    It was only a matter of time till Israel starts to promote “regime change” in Teheran

      They have tried it in almost every country in the ME, it was just a matter of tiem before the zioNazis tried it directly in tehran . ..

      Actually they tried hard but it’s well outside their reach. In addition, it’s much better to manipulate arabs into fighting among themselves, than having to face them united.

      Israel’s plan is to make christians muslims and all the goym kill each other and stay on the sidelines until late.

      A little like those rumbles where ten drunks all fight among theirselves, smash bottles on their heads and chairs on their backs, and when the last of them standing claims victory, with his bloody face all black and blue, a small distrophyc guy steps in the scene, gives him a little push sending him to the ground, and then proceeds to take all their wallets, watches and things.

    2 days ago, Trump appointed a new CIA Iran operations director, Michael D’Andrea. Nicknamed Ayotallah Mike, he is instrumental in the drone war campaign. He has the blood of thousands of civilians and militants on his hands. He has also been involved in killing the international chief of Hezbollah, Imad Mugniyah, in Damascus in 2008 with a car bomb with help from the MOSSAD. He is a converted Muslim working for the greater evil in this world.

      Its his turn to die now

    • chris chuba

      I don’t believe D’Andrea was responsible but I do believe that ISIS is doing these acts to try to get western countries and Iran into a donnybrook to help their cause. Iran is too smart to fall for it but we are likely to intervene on the wrong side.

    So far those states sponsoring terrorism are fortunate that the affected countries don’t do the same to them, nothing to stop them doing it though.

    DEATH TO EVERY SINGLE COUNTRY WHO SUPPORTS WHOEVER TERRORISTS DID THIS!!!!!!

    • Solomon Krupacek

      the will listen to music. played by Stalin-Organ

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      My guess is Israel will stage an event in which no important person is harmed. And then they will make a Hollywood movie claiming how they fought so hard against an ISIS attack lol.
      They use Hollywood to make a factual event blown up into something that is 5.9-millions times larger then it really was. ha ha.

    It’s amazing that ISIS was able to do this.
    This will strengthen the determination of the Iranian people in the war against the Sunni jihadists. Maybe that’s what ISIS tried to achieve, in addition to their desire to receive the Moral support of the Sunni world.
