The suspension comes a day after General Soleimani gave this interview to the press.
Iranian commentators noted that Instragram and other similar social networking services have been routinely employed by Jihadi terrorists as a recruiting tool, in spite of Instagram policies. We have seen this, too, in the United States where Anarchists and the Progressive Left employ social networking to foment civil unrest and riots in places like Ferguson and Baltimore; as well as to disrupt political rallies or spam their opponents' websites.
The Obama Administration and their confederates on Wall Street have been putting considerable pressure on social networking sites to muzzle foreign sources critical of their policies. There is even legislation pending before Congress to set up a new federal agency specifically designed to counter so-called foreign propaganda. Of course, the Washington/Wall Street interests are quite selective about who gets targeted under these proposals.

Supporters of General Soleimani have set up a new Instagram account on his behalf. His previous account had over 320,000 followers.
