Iran Blames U.S., Israel For Paris Attacks

YERUSHALAYIM -

Iran has added its voice to conspiracy theorists who accuse the United States and Israel of being behind the terrorist attacks last week in Paris.

Brig. Gen. Mohammad Reza Naqdi, head of Iran’s Basij paramilitary force, made the accusation on Wednesday, as reported by the semi official Fars News Agency, Arutz Sheva said.

“If we write the word Israel instead of ISIS, the behind the scenes of the recent events in France will come into light,” Naqdi said, asserting that they have created Islamic State to serve their interests in the Middle East.

“Such events should happen in Europe in order for the U.S. and its hirelings to be able to justify their presence in the region and escape from criticisms.”
