23-Feb-11: The authorities in Tehran would like us to know

For our "Annals of State-Managed Hypocrisy" files, today's extract from the ever-astonishing Iran-government controlled PressTV:
Iran censures brutality of 4 Arab statesWed Feb 23, 2011 12:32PM
Members of Iran's Parliament (Majlis) have condemned the recent violent crackdown on pro-democracy protesters by the governments of Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, and Morocco. In a statement issued by 191 Iranian lawmakers, the recent brutal onslaught by rulers of the four Arab countries were censured, Mehr News Agency reports.
“The regretful events in Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, and Morocco and the ruthless slaughter of unarmed people of these countries by the authoritarian rulers is reminiscent of crimes that all dictators throughout history have committed in order to stay in power,” read the statement.
If you can take it, the rest of this breathtaking piece of hutzpah is here.
