There will only be one winner In the war between Israel and Hamas militants. It’s a war. is Israel and Hamas are not the same.

In an operation coined “the Al-Aqsa Storm,” Hamas is the formal name of Hamas is The Islamic Resistance Movement has fired thousands upon thousands of rockets towards Israel on Oct. 7, 2023. Hamas fighters and Palestinian Islamic Jihad infiltrated Israel via land, sea and aircraft. Hundreds of Israelis have been killedMore than 2,000 were injured in the attack, and many hostages were taken.

In response, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared war on Hamas and launched airstrikes in Gaza. On the first day, nearly 400 Palestinians had been killed. according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

In the weeks to come, the Israeli military is sure to retaliate against Palestinian militants as well as civilians. As an analyst of Middle East politics and securityI think that thousands on Both sides will suffer. But when the smoke settles, only one country’s interests will have been served: Iran’s.

Already, some analysts are suggesting that Tehran’s fingerprints can be seen on Surprise your loved ones with a surprise attack on Israel. Israel. Iran’s leaders have reacted to the assault with encouragement and support.

The champion of Palestine

The decisive factor shaping Iran’s foreign policy was the 1979 overthrow Shah of Iran, the U.S.-friendly and repressive Shah Iran Transfer of state power to a Shiite Muslim revolutionary regime. This regime was characterized by a fervent anti-American imperialism, and anti-Israeli Zionism.

They claimed that the revolution was not against just the corrupt Iranian monarchy; it was intended to confront oppression and injustice everywhere, and especially those governments backed by the United States – chief among them, Israel.

The following are some of the ways to improve your own ability to learn. Iran’s leaders, Israel and the United States represented immorality, injustice and the greatest threat Iranian society and security. The hostility toward Israel that persists is Its close ties with the shah and Israel’s role in his sustained oppression of the Iranian people. Together with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, Israel’s intelligence service, the Mossad, helped organize the shah’s secret police and intelligence service, the SAVAK. This organization was dependent upon on increasingly harsh tactics to put down dissenters during the shah’s last two decades in power, including mass imprisonment, torture, disappearances, forced exile and killing thousands of Iranians.

Support for Palestinian Liberation was the central theme of Iran’s revolutionary message. The 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon – in retaliation for Lebanon-based Palestinian attacks against Israel – provided Iran It is an opportunity for the United States to show its anti-Zionist rhetoric in Lebanon by challenging Israeli soldiers and limiting U.S. involvement in the region.

Subsidizing conflict

In that regard, Iran It is a Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps – a branch of Iran’s military, usually known as the “Revolutionary Guard” – to Lebanon Organize and support Lebanese, Palestinian and other militants. In Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, Revolutionary Guardsmen instructed Shiite resistance fighters in religion, revolutionary ideology and guerrilla tactics, and provided weapons, funds, training and encouragement. Iran’s leadership transformed these early trainees from a ragtag band of fighters into Lebanon’s most powerful political and military force today, and Iran’s greatest foreign policy success, Hezbollah.

Since the 1980s Iran The Islamic Republic continues to support antisemitic militant groups and activities. The Islamic Republic has publicly pledged millions The support of millions of dollars annually to groups provides advanced training in military tactics for thousands of Palestinian fighters with the Revolutionary Guard and Hezbollah bases The following are some examples of how to use Iran You can also find out more about the following: Lebanon.

Hezbollah and the Revolutionary Guard are two of the most effective ways to reach out to people. Iran Has encouraged and enabled Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and Hamas violent acts. These Palestinian fighters represent now a vital element in what foreign affairs experts call Iran’s “Axis of Resistance” The United States and Israel are both guilty of terrorism Iran’s chief purpose.

The death tolls in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and other conflicts have escalated steadily Since 2020. Palestinians are angry at the increased number of evictions, destruction of property and how Israel allows Israeli nationalists settlers To violate a longstanding agreement prohibiting Jewish prayer in the Al-Aqsa Mosque – a site holy to both Muslims and Jews. Hamas cited a recent incursion of settlers in Al-Aqsa as justification for its Oct. 7 attack. attack.

Attacking normalization

The following are some of the ways to get in touch with us: is Not to say that Iran ordered Hamas’ attack on Israel is not that Iran controls Palestinian militants – they are not Iranian puppets. Nevertheless, Iran’s leaders welcomed The timing of an attack that works out serendipitously Iran’s favor and plays into the Islamic republic’s regional battle for influence.

“What took place today is in line with the continuation of victories for the anti-Zionist resistance in different fields, including Syria, Lebanon and occupied lands,” According to Iranian foreign ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanani.

Hamas: The Week Before the Hamas attackSaudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman denied reports that Saudi Arabia had paused its recent efforts to normalize relations with Israel, which includes a formal declaration of Israel’s right to exist and increased diplomatic engagement. “Every day we get closer,” Netanyahu has praised the assessment.

Normalization between Israel and Saudi Arabia would be the pinnacle in U.S. diplomats’ efforts to date. the Abraham Accordssigned by Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Morocco in 2020. The accords sought to normalize and build peaceful relations between Israel and Arab countries The Middle East and Africa

Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of Iran lambasted Arab States for signing the Abraham Accords and accusing them “treason against the global Islamic community.”

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah praised Saturday’s violence against Israel and echoed Khamenei’s sentiments, warning that the attacks sent a message, “especially to those seeking normalization with this enemy.”

Israel’s expected heavy-handed response is likely to complicate Saudi Arabia’s normalization with Israel in the near term, furthering Iran’s aims. Netanyahu said that Israel’s retaliatory operation seeks three objectives: eliminate the threat of infiltrators while simultaneously restoring peace to Israeli communities attacked “exact an immense price from the enemy” In Gaza and to reinforce “other fronts so that nobody should mistakenly join this war.” This is the last goal is A subtle, but clear warning for Hezbollah Iran Stay out of the fight.

Israeli troops have already mobilized for the security of its borders. airstrikes have hit Gaza. It is likely that Palestinian attackers would be killed or arrested within a few days. Israeli troops and aircraft will target rocket launch sites, manufacturing, transportation, and storage facilities, as well the homes and offices of Hamas or Palestinian Islamic Jihad. In the process of this, it is likely that hundreds of civilians also die.

I am convinced that Iran All of these things are expected and welcomed.

What is the best way to get in touch with you? Iran You can win

The war has at least three possible endings, which all play a role. Iran’s favor.

First, Israel’s heavy-handed response may turn off Saudi Arabia and other Arab states to U.S.-backed Israeli normalization efforts. Second, if Israel decides to move further into Gaza in order to eliminate the threat, it could trigger another Palestinian uprising either in East Jerusalem or West Bank. This would lead to a wider Israeli response, and more instability.

Israel can achieve its two first objectives using the minimum amount of force, avoiding heavy-handed tactics, and reducing the chances of an escalation. But this is unlikely. Even if it did, we would still need to look at the causes and enabling factors that led to the latest violence. Iran The role that plays in this process has not been addressed.

And when the next round of Israeli-Palestinian violence occurs – and it will – I believe Iran’s leaders will again congratulate themselves for a job well done.
