What the FDD Can Do With Iran Supporting Terror
Iran supporting terror is still visible until this day as keeping such relationships with militant and terrorist groups are crucial to the foreign policies of Iran. With Iran, you are always sure to see it to be standing out as a sponsor in the many big organizations that are part of the Middle East. Until this day, the country still has a lot of power in starting terror acts on an international scale outside of their region. With the destabilization and terrorism efforts of Iran, you can say that the U.S. have found all of them threatening with what interests they have in mind as well as with the allies that they have found in the Middle East. Civil wars have become worsened and have destabilized the region even further with what Iran is doing. Despite the fact that the U.S. homeland is not being actively targeted by Iran’s terrorism, the effect that they have is still latent. Deterring the U.S. and serving as contingency the moment the U.S. decides to attack Iran are the two things that Iran decides to do that is why they are only striking the outside war zones that comprise the U.S. assets.
All of these terror plans and terrorism acts are the main reason why the Foundation for Defense of Deomcracies or the FDD has come into the picture. The FDD or the Foundation for Defense of Democracies was founded as an advocacy organization after the 9/11 attack. The goal of the FDD is to put their efforts on putting up a war on terror and using more pro-Israel policies in the Middle East and in Washington, respectively. At first, the FDD claims to function in combatting militant Islamism with ideologies in the war on a global scale fighting for democracy and their cry for freedom. Now, you can see that the FDD is practicing a more wholesome approach starting with the promotion of pluralism, the fight for ideologies that are pro-terrorism, and the defense of democratic values. Right after 2001 when the EMET was born as an education initiative, the FDD became its successor to serve as support for the response of Israel to their Palestinian Intifada. This was also done to lessen the public outcry with the actions of the Israeli.
Today, the experts of the FDD with the support of their CEO Mark Dubowitz of FDD make sure to be on the front line of being advocates of the intervention of the U.S. military in the Middle East especially in Syria and Iran. The FDD has been shown to have given their support not just to side with Israel against Palestine but to support the war in Iraq and to make sure that hard policies are set on Iran after the nuclear deal was overturned.
