Shocker: Iran blames West for rise of Islamic State by failing to protect the rights of Muslim immigrants.

BERLIN — Iran’s foreign minister has accused the West of fueling Islamic extremism by failing to protect the rights of Muslim immigrants.

Mohammad Javad Zarif told the Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Council on Monday that “a sizeable number” of those joining the Islamic State group and others were second-generation immigrants in western democracies.

He noted that some of those “beheading innocent civilians speak European languages with native accents” — a veiled reference to “Jihadi John,” who appeared in several IS propaganda videos showing the execution of the group’s prisoners.

“Jihadi John” was revealed last week to be Mohammed Emwazi, a young man raised in London.

Zarif also repeated his country’s previous claim that western efforts to promote human rights in the Mideast have destabilized existing regimes and benefited extremist groups.

    Iran is funding extremists groups so they should just STFU and stop funding terror if they really want to see less extremists.

    What they are really mad about is that ISIS is the wrong flavour of extremists.

    I agree with Iran the best thing we can do is ship these camel lovers back to the point of origin. If we deport them all then quarantine the area we will have eliminated terrorism. Then after that’s done I have no qualms about carpet bombing them until all traces are ashes.

    Well, if we didn’t have these “immigrants” it would eliminate a lot of terrorism problems.
    Remember, their mere presence makes us all less free.

    What is wrong with you westerners?
    Surely the Muslim rights deserve protection.
    Such important rights as marrying infants, stoning rape victims, cutting off hands for petty theft, hanging homosexuals, beating one’s wife with a stick, raping non Muslim girls and women, sawing off heads with a dull blade, killing one’s disobedient children, slavery, murdering non Muslims when the urge arises, rioting for amusement, and so many other precious rights that Muslims cherish dearly..

    What he really is unhappy about is the reluctance of most people (politicians on a whole excluded) in the West to submit to their Muslim invaders.

    Related to the IS, here is the woeful tale of four of our very own Cdn. jihadis (Bangladeshi) who were determined to go and fight. After being stopped the first time, the four guys didn’t seem to “de-radicalize” much back home and have disappeared a second time and it looks like it’s permanently this time.

      Let ’em go. Just never let them come back.

    I can’t say he’s wrong about that one.

      Ah yes, expecting a barbarian to accept personal Liberty is a mug’s game.
