While dreaming of another era of appeasement, Iran’s regime received major blows within the past two weeks.
On Tuesday, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the United Kingdom’s House of Commons urged the British government to proscribe the regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) as a terrorist entity and condemned human rights violations in Iran.
The Iranian Resistance has urged the European countries to proscribe the IRGC as a terrorist organization.
The Foreign Affairs Committee’s report underlined that the 2015 Iran nuclear deal with world powers, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA, is “imperfect.”
In January, the UK Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab said all that’s left of the JCPOA is a “shell of an agreement.” This is indeed due to the regime’s ongoing breaches of its commitment under the terms of the JCPOA.
The regime quickly reacted to the Foreign Affairs Committee’s report. Hamid Baidinejad, the terrorist regime’s ambassador in London, called this report “biased” and based on the reports of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), calling the latter a terrorist movement.
So why has the regime shown such a reaction to this report?
This Foreign Affairs Committee’s report, and its recommendation that the UK government proscribe the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) will have significant consequences for the regime.
If the UK government proscribes the IRGC as a terrorist entity, after it was designated as such by the United States in 2019, it would make the IRGC a leprous phenomenon.
The IRGC controls Iran’s economy and acts as the regime’s elite force of oppression and export of terrorism. Thus, it will be a significant blow to the regime.
