The Islamic Regime of Iran got a taste on Wednesday of what it has been dishing out to the rest of the world for the past 38 years, with special focus on Israel and the Jewish People.

The assailants in yesterday’s attack in Tehran didn’t choose their targets at random, it was a very clear message.

They targeted the shrine of an Iranian Islamic Revolutionary founding father, and they targeted the parliament where the Ayatollahs rule.

ISIS took credit, and Iran blamed the ideology of Saudi Arabia, but the assailants were apparently Iranian citizens (possibly from one of the small ethnic or religious minorities in Iran).

I offer my wholehearted condolences and sympathy to any innocent individuals harmed or killed in the attack, I do not and cannot condemn yesterday’s attack against this evil regime — which should be overthrown.

While countries around the world are showing their sympathy to Iran and condemning the attack, I think this would be a good opportunity to remind people who and what the Islamic regime of Iran really is.

Here is an abbreviated list of terror attacks that the Islamic regime of Iran has perpetrated, financed and/or supported against the US, Israel and the Jewish People:

1979: Storming the American Embassy and holding 90 people hostage, 52 of them for 444 days.

1983: Bombing the US Marines barracks in Beirut, killing 241 Americans, and 58 French peacekeepers.

1984: Bombing the US Embassy Annex in Lebanon, killing 24 people.

1992: Bombing the Israeli Embassy in Argentina, killing 29 people. 242 people were injured.

1994: Bombing the IMIA Jewish Center in Buenos Aires, killing 84 people.

1994: Suspected of bombing the Israeli Embassy in London, killing 20 people.

1996: Bombing the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, killing 19 US servicemen.

2005: Suspected of ordering the assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafic Hariri.

2011: Plot to bomb the Israeli and Saudi Embassies in Washington D.C.

2012: Attack on an Israeli diplomats in India, leaving multiple wounded.

In 2016, a US State Department report wrote that Iran “remained the foremost state sponsor of terrorism in 2015, providing a range of support, including financial, training, and equipment, to groups around the world.” There were 11,774 terrorist attacks in 92 countries in 2015.

Even now, the Iranian regime is actively trying to set up terror bases on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights in order to attack Israel.

It goes without saying that throughout these years, Iran has been the patron of the Hezbollah terrorist organization, providing Hezbollah with weapons, training and funding to repeatedly attack Israeli and Jewish targets.

Iran is the on-again off-again patron of the Hamas terror organization, currently back on again, providing funding and weapons to Hamas to attack the Jewish state. Iranian money paid for Hamas’s suicide bombers and missiles.

The US State Department says that Iran provides support for Islamic Jihad organization within Israel.

The Islamic regime in Iran is very familiar with terrorism. They are the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism. Period.

So while I offer my wholehearted condolences and sympathy to any innocent individuals harmed or killed in the attack, I do not and cannot condemn yesterday’s attack against this evil regime — which should be overthrown.

The Iranian people and the rest of the world deserve to be freed from the clutches of the terror-supporting Islamic regime of Iran.

If ISIS and the Islamic regime of Iran destroy each other in the process, all the better for the rest of the world.
