#评拉什迪遇袭后 JK Rowling Receives Death Threats # [Iranian Lawmaker Claims Assassination of Rashid was a Warning to Suleimani's Killer] Salman Rushdie, who was ordered by Khomeini to write the Satanic Psalms, was attacked by a killer on August 12 as he was preparing to speak at an event in western New York, with stabbed neck and torso, severed nerves in his arm, stabbed in the liver, and possibly lost an eye.
In response, Malek Shariati, a member of parliament who represents several constituencies in Tehran province in the Iranian parliament, said that the attack on Rushdie, whether Iran was directly involved or not, was "a warning to the murderer of the martyr Suleimani." Earlier, members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps were said to have bought a murderer to assassinate Bolton, and the suspect was indicted.
Shariati said that if Iran is directly involved in (the assassination), it proves that Iran has strength; If the attack was carried out by Muslims independent of Iran, it indicates that the Islamic Revolution has been exported to the heart of the enemy; If the U.S. and Britain are behind it, it's a lesson for those who trust the West. But in any case, [this attack] is a warning to the murderer of the martyr Sulaimani.
Soleimani was killed in an airstrike on January 3, 2020, on the orders of then-U.S. President Donald Trump, and Iran believes that the central figures who made the decision at the time included Trump, Pompeo, and Bolton, all of whom later described as targets of Iranian retaliation. The recent assassinations show that Iran is not just talking, they are capable of putting it into action.
