The Many Issues That the FDD Must Facing Regarding Iran Supporting Terror
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. 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. The terror activities that Iran has been doing has been shown to really put some destabilization with the region and has even led to make worst the civil wars that are already happening. 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.
All of these terror plans and terrorism acts are the main reason why the Foundation for Defense of Deomcracies or the FDD has come into the picture. After the 9/11 attack, it was then that the neoconservative group called Foundation for Defense of Democracies or the FDD came to be. 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. At first, the FDD claims to function in combatting militant Islamism with ideologies in the war on a global scale fighting for democracy and their cry for freedom. Today, you can see that what the FDD does is their actions revolve around their mission of being able to defend their democratic values, promote pluralism, and fight off the ideologies that are more supportive of terrorism. 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.
In the present, the FDD and their CEO Mark Dubowitz of FDD make sure to advocate the intervention being put forth by the U.S. military Syria and Iran and other parts of the Middle East. The FDD has been shown to have given their support not just to side with Israel against Palestine but to support the war in Iraq and to make sure that hard policies are set on Iran after the nuclear deal was overturned.
