Tehran’s Provisional Friday Prayers leader Ayatollah Seyed Ahmad Khatami deplored the massacre of innocent people by Takfiri groups in Iraq, and said the terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) enjoy the support of the western powers.
Addressing the western states during his Friday Prayers sermon on Tehran University campus, Ayatollah Khatami said, “The support given by you to the Takfiri terrorists will backfire on you and you will see the repercussions soon.”
He said that the people of the world will soon get rid of the ISIL and nothing will remain from the terrorist group God willingly.
Earlier this week, Chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi took the US responsible for the formation of the ISIL and other terrorist Takfiri groups in the region.
“No doubt the Americans should be blamed for the creation of the ISIL and Takfiri terrorists and they have announced many times that they are supplying these people with training and weapons,” Boroujerdi said, addressing a forum of Students’ Islamic Association in Tehran on Monday.
“The Americans do not care for the beheading of thousands of people who are killed defenselessly (by the ISIL) and this is a crime which will be recorded in the history of humanity,” he added.
Boroujerdi predicted that the ISIL which is now committing crimes in a number of Arab states will certainly be annihilated soon.
