Did Iran Take Action Against ISIS

Over the weekend, the Iranian regime publicized a missile strike against purported ISIS targets in eastern Syria. It claimed that the attack was a response to the twin terror attacks in Tehran at the Parliament building and the shrine of the founder of the regime.

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps units launched mid-range ground-to-ground missiles from western Iran into the Deir al Zour region of eastern Syria, killing a “large number” of terrorists and destroying their equipment and weapons, Reuters reported, and added that the missiles targeted the “headquarters and gathering centers of Takfiri terrorists supporting and building car bombs.”

15 June 2017

Hezbollah, one of Iran’s biggest militia groups, has said that it is going to strike US soldiers that are in Syria. This is just further proof that Iran is directing its proxies to take action with regards to the American military coalition forces.

"Terrorism Breeds Terrorism" in Iran's Twin Attacks

13 June 2017

Iran Blames US for ISIS

13 June 2017

Over the weekend, the Iranian regime announced their theory that the U.S. is to blame for birth and growth of ISIS. The theory came after the recent twin attacks in Tehran.

Armstrong Williams, who was an advisor and spokesman for the presidential campaign of Dr. Ben Carson, and is a radio host, talked about this claim in a piece in the Hill. “It is also important to recognize the significant role that symbolism plays in both Iranian and Middle Eastern cultures. Which is why the second terrorist attack targeting Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s tomb complex, the leader of Iran’s Islamic revolution, was a veritable attack at Iran’s core,” he writes, adding, “These twin terror attacks, striking the mullahs’ parliament and shrine to the Khomeini, represent a very painful bitter pill for the Iranian regime to swallow.”

Iran Regime Is No "Victim" When It Comes to Terrorism

12 June 2017

Last week’s terror attacks in Iran have been widely criticised throughout the world and while we must have sympathy for the victims and their families, we must not feel sympathy with the Iranian Regime, according to a leading political analyst.

Paulo Casaca, founder and executive director of the Brussels-based South Asia Democratic Forum (SADF), told DW in an interview last Thursday that it is wrong to consider the Iranian Regime a victim of terrorism in the same way that we consider the UK and France as victims of terrorism.
