USA torturing prisoners Nazi-style
London-based Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) has written to the British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, demanding that Britain disengage from the anti-human rights stance and processes taken by the USA. IHRC Chairman Massoud Shadjareh said in his letter that the presence of British citizens amongst these men presents an opportunity for Britain to take a stance in support of universal rights, by ensuring that not only is consular access granted to these men, but that the US respects international treaties and laws in their treatment of these men...The current actions of the US only further confirm in the eyes of many around the world that the standards it regularly criticizes other countries for flouting are of no consequence to them in their own actions.

IHRC noted that the pictures released today of men being shackled, gagged, blindfolded with taped over goggles, masked and forced to kneel are reminiscent of the treatment meted out in concentration camps. This is the type of action that Nazis would be proud of. It is particularly poignant as we approach Holocaust Remembrance Day that when we state ‘Never Again’ this should be all inclusive.
