Iran is now behaving like another Israel but much larger and even more ambitious and expansionist; it is hell-bent on re-drawing the borders of its neighbouring countries, deciding the limits of their sovereignty, fabricating and imposing their leaders and then lecturing about ‘human rights’, defining ‘terrorism’ the way it pleases, expropriating Islam and offering its ‘services’ to world powers as a regional client.

On the response to Iranian expansion since 2011
With the Arab peoples rising up in 2011, the region saw different kinds of reactions to Iranian expansion. One of the important factors that exposed the Arab popular protest movement to setbacks is the same factor that helped Iran get rid of the predicament brought about by the Arab uprisings, and helped Iran appear to be on the same side as the international consensus: religious extremism, represented by Salafist-Jihadism.
