A senior Iranian cleric fulminates against global inaction vis-à-vis Takfiri crimes, saying Western support is perpetuating terrorism and extremism in the Middle East.

“If it weren’t for the financial, logistical and arms support of certain Western countries and their puppet governments in the region, the ISIL [Takfiri militants] and similar terrorist groups wouldn’t be able to survive and continue their enormous crimes and bloodshed,” said Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi in a letter to Pope Francis, the head of the Roman Catholic Church.

The Iranian cleric added that many religious and political leaders the world over have not only chosen to remain tight-lipped in the face of Takfiri terrorist acts, but some of them have also voiced support for the terrorists’ crimes, said the top religious figure.

Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi further welcomed a recent letter by Pope Francis to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon over the plight of Christian minorities amid the ISIL terror operations in Iraq.

In the letter to Ban earlier this month, Pope Francis called on the United Nations to take necessary actions to stop the violence against Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq.

The senior Iranian clergyman strongly censured the crimes perpetrated at the hands of ISIL Takfiris against all religious groups in Iraq, calling on the Christian leader to adopt a “more transparent” position on such brutalities committed against people in Muslim countries regardless of their faith.
Having taken control of parts of Syria,the ISIL terrorist group sent its militants into neighboring Iraq in early June and quickly seized large swathes of the territory there.

The foreign-backed Takfiri militant group has terrorized various communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Izadi Kurds and others in their advances in Iraq.
