Awesome: German firm cancels contract to renovate Iranian port

Under heavy pressure from Israel, a German firm has canceled a contract to renovate the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas (pictured).
Israel's ambassador to Berlin told Chancellor Angela Merkels' top aides, as well as foreign ministry officials, that Iran has been exporting weapons from that port bound for Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

Ambassador Yoram Ben Ze'ev stressed that the Gaza-bound weapons ship "Francop," which was recently apprehended by the Israel Defense Forces in the Mediterranean, had been dispatched from that Iranian port.

A political official said that the Israeli embassy received word just over a week ago of a deal in the works between the Hamburg Company, which is partly owned by the German government, and the Iranian agencies.

Ben Ze'ev stressed that Israel viewed the contract as German assistance to an Iranian arms deal with terror organizations, and a violation of United Nations resolutions.

At Israel's request, German officials contacted the company owners and hinted that ir preferred the deal be terminated. Several days later, the company announced that it would withdraw from the contract.
Now, if only we could get a few other countries to cancel their contracts with Iran....

...if only we could "take out a contract" on the demonic Islamofascist dictators of Iran?

I don't think it's "awesome" that anyone needs to apply pressure to the country which meticulously planned the Holocaust to not assist a current Nazi-Islamic regime aimed at destroying the Jewish nation and its people.
