The US administration, it seems, is completely out of its mind when it floats the fake reports that Iran, in vengeance for the murder of General Qassem Soleimani, is planning to assassinate one of its ambassadors, and that too a lady named Lana Marks who is based in Pretoria, the capital of South Africa.
What a joke! Does Washington think that the sacred blood of Martyr Soleimani could be avenged by killing an innocent soul not involved in the dastardly January 3 attack on Baghdad airport that targeted two of the most prominent anti-terrorist icons of Iran and Iraq (Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis), just because she happens to be an American diplomat?
The Iranian foreign ministry has dismissed the claim as yet another clumsy US attempt to fuel Iranophobia, as part of Donald Trump’s wild plans to fool the American voters – or more properly the arbitral Electoral College – into giving him another 4-year term in the White House.
Perhaps, Trump and his team of terrorists have singled out Lana Marks as the sacrificial goat to serve their devilish plans in order to blame Iran, despite the long term social ties this lady of Lithuanian Jewish extraction (born in East London, South Africa), has enjoyed with the US president.
This means she ought to be extra cautious from now on, and should be on guard against CIA moles amongst her own embassy staff, who might have hired some local mercenary with the promise of a few thousand dollars to finish her off, and then haul that poor guy into court to extract forced confessions against the Iranian embassy in Pretoria.
The South African government should also be alert to any such satanic plans designed to ruin its cordial ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran.
As Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Saeed Khatibzadeh made it clear in Tehran on Monday, Iran, unlike the US, fully adheres to diplomatic rules and international laws.
Thus, as said earlier, Washington has lost its mind and needs to come to its senses. It should be aware of Iran’s acclaimed integrity and respect for sovereignty of South Africa and its long-suppressed native people who are now the rightful rulers of their homeland after decades of being discriminated against through the barbaric policy of apartheid and centuries of exploitation by the white-skinned racist occupiers.
Of course, Iran’s promised vengeance that started with the barrage of ballistic missiles on the Ain al-Assad US base in Iraq on January 8, will indeed be fully materialized, and only those culprits involved in General Soleimani’s cowardly assassination will pay for his sacred blood, but not any ordinary American official, however, unprotected, or sharing social ties with Trump.
Be sure, we very well know the assassins of Martyr Soleimani, whatever their political position and wherever they might be.
They are in our crosshairs and whenever we deem necessary our vengeance will strike them, even if they happen to be under round-the-clock security, or in any iron dome – if Divine wrath has not already struck them for their unpardonable crime.
