Qassem Soleimani, the terrorist killed in Friday’s drone strike, had an Instagram account with 70,000 followers where he posted memes of himself blowing up the White House.
The photo in question “appeared to have been taken from the 2013 film ‘Olympus Has Fallen,'” the Washington Post reported. The meme was then edited to have Soleimani himself on the South Lawn of the White House as if he is ordering air strikes.
He captioned the photo: “We will crush the USA under our feet.”
Raheem Kassam, co-host of War Room: Impeachment, took to Twitter to questions Instagram’s allowance of the meme:
“Quick thought: Instagram, Twitter, etc, banned Laura Loomer. But they let Soleimani post memes of himself blowing up the White House. Can anyone explain? Genuine Q. Not being a smartass. Would love to hear from social media folks on this.“
Here’s a pic of Soleimani’s Instagram account where he used to post memes of himself calling in air strikes on the White House while standing on the White House South Lawn.

Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of people, including American citizens. His Instagram account even featured a video of Iranians chanting “death to America,” which he captioned: “This is IRAN. The first military power in the region.”
The account was archived by the Middle East Media Research Institute. Other posts on the account include the terrorist “with leading Iranian religious and military figures and other figures from Iran and Hizbullah,” such as “Hizbullah secretary-general Hassan Nasrallah and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.”
One post was from a speech Soleimani gave in July of 2018.
“Mr. Trump, the Gambler! Don’t threaten our lives! You are well aware of our power and capabilities in the region. You know how powerful we are in asymmetrical warfare.”
