The prevailing narrative in the West is that Shiite-Iran and Sunni-ISIS are mortal enemies. Based on this premise, many believe that America and the West ought to partner with Iran to confront the Islamic State, or at least give Tehran license to do what is necessary in the Middle East to destroy the terrorist group. But what if Iran and ISIS are not the enemies many believe? On today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show, columnist Brad Macdonald [sic.] explores the horrifying reality of the situation: that Iran was largely responsible for the rise of ISIS, that Iran benefits from the Islamic State’s activities, and that, prophetically, Iran and ISIS are on the same team. (Brad MacDonald, Iran and ISIS--Friends or Foes?, Trumpet Daily, April 20, 2016.)It is an attempt to justify PCG's demonization of Iran. PCG's leaders are frustrated that so many people have rallied to oppose ISIL that it is now harder to justify PCG's demonization of Iran. It is less marketable. PCG's leaders are squirming that scare mongering about Iran simply cannot attract the audience that it used to.
Back in 1994 PCG's leader, Gerald Flurry, dogmatically proclaimed Iran to rise as the "King of the South." This incentivizes PCG to demonize Iran in order to "prove" that Gerald Flurry can see the future. That is why PCG's leaders keep downplaying ISIL in order to scare monger about Iran. But the real world refuses to follow Gerald Flurry's script.
MacDonald also congratulates Queen Elizabeth II on the occasion of her ninetieth birthday contradicting PCG's ban on birthdays inherited from HWA. Why is it fine to congratulate the Queen for her birthday and yet they forbid among themselves the celebration of birthdays?
Also the latest broadcast of the Trumpet Hour contains discussions about the situation in Libya and the revelations of The Assad Files as recently highlighted in The New Yorker. There is also a segment that vilifies transgender people once again.
