Since the beginning, Islamic Republic of Iran, according to its essential ideological principles and with the sanctioned support of its Constitution, has always sought material and spiritual aid to Islamic resistance and liberation movements; and has consequently incurred many costs in this direction. The successes of the Lebanese Islamic Resistance against the Zionist regime, the formation of a popular mobilization in Iraq to confront the terrorist group ISIS, the intellectual and political growth of the West Asian nations in recent years; regional demands tied to ideals such as independence, justice, and Islamism; dealing with interventionist powers; as well as the rise of the Islamic awakening of the oppressed people in countries such as Bahrain, Yemen, Palestine, Syria, etc.; have all provided a critical opportunity to throughly analyze the emergence of the resistance front and its reasons.This study discusses intellectual foundations in the field of foreign policy, and examines the components of this front, from the perspective of strategic foresight and its related tools. By employing strategic foresight methods, through environmental scanning, the phenomena and issues related to emergence of the resistance front have been identified, and priorities of these issues have been categorized. Finally, by utilizing cross impact analysis method and MicMac software, key factors and their direct and indirect effects of assessment are evaluated. Hence, the most important issues related to the emergence of the resistance axis are investigated.
