The waves of back-to-back crises are reaching the coasts of the Iranian regime, with no stopping in sight. The economic dead-end, administrative corruption and explosive unrest and dissent in a society of 80-million, with a foreign policy engulfed in a nuclear calamity, its puppet Nouri Maliki being set aside from the Iraqi Prime Ministry and the possible fall of Bashar Assad in Syria, have all rallied to target the heart of the mullahs’ dictatorship in Tehran.

As a result of geopolitical changes following the formation of an international coalition in the region against ISIS and Fundamentalism, finally it has pinpointed the Iranian regime as the main sponsor of terrorism and fundamentalist militants in the region.

Gatestone Institute: The horrors perpetrated by ISIS, captured on camera and propagated through social media, distract the West from the threat posed by the Iran and its proxies. Iran's attempts to woo British Shi'ites should not be dismissed, but monitored and fought. Iran and ISIS are two sides of the same coin.

AP: Sudan announced Tuesday it closed the Iranian cultural center in the capital and other branches, saying the establishment violated its mandate and became a social and ideological threat to the largely Sunni country. The official statement by Foreign Ministry spokesman Youssef al-Kordofani came a day after local media reported the Iranian center was shut in the capital, Khartoum.

The Guardian: When Israel stepped up Operation Protective Edge in Gaza in July, a crew of hackers going under the name of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Cyber Fighters readied their attack tools to show support for their Palestinian brothers. They attempted to flood a core piece of Israel’s internet infrastructure, the Domain Name System that acts as the web’s phone book for the country. 

Today's Zaman: Operatives of a secretive Iran-backed terrorist network in Turkey scouted the area hosting a radar site in Malatya's Kürecik district that is part of a NATO early warning radar system, an ongoing investigation has revealed. According to an 854-page police investigation on the Tawhid-Salam terror network obtained by Today's Zaman, suspects tied to Iranian intelligence had collected information about Kürecik.
