In a televised news conference on Saturday, Iran’s president Sheikh Hassan Rouhani told over 200 lranian and foreign reporters that Iraqi nation is capable of defending itself against the foreign-funded the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Levant” (ISIL or ‘Daesh’ in Arabic).
“If Baghdad asks for help, Tehran will support its neighbor based on the international rules and regulations,” said Rouhani. “However, there has been no such request for assistance by Iraqi government of al-Maliki,” he added.
On Saturday, Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) condemned terrorist attacks of the Daesh group on Iraq, saying that Iraqis will soon annihilate group. Salehi said that the group was created by the world arrogant powers and Zionists. Salehi also said they will soon receive a devastating blow from Daesh terrorists.
Iraq’s Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ali al-Sistani called Iraqis on Friday to take up arms against ISIL terrorists marching on Baghdad, as thousands volunteered to bolster the capital’s defenses.
“Citizens who are able to bear arms and fight terrorists, defending their country and their people and their holy places, should volunteer and join the security forces to achieve this holy purpose. He who sacrifices for the cause of defending his country and his family and his honor will be a martyr,” Sistani’s representative announced on his behalf during the main weekly prayers in the Shiite shrine city of Karbala.
Turkey, which allowed ISIL and other anti-Assad terrorist groups to be trained by NATO, Israelis, French and American on its territory – became the first victim of its own terrorism. The ISIL (Wahhabi Sunni) fighters stormed Turkish consulate in Mosul and kidnapped Consul Öztürk Yılmaz. Turkey’s opposition leader Devlet Bahçeli (MHP) has urged prime minister Erdogan to send military aid to protect Iraqi Turkmen.
In response to pro-Israel lawmakers’ demand for a “military option” in Iraq, Barack Obama said on Friday that his administration will not get involved in Iraq’s security.
“We’re not going to allow ourselves to be dragged back into a situation in which, while we’re there we’re keeping a lid on things, and after enormous sacrifices by us, after we’re not there, people start acting in ways that are not conducive to the long-term stability and prosperity of the country,” Obama said from the South Lawn of the White House.
On June 13, Bangkok-based geopolitical analyst and writer Tony Cartalucci in an article, entitled NATO’s Terror Hordes in Iraq a Pretext for Syria Invasion has cleared some of the fog surrounding the evildoers behind the so-called “ISIL Islamists”.
“In actuality, ISIS is the product of a joint NATO-GCC conspiracy stretching back as far as 2007 where US-Saudi policymakers sought to ignite a region-wide sectarian war to purge the Middle East of Iran’s arch of influence stretching from its borders, across Syria and Iraq, and as far west as Lebanon and the coast of the Mediterranean. ISIS has been harbored, trained, armed, and extensively funded by a coalition of NATO and Persian Gulf states within Turkey’s (NATO territory) borders and has launched invasions into northern Syria with, at times, both Turkish artillery and air cover,” says Cartalucci.
“The alleged territorial holdings of ISIS cross over both Syrian and Iraqi borders meaning that any campaign to eradicate them from Iraqi territory can easily spill over into Syria’s borders. And that is exactly the point. With ISIS having ravaged Mosul, Iraq near the Turkish border and moving south in a terror blitzkrieg now threatening the Iraqi capital of Baghdad itself, the Iraqi government is allegedly considering calling for US and/or NATO assistance to break the terror wave,” adds Cartalucci.
The Jewish-controlled Western media is capitalizing on ISIS’ notorious brutality, including mass beheadings and hundreds of thousands of civilians fleeing before them, is part of anti-Muslim campaign to pave the way for the so-called “humanitarian intervention” in both Syria and Iraq to further Balkanize the Middle East for the evil interests of Israel.
