“When you talk about humanity and talk about democracy, it is all a lie so long as this [plight] exists in the world. Europe and Tunisia always mouth off empty slogans – democracy, human rights, respect for people – and in front of their eyes is a graveyard, but they did not even do a thing—this is global falsehood.”
