Although the United States in 2007 designated the Qods Force, an arm of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, as a terrorist organization, more than 12 years later, in a move that was universally described as correct, the administration announced that the same head of evil, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, was listed as a terrorist organization.
The idea of Ayatollah Khomeini’s establishment of the Terrorist Guard in 1979 was to marginalize the role of the regular army, to create for himself an army of its own proportions, and to select leaders within its loyalty, and even its absolute slavery. The mission of the Guards was limited to protecting his regime, preventing military coups, and other special missions. Since then, along with the Revolutionary Guards, Khomeini established a Special Intelligence Ministry, complementing his fascist religious system, and Iran became embraced by a regime and extremist ideologies, with its government and institutions.
“By the supreme leader’s decision, the Revolutionary Guards was given broad powers to control the Iranian economy, and it had considerable political and economic influence, allowing it to control Iran’s decisions externally, despite the complaints of former Iranian presidents, who often expressed displeasure with its practices and powers.”
In one way or another, the terrorist guard is the shield that protects the mollahs regime, and in the course of 40 years, its arms extended to Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and Yemen. The terrorist guard became an army within an army and a state within countries, and it became a practical axis to threaten the security of the region and a tool to spread violence and terrorism in the Middle East and the world at large.
After the first Gulf War, Iran decided to export crises to the region in order to realize its expansionist project, pumping Iranian oil money into the arteries of the terrorist guard, and placing in the hands of its leadership schemes based on buying discontent and establishing and financing terrorist groups and militias, such as Hezbollah, Hamas, Hachd al-Chaabi, and the Houthis.
While Qatar has close, secret and public relations with Iran, whose main aim is to fuel conflicts and tensions, destabilize the region, interfere in the internal affairs of the countries of the region and finance terrorism, Doha found itself, with Al-Hamdain’s approval, as a client and a traitor in Tehran’s lap, meeting the objectives of undermining security in the Arab countries, making it, against its will, criticize the American decision to classify the Guards as a terrorist organization.
U.S. sanctions on Iran have exposed many things, including the question of funding the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, which requires huge budgets, but when Qatar announced its defense of the terrorist guard, strangely, the question seemed to have to be changed: How does Qatar support and fund the Revolutionary Guards, and is this done in full view of the U.S. administration, or in ways that the devil himself does not know?
While condemning the US decision to designate the Guard as a terrorist organization, Doha thought in a low voice that no one other than Tehran would hear its voice, but many circles around the world, in America itself, and in the Gulf as well, picked up and analyzed the sound waves, and it did not seem that the issue was merely a joke about the Gulf, or a tradition of Ankara, or just a fear and panic of the mullahs, but beyond the word.
When Trump announced his decision to designate the Revolutionary Guards a terrorist organization on his Twitter site, a message was sent to him saying: When will Qatar be designated a terrorist state? Of course he’s not answering, but the many answers I’ve heard, have indicated that this will happen soon, but I doubt it. Trump has a problem with the “al-Oudeid Base,” which his predecessors planted in Qatar, as well as a lot of Qatari money, which has not yet been paid, even if the terrorist guard is proven to receive direct Qatari funding.
