U.S. Criticized For Ferguson–By China, Egypt, Russia And Iran!
Countries responsible for some of the world’s worst human rights abuses are watching the United States act like they do. From China came “a comment piece published by the state-run Xinhua news service on Monday excoriating the US for the ‘racial divide’ that ‘still remains a deeply-rooted chronic disease that keeps tearing US society apart, just as manifested by the latest racial riot in Missouri’.”
Russia Today, the state-owned broadcaster in Moscow, has likewise been reporting on events in Ferguson via a live blog, while Iran’s leader, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, has taken to Twitter to peddle a more insidious and conspiratorial line, blaming the riots in Ferguson on Jewish control of the US government.

Egypt called for restraint in the United States.
The country’s foreign ministry told the state-run MENA news agency that US authorities should deal with the protests in the city of Ferguson in accordance with US and international stardards, the report on Tuesday said.
Egyptian foreign ministry spokesman, Badr Abdel-Aty, hoped investigations would reveal the truth about “Mike Brown’s murder”, it added, referring to the black US teenager whose killing by a white police officer triggered protests.[su_sky_ad]
