Putting the onus on others is the special knack the mullahs ruling Iran have. The Iranian people though are well familiar with these deceptions.
The mullahs have executed 120,000 political dissidents, but to escape accountability, they point the finger at the opposition and place the blame on the opposition itself.
Time and again they have massacred members of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the main opposition to the Iranian government, through their proxy government in Iraq. However, they claim that the massacres have been internal purges within the opposition.
When torture inside the prisons in Iran was infamously disclosed, the founder of the regime Khomeini said that the PMOI members are torturing themselves.
On Thursday, January 8, mullahs repeated this same deceptive knack with France. They stated that France which is mourning for the loss of lives of its journalists is itself responsible for this tragedy.
The state-run Tasnim News Agency, affiliated with the terrorist Quds Force, wrote in a commentary entitled “Attack in Paris consequence of France playing with fire in Syria”:
“…continuous French support for armed Takfiri groups in France from the onset of the crisis in Syria brought along warnings by that country’s security officials who cautioned about the consequence of this policy and its ensuing perils. Ultimately, what they were predicting was switched on in the attack on the office of Charlie Hebdo weekly.”
Tasnim News Agency explained:
“This attack occurred while from the onset of the war in Syria, France began playing with fire and turned into a protective umbrella for the countries that supported armed groups in Syria. It presented several draft resolutions for military operations in Syria similar to the attacks on Libya, but Russia and China, the two big allies of Syria, time and again used their veto power to frustrate the French measures to interfere.”
In another section of this commentary, the news agency claims the French politicians were receiving bribes and supporting fundamentalist terrorists:
“At that time, the French newspapers published reports about the perils of forming a coalition with Qatar. Furthermore, several books on the role of Qatar in supporting Takfiri terrorism was published which explained how the leaders and the emirs of Doha had bought off the French politicians and elite and tried to lure France into supporting the war against Syria and the overthrow of Bashar Assad.”
“The number of French nationals who went to Syria was announced to be around 800 and most of them were affiliated with the Takfiri groups that are spread all over France and are well known to the security institutions. They knew that these people enjoyed the support of the French officials and they established societies that conducted activities in their name and under their cover. They invested in restaurants and communications and thus their activities were conducted with the knowledge and acquiescence of the French officials.”
“One can see thousands of members of these groups in Afghan clothing in famous and large districts of France. The French security society considers this state as a result of the money that Qatar poured into the pockets of the French elite at various ranks.”
“In any case, on Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. local time, what the French security institutions had predicated came true and unfolded in Paris.”
The most audacious part of the commentary comes later though, where it threatens France. The news agency wrote:
“Thus, in the present conditions we can state that the trend of developments in France is moving in the direction of a season of terrorist operations that was switched on by the attack on Charlie Hebdo weekly, a magazine that since several years ago had been publishing insulting caricatures against Muslims. It is evident that the Takfiri groups are trying to play with the feelings of Muslims and lure them into the battle field which they have ignited.”
“However, the attack that killed 12 and injured 40 is the result of innumerable and ill-assessed interventions by France in the developments in Syria with the French security officials most cognizant that to preserve security in various cities, a change in the French policy with regard to Syria is essential.”
It should be reminded that in the afternoon of January 7, the mullahs dishonestly condemned the terrorist crime in Charlie Hebdo weekly. But in less than 12 hours, in Tasnism News Agency commentary, playing the role of terrorists’ spokesperson in France, they threatened that further attacks are on the way.
Is this threat not adequate enough to recognize the source of terrorism and fundamentalism in our world today?
