General Defends Iran’s Regional Performance

Major General Qasem Soleimani, a senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, says Iran defends all Muslims against the threat posed by the self-styled Islamic State militant group.  The commander of IRGC Qods Force made the comment during a ceremony in the southeastern province of Kerman on Sunday, according to Press TV.  “Takfirism is a fire in the homes of our Sunni brothers. And those who created it thought they could ... [use it to] bring the Islamic Republic and Shiaism to their knees,” he said. The commander questioned claims of “Iranian adventurism” in the region, stressing that Iran’s measures are aimed at defending the dignity of all Muslims. “Is it an adventurous move for the Islamic Republic to defend Muslims’ properties and lives … [and] to stop the destruction of mosques?”
