When Javad Zarif responds to questions about Iran’s human rights abuses by saying “Iran has an independent judiciary”, this is what he’s referring to:
Iran’s Supreme Leader has appointed Ebrahim Raeesi to head the country’s judiciary. Why is that a bad idea? He was involved in mass executions of thousands of political prisoners to list just one of the many reasons. Karim Sadjadpour

With the latter it is sheer Will which manifests itself, and which in the end destroys itself. In the case of the former it is a vital emanation from a being at peace with himself and the world, and consequently irresistible.
We note Javad Zarif’s resignation. We’ll see if it sticks. Either way, he and Hassan Rouhani are just front men for a corrupt religious mafia. We know Ali khamenei makes all final decisions. Our policy is unchanged—the regime must behave like a normal country and respect its people.Pompeo, the U.S. Secretary of State
An interesting rhetorical shift has occurred on the western left. People's uprisings against authoritarian regimes used to be a good thing. They used to be called revolutions. Now they get defined as "regime change", and even solidarity or humanitarian aid is cast as evil.Idrees Ahmad
Once again, dear Javad Zarif, could you please, as a human rights prof, answer why the mother of labor activist Ismaeil_Bakhshi must be punished because of her son's activities.
