Iran is caught in a Persian paradox. As a fanatical Shiite Muslim regime, the ruling mullahs in Tehran are watching anxiously as an equally fanatical Sunni Muslim terrorist army threatens to overthrow Iran’s Shiite ally in Iraq. However, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, which has put the Iraqi army on the run, is the most effective and deadliest Islamist group today.
