Victims of Terrorism as the Examples of the Greatest Human Rights Violations in the Contemporary History
…from ADVT, Tehran
[ Editor’s Note: We sometimes get asked why we support this largely unknown NGO in Iran, and are always surprised. VT has always been human rights oriented, because of its roots in opposing the abuse of young Americans being drafted into the Vietnam war, one of the American fake wars that it wears in shame, for those who are able to see such things.
I remember clearly how shocked I was the first day I learned about the Iranian group. It was the 16,000 terror victims that caught my attention, that and instantly knowing this was a blacked out story in the US.
Why? It was because Israel and the US were connected to 12,000 of the victims, as part of their quiet proxy terror war against not only the Iran regime, but the innocent common Iranians that were slaughtered by the MEK, which is still the darling of US paleo-military conservatives.
I instantly framed this as four 9-11s that Iran had endured, yet it was an historical non-event in the West. At VT we are kind of big on victims having a voice, and their families. Yes we have 9-11 victims in the US who were paid huge sums for their losses in contrast to the Iranian victims. And no investigation was needed to learn who was responsible.
We never heard from the 911 victims’ families despite all the material we have published, and at great risk. We have not had a single call, or any interest shown by them at all. They have moved on, but we republish our 9-11 material every year, because we know Google has been breaking the links to our older stories.
VT will always support the Association of Defending Victims of Terrorism, which by the way, is not just for Iranian victims but for terror victims all over the world. I doubt the 911 American families know anything about them, and maybe do not even care.
We care. We want it stopped. We want those guilty to be punished, no matter how old or feeble they are. Why? Well, Glenn Kirschner now owns the most obvious reason, ‘Because Justice Matters … Jim W. Dean ]

Seventy two years have passed since the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a charter in the protection of human dignity and a milestone in the protection of human freedom, dignity and human rights.
Until now, many efforts have been made to achieve the goals mentioned in this Declaration by the United Nations, governments, human rights activists, and anyone concerned with the prevention of human self-destruction.
Today, 72 years after the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10, 1948, the international community is once again looking to the future with fear and hope; fear of war and crime, threats and terror; and the hope for a future in which the protection of human rights is not an excuse to achieve illegitimate aspirations, but a current reality in the world.
ADToday the people of the world hope to have a world in which the world without terror is no longer a slogan and no human being fall victim to injustice, extravagance, racism, war, violence and terrorism.
World Human Rights Day is an opportunity to renew our covenant with human rights activists around the world and to express our condolences to the true defenders of human rights from Asia to Africa and from Europe to the United States, who sacrificed their lives and health and left home and were persistent on the foundations of the human rights and gave an objective guarantee of its stability.
Victims of terrorism are the greatest examples of human rights violations in contemporary history. The plight of a large number of victims in various aspects shows the depth of the tragedy, so that this case of crime against humanity is getting heavier every day with darker pages, to the point that it has shocked a world.
Although today the dominant powerful states by using the evil entity called the terrorist organization are not adhered to any human principles and are committed to destruction of all human achievements in the foundations of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
But we must know that, on the contrary, there are free human beings who cry out for the victims of war, oppression, violence and terror, and are persistent, sympathetic and united in achieving the humanitarian goals set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The Association for Defending Victims of Terrorism, while renewing the treaty with the principles set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, declares that the human rights of the victims of terrorism are the most important example of human rights violations in the world, demanding the special attention of the United Nations and the states as a common suffering.
