The Butcher of Tehran Is Dead – Murdered Between 3,000 and 30,000 Iranians

The Butcher of Tehran is dead.  He murdered between 3,000 and 30,000 Iranians. 

Iranians can sleep better tonight knowing that the Butcher of Tehran is dead.

Ebrahim Raisi, the hardline Iranian president, who has been killed in a helicopter crash aged 63, was a former judge whose blatantly rigged election in 2021 was a rout for the reformist camp represented by the outgoing president Hassan Rouhani, who had advocated re-engagement with the West.

An austere-looking man who sported a grey beard and black turban (a sign of descent from the prophet Muhammad), Raisi was a disciple of his country’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei; he was a loyal apparatchik who rose quickly through the ranks of the judiciary after the Islamic Revolution, developing close ties to Khamenei and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

In 1988 Raisi, then a 28-year-old deputy prosecutor general, was said to have been one of the prosecutors on a four-man “death commission” in Tehran that “retried” prisoners in jail for political crimes and ordered the extrajudicial execution of thousands of dissidents.

This reign of terror came after Ayatollah Khomeini had accepted the ceasefire in the war with Saddam Hussein, a setback which he regarded as “a cup of poison”, and an attack from Iraq by rebel Iranian mujaheddin.

The exact number killed is unclear, but estimates range from 3,000 to as many as 30,000, the human rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson saying of this reign of terror, “It bears some comparison to the death marches of allied prisoners at the end of the Second World War”. Most were supporters of the main democratic opposition movement, and although Raisi denied involvement, the killings earned him the nickname the “Butcher of Tehran”.

This butcher died in a helicopter crash over the weekend.  Only President Trump had the guts to call out the corrupt and murderous regime to its face.

The people of Iran sleep better tonight until the next butcher is put in place.
