SNSC Secretary Ali Shamkhani said that “terrorism as well as overt and covert interferences of the Zionist regime in inflaming the territorial dispute among regional countries are pursued with the aim of destabilizing in the area as well as to enhance safety margin of the fake Israeli regime.” (The SNSC is Iran’s Supreme National Security Council.) He said this in connection with “Takfiri terrorism movements,” i.e., Sunni jihad groups such as the Islamic State and al-Qaeda.
The idea that the chaos and jihad that are engulfing the Middle East is all being orchestrated by Israel and its allies in order to enhance the safety of Israel could only have originated in the paranoid mind of an Islamic supremacist who believes that Jews are the worst enemies of the Muslims because the Qur’an tells him so (5:82). In reality, the instability of the region is a tremendous danger to Israel, and that fact, despite what is released for popular consumption, is almost certainly well known as well appreciated in Tehran.
“Terrorism aims to safeguard Zionists,” Iran’s Mehr News Agency, June 7, 2016 (thanks to Lookmann):
TEHRAN, Jun. 07 (MNA) – SNSC Secretary Ali Shamkhani said terrorism is being advocated to destabilize the regions in order to enhance security of the Zionist regime.
Armenian Minister of Foreign Affairs Edward Nalbandian met and talked with Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani in Tehran on Monday.
Pointing to historical and friendly ties between the two countries, Iran’s Shamkhani asserted “warm relations between Iran and Armenia have never been affected by third parties as the two sides have always followed the path of fulfilling mutual interests with sincere determination.”
The official appreciated Armenia’s clear and peaceful stance with regard to regional crises, particularly in condemning Takfiri terrorism movements as well as their advocates; “terrorism as well as overt and covert interferences of the Zionis [sic] regime in inflaming the territorial dispute among regional countries are pursued with the aim of destabilizing in the area as well as to enhance safety margin of the fake Israeli regime.”
