The oppressive and discriminatory policies of the Islamic Republic in Iran and its meddling and destructive role in the Middle East are interlinked and cannot be separated from each other since its domestic and foreign policies are based on the regime’s ideology and will remain so in the future.

The United States State Department describes Iran as an “active state sponsor of terrorism.”US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice elaborated stating, "Iran has been the country that has been in many ways a kind of central banker for terrorism in important regions like Lebanon through Hezbollah in the Middle East, in the Palestinian Territories, and we have deep concerns about what Iran is doing in the south of Iraq.

d qasmlwIran as a sovereign nation-state has historically resorted to assimilatory policies when dealing with its diverse ethnic population. Historically speaking, the dominant mode of governance in both the Pahlavi Dynasty and the current Islamic regime has been oppression, marginalization and assimilation. This has led to widespread differences between the dominant Persian and non-Persian communities and regions. Consequently, dominant forms of socioeconomic, cultural and societal development, access to resources and economic opportunities, educational system etc. is much more visible and dominant in the Persian regions. While underdevelopment, weak economic infrastructure, widespread poverty, unequal access to national resources, educational and political system is rampant among non-ethnic Persian.
