Europe’s Recent Brush With Iranian Terrorism — A Wake-Up Call For Governments And Press?
The Daily Caller ^ | 10-2-1018 | Kenneth Maginnis

Posted on 10/02/2018 6:57:23 AM PDT by blam

This is the reality: A career diplomat crossing European borders in a rented car while carrying a professionally-made bomb, which bears a design favored by jihadists. In Luxembourg, he hands over the bomb to two would-be terrorists, long-standing residents of Europe who just look like any ordinary young married couple.

They accept it with a clear mission in mind: to bomb a political rally in the largest convention center in France, located in the suburbs of Paris.

If the plot is successful, it will kill many among the tens of thousands of people in attendance, among who were hundreds of dignitaries and parliamentarians from the United States, Europe and the Middle East.

The couple put the bomb in the trunk of their Mercedes and the woman hides the detonator in her make-up bag. They head off toward the rally.

This may sound like the opening sequence of the latest James Bond film, but the chilling reality is that this really occurred in June. The explosives expert who doubled as a career diplomat is a real person called Assadollah Assadi — he is presently detained in Germany while the recipients of his bomb and one other operative are in jail in Belgium.

With the prospective bombers having been stopped by Belgian authorities at the French border and the bomb being harmlessly detonated by special army units, this incident had a fortunately happy ending, but…

Assadi himself narrowly failed to escape back to Austria, where he enjoys diplomatic immunity in line with his multiple years of work in the Iranian embassy. Consequently, it appears likely that he may face justice for his attempts to facilitate the mass killing of Iranian expatriates and their Western supporters.

The Europeans are beyond reason and redemption. They will desperately cling to their self destructive globalist and socialist narrative.

Maybe someone should tell the Europeans that Iranians named their country “Iran” because they identified with the Arian race. Maybe categorizing Iranians as “white people” will make it okay to stop their terrorist attacks.

Politically, Europe is a rotting corpse, I'd say it will take quite a few wake-up calls...

Justice in Germany?

Really?

A slap on the wrist, maybe. But I seriously doubt Germany has the nutsack to do more than that.
