Those international coalitions that claim to be fighting against terrorists are not trustworthy in any way because these destructive forces – particularly America – are the ones that stand behind the scenes of creating and supporting terrorists such as DAESH (ISIS). The outright enemies of Islam and the enemies that show enmity in the name of Islam are the two blades of the same pair of scissors. In the face of such dangerous enemies, Islamic countries should safeguard their own identity and interests by increasing their cooperation. Pinning one’s hopes on the west’s and America’s support and assistance in fighting against terrorist such as DAESH and Boko Haram is a wrong course of action. According to precise information that we have, the Americans and some reactionary governments in the region are directly helping DAESH. ~Ayatollah Khamenei, 11/23/2015
