Iran Funding To Terrorists
The world is experiencing multiple epidemics where some are deadly and others aren’t that deadly and topping the list is terrorism. Basically, there are multiple victims of terrorism today and there is no clear forecast of the immensity of victims tomorrow. In the world, there are countries that are well known to hosting and helping the terrorism groups and organizations hence becoming the root cause for the terror that attacks the people in the affected areas and regions. The major country that has supported terrorism and has continuously funded terrorism is Iran. Iran funding to terrorism has been an act of atrocity to the world and the populaces.
Iran funds terrorism for multiple reasons but the most fundamental one is the national power received from these terrorists. There is no doubt that Iran has always been the primary source of funding for the terrorists. Every year, there are new terrorism recruits that needs training and weapons and Iran has always availed this. Since majority of the terrorists are Muslims, they have had their sanctuaries in Iran and the Iranian government is aware and has engineered to the availability of these sanctuaries.
There are different groups of terrorism and Iran is believed to be funding some. As far as Iran is concerned, these terrorist groups are nothing but non-government Military actors who have formed their national liberation movements for the sole purpose of defending their fellow men from the wrath and hand of the Israelites. Therefore, Iran has faithfully availed safe harbors, training, funding and weapons to these groups or terrorism organizations.
Iran involvement is traced after the fall of Shah. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps was formed by Iran and it was to safeguard the Governments’ social policy. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps instead started penetrating and recruiting other people from the neighboring regions. They could sell their beliefs to these regions and avail all their financial, training and weapon needs. The membership number was at 350,000 in 1986 and they has a naval and an air force. As Iran continued and extended their support the organization acquired more forces.
There is need for Iran to be keen and make a bold move and decide whether to abhor funding terrorism as they have been blacklisted by the US government for trade. Recently, The parliament of Iran has had meetings and sittings and opted for dismissing and boycotting from helping and funding these terrorists. However, there are some countries like China and Russia who have bypassed US’ sanctions for countries to avoid trading and buying Iranian Oil.
