Iran Claims America Is Responsible For Islamic State

( Right on cue, the terrorism-supporting state of Iran is perpetuating yet more anti-America conspiracy theories, seemingly in the hope that it may push Democrat President Joe Biden to ease the sanctions President Donald Trump placed on the country.

Iranian Chief Justice Ebrahim Raeisi made the bonkers claim on Wednesday that the United States government helped the Islamic State recover and grow in Syria, leading Islamic extremists into countries like Iran. Raeisi also claimed that only his country, and Shiite-run Iraq, stand opposed to the Islamic State’s extremism.

After President Donald Trump virtually annihilated the radical Islamic group within only a couple of years, it’s a claim that doesn’t hold much water.

“The U.S. claimed that it seeks to fight Daesh [IS] and formed a coalition for this, but we have witnessed the strengthening of Daesh in terms of weapons, logistics, intelligence, and other aspects,” Raeisi claimed during a meeting with President Barham Salih of Iraq.

“While Iraq, Syria, Iran and regional countries are working together to eliminate the remnants of Daesh, the Americans do nothing but relocate the Daesh terrorists in the region,” he added.

And if you for a moment thought that they might have a fair point to make about the way America conducts business overseas…he then went on to claim that General Qasem Soleimani was a hero.


Soleimaini, as well as Iraqi terrorist militia leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, were described as “heroes of the fight against terrorism.” Raeisi said that Soleimani was “martyred” when the United States, under President Donald Trump’s leadership, assassinated the terrorist leader in January 2020.

President Donald Trump once described Soleimani as the “number-one terrorist anywhere in the world.” He said that under his leadership, Iran’s Quds Force “targeted, injured, and murdered hundreds of American civilians and servicemen” over 20 years.”

Soleimani was assassinated as he arrived at Baghdad International Airport on a flight from Syria. As he left the airport with Iraqi officials, the convoy was hit by missiles from an American drone.

The latest comments from Raeisi do not constitute the first time that Iran has accused the United States of not taking action against ISIS. The country has repeatedly made the claim, despite the damage done to the Islamic State during President Trump’s administration.

President Joe Biden indicated this month that he would like the United States to re-join the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal.
