Iran is getting a taste of its own medicine.
The world’s largest state sponsor of terror is attacked by the world’s leading terror group. Sunni versus shia.
Four gunmen, including a suicide bomber, had opened fire at the shrine of Ayatollah Khomeini Wednesday killing a gardener, and in another attack, four gunmen entered the Iran Parliament complex and opened fire killing a security guard and injuring several others. Meanwhile, one attacker blew himself up inside Iranian Parliament complex, while another suicide bomber blew himself up at the shrine, as per Reuters quoting state media. This was the second suicide bombing at the shrine minutes after a woman had blown herself up after three or four armed assailants stormed the site. Iran’s Intelligence Ministry said members of a third group were arrested before being able to carry out any attack. Iranian officials have not yet confirmed if the two attacks are linked or who was behind the twin attacks. Local Iranian media report that the Presidential building has been locked down and nobody is being allowed to enter or leave the premises.
Amil Imani, an Iranian-born American and pro-democracy activist, writes me this:
The ISIS attacks in Iran were 100% fake, IMHO, orchestrated by the regime. After Trump’s accord with the 50 Muslim nations and singling out Iran as the greatest terror nation in the region, and the Persian Gulf Arabs severing ties to Qatar, Iran needed an excuse to expand military operations and to do a crackdown in their country on the opposition. Typically, I would never jump to the false flag conspiracy theory. However, given that this is the Islamic Republic of Iran we are dealing with, I would not put it past them. Either way, we can expect a massive response by Iran, and they will unleash much of their military, and the IRGC, using this as the pretext. They could even conceivably make a move towards Qatar, in a response to the Saudis and others cutting relations and almost blockading that nation.Folks, this is the Trump effect.The terrorist regime of mullahs are panicking and desperately want to be relevant in the region. They see their demise and they are really panicking. Almost everyone in Iran is talking about another revolt against the terrorist regime of the IRI. It will be interesting to watch. More later.
