The storming of the Tehran embassy was a politically motivated act of violence specifically targeting civilians , no different than the dozens of other ones the Islamic Republic has ordered or sponsored over the past forty years. The issue is that you weep and wail whenever anyone points out the systematic terrorism conducted by your favorite regime. Perhaps if the Iranian government hadn’t spent forty years helping happily murder numerous civilians and shown its utter disregard for even the basics of international law people wouldn’t feel the need to ensure that they didn’t have nuclear weapons.Agan, nobody said anything about justifying terrorism. Nor does it make sense to argue that the ocupation of the Tehran embassy is an act of terrorism. The issue is the DOUBLE standards which people use when they selectively the bar high for Iran compared to other countries. By the way, just recently we had an act of terrorism killing a scientist in Iran. So spare with your nonsense.

Israeli authorities used renewable administrative detention orders to hold Palestinians without charge or trial. Some 4,638 Palestinians from the OPT, including 458 administrative detainees, were held in Israeli prisons as of 30 November, according to the Israel Prison Service. Many families of Palestinian detainees in Israel, particularly those in Gaza, were not permitted entry to Israel to visit their relatives.
Palestinian civilians, including children, from the OPT were prosecuted in military courts that did not meet international fair trial standards.
Oh look, more whataboutism. Yawn.
