Justice supporters Association (families of terror martyrs of Iran) condemning the terrorist attack against the Iranian civilian jet airliner by the American cruiser Vincennes, considers this criminal act a sign of western countries’, especially US leaders’ negligence of the lives of innocent people.

In this statement, the enormous terrorist acts of Mojahedin-e Khalq terrorist organization and murder of 12000 Iranians and also the crimes of Jundullah against Iranian people were reminded. According to the Jundullah ringleader’s confessions and the MKO-related documents, US has supported these terrorist groups; now the question is that what is the relation between fighting against terrorism and at the same time, taking the side of terrorist groups? How can the US leaders respond the families who have lost their dearest ones by these terrorist groups?
Commemorating all the martyrs of terrorism and especially the victims of Iran Air Flight 655 who were victimized by the brutality of the US leaders, we condemn any double political approach by western countries towards terrorism phenomenon and believe that it is an important element in the expansion of terrorism.

At the end, we read: we, the families of more than 17000 victims of terrorism in Iran believe that global fight against terrorism demands an international determination, under whose light we can attain the slogan of “A World without Terrorism”. Western countries should abandon their support from terrorist groups and provide the required ground for trying the leaders of terrorist groups and cults.
