Iran Blames US for ISIS

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, Qatar, and the Taliban Are Threatening the US Mission in Afghanistan

Recent reports have indicated that the Iranian Regime has been increasing its support of the Taliban in the north and east of Afghanistan.

Historically, the Taliban has been working to destroy Shiite groups, like Hazaras, in the region, so it is strange that they would accept support from the Shiite Iranians. However, the Iranian Regime is now a major player in the region.

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

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.

Iran: Cyber-Attack More Likely Than Military Attack

Despite some general concern in the media, President Trump’s visit to the Middle East was a resounding success. His previous actions and words regarding the travel ban affecting several Muslim-majority countries, and his tendency to speak out of place, made many believe that the trip would be rather unsuccessful. 

However, Saudi Arabia pulled out all the stops to welcome the US President and an arms deal worth around $110 billion was made.
