Following the heinous terrorist attacks of the Takfīrī groups in Iran, in which a number of innocent people were killed, Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi issued the following statement:
In the Name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful
We strongly condemn the heinous terrorist attacks carried out in our country last Wednesday by the bloodthirsty Takfīrī beasts; the crimes committed by these atrocious people were so shocking that the entire world condemned them. We extend our most heartfelt condolences to the bereaved and pray for the quick recovery of the injured.
The history of mankind has never seen, in any of the past eras, any criminals more vicious, atrocious, and purposeless than the present time Takfīrī terrorists, including the Daesh terrorists.
They randomly kill innocent people using fire arms or they blow their explosive vests up in crowded places, killing large numbers of innocent people and go to hell themselves.
What purpose do they really achieve by killing innocent people randomly? Do they believe that by killing a number of people and demolishing a number of buildings they can gain control of countries? Do they intend to scare large numbers of people through their crimes? Or do they seek to take the revenge of the blood of their fellow terrorists, who have been killed on the battlefield, from innocent men, women, and children in the cities? What aim do they really pursue?
The best way to describe these terrorists is that they are a bunch of bloodthirsty maniacs who long to kill the innocent, and that this is the only aim they pursue.
Do they really assume that by carrying out such terrorist attacks they can intimidate a people, who has been subject to the most brutal war crimes during the eight-year war imposed on them by Iraq, and who, despite the unbearable conditions of that war, stood firm and defended their country with fortitude?
It is too simplistic to think that these were isolated terrorist attacks carried out by petty terrorist groups such as Daesh. These terrorists are indeed being supported by even greater criminals who have placed all their hopes in these Takfīrī terrorists and who support these atrocious beasts with all kinds of support including money and arms.
Without a doubt, our nation will be more determined in the fight against these brutal terrorists and will not rest until they are all obliterated from the face of the earth.
We have always been at the forefront of the fight against these terrorists and will remain so, even if we are accused by the US president as being a supporter of terrorists, merely because he wants to ingratiate himself with the Arab heads of state so as to quote “milk” them.
We are more than certain that they know they are lying and they only make such false allegations against those who truly fight terrorism, and at the same time trying hard to exonerate the real supporters of terrorists, just in order to make more dirty money.
We all need to be vigilant, and to j o i n hands in order to foil such evil plots.
