Kuwaiti Columnist Calls for Arming Iranian Minority Groups Against ‘Fascist’ Regime

A columnist for Kuwaiti government newspaper Al Watan on Sunday called for the arming of Iranian minority groups to confront the Iranian regime.

Columnist Abdullah Al-Hadlaq – a staunch critic of Iran and its meddling in Gulf countries – said Arab nations needed to bring their confrontation with their powerful Persian neighbor to the north “into their own home, financing and arming non-Persian ethnic groups, such as the Arab minority in southeastern Ahvaz, the Baluchi people (up to 2 million people or about 2% of the Iranian population), Iranian Turkmen, who live mostly in northern and northeastern Iran, Iranian Armenians and Iranian Azerbaijanis – Hadlaq does not mention the 12-million strong Kurdish minority group, concentrated mostly near the border with Turkey and Iraq.

He called on these groups to rise up and overthrow what he called the “fascist” regime in Tehran and “turn Iran into a democratic country that respects human rights and the dignity of Iranian people.”

He concluded by demanding Iran respect the sovereignty of its neighbors too, many of which have accused Tehran and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard of exporting the “Islamic Revolution” through violent proxies in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia – among other countries.

Hadlaq noted a 2012 court case in which an Iranian spy circuit was discovered to have been collecting information on Kuwaiti and U.S. military installations, as well as the Gulf nation’s lucrative oil infrastructure in the north of the country.
