Iran has issued an arrest warrant for President Donald Trump, and the radical Islamic regime wants the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) to help carry it out.
The Associated Press reports Iran issued the warrant for Trump and dozens of others involved in the drone strike that killed top Iranian terrorist mastermind Gen. Qassem Soleimani while he was visiting Baghdad. Iran’s warrants reportedly cite murder and terrorism charges.
INTERPOL has announced it will not assist Iran, citing its policy against any “intervention or activities of a political nature.”
Brian Hook, the US special representative for Iran, called the warrant “a propaganda stunt that no one takes seriously and makes the Iranians look foolish.”
In January, the US killed Soleimani who oversaw the Revolutionary Guard’s expeditionary Quds Force – a radical military wing that helped to kill US troops in Iraq. The strike on Soleimani came after months of rising tensions between the two countries and President Trump’s decision to withdraw the US from the flawed Iran nuclear deal.
While the arrest warrant stands virtually no chance of being carried out, it does underscore those tensions. Monday, an Iranian prosecutor said the regime would continue to pursue Trump’s prosecution even after his presidency ends.
According to the Memri (via The Daily Wire), a representative of Iran’s Supreme Leader said the current uprisings in America were evidence that “death to America” is something Americans themselves want.
The representative reportedly said:
“The entire world has seen with its very eyes that today, America cannot be the main decision-maker when it comes to strategic matters in the world. We are unequivocally informing the American administration, Republicans and Democrats alike: If you’ve shut your ears with cotton balls, remove them [so you can hear].
The sound of America being shattered and of its collapse, is being heard all over the world. The shout of the Iranian nation, which has been leading the fight against America for 40 years, is being heard from mouths of the Americans themselves: Death to America!”
The people attending the “sermon” then followed in chants of “death to America” over and over again.
This all comes from a government who has violently oppressed it’s own citizens. People were seen dancing in the streets after Qasem Soleimani was killed in a drone strike ordered by President Trump. Soleimani, for his part, routinely used intimidation and violence to keep citizens in line. He operated inside and outside Iranian borders and hundreds of US soldiers were killed in attacks he facilitated.
In 2015, Faithwire Managing Editor Dan Andros traveled to Iraq to report on why ISIS hadn’t been defeated in Iraq, only to see Soleimani’s brutality up close and personal. A family who had been tortured by him — including a young boy who had a hole drilled in his leg — served as a gruesome reminder of the type of pain Soleimani was capable of inflicting on human beings.
