Myth Three: Iran is a Destabilizing Force in the Middle East and is the World’s Leading State Sponsor of Terrorism

The day after the US imposed the new sanctions on Iran, General Mattis declaredthat “As far as Iran goes, this is the single biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world.” CIA director Mike Pompeo has similarly called Iran “the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism.” And Trump, himself, told Bill O’Reilly that Iran is “the number one terrorist state.”

There is no support for this claim.

Recent attempts to link Iran to terrorism have all been revealed as perjuries

The biggest myth. The leading Middle East sponsors of terrorism are 1. Our friend Saudi Arabia 2. Our friend Israel 3. Our friend Turkey. They support Al Qaeda directly and ISIS particularly in overthrowing Syria and in the case of Turkey using Al Qaeda to kill Kurds. 

The biggest non ME sponsor of terrorism has to send troops to the other side of the planet to kill anything that moves in order to bring peace. It blows up wedding parties,  funeral processions and helps Saudis destroy the poorest country in the ME in order to win hearts and minds.

Be seeing you
