Dropping IRGC from Blacklist Would Be Boon for Terrorism

(Israel Hayom) Jacob Nagel and Meir Ben-Shabbat - A U.S. decision to remove Iran's Revolutionary Guards from its foreign terrorist organization blacklist would not only be a distortion of truth, but also an American show of surrender to Iran and a reward to the main perpetrator of terrorism. It will also be a blow to Israel and America's other allies in the region who deal with destructive terrorist plots daily, courtesy of the Revolutionary Guards. The Revolutionary Guards was founded in 1979 by Ayatollah Khomeini as a counterweight to the Iranian military which he did not trust because of the American education its senior commanders had received. It operates as a parallel military. The Revolutionary Guards serves as the main means of ensuring the survival of the ayatollah regime and to achieve its vision to establish Iranian hegemony in the region and spread the Islamic Revolution throughout the world. Brig.-Gen. (res.) Professor Jacob Nagel, a former Israeli national security adviser, is a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. Meir Ben-Shabbat, a visiting senior research fellow at the Institute for National Security Studies, served as Israel's national security adviser and head of the National Security Council.
