The US has taken a tough stance on the Iranian Regime ever since Donald Trump came to power in 2017.

This can be seen in the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) in 2018 and subsequent reimbursement of sanctions, as well as this month’s decision to place the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on the US State Department’s List of Foreign Terrorist Organisations (FTOs).

Despite the almost complete defeat of ISIS, Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq and Syria are still facing persecution, but this time from Iran, according to the CEO of the Knights of Columbus.

Carl Anderson wrote in The Wall Street Journal that the religious minorities still live in “peril” because of the Iraqi government's tolerance of the Iranian Regime’s influence. This means that many minority groups, who fled the country to escape ISIS just a few years ago are either staying away or fleeing again.

This move, which was long overdue and heavily anticipated, was welcomed by the majority of Iranians and those in the Iranian diaspora because the IRGC is the tool that the Regime uses to crush any and all dissent.
