The Disruptive Regional Role of Iranís Ideology
Asharq al Awsat ^ | Feb. 12, 20018

Posted on 02/12/2018 2:06:35 PM PST by nuconvert

On December 8, 2017, the leader of Iraq’s Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq Qais al-Khazali paid a visit to the Lebanese-Israeli border to inspect Lebanese “Hezbollah” resistance positions and to issue a threat to the southern neighbor.

In a leaked video, he was shown as saying: “We are here with ‘Hezbollah’ and we announce our complete readiness to stand side by side with the Lebanese people and Palestinian cause against the Israeli occupation.”

Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq, or Khazali Network, is affiliated with Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF).

His statement however demonstrated the common interests of pro-Iran regional militias to allow Tehran to establish a security belt that extends from Iran to Lebanon and which passes through Iraq and Syria.

-excerpt-

This ideology has its roots in global Iranian Islamic ideology, which is committed to exporting the Islamic Revolution.

This goal is stipulated in the Iranian constitution and it ultimately seeks to create a “united and global society of believers.” This commitment has so far been successfully implemented in Iraq and Lebanon.

Has Iran successfully built a cross-border semi-military and ideologically cohesive belt that extends from Iraq to Lebanon and which passes through Syria? Ahmed said that the Lebanese “Hezbollah” is not alone, but it has Syrian and Iraqi versions.

“These are not literal versions, but they are organized entities that share the same ideology and regional goals,” he stated.

“All of these factions in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon will fight side by side with each other in the next war,” he declared.

Sounds great Ashqwah, as soon as they destroy every Sunni bug on the planet we might care. Until then, your kind will pay for ISIS.

Iran is doing this in the region to attack Israel. Should we just sit back & watch?

Absolutely. We are sitting in FOB’s with these guys every single day right now cleaning out ISIS bugs.

They couldn’t scratch Israel in a million years. I’m tired of the Saudi’s blowing up our cities and then getting us to do their bidding for the good of Israel who they hate anyway.

They’ll be fine for a long time, unless their democrats take the same immigration stance that ours do. Then it’ll be over for them in a month.

Israel is not an American state. It has 300+ nuclear weapons and the top military in the region, more than able to defend itself.

Thanks — it’s two pretending to be allies, and their prison bitch.
