TASNIM NEWS AGENCY – A former US Senate candidate said the recent terror attack in the southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz was part of a larger set of “Zionist-Neo Conservative aggressions” against Iran.
“Mark Dankof was the 36th Legislative District Chairman of the GOP in King County/Seattle; the 2000 Constitution Party candidate in the US Senate race in Delaware; He is an ordained Lutheran pastor.”
Tasnim: “As you know, 25 people were killed and dozens of others injured after unknown terrorists opened fire at a military parade in Iran’s southwestern city of Ahvaz on Saturday. What is your take on the attack?”
Dankof: “It is no accident that this despicable terror attack in Ahvaz occurred on the anniversary of the beginning of the Iran-Iraq War, which produced more casualties than any conflict since World War II. The launching of that conflict by Iraq had the full backing of the United States, Israel, and Britain among others, and was designed to strike back at the then newly established Islamic Republic of Iran in the wake of the overthrow of the Pahlavi Regime. The Ahvaz horror perpetrated during an Iranian military parade occurs against the backdrop of the totally irresponsible statements and policies of the current Zionist-Neo Conservative foreign policy team of Donald Trump led by John Bolton, Mike Pompeo, and Nikki Haley, who clearly want an American-Israeli military conflict with Iran at the behest of Benjamin Netanyahu and his sycophants in the American Congress and American Mainstream News Media.”
