Silence begets murder

The outcome of the sham presidential election in Iran this month was the installment of an international criminal. Ebrahim Raisi’s egregious human rights record puts that of many well-known modern era henchmen to shame. He was involved in the mass murder of 30,000 political prisoners in the span of a few months.

The international community is fatally silent on a multi-pronged seminal transformation on the ground. First, the Iranian people have resoundingly rejected the regime; Second, this rejection spanned the spectrum of mafia-like factions, including the “reformers;” And, third, the mullahs’ Supreme Leader has engineered the presidency of a mass murderer to confront the Iranian people’s uprisings.
