Trying to emulate their “righteous forebears” of 1979 at the US embassy?
Surely Khomeini would be proud. Even though “Britain has called for an urgent ceasefire,” that’s not good enough. Nothing will ever be good enough — not allowing sharia courts to operate in Britain, nor financially supporting Hamas. The more you concede, the more will be demanded of you — till you live in complete submission in accordance to Koran 9:29: “Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.”
“Iranian students raid British Embassy residence in Gaza protest,” from the Telegraph, December 30:
A group of Iranian students stormed the British diplomatic compound in Tehran on Tuesday evening, accusing London of supporting the Israeli airstrikes on Gaza, Iran’s official news agency reported.
“A large group of people and students entered the Gholhak gardens, which are occupied by the British embassy, to protest at Britain’s policies in supporting the Zionist regime and put up the Palestinian flag there,” state news agency IRNA reported.
The students stormed the compound on Tuesday evening and pulled down the British flag, replacing it with a Palestinian flag at compound’s entrance before embassy police forced them to leave.
“We do confirm the raid on our premises. We are in contact with Islamic republic authorities to resolve the matter,” Mitra Behnam, a British embassy spokesman, told AFP.
Gholhak gardens, a sprawling compound in north Tehran, provides accommodation for British diplomats and their families.
Britain has called for an urgent ceasefire by both sides in Gaza, where Israeli warplanes have launched waves of airstrikes against the Islamist Hamas movement since Saturday, killing at least 360 Palestinians, and Hamas militants have been firing volleys of rockets into Israel.
