Massacre of Copts: now, whoever funds these jihadists must be made to beg for pardon - Hassan Rohani, Iran President

The Islamic Republic of Iran “strongly condemns” the “inhuman and savage" murder of the 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya by jihadists affiliated with the so-called Islamic State (IS). The outrage and disgust of the entire Iranian nation for the massacre documented by the video shown on jihadist web sites, was voiced by the President, Mr Hassan Rohani, speaking on 17th February during a meeting convoked in Teheran by the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution. 
            In his address, the Iranian leader expressed his sympathy with the families of the victims and added forceful remarks regarding the responsibility of those who support and fund jihadist groups and such bloodthirsty ferocity. "Regrettably - President Rohani said – these acts are perpetrated in the name of Islam and Muslims, but the inhuman terroristic deeds committed by these killers are contrary to Islam”.

            Iran’s Foreign Ministry had already condemned the massacre on Monday, stressing the need for vigilance and united action against terrorist strategies and factors which feed extremism. Also the Iranian legislature made a statement condemning the brutal killing in Libya, “the US and western governments and the regional sheikhdoms … which have created and strengthened the killer group should account for such a genocide”, read the statement issued by the cleric members of Teheran’s parliamentary assembly insisting that “international human rights organizations must launch an investigation with regard to those governments which have played a role in the creation of these terrorists” and then take proper action against them.
