If Iran falls, ISIS may rise again

WorldInternational Affairs Iran Isis

The United States for four decades has made little secret of its desire to see Iran’s revolutionary Shiite Islamic Republic fail, something that could now prove a win for Washington’s interests in a region where its policies have more recently been defined by successive setbacks.

Far from bringing peace to the Middle East, however, a significant escalation of demonstrations shaking Iran or any major foreign intervention could end up empowering an even greater enemy—the Islamic State militant group. The organization better known as ISIS rose up years ago from the death and destruction ravaging Iraq and Syria and the jihadis have since sought to tap into movements battling the Iranian government from within, and make good on external forces pushing the country toward implosion.

The Islamic Republic’s enemies both at home and abroad benefit from the current chaos across the country, but even Tehran’s foes fear that the instability could create the conditions for ISIS to breed.

“Different groups hostile to the Iranian government, including ISIS, separatists or other ones, have and will take advantage of any unrest in the country,” Abas Aslani, a visiting scholar at the Istanbul-based, non-profit, non-partisan Center for Middle East Strategic Studies and editor-in-chief of the Tehran-based Iran Front Page private news outlet, told Newsweek.

“Any collapse or weakening of a state in the region is likely to fuel into more instability in the region,” he added. “This is also a concern of even opponents in Iran, in so that they are not sure in the case of the collapse of the current system in the country who will replace them and how the situation will be.”

To Iran, the fight against ISIS was always an existential one. Just as the Pentagon began coordinating its own involvement in June 2014, Iran mobilized mostly Shiite Muslim militias in both Iraq and Syria in order to beat back lightning gains made by the Sunni Muslim insurgents that reveled in the mass slaughter of those deemed to be outside of their ultraconservative ideology.

This proved vital in turning the tide against the jihadis, who have been largely defeated in recent years.

Rodger Shanahan, a research fellow at the Lowy Institute’s West Asia Program and former director of the Australian Army’s Land Warfare Studies Centre, told Newsweek that “Iran was critical in providing logistical and advisory support to Iraqi paramilitary forces who battled ISIS in Iraq, particularly during the early days of the campaign.” As for Syria, he said Iran’s support for President Bashar al-Assad “also meant that it has contributed to the anti-ISIS campaign,” but that “it is fair to say that that was by no means the aim of their support for Assad and the targeting of ISIS has been sporadic at best.”

ISIS’ so-called caliphate has since been destroyed, but special presidential envoy to the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS James Jeffrey estimated in August that there were about 15,000 militants left in Iraq and Syria. The math is fuzzy, as some members are believed to have joined other groups, gone into hiding or fled altogether. Even Jeffrey admitted this figure had “a standard deviation of significant thousands in either direction.”

Despite battlefield losses, the group lives on through deadly sleeper cells and sophisticated media operations that non-stop broadcast propaganda. Tehran too has built a robust system of non-state actors also hostile to Israel, Saudi Arabia and the U.S and, while establishing this so-called Axis of Resistance proved a major strategic victory, it came at a steep price.

Iran’s campaigns cost capital, both human and financial, and increasingly strict U.S. sanctions have choked up Tehran’s access to disposable income. Though the Iranian government is believed to still have access to considerable wealth to run its operations, the dual effects of a U.S.-imposed trade siege and domestic mismanagement have made life more difficult for everyday Iranians unable to capitalize on the economic reforms promised by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

The Rouhani administration’s decision last month to cut gas subsidies and ultimately transition to a welfare-based system had actually been in the works for some time and was supported by the International Monetary Fund. Still, the sudden shift appeared seismic for many Iranians accustomed to cheap fuel and citizens rose up with a rare intensity.

The government’s reaction on the ground was swift and, against what at least officials claimed were rioters, deadly.

Amnesty International has estimated that more than 200 Iranians have been killed during the unrest and Brian Hook, a State Department representative for Iran, placed the casualties at “many hundreds, perhaps over a thousand”—a figure far higher than other estimates provided by human rights monitors. No conclusive count exists and the Iranian government has disputed those numbers.

Some of the fiercest resistance to the crackdown has emerged in Iran’s western Khuzestan province, where Arab separatist groups such as the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz have reported “violent clashes between residents, occupation forces and militias.” While protesters expressed frustrations with the country’s economic situation here, too, another potentially more serious peril loomed: separatist groups in key border areas.

Those groups are “the biggest non-state threat to Iran today,” Ariane Tabatabai, an associate political scientist at the RAND Corporation and an adjunct senior research scholar at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, told Newsweek. The most volatile border areas are Sistan-Baluchistan, Khuzestan and Kurdistan. Watchers worry that any escalation of insurgencies in these parts could propel Iran toward the sectarian strife seen in Syria.

“That’s part of what’s deterring many Iranians from outright pushing for regime collapse: The lessons of Syria loom large,” she added.

Insurgencies were waged by separatist Arab, Baluch and Kurdish militias for decades before ISIS, Al-Qaeda or even the 1979 Islamic Revolution that overthrew the pro-West shah, who long-enjoyed the CIA maintaining his rule. The Islamic Republic has largely managed to keep these restive communities in line, but deadly attacks persist, such as a February car bombing that tore through a military bus, leaving up to 27 members of the Revolutionary Guard dead between the cities of Khash and Zahedan in Sistan and Baluchistan province.

The operation was claimed by Jaish ul-Adl, which along with fellow Sunni Islamist group Ansar Al-Furqan, has taken advantage of previous periods of unrest in an attempt to undermine the Iranian government. ISIS, notorious for its ability to build bridges across continents, has actively sought to exploit these national struggles as it does in countries as far away as the Philippines.

Dina Esfendiary, a fellow at The Century Foundation progressive think tank in New York, told Newsweek, “ISIS has made it clear that fighting the Shia is one of its core objectives, as a result, Iran is a first-order target.”

“ISIS will likely help foment discontent in the areas of Iran with smaller ethnic minority communities,” she added. “This has the same effect as the U.S. stating its support for protestors: allowing the Iranian government to develop the rhetoric that foreigners are instigating the protests, which they use as justification for their crackdown.”

The group’s reach within Iran remains fairly insignificant, Tabatabai added. She too explained, however, that “ISIS has mostly focused its efforts in the areas with significant Kurdish and Arab minority populations—because these are populations that have been historically neglected if not repressed by the central authority.

Shanahan told Newsweek that, from the very beginning, “Iran was concerned at the threat ISIS posed to Iranian territory, and the possibility of support for low-level insurgencies amongst Arab and Baluch Sunni groups inside Iran.”

“They have limited support inside Iran but they may well seek to exploit security agencies’ focus on the protests to undertake some local tactical actions,” he added, noting, however, that the current demonstrations were “about Iranians’ dissatisfaction with the system as a whole, with the lifting of fuel subsidies as the catalyst—it’s not about minority rights.”

Even with limited success in its infiltration, ISIS managed to strike at the heart of the Islamic Republic in June 2017.

Less than two months after ISIS released a Persian-language video, several Sunni Muslim Kurdish militants aligned with the group staged twin attacks on the Iranian parliament and the shrine to the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Eighteen people were killed.

Mayhem erupted again in September with dramatic scenes of civilians taking cover and soldiers carrying bloodied children in Ahvaz. Gunmen opened fire at a Revolutionary Guard parade commemorating the Iran-Iraq War—during which Saddam Hussein too tried to foster Arab separatism in Khuzestan—in an ambush that killed two dozen people, half of them soldiers, and was claimed by both ISIS and Ahvazi Arab separatists.

A week later, the night skies over Iran’s Kermanshah and Kurdistan were illuminated with the flames of Zulfiqar and Qiam missiles as they flew hundreds of miles clear across Iraq and into the eastern Syrian province of Deir Ezzor, an ISIS stronghold at the time under assault by forces backed by Washington and Tehran. The unprecedented strike was seen not only as a message to ISIS, but as a testament of Iran’s missile prowess directed toward its top three national foes.

Iran often blames the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia for fomenting discord within the country in an attempt to overthrow a government they view as destabilizing to the region. No conclusive evidence of such a conspiracy regarding the current demonstrations has emerged, though top Washington figures, such as war hawk former national security adviser John Bolton, have openly courted opposition forces like the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, or Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK) and Ahvazi Arab separatists.

Back in Tehran, journalist Reza Khaasteh said he doesn’t “think protesters agree with such secessionist ideologies, and must be afraid of such groups exploiting their legitimate demands from the government.”

Local university student Kiarash said, for Iranians, “the trauma of the previous ISIS attack on Iran still hangs around in our mind.”

“Whether or not these demonstrations could lead to instability caused by ISIS or separatist groups, the fear of it exists in the public,” he added. “A majority of Iranians are worried that in case of a military conflict with the U.S. or Saudi Arabia, or even in case of a serious turmoil on a domestic level, the situation could lead to instability or even getting attacked by ISIS or other groups.”

We support you and we will continue to stand with you in your struggle for a brighter future for your people and for your great nation.” Saul Loeb/AFP/Getty Images

While Iran has bolstered its border security in recent years, instability to the point of a government retreat could allow ISIS to summon forces from beyond. Séamus Malekafzali, an analyst with the online International Review, told Newsweek that, in the event of a war either international or civil, “I have no doubt in my mind that ISIS would swoop in.”

“I’ve never not doubted anything more in my life,” Malekafzali said, adding that, should ISIS establish a foothold in the porous, mountainous badlands between Iran and its neighbors, “I don’t think America would be able to defeat that group.”

All seven individuals interviewed by Newsweek said they believed the collapse of the Iranian government was unlikely in the near future, despite the “maximum pressure” campaign by the U.S. against it. Even for Washington, this may not necessarily be a bad thing: It has repeatedly learned that an enemy government’s loss of control often had far-reaching repercussions in the form of mass refugee flows, the formation of new, more powerful enemies, and costly military interventions to fight them.

In the leadup to the cardinal example of this, the 2003 invasion of Iraq, then-Secretary of State Colin Powell infamously warned President George W. Bush, “You break it, you own it.” A year later, the U.S. was technically in control of 25 million people, inheriting a war-torn nation from which ISIS would be born, and the following administration still went on to embark on new foreign adventures in Libya and Syria.

The fall of Iran—a nation whose population outsized all three of those war-torn countries combined—would likely have even more devastating side effects and give ISIS and other underground forces new room to operate.

For now, the ISIS threat appears to be under control. But worsening economic woes resulting from U.S. restrictions and political infighting among Iran’s own hard-liners and moderates ensure the militant group will continue to root for, if not actively seek, Iran’s capitulation.

Post Mortem: White Collar Boss on Neal’s Last Con, Alternate Ending

Warning: The following contains spoilers from Thursday’s series finale of White Collar.

White Collar said au revoir on Thursday night with a series finale that just as easily could have been titled “Keep On Chasing.”

After pulling the ultimate con and faking his death, Neal jetted off to Paris. Meanwhile, Peter mourned the loss of his pal for a year until he discovered Neal’s secret storage locker, full of medical research and an article about the Louvre’s upgraded security system. With a small smile, the G-man realized his partner was still alive.

But that wasn’t the ending that creator Jeff Eastin originally had in mind, he reveals below. Instead, he went with a variation pitched by the show’s own stars.

Eastin also talks about the possibility of a TV movie and the finale’s homage to Catch Me If You Can.

TVLINE | I can’t believe you fake-killed Neal!
We spent a long time saying, “Nobody will ever believe we killed Neal.” So we spent quite a while trying to sell it. We figured the moment when Mozzie believes it, maybe the audience will believe it.

TVLINE | When and how did you settle on this particular ending?
I had a different ending [in which] Peter finally released Neal. This was going to be the moment when Neal has to decide what he’s going to do. And so he walked up to the Flatiron building in New York, and he’s tossing a coin. In one version, the coin lands heads, and he goes to the right and he gets in a limo with Mozzie and they go off to be the greatest criminals ever. And then we’re back with Neal, and he’s standing at that same intersection, tosses the coin and it comes up tails and he goes left and he goes to the FBI. We realize it’s a few years later and Neal’s taken over Peter’s job as head of the White Collar Crime division and he’s now an FBI agent and very happy. And then we come back to Neal, and he’s in that same spot. He tosses the coin and just before it lands, we go to black. We never know which choice he finally made. That was the ending that I had settled on from the moment I sold the series. I pitched that ending along with the series to USA six years ago, and it’s one I had planned to stick to.

White Collar Series Finale RecapThen Tim DeKay and Matt Bomer came to me and said, “Hey, look,  we love that ending. It’s awesome. But we’ve got a better idea.” And that was the idea, which is Neal, ultimately, decides to kill himself to save the people he loves. But of course, it’s Neal, so he hasn’t quite done that. Once they pitched me this ending, I said, “You know what? This is so much better.” So that’s how this ending came about.

TVLINE | So it was really a collaborative effort.
Yeah, it really was. And it was nice because the series as a whole has been a collaborative effort between me, Tim and Matt. Ultimately, I think to end it that way was really the right thing to do.

TVLINE | What do you want viewers to take away from those final moments?
The real idea there was the relationship between Peter and Neal, that chase that we started. In the world of White Collar, that pursuit will just continue forever. The moment Peter discovers that [Neal] set the entire thing up, I’m hoping people will go, “OK. Neal tricked us one more time.” Obviously, there’s a playing card inside there to indicate that Mozzie had been there before. So Mozzie will also continue on with Neal. And that, really, Neal’s finally free. The entire series, we’ve tried desperately to get Neal to Paris. We figured that if there’s one place that an art thief needs to be, it’s in Paris. So we’re finally able to do that in the very final moment, which I’ve very, very happy about.

White Collar Series Finale RecapTVLINE | Does the Queen of Hearts card mean Mozzie’s on his way to join Neal?
Yeah, exactly.

TVLINE | Tim DeKay’s smile in that scene is so great. What’s behind Peter’s grin? Is he just glad Neal is alive? Is he excited by the fact that the chase is on again?
Tim DeKay and I had talked about that. When he came to pitch me that final moment, he didn’t have the details or anything. When Peter realizes that Neal is not dead, he’s faked this entire thing, that smile he has at the last moment really is about the chase is on. Because what we’ve established there is Peter has, to a certain extent, settled down. He’s got Elizabeth, and he’s got his son, Neal. He turned into the guy that’s going to leave at six o’clock and not work late. As much as Peter loves that, the thing he loves more, the thing he’s always loved, is the chase. So for Tim, it was that moment when he realizes that the chase is on. As Tim said when he pitched it to me, “The game’s afoot,” and you see him turn and run out of there. That’s what it is. It’s like, “Great, the game’s on. This is going to keep going.”

TVLINE | So Neal’s next target is the Louvre?
The next target is the Louvre, yeah.

TVLINE | You’ve said in the past that a lot of the series has been about Neal struggling with these two different sides of himself and secretly wanting Peter’s life. Are we to assume from this ending that he realized, “I am who I am”?
Yep. Exactly. That after six years, after this long struggle, Neal can decide, “Who am I? Am I the con man? Am I the thief that my father was, my real father? Or am I Peter Burke?” who in his heart became his de facto father. He’s always struggled with that, with that desire. I said before in a couple of interviews that, for me, Neal wants to be good, but he was born bad. This was finally the decision that Neal Caffrey is what he is at his heart and that’s an art thief. That’s just a much more fun ending than deciding that he is good and that he gets the white picket fence.

TVLINE | I couldn’t help but notice that there’s a bit of an open door with this ending. Is there room for continuation? Maybe a TV movie?
You never know. That would be nice. I know the studio is pushing me to try to have viewers mail ties into USA to try to keep the series going. [Laughs]

TVLINE | Not pocket squares?
Pocket squares would be good, too. Somebody had pitched me the “Tie up White Collar” Season 7 pitch. [Laughs] I said, “You know, that’s not a bad idea.” … I think everybody involved would probably be excited about that idea. So I don’t want to rule anything out, but the ending really was for me not necessarily to say, “Hey, let’s go back and do another one,” but really just to say that Peter will always keep chasing Neal and Neal will keep stealing things for as long as people care to wonder.

White Collar Series Finale RecapTVLINE | The scene where Neal is dressed as an airline captain, was that a nod to your original pitch and this being sort of a continuation of Catch Me If You Can?
Yeah. Beyond that, Frank Abagnale, Jr., the real guy [on which the film is based], was a fan of the show. He had been really nice and sent me like a signed poster and things like that and told me how much he liked the show. We were trying very hard to get him to do a cameo in the finale, but the timing didn’t work out with his schedule. So the airline captain was really a nod to Frank Abagnale, Jr., the original Neal.

TVLINE | What are you going to miss most about this show?
The thing I’ll miss most is just that friendship with Matt and Tim and Willie [Garson] and Tiffani [Thiessen]. Everybody was incredibly nice… Matt and Tim, especially, were such incredible leaders on the set. They would come in every day — long standard 12-hour days, sometimes 14, sometimes 16 hours — and to keep up with the level of humor and the fact that I don’t think I ever saw Tim and Matt not smiling between takes. That does so much just for the morale on set. That’s probably the thing that I’ll miss the most. Whenever I would go off to New York, I’d be able to go out there and hang out with these guys. I’ve never laughed so much or had such a good time. I’ll miss that.

And then the other thing is I will miss New York. For six years, it was sort of my home away from home. Now I realize that unless I decide to set another show there, I will really never be back to New York other than as a tourist and that’s going to be different. I know Tim and Willie have said something very similar.

White Collar fans, what did you think of the show’s swang song? Would you have preferred the original ending? How did you react when Neal “died”? Grade the series finale via the poll below, then hit the comments with your thoughts!
