Hundreds of pro-Iranian regime supporters gathered outside a mosque in London on Saturday to mourn the killing of Iranian terrorist general, Qassem Soleimani.
Video from the rally outside the Islamic Centre of England shows Massoud Shadjareh calling the West the “enemy” and vowing to “make sure there are many many more Qassem Soleimanis.”
“We aspire to be like him,” Shadjareh said, “We are jealous and we want the same thing for ourselves and our loved ones.”
Massoud Shadjareh is the head of the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) which heads up the Al-Quds march each year in the UK, an event that previously included the waving of Hezbollah flags until the terror group was banned in the UK in 2019.
Last year CUFI unearthed footage of Shadjareh, appearing to urge people to wage “Jihad in Palestine” like they do in Syria.
The vigil took place following the killing of Soleimani who was a top commander in Iran and the powerful head of Iran’s Quds Force. Soleimani was Iran’s point man on using terrorist organisations, including Hezbollah and Hamas, to sow chaos, death and destruction in the Middle East and beyond.
In a statement released on Sunday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said, “General Qassem Soleimani posed a threat to all our interests and was responsible for a pattern of disruptive, destabilising behaviour in the region.
“Given the leading role he has played in actions that have led to the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians and western personnel, we will not lament his death.”
