Iran has accused the United States of sponsoring some of the world’s most barbaric terror groups, the country’s semi-official state news agency Fars reported on Tuesday. 

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham alleged that the US, “accompanied by different countries like Saudi Arabia and others, … created Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, Jabhat al-Nusra, ISIS and other terrorist groups and have the record of the largest support for terrorism.”

Afkham called it “ironic” for the US and its allies to form anti-terror coalitions, yet “continue their financial and logistical support for the terrorist groups.”

She also said that America’s regional military intervention, “dual policies” and “instrumental use of terrorist groups” were the real causes of the current crisis in Syria.

Afkham also claimed that Iran is “serious and determined to fight terrorism,” because it is a victim of terrorism, according to Fars.

Afkham’s comments were reported as a response to US State Department spokesman John Kirby’s having referred to Iran’s activities in Syria, particularly its sponsorship of Hezbollah and backing of the Assad regime, as “destabilizing” and “unhelpful.”

Iran itself has been designated by the US State Department as a State Sponsor of Terrorism since 1984.

    That is why in revelation Obama is depicted as the rider on the white horse, who comes in peace only ro pave the way for the rider of the red horse…who creates mayhem and destruction. Daniel refers to Obama as the obamanation of desolation who honors a foreign God and the war machine. If he cannot force the will of Islam on America, by destroying those with guns and bibles, he must according to the Koran, destroy America….and he does not care who does it. He can push all the right buttons and tick Russia and China off to the point they will do it. It does not matter to him who does it…just that it is done. His reward…probably 70,000 virgins in heaven with none of them looking like Michelle. John McCain and Lindsey damned can’t wrap their pea brains around the fact that they have a caliphate minded President who’s objective is to destroy the great Satan. Why? Because they do not understand Prophesy and Obama cut his teeth on it at Indonisian masques.
