To the Streets of Tel Aviv, Europe, and the US

British Embassy attacked in Tehran Tehran continues to issue threats against Israel. A member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee on November 8 said that if the Jewish state attacks the Islamic Republic, “Iranian soldiers would fight Zionist soldiers on the streets of Tel Aviv and expel them from Palestine,” Fars news agency reported. Hossein Naqavi further warned that “Iranian forces will fiercely fight its enemies on the continents of Europe and America, if need be.”

Also on November 8, Revolutionary Guard Chief Yadullah Javani warned Israel that if it attacks Iranian soil, “It will inch closer to its own demise. If the Zionist regime makes that mistake, it will determine its own final days. The Islamic Republic is a powerful country that can protect its sovereignty around the world, and especially in the Middle East,” he said.

Javani also hinted that in case of an attack, Iran will mobilize support from Hizbullah and other terror organizations, saying that Tehran has “the means to give the Zionist regime a crushing response from proximate locations.”

In an interview with Fars, the Revolutionary Guard general noted that “Israel always threatens Iran, but never takes action.” Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Wahidi also commented on the high tension between the countries, saying “Israel's threats are nothing but media propaganda that stems from internal disputes. We are prepared for any military confrontation,” he said.

To the UK

William Hague One day after a mob attacked British Embassy compounds in Tehran [in November], the UK accused the Iranian regime of being complicit in the demonstrations and subsequently ordered the closure of the Iranian Embassy in London. Foreign Secretary William Hague, in comments to the House of Commons, said most of the demonstrators were from an organization “controlled by elements of the Iranian regime.”

“Iran is a country where opposition leaders are under house arrest, more than 500 people have been executed so far this year, and where genuine protest is ruthlessly stamped on. The idea that the Iranian authorities could not have protected our embassy or that this assault could have taken place without some degree of regime consent is fanciful. If any country makes it impossible for us to operate on their soil, they cannot expect to have a functioning embassy here.

Iranian Embassy, London “As a permanent member of the UN Security Council and a leading member of the EU, we are proud of the role our country plays in maintaining international peace and security and standing up for human rights all over the world. If the Iranian government thinks we will be diverted from these responsibilities by the intimidation of our Embassy staff, they will be making a serious mistake.”
