Iran Reaffirms Palestinian Terrorism

Last week, Iran's Supreme Leader - the very same leader with which world powers made an ill-advised nuclear deal last year - met with the head of the Palestinian terror group, Islamic Jihad. Commentary's Michael Rubin writes about how this partnership demonstrates the Islamic Republic's embrace of terror:

Despite the notion that Iran’s interference in the region—Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon—is motivated by sectarian concerns, the reality is that it goes broader. Palestinian Islamic Jihad, after all, is a Sunni organization. It is also a creation of the Islamic Republic of Iran...

Also important is Khamenei’s condemnation of the previous treaties—most prominently the Oslo Accords—which today shape the Middle Eastern order. This violent opposition to the Middle East Peace Process is one of the reasons why there was bipartisan suspicion of the Islamic Republic from the Carter administration through the George W. Bush administration. If Khamenei is willing to advocate proxy terrorists work to scrap some treaties, why the assumption that he plans to abide by nuclear deals?

Lastly, the embrace of Palestinian Islamic Jihad is a deliberate provocation to American victims of terror...

Khamenei’s embrace of Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s leader is a sign that the Islamic Republic reaffirms terrorism...
