Syria: Iran Vows Revenge After Jews Blow Up Their Consulate in Damascus

We’re pretty far past “imagine if anyone other than the Jews did something like this.”

But imagine if anyone other than the Jews blew up another country’s consulate in a foreign country they’re not even at war with.

Like, imagine if Russia blew up the Polish consulate in Estonia.

For that matter, imagine if America blew up the Russian consulate in Venezuela.


Iran and one of its key proxies vowed Tuesday to respond to a strike widely attributed to Israel that demolished Iran’s consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus and killed eight people, including two Iranian generals.

Iran’s state TV reported Tuesday that the country’s Supreme National Security Council, a key decision-making body, met late Monday and decided on a “required” response to the strike. The report said the meeting was chaired by President Ebrahim Raisi, but provided no further details.

Israel has repeatedly targeted military officials from Iran, which supports militant groups fighting Israel in Gaza, and along its border with Lebanon. Monday’s strike in Damascus signaled an escalation because it struck an Iranian diplomatic mission.

It was not clear if Iran would respond itself, risking a dangerous confrontation with Israel and its ally the United States, or if it would continue to rely on proxies, including Lebanon’s Hezbollah militia and Yemen’s Houthi rebels.

The airstrike in Syria killed Gen. Mohammad Reza Zahedi, who led the elite Quds Force in Lebanon and Syria until 2016, according to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. It also killed Zahedi’s deputy, Gen. Mohammad Hadi Hajriahimi, and five other officers.

Hezbollah said Tuesday that Zahedi played a crucial role in helping “develop and advance the work” of the group in Lebanon.

A Hezbollah member was also killed in Monday’s strike, bringing the overall death toll to eight. Hezbollah announced the death of Hussein Youssef on Tuesday, but did not provide further details.

“This crime will certainly not pass without the enemy receiving punishment and revenge,” Hezbollah said in a statement.

IRNA said Iran holds the United States, Israel’s closest ally, responsible for the strike.

That’s fair enough. America is responsible for everything Israel does, because without American support, Israel couldn’t do anything.

Though it is worthwhile to note that Israel does stuff America could never get away with.

There is some question as to whether America is the tool of Israeli Jews or Israel is the tool of American Jews. It’s really an academic matter, as in practice, it’s the same thing. However, I think historically, American Jews used Israel for their agenda, because Israel was able to get away with things America could never get away with. Now, however, it seems to have reversed.

Jews are very big on assassinations
