Ramadan toll shows Islamic State in pitched recruiting race

Ramadan toll shows Islamic State in pitched recruiting race

President Donald Trump is fond of using tweeter to share his opinions but he is yet to reply to Khamenei's tweets.

Tehran also blamed Saudi Arabia for a terrorist attack in the city last week during which 17 people were killed.

Trump commented that one reaps what it sows.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks, and Iranian social media were flooded with expressions of grief and worry, denunciations of the attackers' barbarism, and howls of defiance: the mood music of another pitiless jihadi attack.

"You [the United States] and your agents are the source of instability in the Middle East. who created Islamic State?"

More than two dozen people, including Iran's cultural attaché to Beirut, were killed and at least 150 others injured in that year when two explosions struck near the Iranian diplomatic premises in the south of the Lebanese capital. Khamenei said Iran had no intention of normalizing ties with the United States.




In another development, the Iranian Intelligence Minister has assured members of the parliament that there is no longer a single active terrorist cell in the country.

"Qatar is a partner of the United Kingdom in the fight against terrorism but they urgently need to do more to address support for extremist groups, building on the steps they have already taken", Johnson said. Sending a tough message to Tehran shortly after pragmatist Hassan Rouhani was re-elected president, Trump urged Arab leaders to unite to defeat militants, and said Iran had for decades "fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and terrors".

Khamenei said Iran had no intention of normalizing ties with the United States. Last Wednesday, gunmen and suicide bombers attacked the Iranian parliament in Tehran and the Mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Revolution.

Both Qatar and Saudi Arabia are major USA allies, and have close ties to European powers.

ISIS follows Wahhabism, an extremely intolerant and violent pseudo-ideology that is preached by government-sanctioned clerics in Saudi Arabia.

Baluchistan province is home to a Sunni population who form a minority in majority Shia Iran. Iran repeated accusations that Saudi Arabia funds Islamist militants, including Islamic State.
