the present article is an academic research which reviews and critically analyzes the discourse of four newspapers: "The New York Times", "The Guardian", "Le Munde" and "Die Welt" with the aim of understanding and criticizing the hidden and profound discourse and idelogy whtch influence the western "media function". The theoretical approach adopted by the research is the oriental ism ideology and discourse as a system of eastern representation in the west. Results inicate that "terrorism" and "Islamic fundamentalism" are the main iconographic stereotypes which arc used by the western press. These two stereotype actually represent Islam and Iran as a threat to peace, democracy and modernization. Continuous degradation and reduction of Iran as a kind of dual threat under the brand of Islamic fundarucntalisru and international terrorism would portray this country more dangerous than other "rogue" countries for the west and other spots of the world.
