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.
