Iran’s olympian sharpshooter honed his craft during Syria’s civil war — where civilians, mostly women and children, were often put in the crosshairs of live bullets. He shouldn’t be rewarded… this year, it took but one day for the IOC to once again dim the Olympic flame. The event that took place on the medal podium is so outrageous, so despicable, that the IOC itself should immediately revoke the gold medal awarded to Iranian Olympian Javad Foroughi. Then they should urge the Japanese authorities to demand Interpol issue a warrant for the man’s arrest. When Foroughi knocked off his competitors to win the gold in air pistol shooting he caught the attention of activists, including us, around the world. It was a dystopian moment. What most viewers did not know is how Foroughi refined his exquisite and unmatched skill set. Like other members of the Basij militia, a US-designated foreign terrorist group affiliated with Iran’s International Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Foroughi honed his craft during Syria’s civil war — where Syrian civilians, mostly women and children, were often, and intentionally, put in the crosshairs of live bullets.
