Iranian General Compares Trump to Daesh Leader Al-Baghdadi
Local Editor

A senior Iranian general called the US president the ‘American twin' of Daesh [the Arabic acronym for ‘ISIS/ISIL' terrorist group] leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, responding to rumors that the Trump administration is considering designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guards as terrorists.

Trump - al-Baghdadi

Both Trump and al-Baghdadi display "lack of trust in all principles and regulations of diplomacy and sovereignty in today's world," Brigadier General Rasoul Sanayee Rad, deputy commander for political affairs of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps [IRGC], wrote in an opinion piece quoted by the IRGC outlet Basirat.

One is building a caliphate and the other is invading other countries, the Iranian general argued.

"Using the logic of threat and force in order to advance their objectives, and reliance on their bullying and tyrannical temperament" was another item on Rad's list.

"One of them is propped up by terrorists, and the other by extremist hawks, and both are being used as instruments to trigger chaos and instability," the general continued.

Rad also compared Trump's consideration of designating IRGC as a terrorist organization with Baghdadi's labelling of Iranians as "infidels and disbelievers."

"Trump's historic mistake, too, has prompted the IRGC commander to say that he will regard the US as a follower of [Daesh] in the region if Washington puts the IRGC on its terror list," Rad said.

The Trump administration has not yet designated the IRGC as a terrorist organization but it is reportedly considering the move.

Trump said he may soon de-certify the nuclear deal with Iran, even though his administration officials say Tehran has so far complied with the agreement, brokered by world powers two years ago to make sure Iran does not build nuclear weapons.
