International flaw: With new Iran sanctions, POTUS calls Tehran's kettle black

04-10-2010 15:52

On Wednesday afternoon, in a joint press conference, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner announced that the United States had imposed a new set of unilateral sanctions, including a travel ban and freezing of assets, against a number of top-ranking Iranian officials whom it accused of "serious and sustained human rights abuses" since the presidential election last year. The measure, which comes less than four months after the UN Security Council's latest illegal resolution and the Obama administration's last round of economic sanctions, was enacted via an Executive Order signed into effect last night by the President.

The double standards of the US government continue to betray its real intentions and motivations regarding the Middle East, namely the maintenance of military hegemony, allegiance to Zionist mythology, and the continued demonization and threatening of any country that dares question the moral superiority of the United States or opposes American and Israeli imperialism in the region.

Leicester City Council has applied to the Home Secretary for a ban on any march by the EDL and the police claim to have intelligence that the EDL intend to attack a mosque and march to the predominantly Muslim area of Highfields.

As usual, the authorities, both political and religious, are urging people to stay at home, but hundreds of people are pledging to demonstrate against the EDL. A recent Indymedia post called for “an overwhelming presence of people opposed to the EDL” to show solidarity with the people of Leicester.

The location of the EDL demo has now been announced as Humberstone Gate East, near the former International Hotel, in Leicester city centre. It is not far from the Asian areas of Highfields and Belgrave Road.
