The 21st Century Phenomenon





Sixty heads of states or high ranking representatives attended, on Saturday 06/25/2011, an “Anti-Terror” conference in Iran’s capital Tehran with the participation of some US “partners” like Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Iraqi President Jalal Talebani, Tajik President Emomali Rahmon and Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir.


Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad delivered a speech at the conference, in which he proposed that a secretariat should be established in an effort to coordinate counter-terrorism activities.

He said that the secretariat would make efforts to offer a single definition of terrorism, explore it roots, propose practical ways to campaign against terrorism, mobilize global support for counter-terrorism campaign, and reform colonialist and discriminatory mechanisms prevailing in the world so they incline toward justice (see also -IRans Momentum).

In addition, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon sent a message to the conference, which was read out by UN representative Muhammad Rafiuddin Shah. In his message, Ban thanked the Islamic Republic of Iran for organizing the conference and said that all countries in the world shoulder a responsibility for campaigning against terrorism. He also expressed hope that the conference would achieve its objectives.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Iraqi President Jalal Talebani, Tajik President Emomali Rahmon, and Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir delivered speeches at the conference too (see also – Enigmatic-Peace).

In his speech, Hamid Karzai stated that Muslim countries have been the main victims of terrorism, and therefore should unite in their struggle against terrorism (see – Leaning to Tehran).

Tajik President Emomali Rahmon, in his address to the conference, proposed that an international counter-terrorism center should be established. He also stated that terrorism cannot be uprooted unless all countries make collective efforts in this regard.

In addition, Iraqi president Jalal Talebani proposed that Iraq host the next conference on counter-terrorism. He also expressed hope that other countries help the Iraqi government fight against terrorists. All countries should put aside their disagreements and have collective cooperation in campaign again terrorism.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Talebani pointed to the Iraqi government’s plan to expel the members of the terrorist Mojahedin Khalq Organization, an Iranian opposition group, based in Camp Ashraf, saying the camp will be closed by the end of the year 2011 (see – IRAQ-US DEAL).

Sudan’s president Hassan Al-Bashir also addressed the conference, saying that no serious measure has been taken so far to combat terrorism. He also said that double-standard approaches should not be adopted toward the issue of terrorism (see – Dangerous SUDAN).

After the conference, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi announced it was agreed at the conference that the Islamic Republic of Iran will host the aforementioned secretariat, and the next conference on counter-terrorism will be held in Baghdad.

The conference of countries, all known for their corrupted and abusive political system, some of them, especially Pakistan and Iran, are major exporters of terror and instability to their regions indicates, above all, the political vacuum USA is leaving behind as its influence, authority and legitimacy has sharply declined (see – Obama’s Withdrawal). The conference also emphasizes nowadays terror is mainly an Islamic phenomena and Muslims are the main victims.
