Iran & The French Riots

I've Been Thinking:
The Iranian press is expressing views on the Muslim riots in France.
The popular daily Jomhouri Islami made it very clear in an editorial:
Hamid-Reza Asefi, an Iranian foreign ministry spokesman, called the police violent and said "we hope that the French government would respect the rights of people there and pay attention to their demands in a peaceful way, so that they would not continue to witness the violation of citizens' rights in that country."
The Iranians truly have a warped sense of reality.
