Iran's Race for Regional Supremacy: Strategic Implications for the Middle East
Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA),
This study argues that the major cause of instability in the Middle East is not only a result of Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but is also due to Iran's use of terror groups, such as Hamas, and the development of a nuclear weapons program as a means to achieve regional supremacy. The study urges the Western powers to take action in an urgent, yet coordinated, manner in order to prevent Iran from becoming regionally dominant. Western powers should be especially wary of the Hamas movement as its motives, while geared towards the Palestinian struggle, can be pan-Islamist in scope, and therefore more dangerous.
