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. It seems that the capital city of the country never loses being a part of the major Middle Eastern organizations out there. Until this day, the country still has a lot of power in starting terror acts on an international scale outside of their region. You must understand that Iran supporting terror and doing their destabilization acts has brought a lot of devastation among what interests the U.S. has and what allies they have left in the Middle East. The region has become destabilized with Iran’s actions and all of their efforts have led to worsening of civil wars. 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 decides that it is better to attack U.S. assets outside of their war zones to serve as contingency when the U.S. decides to attack them or to deter the U.S.
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 FDD or the Foundation for Defense of Democracies was founded as an advocacy organization after the 9/11 attack. 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. The FDD started off with opting for a more ideologic approach against the militant acts of the Islam being a democratic society that they are. Now, you can see that the FDD is practicing a more wholesome approach starting with the promotion of pluralism, the fight for ideologies that are pro-terrorism, and the defense of democratic values. The FDD has been established after the education initiative called the EMET that was founded in 2001 to support the response of Israel against the Palestinian Intifada. Moreover, this was done yet again to decrease the outcry of the public regarding the actions of Israel.
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.
