What if the statue of fear is broken?


The attack on Israel by Iran is a move towards breaking the fear barrier. Increasing tensions in the Middle East are definitely detrimental to the region, but it is important to view different opinions on this matter with nuance.

The first perspective is to analyze the damage caused by this attack and who benefited from it. It is evident that retaliation was taken for the attacks on the consulate house. The success of this current attack will be interpreted in the context of the country’s internal political situation and its success in external affairs as well, and this was certainly the intended purpose.

During this attack, an extremely cautious response was given by using low-cost drones and missiles. It is important to note that if a country attempting to acquire a hidden nuclear power had relied on that power and sent warhead missiles to that power (foolishly), then the desired land would not have been occupied and the airspace would have been rendered useless, potentially causing immense damage. Any region where this attempt is thwarted is heading towards destruction, and the attacking party at that time would not want to face isolation and difficulties in the diplomatic realm. Therefore, the retaliating party undoubtedly used this attack for scoring points and equalizing in the field.

Success can also be attributed to the fact that while condemnation was expressed, missiles, and even a Shirley’s wrath, could be directed towards the opposing party. Before this attack, there were two opinions in the Islamic world that the Persian Gulf region prioritized its interests through proxy wars, but after this attack, it has certainly increased its prestige in the Islamic world.

An astonishing effect now emerging is that people are applauding this action by ignoring religious divisions. Another significant point is the helplessness of stakeholders. All Islamic countries in the Middle East stand at a zero-point diplomatically. They do not start their score due to a negative attitude lingering in their hearts and are more focused on stirring up bad thoughts than preferring unity in 56 Islamic countries, which has been sidelined, causing the Persian Gulf region to separate. After publicizing the verbal declaration from the Persian Gulf region, practical steps have now enhanced its dignity in the Islamic world.

The fundamental loss suffered by the second party is that a fear atmosphere prevailed in the region. Some anxieties arising from this attack are certainly beginning to surface. Those aiding in breaking the fear barrier are surely attempting a collaboration. The consequences of breaking this iconic fear figure will undoubtedly resonate through the Middle East region, with Lebanon’s comical militant groups, Yemen’s high-profile figures, and elements supporting the Persian Gulf region from Syria and Iraq unequivocally working towards dismantling this fear figure. If this attack on the Persian Gulf region resolves the fear prevalent in the Middle East in the upcoming times, Sam’s uncle will not only need to contemplate this but will also have to put an end to the prevailing oppression and injustice in the holy land well before that moment arrives.

In this entire scenario, what the second party fundamentally lost is that a fear icon prevailed. From this one attack, undoubtedly some careful musings will begin to emerge. If the complete fear does not fade away, then at least a slight mark has definitely emerged from this blow. Lebanon busy with action, Yemen with heads bowed, actors from Syria and Iraq supporting the Persian Gulf region are surely working towards breaking the fear barrier. As for the consequences when this fear figure collapses, Sam’s uncle will not only need to consider this but will also have to prevent the ongoing oppression and injustice on the first qibla land before that moment arrives. Otherwise, once this fear figure collapses, they will be overcome by the lure of their existence, and this attack on the Persian Gulf region could indeed be the first drop of rain.
