Iran: Pals fire rockets, Islamic world a victim of terrorism, Global Arrogance attacks

The theme of today's excursion to the topsy-turvy world of the Iranian press is terrorism. Iran's approach to terrorism alternates between cheering for it and picturing itself as victimized by it:

IRIB: "Palestinians fire rockets":
In retaliation to the savage crimes of the fake Zionist regime against the Palestinian defenceless nation, the armed wing of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas fired several rockets into the Zionist settled occupied lands.

In a statement released by Hamas in Gaza, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades said they had fired nearly 30 rockets and 61 mortars into the occupied lands in an act of retribution for the assassinations committed by the enemy.

The Zionist regime was continuing massacre of innocent Palestinian people.
Mehr News: "Tehran to host conference on 'Islamic world, a victim of terrorism’":
The first international conference on the “culture of resistance” will be held under the name of “Islamic World, a Victim of Terrorism” in Tehran on May 1-2.

“The event is planned to help expand the culture of resistance in the Islamic world,” Secretary General of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought, Ayatollah Mohammad-Ali Taskhiri, told a press conference on Tuesday.

45 figures from 28 different countries will attend the conference, Taskhiri said.

He said the main objective of the conference is to “study terrorism and the ways to confront it, the role of global powers in the emergence of terrorist groups, a distinction between legitimate defense and terrorism, and a distinction between pure Islam and a distorted Islam.”

“Now the Islamic world is under the attack of the global hegemony, and the enemies are trying to shatter the unity and resistance of the ummah” through sowing the seeds of discord between Muslims, he explained.

The enemy is trying to intertwine the “concepts of resistance and terrorism”, delete the “culture of Jihad” from the Islamic system, and portraying the Islamic “resistance” groups as terrorists, he observed.

The Islamic ummah needs to be more familiar with the culture of resistance and be vigilant, he said, adding, “Islamic vigilance delivers lethal blow to the global hegemony.”
IRIB Radio: "Global Arrogance Attacking Entire Islamic World":
Secretary General of the World Assembly for Proximity Amongst Islamic Schools of Jurisprudence said: Today the entire Islamic world is under attack from Global Arrogance and the enemy is trying to break the resistance of the Iranians and Muslims by using all tricks up its sleeve.

Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Taskhiri, briefing reporters on the first International Congress of Culture of Resistance to be held in Tehran, May 1-2, said: The Ummah has to promote Islamic and Qur’anic awareness in order to increase their resistance.
He said: Islamic awareness will have the biggest impact on the enemy and the more powerful this impact the deeper would be the awareness.

The First International Congress on the Culture of Resistance is to be attended by 45 cultural and political figures from 28 world countries. The theme of the Congress is "Muslim World: Victim of Terrorism".
That conference should be the mother of all target-rich environments.
