The US government barely dares criticize the Iranian regime for its accelerating nuclear weapons program and this is but one example of a prevailing international climate of fear when it comes to Iran. Almost nobody in the so called “international community” dares severely criticizing the Iranian regime as the fear of Iranian mass terrorism – potentially with chemical, biological and radiological weapons – is ubiquitous worldwide. The Iranian regime believes itself to be on the ascendancy. Since the great powers are all paralyzed in fear of the Iranian regime is it up to tiny Israel to make a difference and with its Middle Eastern allies break up the Khomeinist empire both outside and inside the Iranian state.
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett recently noted that there is an ongoing Cold War between Israel and Iran. Indeed, contemporary Iran is in many ways similar to the Soviet Union; corrupt, totalitarian and internally profoundly impopular. It is up to Israel and the AANES (the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria) to liberate Syria and Lebanon from Iranian control. It is up to Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to jointly establish a no-fly zone over Iran. It is up to the Israeli-Muslim alliance to deploy Iran’s regional strategy of divide and rule and ethnic militarization inside Iran itself against the Khomeinist regime.
However, Iran’s global strategy of terrorist deterrence and non-conventional intimidation sadly works. It is nevertheless now up to Israel and its Middle Eastern allies to make sure that the Khomeinist regime becomes a regime of decline and an empire of implosion as opposed to one of a power on the ascendancy. Liberating Syria and Lebanon will be a good start.
