According to a story in London’s Jewish Chronicle, the Iranian government is “mapping” Jews worldwide to kill them if Israel attacks Iran.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was seen by Catherine Perez-Shakdam, a Middle East expert and research fellow at a think tank, in February 2017. She thinks he didn’t realize she’s Jewish.
Perez-Shakdam asserts that Khamenei is solely concerned about an attack from Israel. She told the newspaper, “He believes Netanyahu’s threats, and he knows that for the time being, Israel is militarily dominant. He believes that the Iranian regime cannot endure a loss.
Perez-Shakdad was informed of a scheme to “map major Jewish figures around the world for Iran’s murder squads” during her visit, according to the Chronicle.
She explained, “The objective was to identify all key Jewish-run Organizations, who was doing what in each industry, and the essential rabbis. To target them, they sought to determine their sphere of influence and residence.
In November, the newspaper reported that British intelligence agency MI5 claimed that it had thwarted ten assassination attempts in only one year. If any of such attempts were directed at Jews was not specified.
