We condemn Islamic terrorism in London

We condemn Islamic terrorism in London

Once again, terrorist crimes have shocked and outraged the world. This time, the victims were the people of London. The bombings in London's underground and a bus on 7 July have left more than fifty dead and over 700 wounded. The Worker-communist Party of Iran gives its most heartfelt condolences to the families of this tragedy; our hearts are with the victims and survivors.

All evidence points to the terror attack on London being the work of Islamic terrorists - a continuation of the crimes committed in Bali, New York, and Madrid. It must be strongly and unequivocally condemned by all. Such attacks are part of the wretched and cruel track record of the Islamic movement against innocent people, which places bombs in public places, carries out assassinations, killings, torture, execution and repression.

The victims of this movement are women, freedom-seekers, socialists and innocent people in streets, on public transportation and discothèques. Civilised humanity must stand up to this beast and relegate it to the dustbins of history.

The murder of innocent people in London is another instance in the race of terrorists, which began on September 11 on the world stage between Islamic states and movements on the one hand and western states led by the United States on the other. Both are armed to the teeth and feeding off each other. In the meanwhile, the victims of this war and slaughter are only innocent and ordinary people.

This race must be ended. We mustn't allow this terrorist act to become another excuse for western governments to expand their militaristic operations, slaughter the people of another country and limit civil rights and freedoms in western society. Our call is for civilised humanity to come to the fore and put an end to the barbarity of both sides. Humanity must rid itself of state and non-state terrorism. This is the task of civilised humanity, socialists, freedom-seekers and egalitarian and humanitarian people everywhere.
