made by Bush!"

Trump has also mentioned the seven-trillion cost made by the US in western Asia and has confessed that they have made no profit out of it but he never mentions the US policies which have led to killing thousands of innocent people in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon and Yemen and the damage made to the infrastructures of these countries, Bagheri said.

The human rights chief also said that this approach reveals the egocentric attitude the US holds and as Imam Khomeini and the Supreme Leader have stated the US is a symbol of arrogance. Such threatening viewpoint has become clear to people all over the world and since it has become institutionalized in the intellectual structure of the US, it is considered as a threat to the international security and needs to be combated.

The human rights bodies need to react more strongly and seriously with respect to the racist and discriminatory policies adopted by the US government both inside and outside of the country so that they could prevent the harmful spread of such inhumane policies, Bagheri added.
