Fake democracy stems from Turkey-backed ISIL: Iran official

A senior Iranian judicial official has criticized Turkey’s support for the ISIL Takfiri militants and Salafi extremists, saying the democracy coming from the ISIL terrorist group is fake.

“…The West has tried to create a fake entity named the Salafi group which has no task but to kill people and commit [acts of] aggression,” Secretary of Iran’s High Council for Human Rights Mohammad Javad Larijani told state television.

He added that the West is horrified by the spread of Islam and the Islamic Revolution of Iran, saying, “The West has moved to form terrorist groups… such as Taliban, al-Qaeda and ISIL, to stem the spread [of Islam].”

Turkey has been a staunch supporter of the ISIL Takfiri militants who have been wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria, where they have seized large swathes of land. They have also committed heinous crimes including mass executions and beheadings of thousands of people in the areas under their control.

Turkey’s stance on the Syrian Kurdish city of Kobani has also drawn harsh criticism. The city of and its surroundings have been under attack since mid-September, with the ISIL militants capturing dozens of nearby Kurdish villages. The Kurdish military sources say Kurdish fighters are gaining more ground against the ISIL Takfiri terrorists in and around Kobani, adding they managed to force out the militants from most of the city’s areas.

Turkey continues to block any delivery of military, medical or humanitarian assistance into Kobani where the ISIL terrorists are feared to be aiming at massive bloodletting.

Analysts say Ankara plans to let the terrorists seize Kobani before sending tanks and troops to fight them in a bid to capture and possibly annex the Syrian territory.

Meanwhile, Press TV has learned that Washington has moved its base from Jordan to Turkey to train radical extremists who are fighting the Syrian government.
