MEK: Hezbollah Under Iran’s Command
The Islamic Republic of Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has made no secret of his desire to rule the Middle East. Khamenei and his acolytes already claim control of three Arab capitals: Damascus, Baghdad, and Sanaa, and they’d want to add Beirut to the list.
Lebanon has devolved into a genuine catastrophic
Lebanon has devolved into a genuine catastrophic case in the 15 months since a catastrophic explosion demolished the port of Beirut in August 2020. The economy and currency of Lebanon have both collapsed. The country now has the world’s third-highest inflation rate, trailing only Zimbabwe and Venezuela. Electricity blackouts, which were previously unheard of in this oil-rich country, have become commonplace, forcing business and industry away. Large fields of untapped hydrocarbon reserves have long been recognized in the eastern Mediterranean, but political gridlock in Beirut has hampered their development.
Iran has seized the chance to tighten its grip over Lebanon, sensing that America has lost interest in the Middle East following its disastrous retreat from Afghanistan and vow to withdraw all combat forces from Iraq. The mullahs’ administration has begun shipping petrol-filled tankers to Beirut and has offered to construct two new power plants. Any challenge to their hegemony will be met with savage retaliation from their Hezbollah allies.
Tehran was primarily to blame
Last week, when protestors seeking the dismissal of a judge investigating last year’s explosion were attacked, shooting and mortar fire erupted in Beirut, evoking memories of the 1975 civil war. Hezbollah had organized the protest, and they quickly blamed the assault on the Saudi-backed Christian Lebanese Forces party, which had killed six Shi’ites. The emergence of a new civil war involving Lebanon’s three distinct communities, Shi’ia, Sunni, and Christian, would play right into Iran’s hands.
When civil war broke out in Iraq, Tehran was primarily to blame. The Iranian dictatorship had urged their puppet Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to crack down on the Sunni minority, sparking a backlash that Islamic State immediately exploited. ISIS swept into Iraq in 2014, taking almost 40% of the country’s territory. The Iranian authorities then took advantage of the situation.
The mullahs despatched the terrorist leader
The mullahs despatched the terrorist leader of their extraterritorial Quds Force, Gen. Qassem Soleimani, to lead the assault against the insurgents, claiming to be helping their Iraqi neighbors and the West in the fight against ISIS. Soleimani, who oversaw the heinous killing of tens of thousands of Iraqi Sunnis in the historic towns of Fallujah, Ramadi, and Mosul while commanding Iraqi Shi’ite militias, left a trail of flaming wreckage in his aftermath.
On Jan. 3, 2020, Soleimani and the Iraqi chief of Hashd al-Shabi, Abu Mehdi Mohandes, were assassinated in a Baghdad Airport drone strike ordered by US President Donald Trump. The Iranian regime suffered a major blow as a result of this. There is mounting dissatisfaction in Iran as a result of their own deteriorating economy under strong American sanctions and the coronavirus outbreak, which has killed 460,000 people.
Ebrahim Raisi is regarded as the Butcher of Tehran
Ebrahim Raisi is regarded as the Butcher of Tehran because of his suspected role in the slaughter of more than 30,000 political prisoners in 1988, most of them were followers of the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran). Raisi is accused of ordering the assassination of 1,500 young protestors during the 2019 countrywide uprising while serving as the chief of the judiciary.
Thousands more were hurt, and a large number of people were detained, tortured, and murdered. Khamenei is plainly convinced that a brutal, hard-line president will allow Iran to reclaim its Middle Eastern dominance and stretch its global strength.
The next goal for Khamenei
The next goal for Khamenei and his new fanatical president is to add Beirut to Iran’s list of supplicant Middle Eastern capitals. Last week’s armed skirmishes in the Lebanese capital, which resulted in the deaths of two Hezbollah terrorists, will reawaken Tehran’s support for the terrorist Shi’ia militant organization.
Hezbollah will be urged to retaliate by the mullahs. They are well aware that the group’s advanced training program for other pro-Iranian Shi’ia militias across the Middle East is critical to their own survival. Hezbollah’s extensive illicit fundraising activities, allied with its procurement, intelligence, cyber, and disinformation operations, have elevated it to a vital regional entity acting under Iran’s command. Using Hezbollah to turn Lebanon into a client state is a top priority for the Iranian regime.
