On June 12, Major General Hassan Firouzabadi — chairman of Iran’s Joint Chiefs of Staff — stated that the culture of jihad should be developed in Muslim nations which have been experiencing an Islamic awakening:

According to the supreme leader, the Islamic Revolution has given us the culture of jihad as a gift and now jihadists should grant it to other nations.

The senior commander also said that jihadists should not forget about jihad principles if they want to find a place among the poor. He added that jihad culture would actually provide moral support for the people and was an important factor in the victory of the Islamic Revolution, in the sacred defense against Iraq’s war against Iran in the 1980s, and in safeguarding the Islamic Revolution’s values.

I have been outspoken about the fact that the infiltration of jihadists in our society is deep and wide. I learned during my spy activities for the CIA in the Revolutionary Guards how the Guards successfully use mosques, Islamic cultural centers, Islamic student associations, alliances with other Islamic groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, and Muslims from Afghani and Pakistani groups to infiltrate the West and to infect its society.

The radicals in Iran also use assets, such as non-profit organizations in America, in an effort to promote better ties with Iran. These entities warn that taking any harsh action against Iran or attacking the country will cause Iranians to then support the very regime they resent. They further spread their propaganda with repeated arguments such as: “Sanctions hurt the people of Iran, not the government”; the nuclear issue is a matter of national pride; negotiation is the best course because the Iranian regime can help with the U.S.’s problems in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of course, they fail to mention that their true plans are to ultimately destroy America and Israel.

Hassan Abbasi, a longtime top officer of the Guards and a political strategist, stated openly that the duty of Muslims is to create terror and fear in the land of infidels. He emphasized that Islamic agents have identified about 800 sensitive sites within the U.S, and when the time is right their cells will attack those very same locations to create fear, chaos, and instability.

Please, wake up America!
