Khamenei threatens to punish the UK for “piracy”

Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said on Tuesday Iran would respond to Britain’s “piracy” over the seizure of an Iranian oil tanker in Gibraltar. He was speaking on television. Iran has repeatedly demanded that Britain immediately release the oil tanker, which was seized by British Royal Marines on suspicion it was breaking European sanctions by taking oil to Syria. “Evil Britain commits piracy and steals our ship … and gives it a legal appearance. Iran and those who believe in our system will not leave such evil deeds unanswered,” said Khamenei.

    To my Christian brothers in Iran: start moving away from Qom and places with military and nuclear installations. The day of the Lord is not too far away.
