Iran is one of 3 nations in the world which rules exclusively by Shariah. Given that, it is certainly no coincidence that Iran is the world’s foremost state sponsor of Jihadist terrorism and a country with a truly dismal human rights record.
Iran has close ties to Hezbollah, HAMAS and Al Qaeda, the three most prominent Jihadist terrorist organizations in the world. It has armed, trained, funded and housed all of them to one degree or another.
Since the Islamic revolution of 1978, Iran also has a history of religious persecution of non-Muslims (which is encoded in Shariah law) and women (again, as required by Shariah law).
At this point, I should also mention that the largest Shariah-Compliant financial institutions in the world are in fact Iranian state-run banks.
Today, the Center for Security Policy has just published a brand new Occasional Paper on Iran. This report, written by Clare Lopez, is different than just about any other report written on Iran in that it focuses on Iran’s active attempts to infiltrate American government and run influence operations through front groups here in America. Many of these groups would like nothing more than to see Shariah come to our shores.
