Iran - Oct 14

Ayatollah Khomeini said that the actions taken by the United States and its allies against ISIL are two-faced and advised Muslims to avoid any move that would promote sectarian strife. He claimed that they created al-Qaeda and ISIL to incite division and counter the Islamic Republic of Iran. Khomeini asserted that the enemies of Islam have always sought to create a wedge between Sunnis and Shias to deflect their attention. Perhaps this is a political move meant to defuse ideological support for ISIL. Source: Tehran Times
