This is one of the few correct things you’ll hear coming out of this corrupt regime. ISIS was created to overturn Syria and Iran, yet be portrayed as a random uprising. This is also why ISIS hasn’t been destroyed yet, because they could’ve been eliminated yesterday if the Obama administration really wished it. Instead they make token strikes for public consumption which steers public opinion into believing something is actually being done.
Deputy chief of staff of armed forces says radical group working to further the interests of the ‘Zionist regime’
The deputy chief of staff of the Iranian Armed Forces said on Sunday that the radical Sunni Islamic State group is “US state-sponsored terrorism” aimed at defaming Islam on behalf of the “Zionist regime.”
Brigadier General Massoud Jazzayeri made the comments during a talk with military commanders and officials in Tehran, the Fars News Agency reported.
“ISIL [an acronym for the Islamic State group] is the product of the thoughts and acts of the US state-sponsored terrorism with the aim of defaming Islam and preventing people’s tendency in different societies and countries towards this religion,” Jazzayeri said of the jihadist group that has seized large areas of Syria and Iraq, where it brutally enforces an extreme interpretation of Islamic law.
The purpose of IS is the “implementation of plots to create a new Middle East,” Jazzayeri claimed, and also “the creation of desired changes in line with the illegitimate interests of the Zionist regime.”
