Iran’s “moderate” President Rouhani: ‘In a few days, the life of this criminal will end’
Tehran has renewed threats against U.S. President Donald Trump’s life as the January 2, 2021, one-year anniversary of the U.S. killing Iranian terrorist mastermind Qassem Soleimani approaches.
Soleimani, who headed Iran’s foreign terrorist arm, al Quds Force, was killed near Baghdad on January 3, 2020, in a drone strike ordered by President Trump. You can read our “live” coverage of the event a year ago here, CONFIRMED: Qassem Soleimani killed by U.S. in Baghdad:
This is more than a decade too late. The Bush & Obama admins knew what Soleimani and Muhandis were up to, but were too fearful to strike. These two are responsible for the deaths of at least 600 U.S. soldiers and tens of thousands of Iraqis soldiers, police, and civilians. https://t.co/HJrxHiA5r1

At the time of the strike, he was planning attacks on U.S. armed forces and diplomats stationed in the Middle East, the Pentagon confirmed.
On Friday, Iran’s judiciary chief, Ebrahim Raisi, warned that President Trump and members of his administration will “not be safe on earth” as the regime marked Soleimani’s death.
“Do not presume that someone, as the president of America, who appeared as a murderer or ordered a murder, may be immune from justice being carried out. Never,” Raisi said. “Those who had a role in this assassination and crime will not be safe on Earth.”
Tehran could hit President Trump on American soil, Soleimani’s successor Esmail Ghaani suggested. “It’s even possible that there are people inside your home [the U.S.] that will respond to your crime,” he said on Friday.
Iran’s “Great Martyr,” Soleimani, was behind the killing of thousands of Iraqi civilians and hundreds of U.S. servicemen stationed in Iraq and the region.
The British newspaper Independent on Friday reported the treats made by Iranian regime officials:
On the streets of Tehran, giant billboards have been raised to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the United States’ 3 January assassination of Qassem Soleimani, (…).
“By committing this crime, you created a duty for freedom seekers all over the world,” his successor, General Ismail Qaani [or Esmail Ghaani], said at a ceremony on Friday marking the drone killing. “There may be some people inside your own home who will punish the criminals.” (…)
“People who were involved in this crime and assassination will no longer be safe on the Earth,” judiciary chief Ebrahim Raisi said on Friday, vowing that Iran and its partners are “determined to take hard revenge” for the assassination.
“A word to the enemy: do not think that anyone who appears in the guise of an American president as a murderer or a mastermind of a murder is immune from justice,” he said.
The remarks from the top regime officials come days after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made similar threats.
Naming President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Rouhani declared that Tehran “won’t let them get away” and had “every right to avenge the blood of their popular commander,” who died while planning terror attacks on U.S. servicemen and diplomats.
The Washington Times reported on Wednesday:
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday that President Trump will soon be dead while vowing blood vengeance for the killing of an Iranian general.
Mr. Rouhani made the threat in a speech to the Iranian Cabinet about the “martyred” Gen. Qassem Soleimani, which was posted in English on the Iranian presidential Website.
“In a few days, the life of this criminal will end and he will go to the dustbin of history,” the official Iranian government site quoted him in English as having said.
“One of the effects of this stupid and disgraceful act,” Mr. Rouhani said of the airstrike that killed Soleimani, “was that Trumpism ended.”
"Donald Trump will not be safe anywhere in the world," said Ebrahim Raisi, head of #Iran's so-called judiciary.

Rouhani, feted by the New York Time and the rest of the mainstream media as the “moderate” face of the Islamic regime, recently compared President Trump to the slain Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, waning that he will meet the same fate as the Arab tyrant who was hanged in 2006.
