Deadly couriers — 2

The Cyprus Daily News has obtained new details of the case of an attempt by the Iranian special services to kill several Israeli citizens in Cyprus.

According to information that has become available to our editorial office, the trial of the arrested Azerbaijani agent of the Iranian special services will begin on December 6th.  Four Pakistanis and one Lebanese will also appear before the court.  All of them are in custody. All of them face charges.

Several charges have been brought against the Azeri.  Among them are the possession of firearms, the possession of ammunition and forgery of documents.  According to our information, also included charges of attempted murder or conspiracy to murder and terrorism.

A total of eight Pakistanis and Lebanese who worked as food delivery couriers linked to the Azeri hitman were charged with conspiracy, conspiracy to commit a crime, possession of firearms, possession of ammunition, forgery, and terrorism.

The police managed to prove and attach to the case two pistols found during the investigation.  A third pistol, found in the occupied part of Cyprus and transported to a free territory, could not be attached to the case due to procedural circumstances and due to lack of evidence.

In the shadow of Iran

As reported in a previous article, the vast majority of food delivery couriers operating in Cyprus are Pakistani.
This is far from the only common feature for them. Almost all Pakistani couriers in Cyprus are Shia Muslims.

Pakistan is a Muslim state.  Its full name is the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.  On the flag and coat of arms of Pakistan there is a symbol of Islam — a crescent moon and a star.  Sunni Islam, according to the country’s constitution, is the state religion of Pakistan.  In Pakistan, there are Islamic Sharia courts that monitor the compliance of the country’s laws with the canons of Islamic law.  Of Pakistan’s nearly 220 million people, 95 % are Muslim, including 75 % Sunnis and 20 % Shiites.

Pakistan, like most Muslim countries, has a high level of violence and religious intolerance against religious and ethnic minorities.  The entire history of Pakistan is an endless series of acts of violence and terror by Sunni Muslims against religious minorities, which, in turn, often leads to retaliatory violence and terror against the Sunni majority.

Pakistani Shiites are supported by Iran, which seeks to extend its influence to all countries where Shiites live.
The Iranian authorities and special services support, finance and thus control most of the Shiite communities around the world.

Agents of Iranian intelligence agencies and/or Iranian-sponsored terrorist organizations such as «Hezbollah» operate in Shiite communities around the world.  Several «Hezbollah» fighters were arrested in Cyprus for preparing terrorist attacks and possessing explosives.

Iran is recruiting militants in Pakistan and has created a «Zainabiyun» brigade from Pakistani Shiites to participate in regional conflicts in Syria, Yemen, and Iraq.  The Iranian-backed «Sipah-e- Sahaba» and «Sipah-e-Muhammad» Shiite terrorist organizations operate in Pakistan.
All this is done within the framework of Iranian policy of expansion and increasing influence through wars and support for terrorism.

All of the above does not mean that in Pakistan, and in the entire Middle East, Iran is opposed by the forces of democracy and good.  Not at all.  They are no better than the Iranian regime and differ from it only in a different kind of the same religion — Islam.  Only Israel is a democratic country — the only one in the entire Middle East.

The Pakistani authorities are vigorously pursuing Shiite terrorists and therefore they flee Pakistan in search of a safe haven.  But for some reason they flee, mostly not to their beloved Iran, but to Europe, the USA and Canada to the damned infidels whom they hate and despise.  There is information that the Iranian special services are actively helping fighters of Shiite terrorist organizations move to the EU countries and settle in them.

All Pakistanis living in Cyprus and working as couriers to deliver food entered the country illegally.  All of them first came to the northern part of the country occupied by Turkey.  They all got there under the guise of students with student visas.  All of them illegally crossed the demarcation line dividing the free territory of the Republic of Cyprus and the northern part of the island occupied by Turkey.  All of them have applied for asylum and are in Cyprus in the status of asylum seekers. Most of them have already been denied refugee status, but with the help of left-wing progressive NGOs and human rights organizations, they filed appeals in court, which allows them to legally stay in Cyprus.  Consideration of appeals in courts usually takes a very long time.

Some of them managed to conclude fictitious marriages with citizens of the European Union.

All these wonderful people skillfully use European legislation to continue living in Cyprus and receive benefits from the Cypriot budget.  There are no signs that any of them are seeking to return to their homeland or to their beloved Iran.

As previously reported, an Azeri, a Shiite recruited by the Iranian special services, was arrested in the case of an attempted murder of Israelis in Cyprus.  Cyprus police arrested five more people associated with the Iranian agent.  Among them are four citizens of Pakistan — Shiites and a Lebanese, also Shia.
According to some reports, the arrested Lebanese has connections with the Iran-controlled Shiite terrorist organization «Hezbollah», operating in Lebanon.

The investigation has information that at least one of the arrested Pakistanis is an active member of the Iran-controlled Shiite terrorist organization operating in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

All arrested Pakistanis visited the religious center of Shia Muslims in Nicosia.  This Muslim Center is located in the basement at
Chalkokondyli 23-23b (basement), 1071 Nicosia. This Muslim center was created and controlled by the Shiite imam Bargah Hussainia, a citizen of Pakistan.  He, like all his compatriots, arrived in the territory of the Republic of Cyprus from the occupied northern part.  Like all his compatriots, he declared himself a refugee and demanded to be granted asylum.  After receiving the status of an asylum seeker, Imam Bargah surrounded himself with religious followers and set about creating a Muslim Shiite religious community.  In a short time, he united under his leadership most of the Shiite Pakistanis in Cyprus.  In this center, Imam Bargah regularly conducts collective prayers, celebrates Muslim holidays and reads sermons.

The Cyprus Daily News has testimonies from several people who attended Muslim religious events at the center and heard the sermons of Imam Barqah.  According to them, Imam Bargah adheres to the canonical Muslim worldview of the Shiite persuasion and tirelessly preaches it to his supporters.  In particular, Imam Bargah believes that the whole world should be Islamized by force.  Anyone who does not profess Islam has no right to exist.  Muslims should strive for Europe and Islamize it, since it is Europe that is the main obstacle to the isamization of all mankind, Imam Bargah calls it jihad.  He encourages his supporters to bring their relatives to Cyprus and receive benefits from the Cypriots for them.  He calls the allowances received by asylum seekers from the Cypriot government as funding for the jihad.  Imam Bargah says that Christian Cypriots pay benefits to pseudo refugees from Muslim countries and thereby finance the jihad waged by Muslims against Christendom.  All this, according to Bargah, is because «Allah has deprived the mind of the unbelievers and they pay us to destroy them.»

According to some sources, Iranian «diplomats» in civilian clothes often visit the Shiite Islamic Center of Imam Bargah. Imam Bargah very often visits the Iranian Embassy in Nicosia.  In addition to him visiting the Iranian embassy some community leaders and active members of the Pakistani-Shiite community in Cyprus were seen. All this suggests that the connections of the arrested Pakistanis with the arrested agent of the Iranian special services are more natural than accidental.

Knowing all this, it becomes clear how the Iranian special services got access to the database created by Pakistani couriers, how they received information about the Israelis who were slated for liquidation and passed this information to the Azerbaijani killer.

Of particular interest is the personality of the Shiite Imam Bargah and his obvious ties with the Iranian embassy, ​​which inevitably implies a connection with the Iranian special services.

There is a large amount of information that Shiite Islamic centers very often serve as a place for preparing terrorist attacks and recruiting Muslim militants in different countries of the world.

Iran prepares conspiracies, carries out assassinations and supports terrorists around the world.

The most serious consequences of the destructive activities of Iran, at the state level financing terrorism are in the Middle East, while support the terrorism by Iranian regime is also a global problem.  After coming to power in 1979 the Ayatollahs regime has conspired and orchestrated assassinations and attacks in more than 20 countries, mainly using the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force and Ministry of intelligence and security , as well as the Hezbollah group.

Iran’s activity is growing.  Iran has stepped up its participation in conspiracies and terrorist acts around the world.  Many of them are in

Earlier, the Cyprus Daily News sent inquiries to several courier companies asking them to comment on the story of the arrested couriers and explain how most of the couriers working for these companies are Pakistani.  No replies have been received so far.

Perhaps this is due to the fact that, as it became known to the editorial board of the Cyprus Daily News, in the call center and in the management of one of these companies, the entire staff consists of immigrants from Pakistan.
