Persian Gulf dictatorships intolerant of democracy

TEHRAN, July 1 (MNA) – Parliament speaker international adviser has said Persian Gulf Arab dictatorships would not tolerate democracy in the region.

Hossein Sheikholeslam told Mehr News correspondent in Parliament that the terrorist group ISIS had claims for global recognition since the beginning, and “it grasped the opportunity and the lacunae created by the Syrian crisis to proclaim Islamic State, known recently as Islamic Caliphate.”

Sheikholestalm believed that Iraqi government and people were united against terrorists. “Iraq’s government capability to mobilize the public against ISIS is highly important, and it would significantly blunt ISIS cutting edge,” asserted the Parliament speaker international advisor.

He also said that one of the objectives of the ISIS was to despoil the public face of Islam especially in terms of democracy fostered by Islam. “ISIS western supporters and Zionism had in their agenda to disintegrate the Iraq so as to find permanent foothold for Zionism in the region; they would only seek fighting democracy, since Persian Gulf Arab dictatorships would not see democracy in the region,” he added.

“ISIS supporters would rejoice to see that democracy in Iraq comes to a complete debacle, since they see democracy as bane for themselves,” Sheikholeslam said.
