Who will also not appear, because no one wants to be arrested in Iran for being an American spy

I'm certain they will get right on attending to these proceedings.

"According to the court's ruling, the Zionist director of the company of Facebook, or his official attorney must appear

Wait, do we know if Zuck is a Zionist? Or is this just Islamic Revolutionary speak for Jewish?

You might get more than a black eye and some fractured ribs in Iran.

I'm sure there will be no lack of volunteers to come over here and try to serve him the papers.

I think some Iranian conservatives may view us all as Zionists. I mean, we elect people who give aid to Israel. We're all guilty.

Tell Iran that until they arrest, sentence and punish the people responsible for the hostage-taking at the embassy in 1980, and various terrorist actions since then, they have no credibility in any legal matter.

As far as I'm concerned the embassy building is still US property. We should demolish it, preferably with as many Iranians inside as possible.

Mohammad Mosaddegh would like a word. The Iranians are hardly innocent, but the history of US-Iranian injustice goes back far beyond 1980.

Yeah, but generally siezing embassies and holding people hostage is a bit of a no-no.

Expel all diplomats, nationalize companies, push for sanctions, embargos, etc etc.

subpoena == under penalty.  What are they going to do if he doesn't show up - unfriend him?

Release a virus that spreads to 20% of the computers in the world but fails to deliver a payload to FBs servers due to code errors?

LIberal Iranian courts only take all ten fingers off. Leaving you your palms and wrists is seen as namby-pamby.

I'm pretty sure that no one at the embassy was involved in a CIA plot from the late 40's.

Mossadegh was overthrown in August, 1953 and it's a good bet that while none of the actual individuals involved were present in 1979, employees of the same organization (CIA) were, along with those from organizations involved in the subsequent decades-long support of Pahlavi (military attaches, etc.)

I was never saying that one was a justifiable response to the other in any case, hence my use of the word "generally"; it was meant more in a "He without sin, cast the first stone" sense and I chose an example that related to the motivation for - not excusing of - the second event.

Oh, I agree.  Like I said, they had a good case for expelling all Americans, closing the embassy, nationalizing American assets, etc.

But not just grabbing people and holding them hostage.  I mean, what was even their end game plan for that?  Hold them for years and hope the Americans do what, exactly?

I believe that originally they were being held hostage, the ransom being the return of the Shah. When he died they were left in a position where simply releasing them would've resulted in loss of face.
