The Iranian regime has been operating since 1979 according to specific plans that seek to export the Iranian revolution to neighboring countries through various mechanisms based on spreading chaos and fighting to weaken governments and regimes so that the tools of the Iranian regime, especially the Quds Force, its external arm, and its Revolutionary Guard can penetrate countries, especially the Arab ones and then starting plans aimed at creating Iranian influence through the creation of opposition and terrorist groups and supporting them as well as promoting Shiism and sectarianism. In fact, all Iranian institutions and organs operate within this protocol and this set goal.

The Iranian strategy has not changed since the current regime claimed power 40 years ago. Despite the change of governments and the rotation of political currents, however, all political, security, military and cultural institutions and agencies have all worked to implement the expansionist Iranian project. The heads of government in Iran were only an image the mullahs’ regime is using to deceive the world that Iran has a democratically elected president, but the fact that the president is powerless and can only be seen as an executive of one of the institutions of the Iranian regime, which is usually presented as a scapegoat for internal and external regime’s policies and their resulting disasters, crises and economic, social and security problems.

The Iranian regime aims from the presidential elections’ play and assigning a person under the name of the president of the republic, after taking all powers related to the country’s foreign policies from him, to two basic goals, external and internal. The external goal is to deceive the world that there is a democracy in Iran that allows the Iranian president to be chosen by the Iranian people through the ballot box. The inside one is to hold the responsibility of the results of the regime’s policies accountable to the president who is supposedly in charge of the country’s policies, while the country is run by the house of the supreme leader and the Revolutionary Guard. President of the republic is usually turned to be a scapegoat as happened with the hardliner Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and reformist Mohammad Khatami and before them Hashemi Rafsanjani and now with Rouhani, who turned into a target for criticism and attack.

What is new now is that the Iranian regime had finalized its plots and plans, which it had started 40 years ago, to be implemented now, forty years after the regime’s advent, and that was the reason behind the exposure of these plans and their discovery. After the formation of groups and terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Houthis in Yemen and the sectarian militias in Iraq, the Iranian regime began the process of spreading chaos and destruction in some Arab countries, under the guise of fighting terrorism, defending the Shiite sanctities, supporting the vulnerable and backing the Palestine cause and many others. This is a very dangerous stage that requires Arab and Islamic public awareness and strict government decisions that put an end to Iranian terrorism and the mullahs’ plots.

Therefore, it is likely, and what is also required during the current period, to intensify the holding of summits, conferences and venues to tackle the dangers of Iranian terrorism and develop ways to reduce the Iranian sabotage behavior. Within these international efforts, the conference which is intended to be convened in the Polish capital in mid-February to promote the future of security and peace in the Middle East, in order to provide an international conviction that the Iranian regime is the root of the problems and crises in the Middle East and that there are no solutions to these crises and problems, especially terrorism, except by putting an end to the policies of the Iranian regime and its destructive project.

The policies adopted by many countries of the world, following the example of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and other countries, which were at the forefront of understanding the dangers of Iranian behavior, indicate that the international community is convinced that the policies of the Iranian regime must be put to an end and that the intervention of the Revolutionary Guard and the Quds Force in the region should be stopped. The international community concluded that no stability and no security in this region, which is the most important in the world economically, as long as the Iranian regime is not deterred from its destructive policies.
