The Europe is following the track of a person, Donald Trump, about whom it has had the most critical views.
Lethal threats, like as espionage and murders, has attempted to persuade Tehran to give up its autonomous security and democratic principles. It makes sense that Iran would place a higher priority on enhancing domestic security than on bolstering its defences or generating foreign deterrence. The involvement of the IRGC is crucial in both situations. Therefore, classifying it as a “terrorist” entity would associate all Iranian efforts at military security and deterrence with “terrorism.”
One of the most powerful anti-terror organisations in the world, the IRGC is aggressively battling terrorists. Therefore, it would be absurd if Europe labelled it a terrorist organisation.
The IRGC’s contribution to the downfall of ISIS and the containment of all of its linked groups is evident, despite the reluctance of Americans and Europeans to acknowledge it. Numerous members of the IRGC rank and file, as well as several of its leaders, lost their lives battling terror in the Middle East.
ISIS was in fact fought off by Iranian commanders, who also contributed to keeping the group from spreading over the area. ISIS was then active in committing additional crimes, and even conducting genocide against some religious and racial minorities.
One of these leaders was previously slain by the US because it saw him as a threat to its hegemonic plans in the area. What would be left of the international bid founded on norms if Europe chose to follow the same course and began to attack Iran’s anti-terror troops and leaders, dubbing them “terrorists”?
An aggressive action like Donald Trump‘s to label a legitimate military unit of a sovereign nation as a “terrorist entity” is only to be anticipated from the most unpredictable and illogical of presidents. It is quite amazing that EU countries are now thinking about adopting a similar strategy.
Tehran’s security is closely related to Europe’s security concerns in the Middle East. Iran is correctly referred to as “important to security in the area” by the Council of the European Union in its decision, which was published on December 22, 2022. It did not fully realize, however, that an unstable Iran would destroy the security framework for the whole region.
Hence, European Union would jeopardize its own strategic interests in the area if it targeted the IRGC, Iran’s primary security force. It would be evident that words cannot compensate for the absence of practical tools for projecting force and battling terrorism in the area.
War hawks who have long advocated for a military confrontation between Tehran and the Western nations would benefit from the EU labelling the IRGC as a “terrorist” organisation. They would interpret this as a first move toward completely breaking Iran’s connections with Europe, which would be detrimental to everyone.
For all parties concerned, classifying the IRGC as a terrorist entity would have a number of unfavorable juridical and geopolitical repercussions. It is firmly believed that communication and dialog are the right course of action in light of this. Finding long-term resolution to differences and erasing misunderstandings need constructive dialogue between Iran and Europe. There is a domino effect of participation. Harassment, in any case, will elicit a corresponding response.
