West’s Wrong Policy on Extremism

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the West should review its policy on the issue of extremism.
“Westerners should ask themselves what has been wrong that many extremists… in the Middle East have come from western societies,” Zarif said last week during the session “The Geopolitical Outlook” in the World Economic Forum in Davos, IRNA reported on Sunday.
“They (western extremists) have not been brought up in undemocratic societies. They have been raised in the West and unfortunately have come to Syria and Iraq. It is a serious question,” he said.
Elsewhere, the senior diplomat said the problem in the Middle East is not a clash between Shiites and Sunnis, but it is a dispute between extremists and moderate forces in the region.
“Unfortunately, groups such as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, the al-Nusra Front and other extremist groups in Iraq and Syria, which proclaim that they are defending Sunnis, have killed many Sunnis.”
