Across several cities worldwide, thousands of people have taken to the streets in a show of solidarity with the people of Gaza, fervently calling for an end to the devastating war and the resulting atrocities.

While the Iranian regime’s propaganda machine strives to position itself as the ‘main leader of the Islamic world’, it is unmistakable that the outrage over this war, in which the people of Gaza are currently enduring immense suffering, is primarily directed at the Iranian regime, the architect and sponsor of the conflict.

One must closely examine the political rhetoric of the regime’s foreign minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, concerning the ongoing war, rhetoric that lays bare the Mullahs’ direct and criminal involvement in perpetuating this destructive conflict that harms both the Iranian and Palestinian people.

On October 16, Amir-Abdollahian, in a state TV report, declared, ‘If we don’t defend Gaza today, tomorrow we have to defend against these bombs in children’s hospitals in our own cities.’

The question that arises is: who does ‘we’ refer to here? Why is he speaking about ‘defense in the cities’ of Iran? It’s abundantly clear that this ‘we’ points to the Mullahs’ regime, which is resorting to any possible, even criminal, means to safeguard its grip on power and thwart its overthrow.

History teaches us that the regime’s strategists employed a similar approach during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to divert international attention from the root problem in the Middle East—the epicenter of global terrorism.

Amir-Abdollahian’s reference to Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the terrorist organization Hezbollah, who shares the same narrative, sheds light on the underlying crisis in the Middle East. He added, ‘Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah had a very accurate interpretation;

He said that if today we do not take preemptive action as Hezbollah in Lebanon, if necessary tomorrow we will have to fight in Beirut with the Zionist regime and the agents of Israel and the Israeli military.’

These statements reveal the responsibility of individuals in the warmongering that’s fomenting religious conflict among Muslims, Jews, and Christians. It’s worth noting that Khamenei’s and Amir-Abdollahian’s remarks about establishing war fronts in other countries imply that the Quds Force and the regime’s proxies are causing loss of life in these nations.

The expenditure of billions of dollars, borne by the Iranian people, and the countless crimes against humanity in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, and Yemen all serve to preserve the regime’s existence.

The majority of Iranians concur that the regime, out of fear of popular anger and revolt, is exporting the conflict to other countries, particularly Muslim nations, underscoring the question of why they so enthusiastically welcome war despite its devastating consequences.

Javad Mozafar, a former regime official, recently remarked, ‘The only party that welcomed the start of the [Iran-Iraq, 1980-1988] war and celebrated its anniversaries was us.’

As such, similar statements can be found in the speeches of almost all regime officials and their supporters, mirroring the regime’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, who is drumming up support for an expanded war. He proclaims, ‘No one can stop the resistance groups from expanding the war!’

Doesn’t this phrase harken back to Khomeini’s ‘war is a blessing’ rhetoric during the Iran-Iraq war, promoting the slogan for a crusade war to ‘conquer Quds through Karbala’?

The patriotic, and humanitarian responsibility of every honorable Iranian compels us to expose the regime’s malign intentions.

By revisiting the history of the wars in the Middle East over the last four decades, it’s clear that the main beneficiary and winner has consistently been the Iranian regime. Hence, the Iranian people have every right to resist this regime by any means necessary, to eliminate the main ‘tumor’ from the Middle East.
