Today, Iran proposed the establishment of a regional office of human rights for Southwest Asia. The office would be located, of course, in Tehran.
Oh… And Iran also proposed attacks on Israel.
Former Commander-in-chief of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi threatened attacks on Israel today if the US were to strike Iran.

Safavi, who is now senior military advisor to Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, further viewed Iran, the Untied States and the Zionist regime of Israel as the main three actors in the Middle-East region and assured that the first actor will eventually defeat the other two and embrace victory.
“The conflict between these three will, God willing, end in the interest of Islam and Islamic nations and the United States cannot remain in this region forever,” he said.
The General reminded that the US has toppled two of Iran’s enemies – the Taliban in Afghanistan and Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq – at his own expense, and said that any US invasion of Iran will pose a great danger to its troops and interests in the region.
“The United States is facing three problems for invading Iran. Firstly, it is not aware of the volume and manner of Iran’s response. The US cannot foresee the level of the vulnerability of its 200 thousand troops in the region while we have identified all the bases very precisely. Secondly, it doesn’t know what will happen to Israel. And thirdly, the United States cannot predict what may happen to the flow of oil,” he added.
