Rouhani: ISIL, Terrorism Sponsors Example of Arrogance
Iranian President Hasan Rouhani said that ISIL terrorist group and its sponsors are prime examples of arrogance and dishonesty in the new world.
During a visit to Iranian martyrs’ families on Thursday, Rouhani praised their sacrifices, stressing that the country’s dignity and independence are the results of martyrs and veterans’ devotion.
He also commemorated the martyrdom of Mohsen Hojajji, a member of the Iranian advisory support team in Syria who was taken captive by ISIL near the Iraqi border last week and beheaded two days later, saying that his self-sacrifice was a source of honor for the nation.
‘If there were not such devotions, not only Iraq and Syria but also Iran itself would be damaged by Takfiiri terrorists,’ he said.
“If Takfiri terrorists had managed to take the helm of Iraq and Syria, nothing would have remained of Islam’s honor and prestige,” the Iranian president added.
“Daesh” and sponsors of terrorism are representative examples of dogmatism and hypocrisy who have no real faith in Islam, Rouhani said, referring to ISIL.
