The Iranian Resistance’s President-elect Maryam Rajavi strongly condemned the cowardly, terrorist attack on a church in northern France and the barbaric murder of its elderly priest. She described this heinous atrocity as being in diametric contrast to the teachings of all major religions and humane values.
Maryam Rajavi sent her condolences to the people, government and Church of France, reiterating that this atrocious crime is a reminder of the crimes of the clerical regime over the past 37 years against the people of Iran, their Christian and Sunni religious leaders and even the Shiite clergy who did not bow down to the Iranian regime.
She added: The people of Iran who have been engaged in a fierce battle with the Godfather of Daesh (ISIS/ISIL) for the past 37 years, are united in the grief of and feel enormous solidarity with the people of France in these truly painful moments.
