Two Muslim Women Blast Trump's Critics Over the Killing of Soleimani and Praise a 'Pivotal Moment' for Iran

While some Democrats attack Trump for attacking Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, two Muslim women are sending their own missiles toward the President’s critics.


Masih Alinejad — a journalist/producer for Voice of America Persian Service — and native British Dr. Qanta Ahmed are standing up for the Commander-in-Cheif and against those in outrage over his move against the planet’s largest sponsor of terrorism.

Speaking to Fox News, Qanta called the nay-sayers “completely morally bankrupt and craven.”

In fact, she said, their opposition “makes you question what their interests really are.”

Masih knows a thing or two about Iran — her brother was jailed there in front of his young children for protesting the regime.

Strangely, it seems some in the West like the recently departed more than do Iranians:

“Look, I have been in touch with many Iranians and I have to say that a lot of Iranians do not see Qassem Soleimani as a hero, and I’m very shocked when I see in the Western media calling him a hero. For what? For killing the Syrian children, Iraqi children, or killing the Iranian people in Iran protests.”

In light of Soleimani’s passing, Qanta explained, citizens of Iran were elated:

“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


Meanwhile, some in America are decrying our leader’s strike.

“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.”

Here’s an example from Sunday:

As for it being “long overdue,” things have certainly been percolating for quite some time:

Qanta called Soleimani a mass murderer:

“Soleimani was the mastermind of Iranian hegemony over the region — responsible for hundreds of deaths, thousands of deaths in many many nations. There’s no criticism that legitimate for this targeting.”

hegemony = (especially of countries) the position of being the strongest and most powerful and therefore able to control others.

Additionally, according to Masih via Twitter, stories of “millions of people” honoring the general during his funeral were absurd:



As explained to Fox, in the journalist’s view, neutralizing Soleimani was “a pivotal moment for Iraq, perhaps even more so than when Saddam Hussein was removed.”

And what’s happening now is about totalitarianism and hypocrisy:

“Recently 1500 people got killed and Sepah, the Revolutionary Guard, is in charge; they didn’t even allow the family of the victims to mourn, to have a public service,” Alinejad explained. “And right now this is hypocrisy. The government called for a public service for Qassem Soleimani for three days and the parents of those people who got killed by the Revolutionary Guard right now are in prison. My brother, my brother got arrested by the Revolutionary Guard in front of his small children. This (the killing of Soleimani) is the reason that the Iranian people, the victims, are very happy.”

Could this be the time for revolution?

Qanta believes so:

“The Iraqis now have a choice: Sunni Iraqis, Kurdish Iraqis and half of Iraq’s Shia are anti-Iran,” she said. “Will they seize the reins? Let’s not forget what Soleimani was planning: another repeat of the Iranian hostage situation that we saw 40 years ago. That’s what he was planning. And possibly a potential coup of Iraqi power into Iranian hands.”


If it occurs, will Democrats applaud, or is there anything Trump could do that would prompt an atta boy from the political Left?

I’m thinking military projectiles may travel thousands of miles, but compliments won’t be making their way across the aisle any time soon.
