from Fellowship Of The Minds:
On January 3, at the direction of President Trump, missiles shot from American drones killed Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad, Iraq.
Soleimani was a major general in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and commander of its Quds Force, a division primarily responsible for military and clandestine operations outside of Iran. He was described by an ex-CIA operative as “the single most powerful operative in the Middle East today” and the principal military strategist and tactician in Iran’s effort to combat Western influence and promote the expansion of Shiite and Iranian influence throughout the Middle East.
Trump justified the assassination on the grounds that Soleimani was a terrorist who posed an “imminent threat” to American lives. The U.S. Defense Department said Soleimani had approved the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad on December 31, 2019, and was planning further attacks on American diplomats and military personnel.
The January 3 drone attacks incinerated the two vehicles carrying Soleimani and his companions. We are told that what remained of Soleimani was his hand wearing a ring with a large, oval, red stone like the one seen in countless photos of Soleimani.
But, as Deplorable Patriot shows in his post, “Could Iranian general Qassem Soleimani fake his death if someone gave him a hand?,” the red ring on the severed hand is not the same ring seen in photos of Soleimani when he was alive. The silver metal setting that holds the red stone is different: the setting in the severed-hand ring is grooved, but the setting is smooth in photos of Soleimani.
Add to the intrigue and mystery is the discovery by eagle-eyed netizens like Mimi B that American celebrities (Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks) and political elites (Hillary Clinton, Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, John Podesta), as well as the current president of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, have also been seen wearing rings with a large oval red stone similar to Soleimani’s. (Note: Arnold Schwarzenegger should not be included in the composite pic below — the ring he was wearing has a blue stone.)
Go here for close-ups of the red rings on Oprah, et al.
What does the red ring signify? Membership in some secret organization?
More intrigue still.
According to the jewelry website La Blingz, Soleimani’s ring is a Free Masons ring — the Sterling Silver Masonic Masonic Red Onyx Statement Ring, now marked down from $150 to $69.99.
Tweeter Mike Bravo points out Soleimani’s associates also sport the red Masonic ring.
Notice how in the picture above, Soleimani was wearing THREE similar-looking rings with red oval stones? Below is a close-up of his two hands:
Since he owned and sometimes wore several big red-stone rings at the same time, the ring on the severed hand said to be Soleimani’s may be one of them. Does this mean the hand did belong to Soleimani and he is dead after all?
