Since four years ago when Takfiri terrorists, backed up and preplanned by the West, stepped on the lands of Southwestern Asia and launched their violence, Iranians and the Islamic Republic officials were reminded of the early years of the Revolution. Islamic Republic of Iran, which had to face a big threat called terrorism immediately after its emergence, had received many strikes from this ominous phenomenon during these years. Despite the terrorists’ and their leaders’ illusions, this nation and country become more and more active and lively every day. High-ranked officials and large groups of innocent people all have fallen victims to these terrorist activities.
The interesting point here is the resemblance that lies between the activities of Takfiri terrorists and those terrorists who were active in Iran. One of the reasons of this similarity is related to the main stream of terrorism which is at work in the globe, originating from those Western countries that have a claim to human rights. In the early years of the Islamic Republic of Iran when the so-called world powers like America and the UK attempted to dismantle this regime, they nurtured terrorism as a means against the Republic.
Today, we hear the Western and European countries having confessed their roles in planning and constituting Takfiri terrorist groups from a long time ago. They have set various training courses for the leaders of these groups for conducting terrorist activities in the region. For instance, you can refer to the memoir of Hillary Clinton, the former US Secretary of State, in a book titled “Hard Choices”.
Here there is an attempt to pinpoint the similarities between terrorist activities of the present Takfiri groups (at the present) with the terrorists who were active at the early years of the Islamic Republic of Iran. No doubt, there are instances of these violent activities the same as those which were active in Iran. But the objective here is to draw a comparison with the terrorist activities of the early years of Islamic Republic of Iran.

These instances show only part of the resemblances of terrorist activities of the terrorist groups. Such operations as direct terror with weapon, brutal torturing, bombings, etc. are some of these activities. In years not so long back, different terrorist groups also such as Jundollah and Jaish al-Adl assassinated people in Islamic Republic of Iran.
These similarities may lead to the conclusion that the thought line of these terrorist groups whether in Iran, Iraq, Syria, etc. has been drawn by the same hand, and that is the West headed by America and colonizing countries. The same countries that have a claim to human rights but directly (in Afghanistan, Pakistan, …) or indirectly (in Iraq, Syria, …) murder numberless of innocent people all over the world. It is at this point that our Great Imam, displays the line of thought of such groups in Iran quite well and states, “They say they are for the nation… Iran’s nation is America.” And the same point has been expressed by our Supreme Leader, “I wonder how Americans do not feel shame when they talk of human rights. Anybody can claim to support human rights but the Americans should not do so for all the disgrace they have done to human rights. Most probably people are not aware of the eighty or ninety cases out of the hundred movements they have made against human rights. Even those ten or twenty cases which they know themselves would become a thick black book.”
In fact, it is America and its allies who are leading all terrorist groups of the world and have turned to killing innocent people, and call countries like Islamic Republic of Iran, which themselves are victims of terror, as terrorists.
