Below the official statement of the Iranian Foreign Ministry, released after the attack against the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris. Even if, from one side, Tehran condemned the terrorist attack, on the other side the Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham pointed out that “Taking advantage of freedom of expression and ideological extremism and character assassination of respectful figures of religions and nations as well as insulting divine faiths and their values and symbols…are not acceptable and are condemned“. In other words, the bad fanatic ideology of the terrorists is equated to the bad excess of “freedom of expression” of the victims. Shameful!
