Arrogant Powers Root Cause of Terrorism


A senior Iranian cleric described the world’s arrogant powers, the US in particular, as the root cause of terrorism in the region and globally.

Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Movahedi Kermani, in his Friday prayer sermons in Tehran yesterday, underlined that the world is aware of the fact that terrorists activities are caused due to the training of terrorists by the US, Britain and the Zionists.

“Essentially, the root of war and insecurity in the region and in the world are hegemonic powers, the US at the top. They want the issue of Palestine to sink into oblivion so that Israel can breathe a sigh of relief.”

Ayatollah Movahedi Kermani added that their so-called anti-terrorism coalition is nothing but a lie because they, themselves, have created terrorism and support and spread it.

He said the arrogant powers turn political dispute in regional states into civil wars and send militants to countries like Iraq and Syria to provoke insecurity and fratricide.

The senior cleric expressed hope that the world will wake up and realize the threat posed by the US and that an uprising will be formed against arrogant powers.
