    EU sanctions Iran over assassination plots

    The EU hit Iran's intelligence services with sanctions Tuesday after accusing Tehran of being behind plots to assassinate regime opponents on Dutch, Danish and French soil.

    The move by the 28-nation bloc was announced as the Dutch government said it believed Iran was behind the murders of two dissidents in 2015 and 2017.

    "Very encouraging that (the) EU has just agreed on new targeted sanctions against Iran in response to hostile activities and plots being planned and perpetrated in Europe, including Denmark," Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said.


    The "EU stands united -- such actions are unacceptable and must have consequences," he tweeted.


    Sanctions
    include the freezing of funds and other financial assets of the Iranian intelligence ministry and individuals, officials said.


    But Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif pointed the finger at European nations he said were harbouring terrorists.


    "Accusing Iran does not release Europe from its responsibility for hosting terrorists," he said in a tweet.

    When sanctions, serious actual sanctions not just words, are made against Israel for similar actions, I will congratulate the UN.

    Sorry, when did Israel last get caught plotting assassinations in Europe again? I must have missed that.

    No trial facts/details, no evidence facts/details, no conviction facts/details.

    This western "rules and international law" based system is somewhat flexible . In investigation, legal procedure and execution.

    The trials are ongoing.

    And counter-intelligence services normally don't release details of how they gather evidence on foreign foes - you fuckwit.

    No it's about illegal sanctions by the EU. Currently unsubstantiated by any legal court.

    A legal procedure is required to determine guilt, where evidence is produced and questioned. Leading to a jury agreeing or not with the allegation. If found guilty penalties are decided.

    Until then, your OP is hearsay and any sanctions are illegal.

    Not that the fabled western democracies pay much heed to any rules based procedures/international and domestic laws, as we well know.

    Why do assasinations have to be in Europe, specifically, to be condemned? The list is long, too long for me to go through and pick out just the European assissinations, but they are there aplenty.
    I was recalling a fairly recent assissination in Iran, (and well remember a murder in Auckland, NZ, where the Israeli perps were caught...google Rainbow Warrior. Not an assissination, but a murder.) and so googled for specifics. The list surprised even me. It's quite long.

    Rainbow Warrior was the Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys unhappy at their nuclear tests being sabotaged.

    The Kiwis actually jailed a Mossad agent for using a fake passport. They put him on the telly as well to fuck his cover. Which was nice.

    What a load of stupid waffle.

    Sanctions don't need legal approval. It is up to the Iranians if they wants to have assets in the EU, and if they choose to do so then they must pay the price when they do stupid shit like this.

    You do seem to think that the West must play by Queensberry rules while your beloved Chinkies/Persians/Russians/Whatever should be able to do what the fuck they like.

    You stupid, snivelling sycophant.

    Has everything to do with israel. The fact that you are oblivious to this is hardly surprising.

    2 unsubstantiated claims from 4 and 2 years ago and suddenly there is a pressing need for sanctions? No no Murkin Mainstream Media boy (I note you don't like CNNHarry) this is israel chucking its weight around. Bibi the Butcher was touring Europe just before Xmas to ""change the hostile and hypocritical approach of the European Union" toward peace in the Mideast."

    He also said that iran were planning terrorist attacks in Europe because he is a fucking madman. All to do with European companies not toeing the murikan line on sanctions and telling them to fuck off.


    Here's a short concise USA drivel article about it. Even a illiterate fool like you will be able to plough through that in a couple of hours.

    I'm not sure on the last time they got caught, but you can check the extensive list which spans more than half a century.

    Seems the last one was 1992 when they finished up payback for Munich.

    Otherwise it seems to be

    Gaza
    Gaza
    Gaza
    Syria
    Gaza
    Gaza
    Gaza
    Syria
    etc.

    You would think Gaza and Syria would put sanctions on them as well.

    They don't get caught any more. They have complete impunity to murder and kill anyone all over the world.

    Oh yeah, I stand corrected....got mixed up with the Mossad incident. There were two Mossad agents. The one they caught used the birth details of a dead spastic kid to get a passport.

    Yep, that 70 year old chip on their collective shoulder keeps the US and others kowtowing to whatever outrageous stunt they pull.

    War or combat? Not always the same...

    Ahead of peace meeting in Warsaw, Netanyahu threatens war with Iran

    Bibi tweets that countries are ‘sitting down together with Israel in order to advance the common interest of war with Iran.’

    WARSAW — A barrage of Twitter-fire quickly torched any notion of a Middle East peace conference — along with any illusions the meeting in Warsaw was not designed to focus on Iran.

    As officials from dozens of nations gathered for the U.S.-sponsored event in the Polish capital Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posted a tweet threatening war with Iran.

    Proclaiming the historic importance of the event, the Israeli prime minister's official account tweeted: "This is an open meeting with representatives of leading Arab countries, that are sitting down together with Israel in order to advance the common interest of war with Iran."

    Oops.

    The tweet was quickly deleted and replaced with a new one that used slightly softer language about "the common interest of combating Iran."
