Following a U.S. airstrike at Baghdad International Airport that killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, considered one of Iran’s most powerful military leaders, many media outlets and Democrats are slamming the mission as reckless and a knee-jerk reaction. Muslim scholar and Independent Women’s Forum visiting fellow Dr. Qanta Ahmed joins Fox & Friends Weekend to discuss why this was a strategic and tactical mission that should be celebrated.
“I have been speaking to all of my friends and contacts in Iran where Soleimani had a tremendous grip through his leadership and plans with PMF and they’re celebrating; they’re exchanging cakes with each other; they’re congratulating each other. To see the United States criticizing the president for this emphatic, long overdue, much indicated rebuke, is disgraceful and it makes you question what their interests really are.”
“Soleimani was the mastermind of Iranian hegemony over the region, responsible for hundreds of deaths, thousands of deaths in many many nations,” she added. “There’s no criticism that legitimate for this targeting.”
These women provide great insight into Soleimani‘s reign of terror.
Over the weekend, two women, Dr. Qanta Ahmed, a Muslim physician from Great Britain, and native Iranian journalist/producer at Voice of America Persian Service Masih Alinejad, were interviewed by Fox News, and they had strong words for those in the West who criticized President Trump’s airstrike that killed Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.
Ahmed called the critics of Trump “completely morally bankrupt and craven,” adding, “It makes you question what their interests really are.”
Alinejad, who said her own brother was jailed in Iran in front of his small children for protesting against the theocratic, despotic Iranian regime, said she was shocked when she saw the Western media “calling him a hero.”
Asked what she thought of the criticism of Trump from those in the West, Ahmed said, “Completely morally bankrupt and craven, their response.” More
Good for these two ladies. Happy to hear their perspectives, and first-hand accounts of relatives, friends, and colleagues in Iran. A completely different picture than our MSM would have us believe.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
