The case of the Iranian diplomat and the Western double-standard

The splendid concepts of human rights, international law, freedom and democracy can easily become overnight the subject of mockery and derision by the Western propaganda and misinformation machinery when these principles are going to be applied to countries outside the imperialist bloc like Iran.
