Taylor Report interview

Featured Guest: ZAFAR BANGASH, Islamic scholar and editor of Crescent On-Line.
Description (41 minutes):
Crescent International editor and Islamic scholar Zafar Bangash notes that the U.S. assassination last Friday, Jan 3 in Baghdad killed ten people, the most prominent of which was Iranian Lt. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the architect of the defeat of ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Because of the treacherous nature of the assassination, it also turned almost all Mideast governments and parties, even those normally pro-USA, into enemies of the U.S. government.
Importantly, the Iraqi Parliament on Jan 4 declared that all foreign military forces must eventually leave the country. This is relevant to Canadians, because the Trudeau government had stationed hundreds of troops in Iraq.
Zafar observes that some Western governments and the for-profit media have termed Soleimani a ‘terrorist,’ a label he certainly doesn’t deserve. Simultaneously, these parties studiously ignore the role of the USA and its vassal states, including Canada, in the rise of ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the MEK in the Middle East.
