Hezbollah Unveils Giant Soleimani Statue Near Border With Israel

Donate

On February 15, Hezbollah unveiled a giant statue of Iran’s top commander Qassem Soleimani, who was assassinated in January in a US airstrike, was unveiled in southern Lebanon, near the border with Israel.

The figure of the killed Quds Force leader was put up in the border village of Maroun al-Ras. It became a part of the “resistance museum.”

Soleimani and several other prominent Iranian and Iraqi commanders were killed in a US strike outside Baghdad’s International Airport on January 3. This US move put the entire region on the brink of an open military conflict, caused a wide-scale crisis and eventually undermined the positions of the US in the region.

      Both Turkish and Israeli policies have failed in the region.

      • Jake321

        Well, the Israeli policy of letting Assad live has so far not failed. And their policy of letting their enemies kill each other sure is working. There lots more.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Hezbollah is the tops.

  • ruca

    Thanks for the great video Southfront.

  • Jake321

    And in honor of this Israel killed another couple of top Islamist Iranian generals. Looks like the US and Israel will keep providing job opportunities for Hezbollah sculptors.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Saudi newspaper, Zionists failed to deter Iran and have failed. Tehran has rapidly replaced any officers, in the same way as it quickly slotted a Hizballah loyalist close to Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah into the vacancy left by the US assassination of Al Qods chief Qassem Soleimani on Jan. 3. The Guards don’t leave missing links in their chain of command – either in Syria or in Iraq. It also conceded that Iranian footprint in Syria, Lebanon and Iran is now irreversible.

        It seems that it’s now or never for the Grater isreal. I’m rooting for never.

        • Jake321

          Nahhhhhhhhh…it seems it’s been a one way street to an Israel from the River to the Sea, piece by piece, for the past 75 years. Mostly due to the Palestinian leadership’s arrogant stupidity in thinking war and violence can get them the whole enchilada or way more than ever possible. They turned down their own state way back then and they got the Nakba. They just keep turning down shrinking offers after their wars and violence. But yes, it’s close to their second Nakba, unfortunately. And Iran will glow in the dark if they seriously try militarily to help the Palestinians remove Israel.

          • Ashok Varma

            You are naive or just a ignorant bigot. Persian civilization has lasted 3,000 years and half the world speaks a language influenced by them from Hindi, Urdu, Dari, Farsi and various dialects. Have you heard of the Taj Mahal? the problem with internet bots is their ignorance or deliberate malice.

          • Jake321

            Were did I dump on Persia? I just noted the reality that if the Islamist Iranians were ever stupid enough or suicidal enough to seriously militarily try to help the Palestinians win a war with Israel, Israel would return the favor and actually destroy Iran as a functioning country and society. And that likely would include a little help from the US if needed. And would for sure involve at least Israeli’s tactical nukes as required. Just the reality. Do you have a problem with reality?

        • May Eretz Yisrael forever be the self-destructive and unfulfilled syphilitic, homosexual fantasy of the jewish psychopathic hive mind. A people that f—ed up deserve to holocaust themselves in an auto-genocide.

            As if I only have one computer, not to mention an iPhone or two. But I don’t play that game.

          • Ashok Varma

            These people operate from troll centres like call centres so banning is not possible. His 50,000 posts are probably done by several people or programs. If it was a real person they would be dead of stress of being awake 24 hours and not eating but glued to the PC. Namaste. time to go now.

            Looks like a professional troll or a bot. No one has so much time.

          • BlueInGreen

            I find myself increasingly agreeing with the Professional troll idea. Indeed, 46,000~ish individual posts is alarming no matter what the context.

            Very disturbing to say the least Ashok Varma, very unsettling…

        I post in Rome as the Romans do. Lots if folk here oust vile and viscous anti-Israel and anti-Jewish crap, some seeming right from the Daily Stormer. And I don’t make a habit of calling for genocide as lots of folk here do. But I do warn that any attempt at genocide will be met in kind. And I assume that an article is posted to be commented on. I didn’t note that there is a rule that only favorable comments are allowed.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      He is a Jew PUNK and claims to be an Americunt, but his grasp of English is that of a third grader with poor syntax. I caught him out on his poor spelling of TRULY which many people with ESL make. Also he only comments on news items with Iran, Hezbollah and Palestine which is typical of hasbara as they are trigger world. Also his knowledge of anything Americunt is very poor. Had no idea about California politics or even US economy.

      • Jake321

        And you lie as always. I didn’t even use the word “truly” in this thread. It was “really.” You just can’t read simple English. And what do you know if my California? You’re such a loser you couldn’t even live here except on the street with the other losers. Mostly, you’re a fake. A drunk Putz Putin Troll playing dumb, bigoted hick.

      • Saladin

        Actually some ESL speakers tend to have zero spelling mistakes and abundance of grammar mistakes , jake is a joo from the west coast, Verner is a Palestinian with a thesaurus and Zionism=Evil is a Pakistani

        While most Pakistanis are Arab-Wannabes our friend Zionism=Evil is an American-Wannabe with an anti Russian bias

        • Jake321

          You got me right. Verner is a snowflake loser. Guess that might be consistent with your call. I missed Zionism=Evil’s anti-Russian bias. I thought he was a typical drunk Putz Putin Troll just playing an ignorant, bigoted American hick. But you seem so good at this you must be a Putz Putin Troll. I’ve found that the really good ones have perfect English like you and tend to be professional linguists. Oh, and hide their posting history.

    • Bobby Twoshoes

      I think hes been at Hasbara training camp, he used to just talk absolute nonsense but he’s started lying more strategically now. He even made me waste time researching one of his claims recently.

      • Jake321

        And you found that I was correct as usual.

      • BlueInGreen

        I’ve more or less had a similar experience with ‘Jake321’. Although ‘Jake321’ was civil with me last time we talked, I will give credit where credit is due.

        The biggest red-flag regarding ‘Jake321’ is that the account has racked up well over 43,000 individual posts (closing in on 43,500). One can only shutter to imagine just how dedicated a single human-being would have to be in order to sit down and write that many messages on Disqus. That number alone is enough of a basis for arguing in favor that ‘Jake321’ is not a single person but multiple people under the guise of one name. And if it is only one person or a potential bot then I only feel pity since ‘Jake321’ is literally wasting away in Disqus threads related to Hezbollah, Iran and Israel (funny coincidence that is, definitely no correlation to be had there). More over what I’ve noticed most glaringly is that there is no true conversation being initiated when ‘Jake321’ comments on somebody else’s post. Almost all of ‘Jake321’ replies are meant to mock, prod, pretentiously gloat, rabble-rouse, ignorantly comment on military matters in which ‘Jake321’ has little to no knowledge in, act like a prick and more or less cause civil discourse not to happen. Whether or not this is just ‘Jake321’ own feelings in where he has true contempt for Iran, Hezbollah (Shias in general which would make him a bigot) and this is his weird way of getting back at Iran or Hezbollah or protecting Israel/America from them by unjustly putting down random people on a niche military website, I can’t really say but it is disturbing conceptually.

        Circling back to a point I made earlier. Personally speaking I can’t imagine wasting my days away just responding to random persons on a rather niche military website. Doesn’t seem like a healthy thing to be doing all-day. I’ve been on Disqus for around 3 years and the total number of comments I made are 571. This is in stark contrast to ‘Jake321’s 43,000~ish posts. Still boggles my mind how ‘Jake321’ has that many messages, it feels inhuman to be completely sincere.

        I don’t know really what to think honestly, ‘Jake321’ is entitled to his opinion as well as position on the matters being discussed but as always I push for cordial discourse that fosters a well-balance conducive environment for intellectual discussion. ‘Jake321’ doesn’t seem be to keen on the discussion aspect of Disqus unfortunately.

        • Jake321

          Very good response. And some of us do have obsessive hobbies and an ability to multitask and need little sleep. But it is that time. You’re civil. I’m civil. Someone wants to commit genocide against Israel and Jews, I’m not so civil. Want to dump on the US, if unjustified, I will dump back. Anyway, I find it quite educational. Learn to know my enemies way better. And maybe trigger them a wee bit.

        • It is probable that “Jake321” is used by a hasbara cell, and therefore will never engage in civil discourse as a matter of general principle. The psychopathological obsession with anything related to Palestine and Lebanon is the hallmark of the zionist hive mind.

          • And it circles back like a vulture to feast ritualistically on posts more than hour old.

          • And downvotes the observation. What’s the matter, Jakey? Got a bowel blockage this morning?

          • Or, should I say, is the cell’s Tay-Sachs acting up?

          • Aww, such a poor loser, Jakey.

          • Heinrich Himmler.

          • Jakey gets golden showers as a performance award from Netanyahoo.

          • Okay, Jakey. It was a ton of fun forcing you to adhere to the ADL’s standard playbook of not engaging your true opponents directly. So, watch out for that gas chamber as you head home from a hard day of trolling.

          • Jake321

            You guys forgot to sign off with 88.

            Lol. Its in their genes.

          • Liberal guy

            Yes indeed

        • verner

          and how many likes has he collected? and yes close to 46000 boggles the mind.

          • BlueInGreen

            Really off-putting isn’t it? Words can’t describe just how weird that is Verner, just doesn’t feel right. 46,000……Forty-Six…THOUSAND! oh my god man….

            Replying to such person also calls into question one’s own sanity especially given just how quickly a thread involving ‘Jake321’ can devolve from honest discussion into vitriolic banter. I’ve seen enough of that in my life already but it seems I can’t get away from it no matter how hard I try.

            I just don’t know what to say anymore. I’ll keep posting relevant information to certain topics that SouthFront puts up whilst trying to keep myself out of the feeding frenzy. Nothing more or less really I can do.

          • FlorianGeyer

            I blocked Jake the fake many months ago.
            It safe a lot of space :)

          • BlueInGreen

            I’m coming around to it myself eventually. Normally I don’t advocate for blocking people but ‘Jake321’ seems to be a case where blocking might be a necessity due to just how many messages he floods SouthFront articles with.

            This article alone has racked up over 200 comments with a decent amount (if not the bulk) being comments from ‘Jake321’. Literally a torrent of posts from this one account…..

          • Jake321

            And nary a mention of the constant call here for genocide against the Jews, about the vile and viscous bigoted comments about Jews, the crap that seems to come right from the Daily Stormer. That’s just fine with you it appears. Oh, well, we all have our own priorities and morals I guess.

          • Jake321

            No one knows how many actual likes anyone has on Disqus anymore since the auto down voting bot has been around the past several mouths. One poor guy got something like a trillion down votes. But before that, the Putz Putin the Poisoner Trolls used up voting bots for self-aggrandizement. Guess you are as clueless about Disqus as about most else.

        • Liberal guy

          Ya

        • Bobby Twoshoes

          Very insightful; I was trying to work in some aspect of “or someone more competent has taken over the sock account” but I try to keep it short and snappy. Sometimes though a longer post with well thought out and reasoned arguments like yours is even better.

      • Liberal guy

        Ya so true

        It must be early for you being in California. Your buddy kick you out of bed or something?

        • Very early in California, but the middle of the day in Tel Aviv.

          • Ashok Varma

            I also checked the time. He/bot has been posting from 3 am and proves that either he/she is lonely, retarded and isolated or a squatter resident of occupied Palestine. Don’t need a world clock for that.

  • LR captain

    i would expected to destroy this statue. But if they don’t it shows just bad things are getting for them.

    • Jake321

      Why should they wast their efforts on a stone Islamist Iranian general when they are having such fun killing Islamist Iranian generals in the flesh?

    • Hezbollah should run a sewage line up to the statue so that it can piss on Israel.

      • Traiano Welcome

        LOL! Now that is innovative!

      • Jake321

        That would waste water and Hezbollah needs a lot regardless of its color.

        • LR captain

          @The_Angry_Jew:disqus Im not happy that i can’t have a decent conversation with anyone because of Jake321 harassing me, so im blocking him and using my time. to the Proper operation against Hezbollah down into an article. with a few drawn maps with most stuff being on squad level. i can’t put down losses for sides as you are spec ops reserve and are better trained and equipped then the standard infantry. i hope as a soldier you might appreciate the effort that i put into it and actually take the dangers i show IDF soldiers in seriously as i would look forward to reading your comments. and please no Jericho III Nukes this time.

          • <>

            No problem, about Jake321 he’s on my side and I support him. I blocked enough trolls that insulted me, you can do the same.

          • Jake321

            I never block anyone. I find most all very educational.

          • Jake321

            Blocked or not, it will be informative to see you guys go at each other…in words before the bullets. Kind of glad I’m in Sunny California.

      India called in the Turkish ambassador and read him the riot act to stop sponsoring terrorism.

          • Ashok Varma

            Surely, but making sheer ignorant statements needs to be corrected. These types of hasbara bots aim to create disharmony in nations. India is a mature pluralistic society and a real democracy and Modi does not represent 1.4 billion Indians of all faiths.

          • Jake321

            True, no one represents 1.4 billion Indians of all faiths. As an aside, I find it strange that you dump on your Right Wing sectarian nationalists while most always making common cause with Right Wing sectarian nationalists of other countries, especially those it seems with a neo-Nazi, anti-Israel, anti-Jewish bent.

          • Jake321

            You mean if Congress gets elected. And you supported Palestine for over 50 years before. A lot of good that did them. Anyway, the Indians are smart folk and will continue to work and trade with Israel for its high technology. And it may also want to trade with Palestine for its world class Hummus and Olive Oil.

          • Jake321

            Maybe. But you sure need to work on your English.

        • That would explain the S-400 deal the Indians are working out. Jews can always be counted on to be middlemen in arms deals.

          • Jake321

            As well as direct salesmen. India is the top buyer of Israeli arms and Israel is one of India’s top arms suppliers. And the PM of India doesn’t seem too fond of any Muslims so he is on an arms buying spree including from Russia.

    • Garga

      Why not? It’s all plus:

      – A statue can’t shoot back the brave IDF, so they are safe.
      – As a psychological plus, taking revenge out of an statue may even help them overcome the disaster of 2006.
      – Target practicing with an statue will definitely keep them busy NOT to target practice with unarmed Palestinian women, elderly, disabled and children.

      I don’t think the great general has any objection, considering the 3rd.

      • Jake321

        Speaking of generals, a couple more top Islamist Iranian ones are on their way home in body bags thanks to Israel’s expanded target practice it seems.

  • Ashok Varma

    Hezbollah stands out as the strongest anti-terror force and bulwark against Turkish and Saudi fanned terrorism.

    • Jake321

      That must be why Hezbollah is internationally listed as a terrorist organization? Well, fine with me when these terrorists kill each other. The more the merrier.

    • CHAOS

      That’s why Iran is one of those who made the Middle East this way in the past.

    • verner

      but the middle east will need turkey when they go about to take out the squatters or the jews once and for all. erdogan may hate assad somewhat but rest assured he hates netanyahu more, in fact so much that netanyahu must be strung up once they have the jews over the barrel,

      • Ashok Varma

        India was the leader of the non-aligned movement along with Indonesia and the issue of Palestine was supported by the whole group and Zionist crimes and annexation of lands is again at the forefront of global issues.

        • verner

          yep and at the same time the disunited states of A is attempting to give the jews the rest of palestine and reduce the palestinians to inmates in an extension of concentration camp gaza. truly shameful but the author behind the ‘deal of the century is dunny the dunce’s son in law, jared kushner, but regardless of that, the deal will fail miserably.

          • Ashok Varma

            This “deal of the century” is worse than any of Trump’s ponzi schemes and even US vassals like Saudis, UAE, Jordan and Egypt gave it the cold shoulder. It is simply not possible considering demographics and regional trends. No country with any conscience can support such injustice against the long suffering people of Palestine.

          • verner

            but the jews in diaspora and aipac and sheldon adelson and lots of other jewish groups/organisations are in favour of the deal and they have bought and paid for it when the bought the lawmakers on the hill.

          • Jake321

            Some do, some don’t. And sorry you’re not as competent as they are in terms of politics.

          • Jake321

            Well, if history is any guide, the next one will be worse. Damn, there may not be a next one, just a second Nakba.

          • Jake321

            Some people bring on some of their own suffering. Making war and using violence as a negotiating ploy has a tendency to do that.

          • Jake321

            True. And the next deal will be a second Nakba.

        • Saladin

          India is now a staunch friend of a Israel, is the largest weapon buyer from Israel, and is persecuting muslims in Kashmir in methods and scales that the Zionists can only dream about

          • <>

            India should clean Kashmir from all Muslims and deport them back to their stinky Pakistan. China has also learnt that the only way to deal with the terroristic Muslims is to put them in camps.

          • Jake321

            YEP!

        • Jake321

          But your current Hindu nationalist leader doesn’t seem to like ANY Muslims much and sure likes doing business with Israel. Try to keep up and move beyond the last Century.

      • Jake321

        Such delusional wet dreams you have.

  • verner

    good example of what they belive in but the most imortant thing is to terminate the existence of the jews in palestine – either they leave voluntrily or the hard way since no one has any use of the murdering lying and thieving jews, in the middle east or in europe or anywhere else.

      Give it a try big guy.

    Haha losers, but it’s a good target practice for us :-)

  • Traiano Welcome

    This presents the IDF over the border with a tough choice: “Do we take pot shots at the statue and risk triggering the next Lebanon war by a stray bullet? Or do we just play nice and look away …”

    • <>

      We will take down that statue and Lebanon when the time is right, but first Gantz need to win the elections.

  • Jakey called in reinforcements.

  • verner

    I see that joke321 is polluting this thread as well and since he adds noting of value he should be ignored full stop.
