Speaker: US, Britain founders of terrorism in region

Bushehr, Sept 4, IRNA – Britain and United States are founders of terrorism in Middle East region and this was the path they laid before mankind, as otherwise the Muslims are not terrorists, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said here Wednesday.

ˈThe Muslims have never been terrorists, and are not (terrorists today), and now in the 21st Century, we see that the same people who assassinated Raeis Ali Delwari, those creaturesˈ nature has not changed, and they continue their terrorist activities,ˈ said Larijani, addressing a commemoration service on martyrdom anniversary of Raeis Ali Delwari, a 19th Century Iranian anti-colonialist hero.

Delwariˈs demise anniversary was named the Day for Campaign against British Colonialism after the Islamic Revolution.

In addition to the Iraniansˈ anti-colonialist war against the British in the Persian Gulf in 19th Century, Larijani who is meanwhile a member of the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) referred to the Vietnam and Cuba wars in the 20th Century, the Constitutional Revolution in Iran, which was defeated in the course of the coup against Dr. Mosaddeqˈs Government, the victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran, and the war imposed against Iran by the former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussain.

ˈThe big world powersˈ 20th Century record is very dark,ˈ he said referring to their support for big and small dictators here and there in the world, including in Iran, and plotting against this and that national popular government and every liberation movement around the globe.

He said that the big world powers that speak about the threat of terrorism and express concern about it today are the ones that erected the scarecrow of the lunatic ISIS in Syria and in Iraq, and then started screaming, which he said was ˈA big lie.ˈ

ˈHistory shows that the top terrorists in the world and in this region are the big powers and their grand masters in this business are the US and Britain,ˈ he said.

Larijani addressed the big world powers, saying, ˈTerrorism never bothers you as you are lying as the founders of terrorism in the region, one sample of which was assassination of Raeis Ali Delwari.ˈ

ˈYou laid the path of terrorism before the feet of the mankind, as otherwise the Muslims are neither terrorists, not have ever been terrorists, and today, too, the same creatures (big powers) have not been changed (essentially) and pursue their terrorist activities,ˈ he reiterated.

ˈThe recent regional developments are of the same kind, as they (the world powers) are opposed to the advancement of the Muslims, which is the reason why they keep initiating pretexts against the Islamic Iran with the passage of each new day,ˈ he said.

ˈThey dislike our economic growth and do not want the Iranian nation to stand on its own feet, while these pretexts are all aimed at keeping our nation busy,ˈ he said.
