An Iranian politician has a few choice words to say about Denmark, the Danish prime minister, and human rights. Many thanks to Anne-Kit of Perth, Australia for translating the article and the video, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Iranian politician: Copenhagen will have Muslim majority by 2025
29 June 2010
Iranian politician calls Lars Løkke [Danish Prime Minister] ‘stupid’ and ‘anti-Muslim’ and predicts that Copenhagen will end up with Muslim majority.
Iran’s UN delegate in Human Rights affairs, Mohammad J. Larijani, gave an interview on Iranian State TV 15th June, here translated by a resident Iranian.
“Larijani (Iran’s Human Rights delegate) says that Denmark’s Prime Minister is an idiot and is anti-Muslim. He says that by 2025 Copenhagen will be the first European city with a majority of Muslim citizens. What do you think?” writes ‘aabbddoouullaahh’, who uploaded this video to YouTube.
The video is an excerpt from a several hours long interview which Mohammad J. Larijani gave to Iranian State TV, and was translated by an Iranian living in Denmark. The statements about Denmark are at the end of the video.
They don’t understand our punishment of whipping

At a UN Human Rights Conference in Geneva on 15th February, Mohammad J. Larijani defended Iran against accusations of breaches of human rights. In the interview on Iranian TV he explains that the West does not understand the punishment of whipping and therefore accuses Iran [of breaching human rights]. The UN does not agree; official figures from the Tehran regime state that 47 people have died during demonstrations, and that more than 5000 critics of the regime are in prison.
Mohammad Larijani also took the opportunity to repeat the allegation that the much-publicised killing of Neda Agha Soltan, who was shot 20th June last year, was carried out by “foreign powers”.
