Iran Pisses Off Canada
"The presence of Mr. Mortazavi in Iran's delegation demonstrates the government of Iran's complete contempt for internationally recognized principles of human rights,"
"The government of Canada expresses its disgust at the fact that Iran would choose to include such a person in its delegation to a new U.N. body intended to promote the highest standards of respect for human rights."
Seems two official investigations have have found that Mortazavi ordered the arrest of the Canadian photographer, Zahra Kazemi, and then falsified documents to cover up his involvement. She later died in detention in Iran.

You really have to wonder who's running things over in Iran right now, a bunch of monkeys with typewriters? I think even most Canadians will agree that Canada is usually fairly slow to anger or take offense to anything. If Iran can even piss off Canada, you'd almost think they were trying to alienate the rest of the world on purpose. Oh well, maybe Iran'll piss off enough people that someone besides the US, UK, and Canada will actually step up to the plate.
