TEHRAN, Aug., 16, 2014 (FNA)- Vice-Speaker of the Iranian Parliament Mohammad Hassan Aboutorabifard strongly condemned the crimes committed by the Takfiri terrorist groups in the regional countries, and said the arrogant powers are the main supporters of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group.
"The global arrogance uses the ISIL Takfiri and terrorist groups to tarnish the image of Islam," Aboutorabifard said.
He noted that the main job of the Takfiri terrorist groups is to defame Islam and Muslims.
On Wednesday, Chairman of Irans Expediency Council Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani warned the world against the threat of the ISIL terrorists as a fanatic and autocrat group.
"The ISIL terrorist group is an ignorant and fanatic current that is headed by the most autocratic people," Rafsanjani said, addressing a meeting of the Iranian youth active in political and cultural fields.
He noted that the ISIL does not know anything about Islam and attributes its savage acts to Islam merely to tarnish the image of Islam and make the people of the world afraid of this divine religion.
Rafsanjani pointed to the critical conditions in Iraq, Yemen, Egypt, Libya, Lebanon and Afghanistan, and said, "The main problem of these countries is lack of unity and solidarity and if they did not face sectarian and religious differences a small terrorist group could never occupy their different regions and commit crimes against their people."
The Chairman of Irans Expediency Council also strongly criticized the western media for using the term Islamic State instead of the ISIL.
In June, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined complexity of the plots hatched by the enemies who use any means, even Islamic appearance, to create rift among various sects in Islamic societies.
Addressing a group of Quran reciters, the Leader of Irans Islamic Revolution said that "the enemies intelligence apparatus" plays a role in fueling civil conflicts in a number of Islamic communities, including Iraq.
Praising the deep level of insight of the Islamic Ummah, Ayatollah Khamenei underscored, "The enemies of Islam are afraid of this fact and try to confront Islam in the name of Islam and under the cover of Islam".
Ayatollah Khamenei also highlighted the difference between American Islam and true Islam.
"The American Islam, despite having Islamic appearance and name, complies with despotism and Zionism... and totally serves the goals of despotism and the US," stated the Leader.
Iran has always attached crucial importance to paving the way for the enhancement of interaction and cooperation among Muslim nations in a bid to strengthen Muslim unity throughout the world.
