Iranian official tweets link listing Trump’s properties after US president threatens attacks on cultural sites

Following US President Donald Trump’s Twitter threat to target cultural sites in Iran, an official in Tehran has disseminated a link to a webpage listing the Trump Organisation’s global real estate holdings, including the Mar-a-Lago club on Palm Beach.

Weeeeelll.. that Forbes story was from before Trump assumed the presidency, so... what... very early 2017 ? 

It's now 2020, three years later, and there have been no terrorist attacks against a Trump property. Perhaps they are just too well protected against bomb/ground attacks, and hijacking civilian airliners to use as kinetic strike weapons has been made VERY difficult since 9/11. 

Still, a sneaky trick from the Iranian government.

You do realize that Trump didnt kill an Iranian government official until 2020 right? Minor detail I know...

Indeed. However, he WAS hated by ISIS between 2016 and 2020, but THEY wheren't able to do that much. 

Incidently, what is your new icon @Farmer77 ? It looks like a snake biting a cricket ball ?

Right but they dont have the power that Iran does. Not that I think Iran will actually do something to a Trump property but they are much more capable of doing so than ISIS.

The Turkey properties seem pretty vulnerable as well.

Trump's properties? Oh, you mean the expensive and tasteless hotel and leisure complexes he owns around the world. I thought you meant his superpowers, like the ability to melt steel with one glance or invisibility or whatever.

Apparently this story about how Trump did business with leaders of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard while developing property in Azerbaijan has come to light, the day after he declared them to be a terrorist organization.  Now we know that he colors his face orange to hide the redness of public embarrassment.  Australian TV on Trump declaring Iranian Revolutionary Guard to be terrorists

Ive never heard of a terrorist attack in South Korea. Wish there was a Trump tower in North Korea.

Which really highlights the problem with speaking loudly  while carrying a big stick. Such a threat could very easily be interpreted by Muslims as an affront to all of Islam. Im not defending that thought process,just saying the hornets nest he is kicking with such rhetoric is potentially a whole lot larger than just the nation of Iran.

Not really.  One of the motivating factors behind the regional proxy wars being waged by KoSA and Iran is the long term religious hatred of Sunni and Shi'ite.  When a Muslim claims to be offended, really that is a cultural way of saying that they expect you to give them money for being a Muslim.  It is a point lost on non-Muslims for the most part, and something that Muslims really need to be educated out of doing, as they really aren't "special", and freedom of speech is so much more valuable than their precious narcissism.

classic Trump. shoots off the first thing that comes to mind until an aid comes to the rescue and re-educates Trump of the intricacies of diplomacy. I think the U.S. military openly stated that they would not be targeting an cultural sites, regardless of what Trump orders. and thats reassuring on many levels. Its good to know that Trump can kick around as many hornets nests as he likes but the reality and what he says are not always compatible with what he can do. 

But Putin took out ISIS mosques in Syria without any qualms and he's a rock star in the Middle East. Putin is the Rolling Stones. Trump is on-na different level. Banana Rama. And I'm sure country's like Iran treat him as such. deservedly.

I get what youre saying on the practical side but on the extreme side we have history which shows us when bad actors are looking for recruits to do something stupid they say things like :

Quote

First, for over seven years the United States has been occupying the lands of Islam in the holiest of places, the Arabian Peninsula, plundering its riches, dictating to its rulers, humiliating its people, terrorizing its neighbors, and turning its bases in the Peninsula into a spearhead through which to fight the neighboring Muslim peoples.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beliefs_and_ideology_of_Osama_bin_Laden


If some people have in the past argued about the fact of the occupation, all the people of the Peninsula have now acknowledged it. The best proof of this is the Americans' continuing aggression against the Iraqi people using the Peninsula as a staging post, even though all its rulers are against their territories being used to that end, but they are helpless.

 

 So im of the opinion that you give them as little "bulletin board" material as possible. Honestly theres just no benefit in doing so and no downside to not.

It's just the best analogy the Iranian information bureau could come up with, targeting Iranian cultural and religious sites is as despicable to the Iranians as targeting Trump Inc properties is to Trump. 

When what you obviously worships is money, then keeping you from your money hits and hurts the most.

Hmm.. they're a bit.. tenuous, aren't they ? Especially the Islamic Republican Guard connection ? It all seems a bit ".. he once bumped into somebody in a pub who's brothers nephew knew somebody who had ties to...... " ?

I wondered before the election, if this would ever end up being an issue, and I was curious how it would be dealt with.

Let’s see if the reverend Lindsey Graham can waive his “magic” wand and provide the protection.

Clearly, any damage to any Trump property would be instantly devastating to the brand, for a generation and beyond, I expect.

Okay, so here is a marvelous video from a person who faces the daily threat of death for quitting Islam, on the victim mentality that Muslims have.  He is not alone.  A great many young Muslims are sick to death of the totalitarian religion they were raised in ruining their lives, their society and the world.  Enjoy.

Apostate Prophet: The Muslim Victim Mentality

Some people only pretend to be victims.  We all know the story.  We've all met them.  Does anyone think that these sorts of lies come from good people?

Why not just ask for Lord Voldemort‘s wand, while you’re at it?

Speaking of wands, you do realize that the Washington Monument, is a sort of wand ....
