The Islamic Republic of Iran could be in its last days, and when an animal is cornered, that’s when it lashes out. The disastrous nuke deal has been canceled, thanks to President Trump, and the mullahs are facing increasing protests and unrest at home. It is entirely within the realm of possibility that they would decide to attempt to strike out at an opposition force at this time. And if Giuliani had been killed in the process, they would think it was so much the better, since he is a close associate of the President. We can only hope that this rogue regime will very soon pass into history.

Belgium, France and Germany have detained six people, including an Iranian diplomat, over an alleged plot to bomb a weekend rally by an exiled Iranian opposition group in Paris, authorities and sources said Monday.

Iran’s foreign minister dismissed the attack plot as a “false flag ploy” designed to overshadow Rouhani’s tour.
“How convenient: Just as we embark on a presidential visit to Europe, an alleged Iranian operation and its ‘plotters’ arrested,” Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted .
“Iran unequivocally condemns all violence and terror anywhere, and is ready to work with all concerned to uncover what is a sinister false flag ploy,” he said.
Federal authorities in Brussels first revealed the arrests, charging a husband and wife described by prosecutors as Belgian nationals “of Iranian origin”.
Amir S., 38, and Nasimeh N., 33, “are suspected of having attempted to carry out a bomb attack” on Saturday in the Paris suburb of Villepinte, during the conference organised by the People’s Mujahedin of Iran, a statement from the Belgian federal prosecutor said.
The couple were carrying 500 grams (about one pound) of the volatile explosive TATP along with a detonator when angroup elite police squad stopped them in a residential district of Brussels.
The statement said that an Iranian diplomat at the embassy in Vienna, a contact of the couple, was also detained in Germany.
