    How should we remember General Soleimani?

    It is true that often, one can better assess a person by who their enemies were than by who were their friends. If we apply this maxim to the late General Qassem Soleimani, sadly assassinated by U.S. airstrike in January 2020, we see clearly that his enemies were the United States, Israel, and their allies in West Asia – Saudi Arabia and the Arab States.

    General Soleimani: Fighting globalism in the trenches

    General Qassem Soleimani was the leader in the field for Iran’s effort to rid West Asia and North Africa of the scourge of terrorism. Soleimani achieved major successes against Western-backed mercenary groups in Syria and Iraq. This ended when Soleimani was assassinated in a drone attack on January 3, 2020, on the orders of U.S. President Donald Trump. Officially, this assassination was lauded by Israel and the Saudi proxy government in Yemen.

    General Qassem Soleimani: Iconic martyr of the century

    “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. Mahatma Gandhi, John and Robert Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and Sayyid Qutb were all murdered for standing up against evil. None were saints, much less prophets or imams. 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.

    If any country has erred this century, it’s the U.S. …

    “Though we (the U.S.) spends a trillion dollars a year between our military and our intelligence and our “national security” circles, that trillion dollars has built, you know, things that can stop all the planes and the missiles and all kinds of things from other countries. But we missed the one thing other countries like China have deployed, which is not to fight at all, not firing a bullet or missile at all, but taking the U.S. out from within. And that’s what’s going on.”

    First, I would like to send my condolences to the Iranian people on the first anniversary of General Qassem Soleimani's death. This cowardly act is not a reflection of the general American public who would prefer peace with Iran. People immediately filled the streets across the country condemning Washington's actions and the potential war against Iran. I remember in Detroit alone we had several hundred people in attendance despite the bitterly cold weather.
