Irony of Ironies: ISIS claims attacks on Iran parliament, Khomeini shrine

How fitting that the world's leading sponsor of terrorism, Iran, is struck with its own medicine. 
I don't have any sympathy for them.    

 NY Post reports the Islamic State group claimed a pair of attacks Wednesday on Iran’s parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, which have killed two security guards and wounded more than 30 people, with the siege at the legislature still underway.

It marks the first attack in Iran claimed by the extremist group, which is at war with Iranian-backed forces in Syria and Iraq. In a message posted through its Aamaq News Agency, the IS group claimed its fighters were behind the assaults.

The group often claims attacks around the world, even when links to the group cannot be confirmed and appear dubious. Iranian security officials have not said who is behind the attacks.
