Iran claims United States and Saudi Arabia are Supporting Islamic Extremism

After a June 7th 2017 terrorist attack in Tehran Iran, the government of Iran came out to blame the United States and Saudi Arabia for supporting terrorism. President Trump expressed grief but immediately after said “We underscore that States that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote.” He said this statement despite the fact that Iran has never attacked another country since 1798.  The United States and Saudi Arabia on the other hand are a different story.

We know 15 out of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were Saudi Arabian. There are many other attacks linked to Saudi Arabia around the world. The United States’ links to terrorism go back decades. We know the US funded the Muhjahadeen which later turned into Al Qaeda. Even Hillary Clinton admitted this. Clinton’s emails also show that countries (Saudi Arabia and Qatar) we supply with weapons fund ISIS. The US has a long history of funding opposition groups in countries where we want regime change but then turning a blind eye to the consequences of our funding. The fall of Libya resulted in a power vacuum that was filled by extremist groups and now the same threatens to happen to Syria.
