MP Calls for Retaliation Against Britain, Germany and UAE - UPDATE

Iran’s Majlis has passed a measure reserving the country’s right to take retaliatory actions against Britain, Germany and UAE for refusing to refuel Iranian passenger jets.

"Majlis has passed a law and the National Security Commission approved the resolution that Iran reserves the right to take retaliatory measures against those countries that work in the framework of the [new sanctions]," said Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission [ISNA, Press TV, 8 July].

"Iran reserves the right to take retaliatory actions in cases that its planes or ships face any problem," Falahatpisheh added.

"We should definitely retaliate against the United Arab Emirates, Britain and Germany whose planes need transit fuel from Iran."

UPDATE: Reuters is quoting German officials that two Iranian passenger planes took off from Hamburg airport on Thursday without refueling.

The best thing about the Islamic Republic's calm and calculating leadership is its maturity and rantionality and not to resort to empty threats. They will retaliate for sure but take their time and pick the time and place of Iran's choosing. Persians invented chess and have a lot of patience and a bag full of tricks. The Persian Empire was an empire of the mind.

Everything is actually fine, business as usuall, stop trying to fix what is not broken.

The noise is more for Israeli benefit for them to be pressured to give in on Gaza.

Iran was the Israeli condition and all have pro-forma accepted, but not really.... know what I mean ??
