Tell Priti Patel to BAN Iran’s Revolutionary Guards

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is a terrorist organisation that has NOT yet been banned by the UK government.

There is no excuse, which is why we’re asking the Home Secretary to act without delay.

The IRGC is central to Iran’s destabilising role across the Middle East and has been used by the Iranian state to conduct terrorist attacks, hostage-taking and assassinations that remain a constant threat to Israel and the West. It has a notorious mandate to “liberate Palestine” by destroying Israel, which Iran calls the “Zionist regime” and a “cancerous tumour” that must be “eradicated”.

This should be enough for the UK, a trusted ally of Israel, to proscribe the IRGC. But closer to home, the militia group is also a threat to UK citizens, the British Jewish community and others with connections to Israel. The IRGC has been responsible for terror plots targeting British citizens, stockpiling explosives in London and other European cities, and for attacks on British troops overseas.

It supports, arms, trains and funds other terrorist organisations that the UK has already banned, such as Hezbollah and Hamas. So, what is stopping the UK from banning the IRGC?

Proscribing the IRGC is not only consistent with government policy, it would make clear to the Iranian regime that their malicious activities are unacceptable.

Please take a moment to send an email using our suggested wording (with Cc to your MP). It only takes a few minutes and your participation continues the wave of pro-Israel advocacy that is pushing the UK towards taking a firmer stand with Israel.
