Europe to allow Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps to operate on its territory
Europe is going to allow the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps
to operate on its territory beginning in 2023.
Making matters significantly worse from the Israeli and European Jewish
perspective is Europe’s decision to allow the Army of the Guardians of
the Islamic Revolution, or the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps as
it usually called in the West, broad latitude to operate within the EU
starting in 2023.
“The EU delisting of IRGC military
organizations and personnel is tantamount to a green light for
Iran-sponsored terrorism. Likewise, the EU delisting of IRGC financial,
engineering, construction, energy and transport sector entities
amounts to European approval of the IRGC’s dominance in Iran’s economy,
which equates to the continued repression of the Iranian people by a
regime that just cashed in on temporarily deferring aspects of its
nuclear program,” Ali Alfoneh, an expert on the Revolutionary Guard, and
a fellow a the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, wrote.
media are not paying attention to some of the fine print in the
nuclear agreement that largely affects their citizen’s security as well
as that of Israel institutions across the continent.
noted, “After the nuclear agreement signed last week, the United States
will maintain most of its sanctions on individuals and entities
connected to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, the regime’s
elite forces for external terrorism and domestic repression. The
European Union, however, has chosen a different path: a mass delisting
of the Guards on the date the deal calls ‘Transition Day.’” Europe’s
“Transition Day” is to take place eight years after the agreement has
been formally implemented.
Alfoneh wrote, “barring unforeseen
circumstances [implementation] will occur at some point over the next
three months. On that day, the EU will delist the IRGC, as well as its
Air Force and Missile Command. Most unexpectedly, it will lift nuclear
sanctions on the Quds Force, the IRGC’s external arm tasked with
‘exporting the revolution’ and extending support to terrorist proxies.”
EU is slated to delist Iranian banks such as Ansar and Mehr , which
are under sanctions because of their nuclear proliferation and nuclear
weapons delivery activities. The EU did not object to delisting the
notorious Brig.-Gen. Mohammad Hejazi.
Hejazi is a former commander of the Basij militia, Alfoneh told The Jerusalem Post.
It's time for European Jews to leave the hostile continent. What could go wrong?
