... Phares said, "This policy has been practiced by the regime since its inception: They put the ideological war doctrine ahead of their people's daily life's interest."

He argued that one cause of the 2009 uprising was middle-class anger against the regime's support of Hezbollah and Hamas. Phares said history repeated itself again when "Tehran's ruling elite gave priority to funding external interventions in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen, over the well being of Iranian civil society. This led to the protests of this year."

The report concludes that any future deals with Iran will strengthen the clerical regime and its armed entity, the IRGC. The report ends by recommending that to, "order to eliminate the dictatorship's machinery of war and suppression, all of the regime's officials, the IRGC and the array of economic organizations and institutions in their orbit of influence must be placed under international sanctions."
