News organization, Al Arabiya was founded in 2003 and is a competitor to Al Jazeera. They are reporting that the eulogist at the funeral procession of slain Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani in Iran put an 80-million-dollar prize on Trump’s head on live state TV.
he said, addressing a large crowd in Iran’s north-eastern city of Mashhad.
“We are 80 million Iranians, if each one of us puts aside one American dollar, we will have 80 million American dollars, and we will reward anyone who brings us [Trump]’s head with that amount.”
(I’m not going to make a Kathy Griffin joke here… this is too serious. Or too funny, depending one how you look at it.)
The funeral procession was broadcast live on Iran’s Channel One as the eulogist made his proposal. Iranian officials, including Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani, as well as several senior IRGC commanders, have vowed revenge against the U.S. threatening the White House.
According to the Iranian Labour News Agency, MP Abolfazl Abutorabi said,
“We can attack the White House itself, we can respond to them on the American soil. We have the power, and God willing we will respond in an appropriate time.”
God help us all.
