It is totally nuts we’ve got stuff like this happening in first world Western nations in current year.
We have become a joke. I won’t even say “especially the UK is a joke,” because right now, comparing any of our nations in a “who is more of a joke” contest is retarded.
A group of men in black attire have scaled the façade of the Iranian embassy in London and have taken down the flag. The banners displayed by the men suggest a radical Shia group was behind the stunt.
Footage posted online shows the men on the balcony of the embassy building. One of the men apparently just took down the Iranian flag, while two others displayed the flags of the UK-based radical Shia Muslim Khoddam Al-Mahdi organisation.

The organisation was founded by Sheikh Yasser Habib, a Shia preacher known for his controversial views on Muslim history and for repeated insults of the Prophet Muhammad’s companions. His views got him 35 years in jail in Kuwait back in the 2000s. The preacher’s term was cut short, though, and he fled the country, eventually gaining asylum in the UK.
The Metropolitan Police have reportedly confirmed the incident, journalist Nahayat Tizhoosh tweeted, citing fellow journalist Laura McQuillan. The men reportedly got to the roof and police were negotiating for them to come down.
Four men have been arrested in connection with the incident, according to Iran’s Ambassador to the UK, Hamid Baeidinejad. He tweeted that more perpetrators could still be on the grounds of the embassy.
Initial reports on social media suggest the men are from a religious organization loyal to the ideas of the late Shia Muslim cleric, Grand Ayatollah Muhammad Al-Shirazi.
I’m not even going to comment on all that there, because I honestly have no idea.
A radical shiite group attacking Iran is very weird to me. Rouge ISIS agents have of course attacked their own Sunni HQ in Saudi Arabia, but that’s different because Sunniggers are retarded.
Anyway, point here is: this is goofy. When you’ve got people running around like this in a first world country, you’ve gone full-goof.
