London, Oct. 06 – United States President George W. Bush on Thursday blasted Iran and Syria for collaborating with terrorists during the war on terror.

“State sponsors like Syria and Iran have a long history of collaboration with terrorists, and they deserve no patience from the victims of terror”, Bush said, in a speech at the National Endowment for Democracy in Washington.

The U.S. President said that the influence of Islamic radicalism was also magnified by “helpers and enablers”, adding, “They have been sheltered by authoritarian regimes, allies of convenience like Syria and Iran, that share the goal of hurting America and moderate Muslim governments”.

Bush accused the two countries of using “terrorist propaganda to blame their own failures on the West and America, and on the Jews”.

“These radicals depend on front operations, such as corrupted charities, which direct money to terrorist activity. They’re strengthened by those who aggressively fund the spread of radical, intolerant versions of Islam in unstable parts of the world”.

The U.S. was “determined to deny radical groups the support and sanctuary of outlaw regimes”, Bush said.

Accusing Iran and Syria of collaborating with terrorists, the U.S. President said that America “makes no distinction between those who commit acts of terror and those who support and harbour them, because they’re equally as guilty of murder”.

“Any government that chooses to be an ally of terror has also chosen to be an enemy of civilization. And the civilized world must hold those regimes to account”.
