The Price of Indifference - Bob Feferman

Following the revelations of the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime on Syrian civilians in 2013, President Obama told the world, “When dictators commit atrocities, they depend upon the world to look the other way until those horrifying pictures fade from memory.”

With the implementation of the JCPOA, the international community will indeed look the other way, even as the gruesome pictures continue to come out of Syria.

As major multinational companies now line up to return to business-as-usual with Iran, we must remind them of this fact: Bashar al-Assad continues to murder his own citizens with the direct support of Iran. And the pictures of the dead body of Aylan Kurdi, and the millions of refugees fleeing Syria, should serve as an indictment of the world’s indifference to Iran’s responsibility for crimes against humanity.
