Anti Fascism

More Conspiracism

Among the many reactions by newspaper throughout the Middle East to Thursday’s terrorist murders in London, Iran’s Jomhuri-ye Eslami newspaper sticks out:

Everyone knows about the terrorist al-Qaeda group. And there is no doubt that this group is controlled by America. America uses al-Qaeda everywhere and at any time to further its own aims – even for manipulating the minds of the British people in an attempt to convince them to abandon their opposition to the UK government’s support for America. It would appear that the Zionists and American intelligence organisations are behind the London blasts.

Well, it stands to reason. Al Qaeda’s brand of salafism regards Shi’ites as a bunch of apostates and fire worshipers worthy of death. They’re murdering Shiite clerics, politicians, and civilians in Iraq. So it only stands to reason that the US must be behind them.

Gene adds: By contrast, the editor of the London-based Arabic-language newspaper Al-Sharq Al-Awsat denounces British Muslims who tolerate jihadi fund-raisers disguised as charities.
