The Iranians are threatening retaliation against the British after they seized an Iranian oil tanker.
An Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander threatened on Friday to seize a British ship in retaliation for the capture of an Iranian supertanker in Gibraltar by Royal Marines.
“If Britain does not release the Iranian oil tanker, it is the authorities duty to seize a British oil tanker,” Mohsen Rezai said on Twitter.
The Gibraltar government said the crew on board the supertanker Grace 1 were being interviewed as witnesses, not criminal suspects, in an effort to establish the nature of the cargo and its ultimate destination.
British Royal Marines abseiled onto the ship off the coast of the British territory on Thursday and seized it. They landed a helicopter on the moving vessel in pitch darkness.
The move escalates a confrontation between Iran and the West just weeks after the United States called off air strikes minutes before impact, and draws Washington’s close ally into a crisis in which European powers had striven to appear neutral.
The Jew-controlled West is doing everything they can to agitate a major conflict against Iran. This is just the latest escalation.
The Iranians are the modern day incarnation of the Persian Empire, a civilization that has been around for thousands of years. There is no reason for the West to agitate conflict with them. This is only happening because of the fact that Jews have subverted our societies and they are trying to get the West to fight a big war against them because they are Israel’s arch-nemesis.
