An Iranian American activist said she is completely outraged at the “propaganda machine” glorifying the Iranian Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani, killed by an American airstrike in Iraq.
“The people in Iran are happy that this man who is responsible for the slaughter of so many people is gone,” she said in the viral video. “This man has not only the blood of Americans on his hand but the blood of Iranians, Iraqis, Yemenis, Afghans…since when did we start mourning the death of a terrorist?”
She said many Iranians were celebrating Soleimani’s death by giving out cakes and cookies in the streets in Iran.
“Thank you, Mr. Trump, for making a very hard decision and for having the moral courage to do something that a lot of world leaders would never have had.”
