Tehran (IP)- Nasser Kanaani, the spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry, took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to criticize a U.S. court's decision to halt anti-Israel protests by University of California students.

Iran Press/Iran news: Kanaani argued that the court's action represents a discrepancy between the U.S.'s stated principles and its actual practices regarding freedom of speech and opinion.

Student Union Officials Challenge Court's Jurisdiction

In his post, Kanaani quoted University of California Student Union officials who contend that the court lacks the authority to stop the forced strike in support of Palestine by university students and staff. This highlights the ongoing debate over the limits of free speech and the right to protest on college campuses.

Concerns Over Double Standards

Kanaani's criticism underscores double standards in the U.S. when it comes to freedom of expression. By highlighting this specific case, he aims to draw attention to hypocrisy in the U.S.'s commitment to protecting free speech, particularly when it comes to issues related to Israel and Palestine.
