General Soleimani ‘martyr of Quds’: Hamas chief Haniyeh

General Qassem Soleimani is a “martyr of Quds” for he devoted his life to supporting the Palestinian people’s struggle against Israel and his assassination by the United States is in many ways similar to crimes committed by the Israeli regime, says Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh.

General Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), was assassinated in a US strike in Baghdad on Friday, alongside Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iraq’s pro-government Hashd al-Sha’abi forces.

A huge sea of mourners, streaming from all the adjoining streets, descended on the iconic Engelab Square in central Tehran early Monday morning and rallied to Azadi Tower in the capital’s west as they chanted “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.”

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei led the prayers over the general’s coffin and the remains of his companions at Tehran University, his voice cracking several times with emotion which caused the massive crowd to weep.

Speaking at the funeral procession in Tehran on Monday, Haniyeh condemned the US strike, which was personally authorized by President Donald Trump.

“We have come to Iran to condole with Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei, the Iranian government and nation,” Haniyeh said.

“He [Gen. Soleimani] was the commander of the IRGC Quds Force and he is a martyr of Quds,” the Hamas official said.

Haniyeh also sent condolences to General Soleimani’s family and described him as one of the “flag-bearers of resistance against Zionist and American plots.”

Haniyeh said he was in Iran “to express our true and sincere feelings about a dear brother and a martyred commander – a commander who made many sacrifices for Palestine and the resistance until he achieved the position he has today.”

‘A crime similar to Zionist atrocities in Palestine’

Haniyeh said this “brutal crime” by the Americans is representative of the “criminal mentality” that is at work in the occupied Palestinian lands.

“The criminal mentality that led to Commander Soleimani’s assassination and martyrdom is the same mentality that drives the minds of the Zionist regime’s thugs, the same mentality and policy that assassinates and kills Palestinians every day,” he said.

He said Hamas owes its current prowess to General Soleimani’s wisdom. The Palestinian resistance, he said, won’t back away from combating Israel and the fight will continue “until we purge all enemies from the noble Quds.”

New Quds Force chief pledges vengeance

Brigadier General Esmail Qaani, who was named the new Quds commander by the Leader on Friday, said in a statement that Iran will no doubt avenge the assassination.

“Steps will be definitely taken” to avenge General Soleimani’s blood, which Qaani said has set in motion a series of steps that will lead to America’s expulsion from the region.

US ‘elimination’ from region only acceptable retribution

Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of the IRGC’s Aerospace Division, echoed the remarks and said the only possible revenge for General Soleimani’s blood would be the total “elimination” of America from the region.

Launching a few missiles, destroying a base or even Trump’s death will not sufficiently avenge the blood of such a martyr, General Hajizadeh asserted, adding “the oppressed nations of the region will have to be rid of America’s evil.”

    Iran and the hype

    By Benjamin Fulford Letters to the Editor  0 Comments

    Benjamin,

    It’s been a while since I’ve responded to one of your posts.  Before I dig into the latest update, let me preface this with the fact I know you report on things as you hear them, not as they are or we wish they are in real life.

    Soleimani was a butcher.  He is responsible for the deaths of THOUSANDs of people and hundreds of U.S. soldiers.  Unlike you, I have seen the attacks the guy has planned on U.S. service members and the raw intel from his activities throughout the Middle East.  I also know his death is a severe blow to the regime.  I’m not sure who on the Pentagon side is feeding you information, but I can tell you as a matter of fact that we should have taken this guy out in 2009 when we had solid intel where he was in Iraq.  We would have saved the world a number of innocent deaths.

    As far as China is concerned, they have meddled in almost every aspect of American culture, politics, and even entertainment.  To say they have aims of turning the U.S. into a communist country is legitimate and focused.  I don’t buy the narrative they are “here to help.”  Google’s aid to China with technology is nothing short of treason, and all the execs at Alphabet should be tried and shot for their activities in China.

    You never reference the “Tech Bro’s” and their continued efforts to censor and subjugate the American people via the technology and financial mechanisms, even though they have used the same tactics on you with regard to payments.  I would think that topic would be first and foremost in figuring out what and who is pulling the strings.

    Finally, I don’t see the world trying to “save” the United States, given the fact most of the world is corrupt to the core.  Even Europe is corrupt to the core.  The only way to truly liberate humanity is to burn down the entire system and put people in charge that understand and practice selfless service.  I would imagine that the list of non-corruptible people on this planet is extremely small.  Certainly none of them work for the United Nations, as it is the most morally and physically bankrupt organization on the planet, rife with corruption and power-drunk woke-tards.

    What I see is a concerted effort by the Elite across the planet to divide the world into factions and continue more of the same—debt, slavery, pain, and suffering.

    Best,

    Thanks for that information, S.  Many sources did tell me Soleimani was a Zionist agent playing his part to try to start their planned war between Christianity and Islam.  The important thing is to not let them fool us into killing each other so that we become weak enough for final enslavement by the Zionists.

    As far as the tech companies go, I do see them as a problem, since they have been censoring me from Day One.  My view is that the tech companies should be either nationalized or regulated like public utilities.

    The other thing I want to make perfectly clear is that I do not support a Chinese takeover of the United States.  My view is that the other Anglo-Saxon democracies—Canada, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand—are in the best position to help restore true Democracy to the United States.

    Anyway, we must keep fighting until humanity is liberated from these gangsters.

    —BF
