After what happened in some of the Arab countries recently, he is well

Two Iranian agents arrested in Kenya were planning attacks on American,
Israeli, British or Saudi Arabian targets in the African country, the
Associated Press reported on Monday, citing unnamed Kenyan officials.

"citing unnamed Kenyan officials" In other words: horse manure.

And of course the Israel and its US lap dog is of course also has

I got news for you Nazi boi.

Everyone has plans for attacking everybody else.

It's what staff planning departments do...

Given Iran's public announcements about destroying Israel I imagine
both they and their allies have been busy for years drawing up plans
to destroy Iran, and quite right too...

this is not the first time Iran has done such acts in other nations.
bombings,assassinations,etc. even in Britain,ISTR they were killing Iranian
exiles that were against the new regime.
