The Iranian regime has issued an arrest warrant for President Donald Trump and asked Interpol for help in detaining him. Iran also issued arrest warrants for 30 other individuals it blames for the killing of Soleimani, but did not identify anyone else sought other than Trump. Iran stressed it would continue to pursue his prosecution even after his presidency ends.

Interpol has declined, and there is no risk that the President will be in danger of being arrested, however, it does highlight the heightened tensions between the two countries.

Interpol, based in Lyon, France, said in a statement its constitution forbade it to undertake “any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character”.

“Therefore, if or when any such requests were to be sent to the General Secretariat … Interpol would not consider requests of this nature.”

The US’s Iran envoy Brian Hook described the move as a “propaganda stunt”.

“Our assessment is that Interpol does not intervene and issue Red Notices that are based on a political nature,” Hook said at a news conference in Saudi Arabia.

“This is a political nature. This has nothing to do with national security, international peace or promoting stability… It is a propaganda stunt that no-one takes seriously,” he said.

President Trump rightly withdrew America from the disastrous Iran Nuclear Deal when he became President and has reapplied sanctions to Iran, which is the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism. Hezbollah, Hamas and other prolific terrorist organisations are under the direct control of Iran. Directing these brutal campaigns was General Qassem Soleimani.

The U.S. killed Soleimani, who oversaw the Revolutionary Guard’s expeditionary Quds Force, and other high ranking officials in a January strike near Baghdad International Airport. The strike was a shock to the Iranian dictators and showed the rogue regime that the US was not playing games.

Soleimani was also the one who ordered Iranian forces to shoot and kill unarmed Iranian protesters in November last year. More than 2,000 Iranian civilians were killed by their own government simply for protesting for better funding for themselves instead of funding terrorist groups that seek to destroy Israel.

The Iranian regime has a stated aim of removing Israel from the earth. The regime seeks to acquire nuclear weapons in order to fulfil this purpose. Sadly, the UK is still part of the disastrous Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA) and continues to fund the regime and ignore their threats against Israel.
