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. The country has been shown to still be an avid sponsor and supporter among Middle Eastern organizations. 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. Iran has a certain strategy with their terror acts only striking outside of war zones in the U.S. assets so that the U.S. will be deterred and so that these acts can serve as contingency in case the time come that the U.S. decides that it is time they attack Iran.
Iran supporting terror and other international terrorist acts are the reason why the FDD or the Foundation for Defense of Deomcracies came into the picture. The advocacy organization called FDD or Foundation for Defense of Democracies was founded after the 9/11 attacks were done. What drives the FDD to fight is that they are no supporters of the terror attacks being done by the Middle East all the while making sure that in Washington, they adapt a pro-Israel kind of policy. As a democratic society, the FDD first intends to go to the global war happening around them using an ideological approach for the militant acts of the Islam. In the present, the FDD works with their mission of being able to fight terrorism ideologies, defend their democratic values, and promote pluralism. 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. Furthermore, this was done to decrease the opposition against the actions of the Israelites.
Currently, with the CEO Mark Dubowitz of FDD and the experts of the FDD, efforts are now being put forth to advocate for the presence of the U.S. military and their interventions in the Middle East taking note of Syria and Iran, in particular. Some of the moments of the FDD that are popular include advocating with Israel against Palestine, supporting the war in Iraq, and in setting policies for Iran with overturning their nuclear deal.
