Iranian Official Threatens Terror Attacks in London

The head of the Europe and US Department in the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Wahid Karimi, has suggested that Iran should target London in order to deter the US from attacking Iran. "The most appropriate means of deterrence that Iran has, in addition to retaliatory operation in the [Gulf] region, is to take action against London," the Iranian official said. [1]Furthermore, Seyed Safavi, head of the Research Institute of Strategic Studies in Tehran and advisor to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, warned foreign diplomats in London that a preemptive strike on Israel was being lobbied as an option in order to neutralize any Israeli attempt to bomb Iran’s alleged nuclear facilities. [2]The world powers have been pushing for diplomatic efforts to persuade Iran to stop its uranium enrichment program. But they know diplomacy may fail.

The tone in the war of words is sharpening and these words are taken seriously. [3] Claude Moniquet, Director of the European Strategic Intelligence and Security Center said that: "We have serious signals that something is under preparation in Europe… Iranian intelligence is working extremely hard to prepare its people and to prepare actions." He added that there is evidence of increased numbers of Iranian agents at work in Europe, possibly planning to target "British citizens on the streets of London." [4]Iran is recognized as the world’s leading state sponsor of international terrorism. Hizballah – "Party of God" – was established by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps [5] (IRGC) and receives substantial amounts of financial, training, weapons, explosives, politic, diplomatic and organizational aid from Iran. [6] Since 1984, Iran has created branches of Hizballah in more than 20 countries. [7] Besides its support for Hizballah in Lebanon, Iran has strong ties to Hamas, the main Islamist movement in the Palestinian territories as well as to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). [8]Numerous UN resolutions (1835 [9] (September 2008), 1803 [10] (March 2008), 1747 [11] (March 2007), 1737 [12] (December 2006), 1696 [13] (July 2006)), repeatedly imposed sanctions by the EU [14] and the latest IAEA report [15] (September 2008) demonstrate Iran’s non-compliance with international actions regarding its nuclear program.Hezbollah & Iran: A Convergence of InterestsTimeline: Iran’s nuclear program

A note from Radarsite: Thank you Debbie once again for another excellent, if deeply disturbing, article. We do seem to be moving closer and closer to some kind of a major event. Confrontation with Iran seems more and more inevitable. And as warnings such as this one prove, it's not all just about us, is it? It's not all just about who we elect as President. It's not just all about what the United States does or doesn't do in this GWOT. This should be a loud and clear warning to all -- especially to all those liberal multiculturalists who have bought into the propaganda that everything is our fault, that it's all about us.
What it's all about is Islam. Islam declared war on the Judeo/Christian west and our delusional liberals have purposefully ignored this declaration. And unless we somehow defeat these delusional liberals this November, their adamant refusal to protect us could mean our downfall. - rg


  1. GR,

    Yesterday I left you some encouraging words from our cousins across the pond. You may have seen me around the web as,

    Archimedes, give me a place to...

    When I try to post on Radarsite it won't acknowledge it, something that I've not had problem with on other sites.

    Anyways I thought I'd pass this along with a salute to work you're doing here.

    Prepare to smile!

  2. To Anonymous/Archimedes:

    I have no idea why you might have had a problem posting comments here before, but I see no reason not to post this one.
    The article you refer to is by my good friend and fellow blogger Snooper. Unless this is some form of obscure attack on either him or myself, you are certainly welcome to post comments here.
    However, in the future I hope they make more sense.

  3. Sorry Deb, too late. I've already won the Pulitzer Prize with it.

  4. Let's see, an attack in London or Iran obtaining nuclear capability and dropping nukes wherever they want.....hmmmmmm......gee, Iran already thinks it can call the shots without the nukes - just imagine the shots they will call if they get the nukes.
