#Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.

A regime terror team is on trial for plotting to bomb an opposition rally in 2018.

Appeasing the terrorist mullahs should end once & for all.

Iranian diplomat Asadollah Assadi, accused of planning to bomb a meeting of an exiled Iranian opposition group in France, literally "warned authorities of possible retaliation by unidentified groups if he is found guilty."

Assadi used his diplomatic immunity to transfer the TATP bomb in his handbag from Tehran to Vienna on Austrian Airlines flight OS872. The airliner cancelled flights to many Iranian cities afterwards.

In 2017, Assadi rented a car & went from Austria to Paris on a recon mission of the targeted site.

More importantly, the driver’s license used to rent the car was under “Mohammad Reza Zaeri,” cleric on the right.

Assadi violated each of the core principles of diplomacy. He’s a known undercover agent of Iran's intel service. It is clear Assadi could have only acted under orders from the highest leaders of the regime.

Regime tried to say Assadi was a rogue element. Rogue elements do not exist in the regime. When it comes to serious concerns of the regime, there is no independent elements for terror attacks.

"The trial of Asadollah Assadi is a chance to unveil how the regime uses its diplomatic institutions for terrorism," said German MP @MPatzeltCDU.

Terrorism has been the bread-and-butter of the four-decade rule of the mullahs' regime in Iran. But Tehran’s bloody history of foreign assassinations and bombings is about to reach a turning point.

If #Iran faces no consequences either for the 2018 terror plot or for systematic nuclear deal violations, the regime will surely conclude that it enjoys impunity in both of these areas & will resort to same tactics in the future.

“… any economic and trade relations with [Iran] on the improvement of the human rights situation in Iran & an end to the regime’s terrorism on European soil.”

European countries should shut down the regime’s embassies and expel the regime’s agents from their soil.

This approach will certainly help prevent Tehran from spreading chaos across the world.
