    “Due to his legendary courage, General Soleimani was loved and admired by nearly everyone, including many of his enemies”

    TEHRAN- The previous century (20th c.e., 14th h.) featured innumerable martyrs. But only a few of their names have been chiseled prominently into the tablets of world history.

All led imperfect lives and had personal as well as intellectual flaws. Yet each became emblematic of a different facet of the struggle for God and the good against the forces of Satan that dominate the so-called modern world.
