EU Condemns Assassination of Iran’s Nuclear Weapons Mastermind, Offers Condolences
EU foreign policy-chief Borrell offers “condolences” over the death of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh
The European Union has condemned the targeting of Iran’s nuclear weapons chief. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, who led Iran’s clandestine nuclear weapons program, was killed in an explosion near Iranian capital Tehran on Friday.
Fakhrizadeh, widely reported in the mainstream media as a ‘scientist,’ was a high-ranking member of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a U.S.-designated terrorist group. He apparently “retained a senior rank in the IRGC as a brigadier general,” British newspaper The Guardian confirmed.
“This is a criminal act and runs counter to the principle of respect for human rights the EU stands for,” the EU foreign policy spokesperson told reporters on Saturday. The EU foreign policy-chief Josep Borrell paid “condolences” to the family of the deceased nuclear weapons mastermind.
The EU statement came after Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Friday told Brussels to toe Tehran’s official line on the killing of its prominent WMD operative. “Last night Iranian FM Zarif instructed the European Union to condemn the killing of the nuclear weapons chief of Iran’s IRGC terrorist org, and to brand it as criminal,” U.S.-based national security expert Omri Ceren noted on Twitter.
The United Nations and Germany also issued similar statements of condemnation.
They were not alone in expressing outrage over the elimination of the top Iranian nuclear operative. Several Islamic and Palestinian terrorist groups echoed their sentiment.
Following the EU’s footsteps, Gaza-based Islamic terrorist group Hamas condemned the alleged strike and offered “sincere condolences” to the Mullah regime on the “martyrdom” of the top nuclear weapons mastermind. “A number of Palestinian terror groups, holding Israel and the US responsible, have condemned the assassination,” The Jerusalem Post reported.
The Times of Israel news website reported EU’s response:
The European Union on Saturday condemned the killing of a top Iranian nuclear scientist a day earlier as a “criminal act” and urged calm and restraint as officials in Tehran blamed Israel for the assassination and vowed to respond.
“In these uncertain times, it is more important than ever for all parties to remain calm and exercise maximum restraint in order to avoid escalation which cannot be in anyone’s interest,” said Peter Sano, lead spokesperson for the external affairs division of the European Union, based in Brussels.
“This is a criminal act and runs counter to the principle of respect for human rights the EU stands for. The High Representative expresses his condolences to the family members of the individuals who were killed, while wishing a prompt recovery to any other individuals who may have been injured,” he added in a press statement.
While the EU was expressing condolences to Iran over the killing of its nuclear weapons chief, the Mullah regime in Tehran issued threats against Israel. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani vowed revenge as he pinned the blame for the explosion on ‘Israeli mercenaries.’
Since President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Obama-era nuclear deal, the EU has emerged as the biggest backer of the Iranian regime. Brussels, spearheaded by Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, has set up an alternative payment mechanism designed to bypass U.S. sanctions on the Shia-Islamic regime. The barter-based arrangement allows European businesses to trade in Iranian oil and commodities undetected, thus filling the coffers on the Iranian regime, the world’s biggest state-sponsor of terrorism.
The attack on Iran’s nuclear weapons chief comes more than a week after a joint CIA-Mossad operation that took out Al Qaeda’s second-in-command, Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, who was operating from Iran. Abdullah’s 27-year-old daughter Maryam bin Laden, one of Osama bin Laden’s daughters-in-laws and a budding Al Qaeda operative, who also killed in the counter-terrorism strike outside Tehran.
In January, President Trump ordered a drone strike outside Baghdad that eliminated the head of Iran’s foreign terrorist operations, Qasem Soleimani.
The office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has not commented on Friday’s incident.

They’re on the other side.
When haven’t they been?
Gee maybe Israel wouldn’t have to conduct such targeted assassinations if ya know, Iran wasn’t led by a bunch of genocidal f***ers who want to slaughter the Jews and wipe Israel off the map! Just saying EU!
And, even more so, if, you know, they weren’t encouraged and enabled by globalist multi-cultis in the EU?
taking a knee to the terrorists has always worked in the past. sarc
What these pog ignorant fucks deliberately ignore is the Juices are saving their cities from Iranian terrorist attacks.
Part of me says fuck the EU, let the moolahs get nukes so they can level an EU city.
I think we should quell Iran’s thirst for nukes with a few samples. It took two to pacify Japan, Iran needs 4-6, maybe more to cure their lust for terror.
Reports of an assassination may be smokescreen:
Time to pull every American military person out of Western Europe
We’re way overdue on that.
Move them to Poland.
Appeasement always works.
Don’t fret, Biden will send Whitesnake to play for peace.
… and Corn Pop to rough them up.
Please correct headline:…”On cue, EU condemns…”, on cue.
Everybody who’s surprised raise your hands. Yup. Usual suspects surprised, our elites who think Mohammedanism is a cult of peace.
Bye the way… those islamists hate me because I’m Christian. They dispise all y’all because you’re arrogant, foolish cowards. I prefer being hated.
So when I want to talk to the EU, whom I’m going to call???
And if their line is busy, the call will be diverted to China…
Inasmuch as any number of the EU member nations are “occupied,” perhaps this was a smart move on the part of EU foreign policy-chief Josep Borrel.
There were also European elites who had no problem with Adolph early on.
Right up to September 1939…..
Same for a lot of Democrats as well….Kennedy…
How could anyone sleep with the outrage of Israel having destroyed Syrian and Iraqi nuclear reactors in years gone by?
I’ll tell you how: soundly.
Gave up on Europe after Merkel began her migrant open borders immigration. Some of the idiot politicians need a history lesson starting with the Russian Revolution and Stalin. They’re recreating history only with religious fanatics who will set the world on fire given half the chance.
Merkel committed cultural suicide on behalf of the German people. Genes of the German people will be thinly diluted by within Islamic dullards.
So much for the Master Race.
Took out a bad guy developing WMD and pissed off an entire continent of fake friends.
Has a single bullet ever yielded better results?
I too would like to offer my condolences to this groundbreaking scientist and his laboratory workmates. We have a glorious floral arrangement to send to his workplace, we just need a street address and a time when his co-workers will be available to sign for it.
–Not The Mossad, Honest
P.S. GPS coordinates will work if you don’t have an exact street address.
EU? I think it stands for “Eludes Understanding.”
As we’ve learned, ideology on the part of traitors like obama, kerry, biden, clinton and the rest has nothing to with with whether Iran gets nukes or not. It ONLY has to do with how much money obama, kerry, biden, clinton get in graft and embezzlement.
It’s been about lining their pockets all along.
We’ve always known where the cards fall with the EU. Who is the biggest supplier of machinery and equipment for the nuclear industry? The EU of course! They are Double-Tongued Snakes so learn to live with them.
