Iranian diplomat Ahmed Sabatgold has been more involved in terrorism than diplomacy, as he was recently caught gathering intelligence about the Israeli embassy in Uruguay, and is also suspected of having planted an explosive device near Israel’s embassy in Montevideo in early January.

Sabatgold was serving as a political consultant for the Iranian embassy when he was caught planning a terrorist attack against Israeli diplomats. Apparently, while wining and dining other diplomats, Iranian diplomats also gather intelligence in order to facilitate terror attacks on foreign soil.

The government of Uruguay tried to keep a lid on the affair, so as not to embarrass and thus damage its relations with Iran, which has one of the world’s largest oil reserves and far-reaching influence in South America. So Ahmed Sabatgold was given sufficient time and warning to leave Uruguay as a diplomat with his head held high, as opposed to being expelled or detained for being the terrorist that he is.

Only a few weeks ago, Argentinian prosecutor Alberto Nisman was assassinated hours before he was set to reveal the Argentinian government’s role in covering up Iran’s direct involvement in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires that killed 84 people. Nisman’s body was discovered shortly before he was to present evidence which would have exposed Argentina’s President Cristina Fernández‘s central role in the cover-up.

Iranian tentacles have a global reach, and its influence in South American countries should worry Israelis and Americans. It amazes me how the Western world has taken up the fight against ISIS, yet Iran is being treated as though they are different from the thugs beheading journalists in Iraq and Syria.

Remember when Barack Obama called ISIS a JV team? Compared to Iran’s global influence, oil reserves, money, army, and missile capabilities, ISIS really is in many respects a junior varsity team. If the West does not wake up before the Persian version of ISIS attains nuclear capabilities, we will enter a period where the most sadistic and extreme Islamic regime will be able to threaten the entire free world.
