Iranian born American Saghar Erica Kasraie explained why people are happy in Iran about Soleimani’s death in a video she posted to YouTube last week.

Kasraie, a long time Iranian activist, criticized the mainstream media for pushing “so much propaganda” and glorifying Soleimani.

“This man has not only the blood of Americans on his hand but the blood of Iranians, Iraqis, Yemenis, Afghans…since when did we start mourning the death of a terrorist?” she asked.

“The regime has been saying ‘death to America’ for 40 years,” said Kasraie. “They forced us in school to say, ‘death to America’. I was 7 years old, I didn’t know what I was saying.”

At the end of the video, Kasraie expressed her appreciation to President Donald Trump for “having the moral courage to do something that probably a lot world leaders wouldn’t have had.”
