Iranian Official: Calls for 'Holy War' Fuel Radicalism

Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for the Middle East said on Wednesday that the calls by Sunni clerics for a “holy war” against the Syrian government and its Shiite allies fuel the radicalism in the region.

The comments were made in response to recent statements by Sunni sheikhs on the subject, following the intervention of Hizbullah in the fighting in Syria.
