Following the recent airstrike aimed at Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, tensions have escalated greatly between the United States and Iran; Soleimani who was something of a public figure in his home country had a substanstial funeral service over the weekend. During the proceedings a shocking offer was made by one of the eulogists at the ceremony.
Referencing the fact that Iran’s population numbers some 80 million people, a bounty was offered publically to kill President Donald Trump in the amount of $80 Million. Ostensibly this would be 1 dollar for each citizen of Iran. State broadcasters said, “Iran has 80 million inhabitants. Based on the Iranian population, we want to raise $80million (£61million) which is a reward for those who get close to the head of President Trump.”
President Trump has put it in no uncertain terms that any retaliation by Iran will be met with a swift response. The President had this to say:
“Iran has 80 million inhabitants. Based on the Iranian population, we want to raise $80million (£61million) which is a reward for those who get close to the head of President Trump.”
George Soros Another Ally of Iran?
George Soros is no stranger to theories which suggest he has a great deal of political power; this is thanks to his great wealth as he is well known to be a billionaire. In recent reports by Israeli news outlets, George Soros has allegedly been discovered to have closer ties to Iran than may have previously been suspected. Reports suggest that the Open Society Foundations, a network through which Soros awwards grants of money, has been working with the Iranian government.
The news comes directly from an Iranian official, foreign minister Mohammad Zarif, who discussed the funding during a hearing of the Iranian parliament. When questioned about the issue, Zarif said that he was “keeping the activity organized” and that the funding operations had been set in place since before he had taken the position of minister.
Soros has used the Open Society Foundations to fund liberal and left-wing centered organizations and figures, and the activities of the billionaire and his various shell organizations have come under great scrutiny in the last few years.
