Why Soleimani’s Death Is More Important Than Al-Baghdadi and Bin Laden?

The elimination of Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mehdi Muhandes, the head of Iraq’s suppressive Bassij force, as an irreparable blow to the clerical regime.

Iran’s threat and military attempts against the U.S. is nothing new and is started 40 years ago

Two published lists of Iranian regime’s terror attempts before 9/11 and and the list of Victims of the Iranian Regime’s Terrorist Activities Abroad

Stop Fundamentalism Special Report - By Armin Baldwin

Iran enjoys a unique position in the world of Islam due to, among other factors, its strategic location, natural resources and historical and cultural role in the development of the Islamic civilization.

Rise of Islamic Fundamentalism

Thus, the Iran 1979 revolution quickly turned Tehran into the world capital of fundamentalists – similar to the relationship between Moscow and Marxism. More significant than the money or arms, the Iranian regime provided the fundamental currents with inspirational, political, regional and international support.

After the 1979 revolution Khomeini was incapable to lead the Iranian nation to freedom, economic prosperity and social progress. He chose a two-pronged policy to stay in power:

  1. Repression at home
  2. Export of “revolution” (terrorism under the flag of Islam) abroad

This is the reason why the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) was stablished to export terrorism and fundamentalism. Crimes of ISIS are not only similar to the IRGC but they are acting in parallel under the banner of Islam. In fact the IRGC Quds Force meddling in Syrian War paved the way for the growth of fundamentalism and emergence of evil phenomena such as (Daesh) ISIS, and led to one of the bloodiest conflicts in the Middle East.

The truth is that the IRGC and its Quds Force is a much greater threat than Daesh, and without confronting it, the Middle East and the world will not experience peace.

The Islamic extremists’ movements, which till then were mostly isolated and weak became the arms of the clerical regime ruling Iran for the export of terrorism and fundamentalism. This is how terrorism under the flag of Islamic fundamentalism became a global threat.

During 1980s and 1990s, at least 90 percent of the major terrorist attacks were linked either to Tehran as the epicenter of Islamic Fundamentalism and terrorism or to its surrogates and agents and movements that managed to thrive only under the light of Tehran’s Mullahs.

These terrorist attacks, which have left thousands of casualties behind throughout the world, was just a small fraction of the bloody record of Islamic fundamentalism, led by the mullahs ruling Iran.

U.S. Invasion in Iraq and the Quds Force

The objectives for which Khomeini fanned the flames of eight years of war with Iraq was left unrealized in the 80s. This is the reason why the U.S. invasion in 2003 in Iraq was an opportune for the Iranian regime terror campaign it had started since the 80s.

In 1990 the regime stablished the Quds (Jerusalem) Force. The Quds Force referred to as the “seed of the International Islamic Army”. It turned it to IRGC’s most active, skilled and elite unit. Its task was defined as” commanding, planning and executing extra territorial operations of the IRGC. The Quds Force Commander, Soleimani, reported directly to the supreme leader Ali Khamenei. The Quds Force supervises and coordinates all terrorist operations and activities related to the “export of the Islamic Revolution” to various countries, especially Iraq.

According to specific information obtained by the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK) from within the Iranian regime, the regime's embassy and consulates in Baghdad, Basra, Karbala and Najaf are under the control of the IRGC and its Quds Force. Large numbers of IRGC commanders are stationed in these centers, and from there they control the departments and groups affiliated to the regime, including Hashd Al-Shaabi (Iraqi Mobalization Force).

In addition to the unusually large number of the regime's armed forces personnel, a large number of the officials of the Iranian regime's Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) are based in the regime's embassy and consulates. They work closely with IRGC commanders.

Soleimani’s Unique Role

As the commander of the Quds Force, Qasem Soleimani played a unique role in Iranian regime export of terrorism in Iraq and Syria.

In heaping praise upon Soleimani, Khamenei confirmed the fact that the regime’s foreign policy when it comes to the countries in the region is prepared and implemented not by the mullahs’ foreign ministry, but by IRGC’s Quds force. 

“Soleimani was not active only in the military aspect, in politics he was the same. More than once I told those who are in politics that they should learn from Soleimani, the way he was brave in politics, he was very wise and at the same time very influential.” 

The mullahs’ regime ambassadors to the region are systematically assigned by the Quds force. In fact, the regime’s ambassadors to Iraq have always been ranking members of the Quds force. Their actual ambassador to Iraq, Iraj Masjedi, as well as his predecessor, Danaifard, played an active role in Iraq after the regime change in that country in 2003.

Both Danaifard and Masjedi, under command of Soleimani, were behind deadly attacks against the MEK when the latter was based in Ashraf and Liberty camps in Iraq, causing 146 deaths among the residents before they were evacuated to Albania in 2016.

A sum of Soleimani’s record

The elimination of Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mehdi Muhandes, the head of Iraq’s suppressive Bassij force, as an irreparable blow to the clerical regime.

Iranian regime export of terrorism under the flag of Islam that started 40 years ago had uncountable victims. Below is a list of the Iranian regime’s terrorist attempts and the victims that is rational. This list doesn't include the Iranian regime's Quds Force crimes in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon which worth being discussed in a separate article. 

This list proves that, Soleimani’s death as the number one henchman of Khamenei, marks the end of an important symbol of the Iranian regime’s military propaganda and blackmailing policy, that started 40 years ago.

A sum of terrorist attacks carried out either by the Iranian regime or fundamentalism under its hegemony and influence are as follow:
