The 13th election for the Iranian presidency was completed and Ebrahim Raeisi emerged as the victor, even though he is known as a murderer and executioner of political and ideological prisoners. According to all independent reports, this election had a low turnout.

Kawa Ahangari, a political analyst based in Belgium, compared the current Iranian regime to the Nazis: “The executioner cannot be a threat to the world if he/she is an individual, but we are talking about a politically established regime that fully controls one of the richest countries in the world. Let’s take a look back to the Nazi regime and its leader, Adolf Hitler. He became a threat to the world only when he could monopolize power sources to establish their ideology. In this context, I will explain how the executioner of Tehran has become a threat to the world.”

“During the last four decades, the Islamist regime in Tehran established more than fifty terrorist groups in the Middle East and the Iranian opposition continuously has been executed inside the prisons of the Islamist regime or assassinated abroad,” he stresses. “However, I should also admit that among the executioners, there are few top killers like Ebrahim Raeisi.”

Ahngari notes that there is a special ideological similarity between Khamenei & Raeisi, stressing that Raeisi has shown that he can implement Khamenei’s ideology very well.

“This is important considering that the full executive power including the military and the legislative branch are in the hands of Khamenei. On the one hand, there is a strong correlation between the regime’s ideology and its power base. This gives them the ability to spread their ideology in Iran, the Middle East, and some other continents such as Africa. On the other hand, the Islamist regime’s ideology is against international values and is a threat not only to human beings but also to the environment.”

Ahangari examines some important problems that the Iran regime faces these days: “At the end, it is very important to have a meticulous look at the regime regarding the economy, nuclear issues, human rights, the security system, etc. In my opinion, the Islamist dictatorship of Iran is on the decline. Therefore, from the regime’s point of view, the so-called presidency of Raeisi will save the Islamist regime and provides security for the interests of the regime’s main players. It is worth mentioning that Raeisi has also proven- in the past and his recent appointment as head of the judiciary- that he is totally on board with the regime’s agenda. Thus, Raeisi will do anything to save the Islamist dictatorship in Iran and this makes the executioner of Tehran a threat to world peace.”

Hesam Dastpish, a professor of Salahaddin University in Hawler, believes we are no longer facing an Islamic republic but an Islamic state, stressing that the newly elected president is going to pave the way to this transition. “In fact, the executioner of Tehran represents the mentality and practice of the hard core of the regime. Ebrahim Raeisi has no identity except as a saver of the regime.”

He then reminds us of the criminal background of the new president and continues: “The executioner of Tehran has no objective other than intensifying Islamic rules and empowering proxies outside of the country, the result of which would not be anything other than a real threat to world peace. Since the 1979 Revolution, Tehran has proven that creating crisis, exporting revolution, standing against peace, engulfing instability, empowering terror networks and so on are part of the regime’s identity.

Ewin Mostafazadeh, a human rights activist and a member of Kurdpa, states that “From a human rights point of view; as one of the four judges of the “Death Squad”, Raeisi is specifically responsible for the mass executions of the 1980s and the torture of more than 5,000 prisoners of conscience, as well as the 2009 massacre and the bloody repression of November 2019 during his tenure in the judiciary. In terms of increasing cooperation with the axis of resistance in the region; the Islamic Republic defines its identity and ideology as its hostility to the United States and Israel and to the Muslim world – the center of Muslim political decision-making,”

“For this reason, they formed the “Axis of Resistance” and gave financial and military support to their proxies and allies in the region, including Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq and Venezuela, etc. As Raeisi said in his first speech after being appointed as the president, the missile program will be unnegotiable,” Mostafazadeh says, “so this will be a sign of Iran`s foreign policy getting harsher, which destabilizes the region.”

Sirwan Mansouri, a Kurdish journalist based in Middle East, adds: “Ebrahim Raeisi who was a judge when he was a youth and also was a member of death committee involved in torturing and executing thousands between 1981 to 1988, has an audio file related to the matter that was published in recent years by Ahmad Montazeri which proves his criminal activities. He was also identified by families of the victims and those who survived from the mass murder of those years. Ebrahim Raeisi pays no attention to human rights and international organizations like Khamenei and works on the basis of Sharia and Islam and defends his past activities, since he views them to be in accordance with Islam.”

Masnouri says his election as president will affect the entire Middle East region and pave the way for terrorism and money laundering, alongside other crimes. He believes that Iran will try to create obstacles for countries seeking peace with Israel, will have a confrontation with the IAEA and the reconstruction of JCPOA will face serious difficulties

“His presidency will most probably be assisting terrorist groups, equipping them, sending them arms and money, etc. Ebrahism Raeisi like Khameni basically has no belief in world peace and does not recognize Israel as a legitimate country, so in his tenure, Khamenei`s policies will run easier and Palestinian groups and especially Hamas will start a series of new attacks on Israel.”

“The alarm bells will sound for the world powers,” Mansouri concludes. “I do believe if Europe and the United States do not work in unison in confronting this regime, the Iranian regime will usher in a new destabilizing period. The world should be united and stand up to the executioner of Tehran, before it’s too late.”
