Interpol Responds to Iran’s Request to Arrest Trump With a Firm “No”
As one might expect, Iran still hasn’t gotten over when General Qasam Soleimani was blown to smithereens by a U.S. airstrike in retaliation for Iranian militias storming the U.S. embassy in Baghdad.
Ironically, in 2018 Soleimani himself promised retaliation against Donald Trump after Trump promised that “sanctions are coming” in a Game of Thrones themed tweet. “Come! We are waiting,” Soleimani wrote on his Instagram in response. “I can stop you. Quds Force can stop you,” added Soleimani. “You start this war, but we will finish it.”
Turns out, Trump finished it.
Iran is still seeking “justice” for Soleimani, but rather than turn to military escalation (because they know how that will end), they asked Interpol (with a straight face) to arrest President Trump. And in response to that, Interpol quickly dismissed the absurd request.
As CNBC reports:
Interpol has resoundingly rejected the Iranian government’s request for help in carrying out an arrest warrant for U.S. President Donald Trump, in a statement sent to CNBC late Monday.
“Under Article 3 of INTERPOL’s constitution ‘it is strictly forbidden for the Organization to undertake any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character’,” the Lyon-based international organization said in the emailed statement.
“Therefore, if or when any such requests were to be sent to the General Secretariat, in accordance with the provisions of our constitution and rules, INTERPOL would not consider requests of this nature.”
So, calling the cops on President Trump didn’t work for Iran. Perhaps next they can take a page out of the left’s playbook and see if a social worker can be of more assistance.
