After Turkey’s smashing propaganda success against Israel, Iran was going to follow up by sending “aid ships” of their own to Gaza, but they backed down when Israel announced it would take such a provocation as a declaration of war:
Iran has cancelled sending an aid ship to the Gaza Strip which had been scheduled to set sail for the Palestinian territory on Sunday, state news agency IRNA reported.
“The trip is not going to happen,” Hossein Sheikholeslam, secretary general of the International Conference for the Support of the “Palestinian” Intifada, an Iranian body set up by parliament, told reporters on Thursday, IRNA said. . .
He said the voyage was cancelled as Israel “had sent a letter to the United Nations saying that the presence of Iranian and Lebanese ships in the Gaza area will be considered a declaration of war on that regime and it will confront it,” IRNA quoted him as saying.
Iran blusters a lot. A lot. But they backed down at the threat of war from Israel. Imagine what would happen if the United States started standing firm for a change.
