ICBPS– The Islamic Republic of Iran’s malicious behavior has forced Britain to pay a ransom of £400 million tank order marks “for its citizen Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who is jailed in Iran.”
The U.K. seeks to pay a debt to the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) that could finally help secure British dual nationals’ release, including Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, according to the Defense Secretary Ben Wallace.
Nazanin is one of the British dual nationals who has been detained in Iran in jail and then house arrest since 2016.
The U.K. is thought to owe as much as £400 million to the IRI arising from the non-delivery of Chieftain tanks ordered by the Shah of Iran before the Islamic Revolutionaries took power in 1979.
Previously, the IRI’s authorities have implicitly claimed that Nazanin’s release could come a step closer if a long-running dispute over the U.K. government’s non-payment of a £400m debt to Iran is settled in the court of appeal in January 2020.
The IRI’s officials demanded hush money as extortion to release Nazanin as well as they had done towards the other dual nationals and foreigners in the past years.
The international community should not allow IRI any opportunity to blackmail the West into a compromise on the pretext of release the hostages.
In the year that the Islamic Revolution took power in Iran, the Islamic terror agents shattered international diplomatic standards, by causing the first “Iran Hostage Crisis.”
On November 4, 1979, a conspiracy plan put into action, and the Islamic street thugs, organized as the “Muslim Student Followers of Imam’s Line,” invaded and took armed siege of the U.S. embassy compound, held fifty-two American diplomats and citizens hostage for the next 44 days until President Ronald Reagan’s inauguration on January 20, 1981.
Yet, “No student regrets the U.S. Embassy siege,” the IRGC-run Tasnim News quoted Ebtekar, the vice president [of the so-called moderate Hassan Rouhani] for Women and Family Affairs.
Hostage-taking, demanding hush money as blackmail, and hostility against other nations have become a habit for the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Further, the IRI uses the Coronavirus to revive itself by playing the victim card to justify its malicious behavior both inside and abroad. The regime has taken the people of Iran hostage to the COVID19 pandemic crisis, pulling the wool over the world’s eyes, hoping that sanctions will be relaxed [after a possible victory of Democrat Joe Biden] and that they will get more cash for regional provocation and proxies. No government treats its citizens the way Mullahs have.
This is the regime that President Donald Trump rightfully withdrew the U.S. from the so-called Iran deal.
Iran Regime’s Islamic hostage-taking must be stopped once and for all, before it’s too late.
