The Kurdistan Voice: As you know, one of the most disputed political topics in the Middle East is the independence referendum of Kurdistan, which will be held within the next three months. Until now, Iran has opposed the referendum more than Baghdad or even Ankara. Is Iran afraid of an independent Kurdistan because it is likely to become a catalyst for the Kurds of Iran?

Dr. Moradian: An independent Kurdish state, regardless of size, is a direct threat to Iranian political hegemony and the regional power of the Middle East.

Essentially, the long-term strategic goal of Iran is to create a Shiite block, or as they call it, a Shiite Crescent and claim the territorial and ideological leadership of the Shiite world.

The removal of Saddam Hussein created the space for the Iranian regime to further spread their influence in the region.

In Lebanon and in part of Yemen, Iran has already been able to establish their dominance and have widespread Shiite support. All of Iranian's efforts in Syria are towards this same end.

While Iran has been involved in Syria since the beginning of the conflict, they became physically engaged in 2014 to preserve the power of an Alawite Shiite regime. The territorial integrity of Iraq and Syria and the preservation of the ruling powers in these countries is of paramount importance to Iran. Therefore, anything that threatens this plan is something Iran will vehemently oppose. Kurds are situated, physically and politically, in direct opposition to this plan. Kurds are also positioned to oppose Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's ambitions to reestablish an Ottoman Sunni Crescent (please see Question 3 for more on this topic).

Establishing a Kurdish state will shake the balance in the region, as it does not reinforce the larger geopolitical visions of Iran and/or Turkey.
Furthermore, while the situations of Kurds in Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey are different, there is cross-border influence and exchange. The formation of a Kurdish state in any one of these regions can catalyze Kurds in other regions.

Iraq Situation Report:  April 21 - May 5, 2017


By Jessa Rose Dury-Agri and the ISW Iraq Team
 
 
ISIS is setting conditions for its annual Ramadan campaign, anticipated to begin on May 26 with intent to exploit security vulnerabilities across the country. ISIS tested security in and around Baghdad by conducting a successful Suicide Vehicle-Borne IED (SVBIED) attack in central Baghdad and attempting additional attacks in Balad, Tarmiyah, and Jurf al-Sakhr.
 
ISIS strained Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) resources by increasing the tempo of attacks in Ramadi and far west Anbar Province. ISIS attempted numerous attacks in Salah al-Din province, which the ISF foiled.
 
The attacks indicate ISIS's continued attack capabilities in this zone. ISIS attacked Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) near Mosul in a potential bid to incite sectarian violence and detract from Mosul operations.

Iran, a Secret Hand behind ISIS Growing!

reza_fathollanejad.jpgReza Fathollanejad

March 12,2017 

Today, ISIS is so weak in comparison with its power during last three years, but whereas the anti-ISIS operations have been successful somewhat this terrorist group is close to its last breathing, the United states, the European countries and the Arab states should be careful about what was behind the power of ISIS, because the source of terrorism the Islamic Republic of Iran is breathing yet.

 
 

Some important elements behind very fast growing of ISIS

When ISIS was a small group and had not been gotten a worldwide attention yet, the situation of Iraq and even Syria was not suitable for raising such a brutal and backward group. In Iraq, for instance, the Sunni Iraqis were tired of being in center of the clashes between the Iraqi army and the Coalition forces with Al-Qaida and pro-Bath groups and the bomb attacks carried out by the Shia and Sunni terrorist groups that had caused destruction of every things a normal life needs.

In one aspect, this is right that the war situation cause violence that reproduces violence; but it should not be forgotten that any growing political group needs to get a sort of support from the purpose community. We did not see any big uprising or protest at Iraq’s Sunni cities against the presence of the United States’ forces in Iraq or more against the Kurdistan government as an ally of the U.S in the period of constructing ISIS while most of the protests and complains were concentrated on the Iran’s interferences in Iraq’s affairs and Baghdad government. But ISIS has not attacked the Iran’s very close allies so often that it has targeted the U.S’ allies, except during its first year.
