American Mainstream Media Mourns Death Of Iran Terrorist Leader

Typical. And oh so predictable…


Text in this post is from the first link. Other link is in a similar vein.

(FILES) In this picture taken on September 14, 2013, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's Quds Force, Gen. Qassem Soleimani, is seen as people pay their condolences following the death of his mother in Tehran. For a man widely reported to be playing a key role in helping Iraq's routed military recover lost ground, Qassem Soleimani, 57, the commander of Iran's feared Quds Force, remains invisible.

On Monday, Grabien founder Tom Elliott released a new video montage that showed many in the American mainstream media idolizing and mourning terrorist Qassim Suleimani, leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’s Quds Force, after he was killed by American forces last week in Iraq.

Suleimani’s funeral was this week after the terrorist leader was killed last week in a Trump-authorized drone strike by the U.S. military on a convoy that he was riding in as he left Baghdad International Airport.


  • CBS’s Holly Williams described him as a “revered figure” and a “war hero.” “He wasn’t well-known in the United States, but he was one of the most powerful figures in the Middle East, sometimes even touted as a possible future leader of Iran.” “For America, though, General Suleimani was a problem.” “Even many of Soleimani’s enemies admitted he was a military genius. He spearheaded Iran’s involvement in a Syrian Civil War hoping to shore up the Syrian regime’s grip on power. … By killing Qasem Suleimani, the U.S. has stripped Iran of an inspirational military leader. But it’s also further inflamed dangerously high tensions. Iran has already vowed to take, quote, harsh revenge.”


  • CNN’s Fareed Zakaria said Suleimani was “revered” in Iran: “Imagine the French Foreign Legion, at the height of the French empire. This guy is regarded in Iran as a completely heroic figure, personally very brave.”


  • CNN’s Anderson Cooper, likened Suleimani to the World War II leader, Charles DeGaulle, calling him “personally incredibly brave” and reporting that “the troops love him.”


  • CBS’s National Security Contributor Michael Morell praised Suleimani’s military prowess, calling him an “evil genius.”


  • ABC’s Martha Raddatz — reporting from Iran in a headscarf — appeared awestruck at the display: “I have been in the midst of anti-America protests in Iran before, but nothing like this. A powerful combination of grief and anger with shouts of ‘death to America’ echoing through the streets around us. This morning, mourners filling the streets of Iran’s capital of Tehran for the funeral of General Suleimani killed by that U.S. drone strike last week. Aerial images capturing the sea of Iranians packing the streets to pay tribute to a man revered by many here.”


  • NBC’s Richard Engel, also reporting from Iran, said the United States had elevated the terror mastermind into martyr status: “Now, after this killing, you saw people not only going out in the streets in millions, as Ali was describing, he was there, but throwing articles of their own clothing up onto the coffin so that attendants could rub it on the coffin so that they would have some sort of memento of an object that was close to Qassim Suleimani’s body. They turned him into a martyr, if not a saint. And we’re seeing now all around the region Shiite groups, allies of Iran speaking in one voice, and that is that U.S. troops have to leave the region, should be forced out of the region starting with Iraq.”

    The western political spectrum is linear but doesn’t lie on a straight line. It resembles a horseshoe. The ends of a horseshoe approach each other. At these ends, it is hard to tell the difference between far right and far left. Both share authoritarianism, fascism, and antisemitism.
    However, the ideaology of far-leftism is uniquely defined by traits and ideas such as: appeasement, post modernism, multiculturalism, cultural relativism, Islamo-philia, and AntiIsreal-ism.
    I am not surprised that number 2 terrorist of the world is praised by the left.
    PS: Number 1 terrorist is Khamenei.

      Good point !
      Take TOI :
      Aviation experts say that the crashed ukrainian jet was likely shot down according to wing + body of jet pierced by many fragments. But TOI (times of Israel) – among the mouthpieces of the global leftists/ liberals at work in Israel
      work hard to sell us the version of the iranian butcher gov. ! So, TOI stands for Times Of Iran , not Israel! Know your enemies like TOI !
      TOI is pretty obviously supporting the iranian butcher/nazi gov. by presenting them as victims of the
      mean, mean US president who killed poor, innocent mr. solejmani !
      Thats why TOI does everything to
      take down Pres. Trump as well as PM Nethanjahu !
      Know your enemies – the globalists, leftists, liberals !
      Once in power, they will show their true, ugly face by imposing
      their dictatorship on the globe !
