AIPAC called the IRGC “the principal instrument of the Iranian regime’s policy of international terrorism and regional aggression.”

Leading Jewish and pro-Israel advocacy groups praised the Trump administration on Monday for its decision to designate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization.

“The IRGC has provided support and assistance to terrorist organizations and has fostered instability in the region,” said Arthur Stark, Chairman, and Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice Chairman and CEO of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.
“Clearly, US sanctions on Iran are having an impact, and this additional measure will place added pressure on the regime,” they said.

The group further expressed hope that “other countries will soon follow suit and recognize that the IRGC serves as a destructive and destabilizing force throughout the Middle East and beyond.”

American Jewish Committee CEO David Harris said in a statement that “recognition of the IRGC as a key arm of Iran’s global terrorism strategy is vitally important to the U.S., which first designated Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism in 1984. We applaud President Trump for taking this highly significant step.”

Pro-Israel lobbying group AIPAC also applauded President Trump for the move.

AIPAC called the IRGC “the principal instrument of the Iranian regime’s policy of international terrorism and regional aggression” and noted that it was “responsible for the death of hundreds of American troops in Iraq.”

It also highlighted the IRGC’s role in backing the Assad regime in Syria and aiding the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah.

Former Senator Joseph Lieberman and Ambassador Mark D. Wallace of the watchdog United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) said in a statement: “UANI applauds the Trump Administration’s decision to designate the IRGC as an FTO [foreign terrorist organization]. For years, the United States has listed Hezbollah, Kataib Hezbollah, and the al-Ashtar Brigades as FTOs, but not the main source of those groups’ manpower, materiel, and money: the IRGC.”

They added that “Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, and the IRGC is the primary vehicle through which the regime funds terror organizations and proxies abroad. The IRGC’s designation as the terrorists they are should serve as a major warning to any business investing in Iran and will deny Tehran the financial assistance it needs to realize its hegemonic ambitions,” said Lieberman and Wallace.

Pro-Israel advocacy group Christians United for Israel (CUFI) commented on the news, saying that “in 2017, we welcomed the Treasury Department’s designation of the IRGC for their support of terrorist organizations, and we now welcome the Trump Administration’s designation of the IRGC as an FTO. The Islamic Republic is a theocratic dictatorship and the IRGC is the core source of their power,” CUFI added.

“From subjugating the Iranian people to supporting terrorists and rogue regimes, the IRGC is the backbone of Tehran’s tyranny. We must put maximum pressure on Iran and designating the IRGC as an FTO is a good step in that direction,” said the group.

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon tweeted: “Israel thanks the U.S. for another step to recognize Middle East realities: designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization! The IRGC is the main exporter of Iran’s regional terrorism. The world should follow this example & increase the pressure on Iran!”

AIPAC称IRGC是“伊朗政权的国际恐怖主义和地区侵略政策的主要工具”。

领导犹太人和亲以色列的倡导组织周一称赞特朗普政府决定将伊朗伊斯兰革命卫队(IRGC)指定为恐怖组织。

“IRGC向恐怖组织提供了支持和帮助,并加剧了该地区的不稳定,”主席Arthur Stark和美国主要犹太组织总统会议执行副主席兼首席执行官Malcolm Hoenlein说。

“显然,美国对伊朗的制裁正在产生影响,而这一额外措施将给该政权带来额外压力,”他们说。

该组织进一步表示希望“其他国家将很快效仿,并认识到伊斯兰革命卫队在整个中东及其他地区都是一股破坏性和破坏稳定的力量。”

美国犹太人委员会首席执行官大卫哈里斯在一份声明中表示,“承认伊朗国际恐怖主义战略作为伊朗全球恐怖主义战略的关键部分对于美国至关重要,美国于1984年首次将伊朗指定为恐怖主义的国家支持者。我们赞扬特朗普总统采取这一非常重要的步骤。“

亲以色列游说组织AIPAC也对特朗普总统的举动表示赞赏。

AIPAC称伊斯兰革命卫队“是伊朗政权的国际恐怖主义和地区侵略政策的主要工具”,并指出它“应对伊拉克境内数百名美国军队的死亡负责”。

它还强调了伊斯兰革命卫队在支持叙利亚的阿萨德政权和帮助黎巴嫩恐怖组织真主党方面的作用。

前反对核伊朗(UANI)参议员约瑟夫利伯曼和马克D.华莱士大使在一份声明中说:“UANI赞扬特朗普政府决定将IRGC指定为FTO [外国恐怖组织]。多年来,美国将真主党,Kataib真主党和al-Ashtar旅列为FTO,但不是这些团体的人力,物资和资金的主要来源:IRGC。

他们补充说,“伊朗是世界上恐怖主义的主要国家赞助商,而伊斯兰革命卫队是该政权资助国外恐怖组织和代理人的主要手段。 IRGC被指定为恐怖主义分子应该成为任何投资伊朗的企业的重要警告,并将剥夺德黑兰实现其霸权野心所需的经济援助,“利伯曼和华莱士说。

 亲以色列倡导组织以色列基督徒联盟(CUFI)对这一消息发表评论说:“2017年,我们欢迎财政部指定IRGC支持恐怖组织,我们现在欢迎特朗普政府指定IRGC作为FTO。伊斯兰共和国是一个神权独裁国家,IRGC是其权力的核心来源,“CUFI补充道。

“从征服伊朗人民到支持恐怖分子和流氓政权,伊斯兰革命卫队是德黑兰暴政的支柱。我们必须对伊朗施加最大压力,并指定IRGC作为FTO是向这个方向迈出的一大步,“该组织说。

以色列驻联合国大使Danny Danon在推特上写道:“以色列感谢美国再次承认中东现实:将伊朗革命卫队指定为恐怖组织!伊斯兰革命卫队是伊朗地区恐怖主义的主要出口国。世界应该效仿这个例子,增加对伊朗的压力!“
