Iran humiliates the once-great United Kingdom yet again by invading Her Majesty's embassy in Tehran.
Hundreds of Iranian radicals stormed the British compound in Tehran last night, replacing the Union flag with a Palestinian one in protest against Israel’s military offensive in the Gaza Strip.
British officials will be assessing whether the security breach, unprecedented in recent years, was an isolated incident or presages further violent demonstrations.
A hardline Iranian news agency said that protests against Britain and Egypt, whose embassy was also targeted, would continue.
Unless I'm missing something, this "protest" is an act of war against sovereign British territory. More proof that the Brits would rather surrender than fight.
British diplomats are maintaining a low-key public stance on the incident - which involved up to 300 people - in order to limit any repeat and robbing the Tehran regime of any satisfaction. But a strong behind-the-scenes protest from London is certain.
