Tehran, June 12, IRNA - An English-language newspaper on Thursday commenting on the recent crisis in Iraq said that, that country is in dire need of unity, while regional and international supporters of extremism and terrorism need to wake up before it is too late.

Terrorists mobilized by the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Lavant (ISIL) have taken control of the Iraqi city of Tikrit and freed hundreds of prisoners on Wednesday, a day after they seized a swathe of the north, including the second-largest city Mosul, and forced half a million people to leave their homes, noted ˈIran Dailyˈ in its Opinion column.

Three main groups play a direct role in Iraq today, which will definitely leave their impacts on the future of that country, while the United States and Israel are operating behind the scenes to control developments in Iraq.

The first group is the Iraqi government, mainly its executive branch. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maleki has harnessed all the Iraqi energy he could muster to save the country from disintegration.

The second group comprises opposition forces, some of whom are either in the legislative or other organs. These forces, through their wrong stances, at times intentionally or perhaps unintentionally, add fuel to the fire of extremism in their country.

The third group includes the extremist, terrorist forces who blindly kill innocent people and pursue a dangerous agenda, the outcome of whose activities is tarnishing the image of Islam and Muslims.

The extremists are the half-brothers of Al-Qaeda and Taliban in their policies and behaviors. There is no doubt today that both Al-Qaeda and Taliban were the brainchild of Mossad and CIA. The way ISIL is treating Iraqi and Syrian citizens shows that they are ideologically linked to Mossad and CIA on the one hand and financially to the coffers of some Arab countries on the other, said the daily.

It is no surprise that the remnants of Iraq’s Ba’ath Party support the extremists, for they are very similar in nature.

What is amazing though is that some Iraqi officials are behaving in a manner that either facilitates ISIL’s inhuman atrocities or undermines the government’s campaign against extremism, the daily noted.

A few months ago, when Maliki was about to purge Al-Anbar from terrorist forces, 44 MPs resigned and forced the government to withdraw the army from that region. Unfortunately, the call for resignation came from senior MPs as well as some government officials, added the paper.

According to Iraqi official sources, one MP was involved in Al-Anbar terrorist attacks and according to judiciary documents, he was connected to an Arab state in the southern coast of Persian Gulf, which pumped huge petrodollars into the extremist groups. As a result of the provocations of this MP, Al-Anbar became a safe haven for terrorists. Such moves would definitely intensify religious schism and hatred in Iraq, stressed the daily.

The recent developments in Iraq show that some leaders of a specific community are committing the same mistake that the MPs of Al-Anbar committed.

The situation is very critical in Iraq today, but history bears testimony to the fact that the extremists and terrorists will not prevail. They will perish before they are able to establish any strong foothold in any part of Iraq.

The Sunnis and the Shias as well as the Arabs and the Kurds are expected to join hands to defeat these terrorists.

These developments may also have certain lessons for other regional states as well as the extra-territorial forces. Followers of any religion with any ethnic affiliation must join hands to clear Iraq from terrorism, extremism and violence, otherwise Iraq will turn into a breeding ground of terrorists and endanger the life of all Iraqis, including the supporters of these extremist, terrorist forces.

Regional countries, who are supporting terrorism and extremism through their oil wealth, must not forget that they will be the next target of the same terrorists they are supporting today.

The daily concluded by saying that the European and American supporters of extremist forces should realize that they are living in a glass palace. They are vulnerable to the attack of the serpents they are nurturing in their sleeves: 9/11 must not be kept out of sight.
