Example text

For a broader understanding of Shia egalitarianism and outlook on world politics, one may reflect upon the idealist school of thought in international relations which arose between the two world wars, and the World Order Model which appeared in the early 1970s. Both of these political frameworks evolved as alternatives to political realism in two different international environments where realism was considered crippled and ineffective in maintaining order and justice. The Islamic elite of revolutionary Iran also presented an alternative to political realism in its foreign policy approach, but within a completely different ideological perspective than the idealist school and the World Order Model.

Islamic revival, or a return to Islam, has been a dominant theme of Iranian foreign policy toward the Arab world. Since Islam does not believe in the separation of politics from religion, it insists on the establishment of religious-oriented political systems. Iranian foreign policy in the aftermath of the revolution presented Islam as a viable alternative to capitalism, socialism and, within the region, to Arab nationalism. In a world of 'isms', the Islamic Revolution had the purpose of revising the 'ism' of the Muslims, namely, Islam.

The eradication of evil and the sources of all 'crimes on earth against God and Islam' and the punishment of a tyrant in this life in order to spare him an even greater punishment in the hereafter remained constant themes of Khomeini's war policies. It would be an oversimplification, however, to analyse the Iran-Iraq war solely from either pan-Arab or Islamic perspectives. On both sides, issues of domestic and power politics, and of regional political hegemony were involved.
