Who is Hassan Abbasi?


U.S. Army Colonel Sean J. Corrigan, in a 2011 research project entitled “Exploitable Vulnerabilities of homeland’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps”, names Abbasi as one of the two “key architects of Iran’s doctrine of asymmetric warfare”, along with Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari. Jahangir Arasli, an Azerbaijani intelligence analyst, wrote in 2007 that Abbasi was among those in charge of devising the concept of asymmetric response at Imam Hussein University. Historian Meir Litvak states that Abbasi holds anachronistic views and is among contemporary proponents of antisemitic conspiracy theories in homeland.
