To advance this research, content analysis method has been used and to collect data, filing tools from different sources have been used. The main question of the research is “what are the positions of Francis Fukuyama against the Islamic Republic of Iran and what is the purpose of these positions?” The findings of the study confirm that the intellectual roots of Fukuyama's stance are in the form of a soft confrontation with the Islamic Republic of Iran and stem from Islamophobia.
