More than 40 years after the Islamic Revolution, is Iran an ordinary country? Is the name of a terrorist country fitting? All countries around Iran are concerned and everyone is protesting against Iran’s belligerence, against its so-called Islamic revolution.

In a revolutionary euphoria, Iran has just elected a new president, Ebrahim Raisi, and should we believe in United Nations’ terminology for a criminal, this very election is a sad reminder of a crisis for humanity.

Today, after the election, we have to draw some conclusions:

Ali Khamenei has already ruled and picked the candidates. And an extremist named Ebrahim Raisi has been the outcome of the election. Note that in Iran, there is no talk of elections, but selection is more appropriate to use instead.

More than half of the population in Iran refrained from voting. So, someone came to power who was conservative and remained conservative and was very dictatorial and murderous throughout his life. Therefore, what do we think about this?

This man has been the perpetrator of torture and execution of thousands of Iranians. He has been the prosecutor of several provinces, then the attorney general of Iran, and later the judiciary chief. If I can say, the Iranian judiciary. And that is why he has been chosen as a possible representative of someone who could succeed Khamenei.

This new president should be the subject of an international investigation into his involvement in crimes against humanity.

He is also accused of being a member of what was called the Death Committee, which had to select from among thousands of prisoners who were condemned to die and whose bodies were buried in mass graves.

Hence, in the field of human rights, this person is absolutely despised and in fact for 40 years, with the possible complicity of the president and the leader and the rest, Mr. Ebrahim Raisi has been a torturer and an executioner, someone against whom a global protest has already been shaped.
