After slaughtering U.S. diplomats in Libya, Saudi-funded goons attack an Iranian diplomat in New York

Attack on Iranian diplomat is an attack not only on Iran but also on American values and international obligations.

A group of Saudi-funded protesters, waving Free Syria flag, attacked Iranian Deputy Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast near the United Nations in New York on Wednesday (26 Sep). New York policemen escorted him to safety.

The unfortunate attack on senior Iranian diplomat Ramin Mehmanparast in New York has all the hallmarks of Saudi Salafist lobby trying to ignite yet another counter-productive war in the Middle East, by luring the USA to attack Iran and Syria.

As a matter of principle, we remain critical of the theocratic regime in Tehran. As a secular blog, we believe in separation of State and religion and have in the past condemned Iranian clerical regime’s excesses against its political opponents, women and minority groups. However, that does not mean we are oblivious to the growing influence of the Saudi Salafist lobby in Washington DC and other Western capitals, which has resulted in unholy sponsoring of Takfiri Salafist militants in Libya, Syria, Bahrain, Eastern Saudi Arabia and South Asia. In Pakistan alone, we have lost 19,000 Shias, hundreds of Sunni Sufis, Ahmadis, Christians etc at the hands of Saudi-funded Salafist-Deobandis.

Ramin Mehmanparast was escorted from a Manhattan street by police after he was surrounded and threatened and attacked by violent protesters outside the UN building.

Here’s another clip:

An honourable American woman showed true American values (concern for peace, civility, human rights) when she screamed for the safety of the Iranian diplomate:”Drive away””Oh my god what is he doin?”

Saudi-funded Salafists can’t be allowed to attack diplomats in the streets of New York to implement their global Jihadist agenda.

We are sure that honorable, peace loving American citizens will not allow their country to be taken over by greedy Oil corporations and the Petro-Dollar rich Saudi Lobby. We can’t ignore the fact that Western Oil companies were the only victorious party in the aftermath of the US attacks on Libya and Iraq whereas the Al-Qaeda flag flew in both countries. We are also aware that Salafists are currently sponsored by Saudi Arabia and Qatar in Syria just as they were sponsored in Afghanistan and Libya. In Syria, it’s also Al-Qaeda doing all those terror attacks and again Saudi Arabia is backing them up. Thanks to the Saudi Lobby, the MEK terrorists have been recently taken off the official USA list of terrorist organizations.

As a standing protocol, NYPD is ordered to arrest anyone who tries to attack Presidents or diplomats; in this case they were very slow to act. THE NYPD stood strong and let the Salafist thugs attack the Iranian diplomate for a full 4:40 seconds. That is not acceptable.

The message sent from the street of New York to other cities of the world does not add to the USA’s honour and image as a responsible and law abiding country. If American government too allows attacks on foreign diplomats, then they don’t present themselves much different from the Islamist goons who attacked the US embassy in Tehran in 1979. US government must take all necessary precautions to protect diplomats from Salafist thugs and their paid proxies of Iranian, Libyan and Syrian origin.

In a text message, Alireza Miryusefi, a spokesman for Iran’s UN Mission, blamed the aggression of the protesters towards Mr Mehmanparast on the MEK. The “MEK is going to be delisted and you can expect such a aggressive behaviour of a terrorist sect. It would be another wrong step by US administration. The responsibility of protecting all diplomats is on behalf of government of USA”, Mr Miryusefi said.

Perhaps it is high time that the Obama Administration reviews its decision to delist MEK from list of terrorist organizations and also reviews its increasing reliance on discourses and agendas of the Saudi Lobby.

  • NEW YORK: An Iranian diplomat was escorted from a Manhattan street by police after he was surrounded and threatened by an angry mob of protesters near the United Nations. Deputy Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast was walking near the United Nations when he was noticed and confronted by the angry mob on Second Avenue near East 48th Street, said NYPD spokesman Paul Browne. He flagged down police officers, who helped him get to a safe spot. Browne said the threats were believed to have been verbal. The incident followed a speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the U.N. General Assembly.

    Outside, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who ran for president earlier this year, challenged President Barack Obama to take stronger action against Iran as it threatens to become a nuclear power. However, he did praise the Obama administration for recently taking the Iranian dissident group Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, or MEK, off the U.S. terrorist watch list. The group is a major anti-Iran terrorist group that was allied with Saddam Hussein in the 1980s.

    Speakers included high-profile U.S. politicians including two former U.S. ambassadors to the U.N., Democratic U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney and former Rep. Patrick Kennedy. Many of them are believed to be a recipient of generous Saudi donations.

    Alireza Miryusefi, a spokesman for Iran’s U.N. Mission, attributed the aggression of the protesters toward Mehmanparast to the MEK. The “MEK is going to be delisted and you can expect such a aggressive behavior of a terrorist sect. It would be another wrong step by U.S. administration. The responsibility of protecting all diplomats is on behalf of government of USA,” he said in a text message. Some Syrians (Salafists) too joined the anti-Iran protest.

    “There is no doubt about it. While the whole world is projecting Syria as a security threat to the whole region by the western media as well as GCC funded media in the Middle East, nobody is talking about Bahrain or Saudi Arabia. Why? Well it seems quite simple to a common man like me. Bahrain is home to US 5th fleet which helps the West, lead by the US to keep an eye on not just Iran but keep the Russian and Chinese ambitions in check. And the main reason, it gives the GCC countries a (false) sense of security. Moreover, stress on make the Syrian regime fall has more to do with weakening Iran rather than security isuue. So, in essence, head I win, tail u lose.”
