TEHRAN, Jul 01, 2014 (FNA)- An Iranian Parliamentary official Tuesday condemned the recent terrorist acts carried out by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Iraq and Syria, and called for Muslims vigilance against Tel Avivs divisive plots to create rift among them and divide their countries into smaller and weaker nations.
Iranian Parliaments Director General for International Affairs Hossein Sheikholeslam said Israel and the Western states that are supporting the ISIL in Iraq are the same parties which back similar terrorist groups in neighboring Syria.
Sheikholeslam added that the ISIL supporters seek to pave the way for the Israeli regime to gain "permanent" dominance over Iraq by pushing the country towards fragmentation into three or even more smaller parts. "Supporters of these terrorist groups want to portray Iraqs parliamentary democracy as a failure because they consider this democracy as a factor for their destruction," he added.
On Friday, Irans President Hassan Rouhani called on the Muslim nations to keep vigilant against the plots hatched by the enemies to disunite and weaken them. "The flames of violence and extremism are flaring across the Muslim world, and ignorance and extremism have cleared the way for the realization of the longtime plot of the enemies of Islam in sowing discord and causing sectarian and tribal strife," President Rouhani said in a message.
His message was addressed to Muslim heads of state and governments in the run-up to the holy fasting month of Ramadan, which started in Islamic countries on Saturday or Sunday.
